What brand of bottles do you use?

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 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.

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.

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 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!
