my first baby used babisil glass bottles, that's anti-colic - the air bubbles go up the bottle so she does not swallow them. My second baby is now using breastflow. I tried to switch to a regular bottle but she does not like it. She cries til until she gets to feed from the breastflow bottles. she loves it. Its BPA-free and the nipples are really soft.

MAM Anti-Colic Girls' 5-oz and 8-oz. Bottle Gift Set, 3-Pack, BPA Free are an ideal substitute for breast feeding. Primarily available in a pack of three in pink and purple floral printed designs, these wide mouthed transition bottles will give your infant as close a breast feeding experience as is possible. Fitted with orthodontic nipples that are made from ultra soft silicone, they facilitate natural sucking action. The ULTI-vent valves of these bottles ensure air-free flow of liquid thereby preventing spitting and gas in the baby. These BPA free baby bottles are made from superior material that is safe for your baby. The removable bottom of these MAM baby bottles makes them easy to clean. The easy-to-read scale ensures an accurate measure in every feed. The sealing cap makes for spill-free traveling.
These bottles are awesome!

@tiffany - she is two months old with wicked bad gas problems. Never tried the sippy cups yet, but if they have as many pieces as the bottle then still worth it. A pain, but worth it all. My daughter would get the hiccups after every feeding, and that doesn't happen anymore thank goodness, and she burps so much better now

with my daugher I used the avent bottles along with the playtex drop ins. these were the only two she would use.. i tried about 5 or 6 different types and they were the only ones she liked.. pretty good for gas too and easy clean up with the drop ins you just take them out and replace with a new one and rinse the nipple off.. I sterilized at least once per week since it wasn't really necessary every single day..good luck with finding good bottle you and baby like!

i registered for the tommee tippee ones and my daughter could not drink from at all, a lot of the formula would just run out her mouth!! what a waste of money that was. the only ones she liked were medela, and recently i tried some other brand and she seems to be doing good with those. i forget what they are but the nipples are blue. she can only eat from really wide based nipples, probably because i tried to breastfeed when she was born, but that didnt end up happening.

We bought Tommee Tippee Closer to Nature ones when I was pregnant as I had used them in the nurseries I worked in and preferred them to the Avent ones that are so popular in the UK. But he had such a strong suck that he used to invert the nipples. Plus as I was breastfeeding and only giving the odd bottle of expressed milk we decided to buy a couple of Medela bottles and they worked much better for us as he had to really work to get the milk out and so didn't guzzle it down so much.
Now he is 10 weeks and I am having to slowly change over to formula feeding because of problems I cannot resolve with the breastfeeding, we have started trying him with the Tommee Tippee ones again and he is much better with them now than he was at the beginning. That being said, I still prefer the Medela ones, but the Tommee Tippee ones come a close second now.

my daughter is picky. She only drinks from the Breastflow bottles. She's a breastfeeder for sure and if it wasn't for this bottle, i don't think she'd take one. it's really a trial and error process though and each baby/mom/bottle combo is different.

In my opinion, Playtex with the drop-ins are the best! Reduces colic and your infant will not have as much gas! Also, you don't have to sterilize bottles all of the time...just throw the drop-in in the trash and start with a new one! Hassle free!

Breast is the best. I know everyone is saying it but it is true. you dont have to pay for it, wash it up or sterilize it. its always there when its needed and at the right temp, it is even thought that it can reduce you chance of breast cancer. i tryed expressing with my 3 boys after 4 months. i used avent bottles and found them ok but not as good as breast feeding. and tommy tippy closer to nature i couldn't get on with and my oldest get really bad colic with them. Do what is best for you and baby. :-)

I use the Playtex VentAire Advance as well... I'm a first time mom and took advices from all the people she knows and that seemed the most popular response. She;s 8 weeks and she has no gas and she's not colic...nothing.

I use the Playtex VentAire Advance because they help my daughter a LOT with gas...it let's the air out the bottom of the bottle when she's drinking it so she doesn't need to stop and take a breath :D
