Do you recommend?
Dr. Browns was rec'd to me so we have a few (though I heard there are lots of parts that are a pain to clean), we also have some Playtex drop ins, and some glass Evenflo (apparently I can pump directly into these).
Others have rec'd Tommee Tippee and Breastflow to me bc they most resemble human nipples which leads to less nipple confusion if you plan to BF.
I was pretty overwhelmed with all the choices/recs, personally. We'll see what works! lol
Some babies are picky, so it just depends on what works for you. I really like Born Free bottles. DS took to them easily and they didn't cause any problems with BF. They have two extra parts to prevent gas but they're very easy to clean and assemble, unlike Dr. Browns. I never had any problems with leaks either which I've heard has been an issue with Avent for some people.
I would just get a couple of one brand to start with and then you can buy more of that kind or try something else if they don't work. Choose a brand that has a wide bottle if you're planning to BF.
For the first two months we used Playtex drop-ins, they were good, but H complained about buying drop-ins. He thought it was silly since I washed the entire bottle anyway. So, when I switched to big bottles I just bought cheap Evenflow bottles, and I love them. My LO was not picky, but I know some LO's are so I wouldn't buy a bunch until you try that brand.
I had the breastflow at first. DS liked them, but he would get such a suction on them that I had to stop and get the milk back into the bottle (the nipple is a 2 part piece)
Then I got the Playtex Ventaire and he likes them. My parents have Evenflo and he likes those too. Both are the angled kind.
