Wont stop leaking!!

Hey ladies..maybe I could get some help on something I'm missing here. I really don't want to have to purchase a new brand of bottles as I already have everything for these and she is already use to them. I use the Avent natural flow nipple and bottle..love the look & shape but they leak!! Feeding her, testing the milk and also when I bring one on the go..milk everywhere. And I am exclusively pumping so any drop wasted is a big deal to me lol

Anybody else have this problem with these bottles? I've made sure I secure the nipple in the top and even stretch it to cover the spaces that may be causing the leaking..but still no luck.

Let me know what you are doing! TIA

Where exactly is the leak coming from? We used these briefly in the beginning and never had a leakage problem.

Top where nipple is and side where it screws on. I've tried everything..screwing top tighter and then not as tight, also stretching the nipple and making sure it's secure in the top. I don't want to have to buy new bottles so not sure what to do. It's the natural flow nipple

Weird. The only thing I could think would be if the nipple wasn't in correctly. With this type it should be flat or whatever. It's easy to have it incorrectly put on. Otherwise maybe the plastic it warped from the dishwasher or something.

I mean, the nipple opening is always going to "leak" if tipped but nothing else should.

Though if you shake it, open it, put the lid back on it could leak around edges.
