We use bottles for breast milk when Im not home, and our little boy loves the Tommee Tippees. They are great!

we bottle feed breast milk, and we use exclusively glass: we have some medela and some dr. brown's.

I use playtex with the drop ins only. Its worked great for both of my boys and if you use them properly it helps to cut down on air in the bottles. Which means a less gassy baby. Plus it cuts down on the amount of time spent on washing the bottles too.

I tried the playtex ventaire before switching to Avent... I really like the Avent. It definitely helped cut down on gasiness with my little girl.

Dr. Brown's bottles is what i use most. My mother In-law suggests and gets them for me... but just about any will do, unless your baby may seem a lil gassy or fussy when you use certain bottles...

I use Dr. Brown's. They work very well for formula mixed with cereal. I tried Playtex Drop-Ins for a bit & their y-cut nipples are horrible for thicker liquid! I went back to Dr. Browns. The only complaint I have is that they can leak a little sometimes.

We use the NUK classic bottle, because it's the only bottles my son will take (he is also breastfed). The only negative about it is that I find it harder to get the formula to dissolve and get the lumps out, the wider bottles seem to work better for that. But I just shake it a little longer and harder and then add a drop of Infacol to get all the air bubbles to disappear.

I used Dr Brown for my first born, and Avent & Dr Brown for my 2nd child. Out of the two I prevere Dr Brown

Playtex Ventaire for sure! My daughter had colic and other problems and as soon as i switched her to the ventaire bottles, 90 percent of the problems went away!

I use the Playtex drop-Ins bottles. I just love them, and they're easy to use. there's alot less to sterilize, and they help reduce colic. My daughter alot less fussy since I started using them.

We use NUK bottles and soothers. He took the breast fine for the first month, but then started screaming so much he couldn't eat- and this was before he TOUCHED a bottle or soother, so it wasn't nipple confusion. He does just fine with the NUK bottles, and occasionally I'll still try to give him the breast, and he does better with it now than he did before!

I started out with Avent, and they seemed to be ok. Then I started to notice they would leak. It seems like as long as I put the same lid on the bottle it would be fine, but if I mixed them up after washing them they would leak. Kind of weird I know. One day an entire bottle leaked out on my passenger seat, so that was the end of the avent. My son was over 6 months old by this time, so I tried Nuby brand. It was supposed to be easier for them to hold and was supposed to massage his gums, since he was teething. I really like this brand for the older baby for sure.

I love the Dr. Browns. The avent always leaked, I hear you can buy something to fix that but I dont think you should have to buy extra to stop a leak. Dr. Browns help with the gas

Dr. Brown Bottles are by far the best we have used. I used ventaire (which leaked) and drop-ins (which are great for travel, but didn't help in terms of spit-up and colic), born free (didn't help with colic either) and Chicco (also BS when it comes to anti-colic "valves") Dr. Brown's reduced my son's spit-up and completely took away his stomach aches. My sister and cousin both experienced the same results, they are the best.

we use the dr browns....the avent bottles just did not work for our daughter at all..they were not easy for her to use...the playtex drop ins worked well too...but if i had to suggest any it would definitely be the dr browns, and with our little girl and her reflux these bottles have been great.

I loved playtex drop-ins with my son, but have used those since he was 6 months old (he's 2.5 years old now LOL) My daughter loved Breastflow, as she was a preemie and was breastfed to start. Then she got teeth lol... She is now 11 months old (10 months adjusted) and has been off bottle since 6 months old (5 months adjustsed) Really it just depends on yourself and child.. Every child knows what they like wonce you start using it.. I found this out the hard way with my son and daughter..

I love MAM, I've never seen another bottle for 11 oz. So hard to find here. I found playtex ventaire to be leaky at times

i use avent bottles, have been using them since my son was born and hes 10 months old now and have never had a problem with the bottle, i did have to change the teat though because my son couldnt suck on the round teat but that was something to do with my sons mouth and not the teat but other than that they are great and easy to clean. :)

i use playtex ventaire as well but we use wide nursers...i had heard that babies that get breastfed and bottle fed simulantiously accept wide nursers better (i have HUGE boobs, unfortunately so maybe it feels the same to them?) it helps with nipple confusion....good luck!

I use the playtex ventaire, they are amazing they have smaller nipples to avoid them inhaling excess air, I have tried to the Dr browns and Avent and found the playtex to be the best by far
