I was just wondering what kind of bottles that everyone uses.. I was thinking about switching brands and was wanting some opinions on what I should use.

We tried all kinds of bottles with my daughter because she had really bad stomach problems, the ones that worked best for her were the Playtex Drop-Ins!

We love and swear by Dr. Brown's. We have at least 1 of everything in our house. Dr. Brown's is the only bottle that has helped with colic, gas, and reflux. They are a liitle more expensive and harder to clean, but they are definetely worth it if you've ever experienced an all nighter/weeker with a colicy baby!

I absolutely love the playtex drop ins. We switch on and off from Dr. Brown bottles. Those work good too just a pain to clean.

I SWEAR by Dr. Brown's bottles. My son's formula seemed to be very bubbly, and would make him sooo uncomfortable. It got to the point where we would dread feeding. Finally I was introduced to Dr. Brown's from a friend and she said she swore by them too. They are expensive but WORTH IT!! He hasn't had ANY problems since. We don't even use the ones we bought before he was born. The only down side with Dr. Brown's bottles are, is they have a lot to clean when you wash the bottles. 4 different pieces, compared to two on a normal bottle. I do not care tho! You can also buy the different levels of nipples, premie to level 4 or 5?

i have used the Playtex drop-ins since my baby has been taking a bottle. they seem to work very well. i tried the ventaire but my daughter didnt take like she does the drop-ins bottle. it is also easier because i have to put rice cereal mix in the bottle with the formula so im able to buy the ceral nipples for the bottle unlike some other bottle .

I use Playtex drop-ins and love them. The liners can get pricey but I buy the Target Up and Up brand and save money. We have very little problem with spitting up or gas. Originally we tried the glass as my DH was afraid of the BPA stuff but those really didn't work well.

I've found that if you are bottle and breast feeding Nuk bottles and binkys work the best! I started my son on Nuks and it even helped his ability to latch on better.

My Sarah has been using Playtex VentAire bottles since day one and does very well with them. It lessens the amount of air she swallows and has had very few problems with spit-up. I wouldn't use anything else!

I use the born free bottles with my daughter the base of the nipple is alot wider so it was good for us because she would drink the milk to fast and choke, get really gassy. They are more expensive but they are worth it.

I prefered the Nuk angled nipple bottles... I like the fact that the nipple is supposed to be more natural and ortopedic.

We use Dr. Brown's too. I use them for my daughter now and used them for my son 1 1/2 years ago.

Dr. Brown's work really well for my baby and me. I agree with Bianca, baby sleeps really good at night due to less air in her tummy. My baby suffered from colic at birth, so tose bottles have been a life saver. She is 3 months now and colic has been pretty low key since I started using them.

With my son Ciaran who is 3yrs now i think i tried every bottle under the sun and couldnt get a bottle i really liked and that would stop him getting really bad collic. Most of the bottles were either leaking or he just wouldnt like them. With my son Connor though, Who is 14wks, i have only used Dr Brown bottles and i think there great Connor hasnt suffered at all with collic. There a bit price compared to other bottles but well worth it.

I was breastfeeding and had to stop bc it was getting to hard, he was getting confused and mad. I work long hours and this seems to be better for both of us, is has been a week. I think that I need to switch bottles bc he is getting gassy. I am currently using the medela bottles still, but after all the talk about Dr. browns, I am going to get some tomorrow. Thanks Ladies!

I have used the Dr. Brown's bottles with both my kids. My daughter was so gassy using other bottles that she ended up spitting up almost everything she took in and was losing weight. As soon as we switched to Dr. Brown's, she spit up much less and started gaining weight. We started out with them with my son (now 3 months) and he almost never spits up at all and doesn't get gassy from eating. They're a pain to wash, but well worth it in my opinion!

I use Evenflow bottles with slow flow nipples, also the cheap bottles from wal-mart that are $1 ea. My daughter was premature and has acid reflux and needs a slow flow nipple and she is 3 1/2 months now and is still doing very well with them.

My 15 week old son has been using the Dr. Brown's bottles since he's been born and we have no problem with them. He'll occasionally take the AVENT bottles but the Dr. Brown's seem to work best for both he and I

I have been using Tomee Tippee since my little girl was born - someone bought me a box for my baby shower and she seemed to take to them very easy. I use the NUK bottles at night as I am on formula with her and I give the NAN AR (Antireguritation) at night (more for babies with reflux) but I find it settles her more, anyway and she has also taken to NUK. As she gets older I will wean her off the Tomee Tippee and carry on the with NUK as I do believe these to be the best for teeth.

