Hello! I have already met some of you wonderful ladies! I will be having my little boy in 2 days (c-section) and am planning on br___tfeeding. I want to go buy some bottles today, so that I can pump and let my dh bond and feed, as well. What type/brand of bottles would you recommend? I have been reading about all the different kinds and my brain is on overload! I think getting firsthand feedback is the best way to here I am! Thanks! ~Kim~

Avent-all the way, they are awesome. My dd loves them, and I have an Isis manual pump that hooks right on the bottle. My friends and step sis all recommended them, they work really well. That's my opinion.

Yep... Avent!

... Oh, yeah, but that said... I didn't start my oldest on a bottle soon enough, so by the time he finally took one (like 5 months) I had to try several brands until I found what he like (Playtex drop-in kind). So, sometimes they make you buy until you find what they want ;-) The other two were started on Avents and took right to it.

We've tried a couple of different brands, and my son likes the Playtex nurser with the drop-ins the best.

We use Dr brown bottles to start with they are a little expensive and a pain to wash but as she got older we just used cheapy bottles called tri flow she liked those alot.

avent! i love them, easy to wash, easy to pump with (my dd is 2mos.) and she loves them too- shaped like b___st, no problems with gas. i would HIGHLY recommend them, and i work in a childrens museum, where almost every mother i asked (while i was pregnant) said to get the avent ones! good luck!!! how exciting!!!

Hi I use the Dr. Browns bottles. They are expensive and a pain to clean. I'm sure there are bottles that work just as good and are less expensive. I think this time around I'm going to try the Avent bottles. Good luck to you!

Ditto Avent!

wow.. I'm kind of surprised at how many people said avent.. I HATED those bottles! They leaked like crazy! Was I buying the wrong ones?? lol... my favorite were the playtex drop-in bottles.. LESS DISHWASHING!!.. and you don't have to worry about sterylizing the bottle, which I was crazy about during the first month my son was born ;)

They will leak, if you don't make sure the lids are not tight enough. You have to crank the lids tight. It's just like me w/ the diaper poll, I was surprised how many ppl love Huggies, and w/ my dd they leaked all the time, I hate Huggies, guess my little girl's bottom just doesn't fit them right.

I liked the playtex nursers for my son.

We used Avent with my first and they worked okay but they leaked a lot. We chose to use Dr. Brown's bottles with our second and LOVED THEM. They are a major pain to clean but I'm used to it now. My son took to them so well and they prevent gas and I think help prevent ear infections.

i had to try lots of bottels i have not tried the avent although i have heard good things. we had to go with dr browns but to be honest i do not see a difference. i know lots of women who love the playtes and the avent so i would try those before going with the more wxpensive dr browns because they really are a pain to clean.

I have to say hands down I love the playtex bottles with drop ins! Both of my girls loved them, so Im definatly a fan! -Kristin-
