I've started out with the Medela bottles because they came with my breast pump, but now that I will be taking my son to daycare while I go back to work, I need to purchase more bottles and nipples. Which brand do you recommend?

I have used the wide playtex vent air with both my kids. The best thing about them is that they are easy to clean because the bottom screws off. Also the wide nipple seems to seal better around her mouth to help keep her from sucking in too much air. The only thing I don't like is the new BPA free ones that I have for my #2 baby is the number markings have rubbed off so now I have to use another bottle to measure with.

Quoting Janelle:

I use the brestflow bottles they work great


I've got these bottles coming and I hope they work! My almost 11 weeks old has been EBF so far. I've only got one more week of maternity leave before I have to put my daughter in daycare and so far she's refused every bottle we've tried. We've been trying for 4 weeks and still no luck. I hope the breastflow bottles do the trick!!

Dr. Brown's all the way. They are great and really cut down on gas and spitting up. I wouldn't use anything else anymore.

I started using the playtex ventair, they are the worst!!!!!!! Iam now using the playtex dropins much better!

Playtex drop in bottles work great. Less air, easy to clean, plus you can use the Gerber milk storage bags with the bottle too. Less work for the daycare provider.

I have used Avent for both my children and found them great, easy to clean etc! But I guess it would depend on the the child, might prefer a different shaped teat? Avents are suppose to be very close to breastfeeding!

When I have to feed frozen ebm or formula, we use Avent Tempo (disposable liners) and they are AWESOME. I also use the regular hard plastic Avent bottles for pumping. You can use an adapter so you can attach it to your Medela pump and not have to worry about transferring any milk from bottle to bottle.

I really like the Dr Brown's bottles. They are a little harder to clean, but it keeps her from getting as gassy.

Playtex ventair advanced... for me it was easier to mix the formula right in the bottle it was hard to mix with the liners... but still good for gas

Started with Avent, they leaked and baby had a lot of gas. Changed to Dr. Brown's extreemly happy.

Ive tried soothie, playtex, and dr browns...so far Nuk is that best, she can keep in it her mouth better and it doesnt pour out her mouth

I have Dr. Brown's, Avent, and Born Free. By far, I like Dr. Brown's the best! Yes, more pieces to wash is a hassle, but it's worth it. My daughter doesn't get gassy or colicky. I wish they had been around when my two oldest children were babies!

For my 2 girls I had to make sure I used a slower flow nipple, it didn't really matter what brand it was. I did use the wide playtex vent aires, the shape is much wider than most bottle which is closer to the breast, supposed to make it easier to switch from breast to bottle.

AVENT, have proved to be Ava's favourite. Being a 1st time mum I purchased a variety of bottles early, and used Cherub baby as they came with the breast pump. But the Avent bottles and teats have proved to be the best for us, wash so well in the dish washes - a huge bonus for busy parents. Best of luck

I use Dr. Brown's bottles and Advent's. My daughter loves the advent bottles the best. We also use soothie ones but she seems to have a harder time sucking on those

I introduced Nuk bottles to my baby after i stopped breastfeeding. Now she won't take to anything else! They are quite expensive, though.

we have done dr. brown with both our boys, they both have reflux and gas issues this has been helpful, but it is a pain to wash all the pieces, but i think well worth it.
Good Luck!

We are trying the Level 1 nipples & bottles with the MilkBank system. So far, she is taking them VERY reluctantly. Thankfully I have 3 more weeks of maternity leave to get her a little more agreeable! I have a coupon for the Nuk bottles, so we are going to try them as well. I tried the Nuby ones and she won't have anything to do with them at all. :(

I started off using the tommee tippee closer to nature range but they didnt last very long the teats stopped sealing around the top of the bottles so I switched to the avent range. I found the avent the best and the whole range is inter changable like you can turn a bottle into a sippy cup by attaching the different lid. Hope this helps

We use Soothie and Nuk. Nuk are supposed to be "more like the breast". It really is depends on the baby.