My son loves his Nuk bottles. They keep the air out and they are shaped to feel like a breast to the baby. They also leave room for teeth to come in properly

My daughters favorite are called MAM. They sell them at Babies R Us. They are a pain to put together because the bottoms come off but she drinks the whole thing when I give it to her. If you do try them after you put them together EVERY TIME before you put formula in put in a little water to make sure they are not leaking. Like I said they are a pain but what Desi wants.......

Born Free bottles...lots of parts to wash and sterilize, but we are happy with them, and baby has no problem switching between bottle and breast.

Well my 3 month old is using the Tommee Tippee, which are the newest bottles out there that are the closest to being like the breast. They are amazing, the nipple is soft like the sking on mommy's breast, they come in different sizes, flows, and even have one for colics....hands on i would recommend the Tommee Tippee. Hope this was helpful and God bless your lil one!

I am actually using the diposable bottles. They work very well. They are good for keeping the air out of the bottle as well. You jus buy the disposable drop ins and throw them away when done.

I love Dr. Brown bottles, they are great! It takes a little extra time to install the filters but my baby loves those bottles. I've also used Avent, they are pretty good as well.

I use Parent's Choice from Wal-Mart. The are BPA free and at a very good price. I use Evenflow nipples with them since the Parent's Choice bottles only come with slow flow nipples. At least the ones at my Wal-Mart do. They are easy to keep clean. I use to use Gerber bottles and they would get a film build up on them after awhile.

i use the soothie brand and the playtex nursers never had a problem with either of them my first loved soothie and hated the nursers and anything else..and my son he doesn't give a crap as long as he gets his food..lol so it all depends on your baby if you are thinking about changing don't get a bunch of the same brand get like one of the ones you are thinking and see if the baby likes it and if not you didn't waste a whole bunch of money :)

We use the regular Gerber bottles. My daughter likes them the best. We also use the Ventair bottles when we travel, do to the shape they are easier for me to feed her in the car.

I use Avent and First Years Soothie bottles. but the new avent bottles started leaking on me. I like using the regular ones, they come with an extra piece, but they don't leak. And I haven't had a problem with soothie. Their not expensive (3/$9), the nipple is supposed to be like the soothie pacifier if ur baby likes those, and u can attach the cap to the bottom of the bottle while ur feeding which is good cuz I lose stuff. lol

Cecelia Mae is my second child so naturally I assumed what I used with my son, Jacob, would work just as well. I was wrong. I used Playtex VentAire with my first and this time around the whole design of the bottle changed. I hated the new and improved ones. They only came with fast or slow nipples which was a pain. Slow was too slow and would take nearly an hour to eat 3 ounces. Fast was too fast. She ended up with most of the formula on her bib, and a very upset tummy form how fast she had to swallow. The bottles were also supposed to be dishwasher safe, well that they were not. After only a month the platic pieces that vented the air and held in the liquid shrunk and the bottles started leaking. Perhaps the most annoying was the fact that the numbers on the outside wore off from hand washing. Try pre-measiring in another cup, then making a bottle at 4 am...not fun. I finally chose Evenflo purely comfi and I absolutely love them. They are so easy to hold with comfortable grips that Cecelia even holds. The nipple flows are slow, med, and large. They eliminate air, hence no gassiness or fussiness. They are angled and very durable. They are affordable and come in some really cute colors! LOL! I haven't had a problem since purchasing them and would definately reccommend them. Hope that helps!

we use the Avent bottle they seem to work great for us as our daughter had a reflux problem and is on thicker formula and avent have teets specifically for the AR and thicker formulars which is so much better than putting extra holes in teets and trying to get the blockages out while u have a hungry screamin baby

I am breastfeeding and bottle feeding. I tried regular glass bottles like evenflo and munchkin, the cheaper brands with the small nipples. My baby likes the Born Free bottles. It is a lot to wash them because there are 5 parts to the bottle but they are glass (a must) and my baby loved the nipple. I suggest you use glass because they are much easier to maintain as far as cleaning. They don't keep any kind of stentch from the milk or soap. The only thing you have to keep replacing is the nipple and the vent part on the inside.

We use the Gerber Nuk bottles. I tried almost every bottle on the common market. She hated them all. Feeding time was frustrating for her and for my mom. But, I realized she liked her Nuk pacifier so why not try the nuk bottles. It worked almost immediately. Don't know what the correlation between that bottle and Breast Feeding is (I don't think my nipples look like that) but she doesn't have a problem switching back and forth. One of these days I may try the other bottles with the Nuk style nipples..but I don't want to push my luck right now. LOL.
