I have always wanted to breastfeed. However, I get severe migraines and don’t know how they will be after I give birth, so if I have to take meds I’ll be bottle feeding. Any suggestions of registering, or do you think I should just wait to see what happens?

I would suggest registering for several type of bottles either way bc you never know which ones the baby will prefer.
I recommend the Breastflow bottles in case you do end up breast feeding…
But I would also get a couple other types with regular nipples, such as the Playtex ventaire (my son hated) or the Avent bottles. A lot of people use Dr Browns but they are expensive and I have heard that they are a pain to wash them because they have multiple pieces.
Just get a few of each and give them a try.

We used Dr. Brown. They are expensive and a pain to wash but were the ONLY one she would drink from.

I used playtex drop-ins http://www.toysrus.com/product/index.jsp?productId=2668176′ defer=’defer
They were the best that I could find for keeping air out. It’s a bottle with a liner and you squeeze the air out through the nipple. It was great for traveling, you just brought along a bottle of water, the formula, liners and bottle, no worrying about rinsing and cleaning afterwards. If I don’t Boyfriend or Best Friend this time around we’ll use them again. My son couldn’t latch on to me or a bottle, he was tube fed for the first week, all the other bottles gave him gas from the air.

I agree with registering for one or two of a few different bottles because you never know which ones your baby will like. The ones I’ve heard the best things about are: Tommy Tippee bottles, MAM bottles, and Breastflow. Personally, we use the Dr. Brown bottles, and I swear by them. But I also just sanitize them in the dishwasher, so I’ve never had an issue with cleaning them. 🙂
