Title says it all 😉 Which bottles worked best for your breast fed baby or which do you plan to use? I was looking at Tommee Tippee & Playtex Avent and those both have really good reviews. I also received some Dr. brown’s at my baby shower. Any luck with them? Thanks in advance 🙂

We have Playtex drop-ins, DS doesn’t have any trouble switching from bottle to breast.

I registered for Tommee Tippee and BornFree at recommendations from my sister, friends, and coworkers.
The people I talked to loved Dr. Brown’s, but also said they were a PITA to clean because they had so many parts. I also asked about Avent but I keep hearing things about them leaking. I considerd Dr. Brown’s and if someone buys them I will try them, but otherwise I’m hoping one of the other two will work out for us.

Thanks! I forgot about the drop-ins. I wonder what the difference is between playtex avent and playetex drop-ins.
I like the “concept” of Tommee Tippee and I originally wanted those (still do), but people keep saying that I shouldn’t invest in a bottle because Lo might not like that particular one. maybe I’ll get a couple of packs of each and just see. Thanks!

Tommee Tippee! I’ve used drop-ins, Avent, Dr. Brown’s and TT… definitely had leakage issues with Avent. I’d just get a starter set of TT and see how it goes.

I’m using the medela…. but my baby has bad gas so I was thinking about trying something else.

Thanks, I think that’s what I’ll do!
Sorry about the gas issues. I hope another bottle solves that problem for you & your LO.

I don’t have experience with this as my LO is due in February, but I was registering at Buy Buy Baby the other day and the sales girl who was helping me is studying to be a lactation consultant (and also has 2 kids under 5), and she recommended Little Tummys Gas Relief Drops to help with gas issues. Obviously I can’t back up this claim, but it may be something to research 🙂

@MARIE901: We use Tommee Tippee, and I have had no issues with them whatsoever. I did research before our shower and they seemed to have the best reviews. I will say that now that we have introduced formula for the past few weeks, my son will sometimes prefer the bottle to nursing. I’ve read that happens because feeding from a bottle is less work that breastfeeding for the baby. it’s a little heartbreaking when it happens, but I am planning to wean off of breastfeeding by Christmas, so I guess it’s also a good thing.
My son has also used Advent at my Mom’s house, and also just some random generic bottle we had when all our others were dirty, and he’s had no problem taking to any of them.

Yes, definitely invest in the gas drops. They can be a lifesaver! Our little guy was really fussy for a few weeks at night from gas, and we later determined it was from the milk in my diet. I have since elimated milk from my diet and it completely improved, but those drops definitely helped us many nights!

We used Avent Aire when he was a newborn since the flow was slower, and it was great. We quickly switched to Tommee Tippee when he was a few months old and love them.

We swear by Comotomo bottles in my household. They work great and look kind of look like a boob. haha They have anti-colic vents that seem to work pretty well too. We have medela, advent, and adiri bottles in our house, but my son loves the comotomo ones. I haven’t seen them in stores, but they are on amazon and they have deals on them on zulily occasionally.
