I would get one or 2 different brands (1-2 bottles of each) because you never know what bottle your LO will take.
DS was easy and we went with Playtex Drop-in's. DD, not so much. We tried several different brand before we found one she would take.
When I EBF'd we used Breastflow bottles and she took them really well. Then she got really gassy. Tried Avent, hated them. Tried Playtex Dropins and they made her gas worse. Now we use Dr. Browns and Ventaire and love them.
I EBF and we give our LO one or two bottles daily since I go back to work in March. Anyways, we tried madela and avent and LO took them but made her acid reflux act up worse. Then we tried breastflow, and my LO refused to eat more than an ounce from them. So we tried Dr. Browns and so far we LOVE them. Every baby is different, but Dr. Browns reduces her spit up which means that her acid reflux doesn't flare up as much when she eats from a bottle. GL! Every LO is different so you may have to try several brands before you find the "right" one.
I EBF and we really like the Born Free bottles. DD will also take the avents with no problem.
I highly agree with the pp's that suggest registering for several types - had a good friend who's LO went through about all the major brands before deciding on a nipple he'd use and she'd registered and received a ton of Avents...
