So far, I'm using Dr. Brown's wide neck bottles. No problems with leaks or nipple collapse. But there are a lot of parts to clean.
I use the Breastflow bottles (The First Years). LO wouldn't take the nipple that came with my Medela bottles, and the Tommee Tippee ones had too fast a flow for him.
I like the Breastflow bottles because they are supposedly more like the breast (requiring compression and suction), and he eats at a slower pace than with other bottles we tried. They are easy to assemble and clean.

I started with those, but they died. After maybe 10 weeks of using them the inner nipple got all warped and they didn't work right. I couldn't imagine having to buy new bottles every 2-3 months. Tommee Tippee was too fast for DD too. She still won't take those!
avent, few pieces, similar shape to breast.
the only leak if you put them together wrong or screw too tightly
Edit: bump burp.
My son was easy and used Evenflo for the first few months (he was a preemie) then we used Playtex drop ins. The evenflo's were small for his small mouth. The drop-ins are great as there are no 'corners' of the bottle to clean, you just toss the liner, and they aren't expensive, a box of 100 is around $7.
Cam hasn't had a bottle yet, but I am having a hard time getting her to use a paci. She just wants me and my boobs are going to explode from all the extra stimulation and overproduction of milk. I am going to try her with the Playtex and see how she does after new years.
I do have an Avent, Dr. Browns, and Evenflo for us to try with her as we did with my son, but they all are a PITA to clean & avent leaked dispite watching the video and reading directions for it not to leak - silly.
It's a good idea to have a few different bottles around to try. You never know what the baby will prefer. GL!
mie:I use Avent and yes, they are BPA-free. I like them because they are easy to clean. Some people complain about the bottles leaking, but that's only happened to me once or twice.
This. The only time they've leaked is when my husband didn't put the innner ring on before putting the top on.
I registered for Born Free but we had some Avent ones around that we got free (samples) so I used those first. She took them just fine so we returned the BF ones and got all Avent.
