We use Similac bottles. The only place I can find them is at Target. They're the only ones she'll take, because the nipples are smaller and it takes a while for her to eat with the slow flow nipples.
I'd make sure you have slow flow nipples for the Avent bottles before I'd go buy other bottles.
We use the Playtex Ventaire bottles and love them! :) We started with Tommee Tippee, and weren't fans.
FWIW, Aria is still on the slow flow nipples. She just doesn't like the faster flow ones. Our pedi said that it isn't necessary to ever switch to anything faster. The slow flow nipples are the closest to the flow a baby would get naturally out of the breast. If your baby does ok with a faster flow then it's fine, but don't worry if they never want to take anything faster. It takes Aria less than 10 minutes to down an 8oz bottle, even with the slow flow nipple.
We use the Playtex Ventaire and I like them a lot. My LO took to them right away and we've used them since day 1.
I also have 2 Avent bottles, and they're ok... but I do notice more of a mess all over her chin when we use that (I think it's the nipple shape).
I'm EBF and my daughter had a hard time getting used to bottles... we've tried Avent (hated them), Playtex Ventaire (slightly better), Tommee Tippee and Nuk. Nuk bottles have the most real-nipple (one side is flat like the way your nipple is supposed to be in LO's mouth). But we personally haev had the best results with the Nuk and Tommee Tippee bottles.
but when i let my husband feed my son he likes the new similac bottles with the thing inside that reduces bubbles
