I LOVE Dr. Browns!!! My son has a lot of gas problems and my daughter had acid reflux problems and the Dr. Browns helped a lot, well at least with my son. We used them for my daughter from the start. But i love them, they are so great!! :)

We use the Playtex Expandable Drop in systems. I really like them. I like how the 8 oz liners expand to 10 oz. However my son is currently eating 7 oz per feeding. He is almost 10 months old. My husband and I picked this bottle out together so that is why we use them. Plus my son likes them.

I am trying different ones. LO won't take a bottle at all right now, and I really want him to so I can eventually work. He once took formula from a bottle easily, and now won't. We just recently bought a Breastflow bottle, so hopefully that will work.

Right now we're using the plastic 5oz Gerber bottles, she prefers the nipple on that to other ones I tried, I've also used these colorful nuby ones, ones that the nipple is supposed to have flow like the breast so was intended on for pumped milk, she gets nothing from them at all. Now I gotta either get the bigger Gerber ones or find another bigger one that she'll use the nipple.

@Ashley... I think Australia is only just starting to look into banning it. We're a bit slow you see (lol). Normally if the US bans something Australia follows suit. I'm glad they're actually doing something about it now though.

I started with glass bottles, my lil guy had bad gas and was throwing up a lot. We changed formulas and bottles and the bottle he likes best is the drop-ins. He will still use the glass bottles, but i can tell he likes the other ones more so we are sticking with them
I swear my baby will take any bottle i put to her mouth, but i use both nuk and playtex ventaire advanced. just the first bottle i used on her was nuk (because i attempted breastfeeding before.) and then i happened to have a playtex bottle also and i just use those. i love both bottles. i haven`t had a problem with either of them.

It isn't banned everywhere yet...some states have banned them. Most bottles I see in stores have a "BPA free" note on them. The FDA is conducting research right now and I have a feeling BPA products (at the very least for baby bottles and water bottles) will be banned in the U.S. completely.

I started using Phillips brand, Avent bottles but in Australia we've just had several news items about BPA (toxin in plastic bottles) so I've now switched to Dr Browns glass bottles, because the bottles I was using contained BPA (which they think may be linked to obesity, ADHD etc...) I heard that in the USA it's against the law to sell any product with BPA in it - Is this true?

Playtex Nursers with the Drop-ins, and Avent. I love using the Playtex when we are out and about since you just wash out the nipple and use a new liner. They work really well with my son who has had gas problems for most of his eight month old life.

I use the playtex Vent Aire Adavance and Avent. My baby does well with both, though she prefers the Vent Aire and so do I. That way she can sit up while feeding (has acid reflux). I wash them in the dish washer and by hand and have never had the number/letters peel/scrub off and when I was them I scrub hard!! They are easy to clean and put together. The nipple on the Avent is a little werid to my baby and often lets more come out of her mouth than down to the tummy.

I use parent choice bottles from walmart, love them and they are a little under $4 for 3 and to upgrade nipples its $2 for a pack of 3. I've tried several others and either I hated them or he did. I liked the gerber ones but its very hard to read the numbers

Right now our bottles of choice are the plastic Gerber ones, but we're going to have to upgrade soon (5oz just isn't enough anymore). I like them because they're easy for him to latch onto, you have a choice of silicone or latex nipples (with upgradable sizes per age) and they hold the most formula for a little bottle (5oz.when the others only went to 4oz. except for the vent-air which was 6oz.). We tried the Playtex drop-ins (he wasn't a fan of the nipples), the vent-air (which in my opinion is too expensive for no real reason), and the Evenflo ones (they weren't too bad but the nipples tend to be prone to leakage...).

avent plastics or playtex nursers. my daughter won't go near anything without a wide top, i think that's from her experience with breastfeeding. no orthodontic nipples either, as a matter of fact
my son's the same.
he found it difficult to feed from the standard neck bottles i got with my steriliser.

I also use the Born Free Bottles and I love them as well for the same reasons as you do! we tried the Dr Browns Bottles and they seem very complicated and you have alot of stuff to wash with them. My daughter would do alot of spitting up with them also.

I use Born Free Bottles and Playtex Vent Aire. I hate the playtex bottles though...I got them at my daughter's baby shower a month after she was born and the numbers peeled off right away. I only have 3 Born Free Bottles for now. I am planning to get more when I start working. I love that they still look brand new and the nipples seem sturdy. The foam doesn't go down into the nipple until the very end of the feeding...I like that. They look pretty cool too.
