So what about baby bottles?
 
I still haven't decided if I want to breast or bottle feed so I think I should buy some bottles just in case but I can't decide which brand. With dd I used Avent but they leaked quiet a lot.

What are you ladies looking at?

I am going to breast feed - but got some Born Free bottles for when I pump. I have heard they really reduce gassiness...but I htink it is just what your baby prefers!

Going with born free myself, glass for at home and a couple bpa plastic for when we're out and about. I know several mom's who use and love them.

I'll be breastfeeding (as soon as there's no complications) but I like the Playtex bottles a lot. We used them from time to time with Max and I'll buy another pack to have for Meghan.

I am going to breastfeed, but also have to return to work, so I am going to be pumping and using bottles while she's with a sitter. I'm going with the BreastFlow bottles by First Years. The reviews are all fantastic on them and they're supposed to be great for reducing nipple confusion.

I am also using the breastflow by first years :) I am going to do both breast and bottle feed that way if for whatever reason I can leave her with whoever and if they run out of the breast milk I have pumped then they can use the formula but those are the ones im hoping to use lol considering im not sure if she will like them but I sure hope so :)

i registered for both the Born Free bottles and the Playtex Vent-Aire bottles. i have heard good things about the Born Free so i figured i would try them, but i used the Vent-Aire with my daughter and i loved them. it was a few more parts to clean, but it definitely helped with the gas and i loved that they had an angled neck.

I love the Playtex Vent-Aire bottles. We used them for Miki and rarely had any gas problems. I also put the Medela breastfeeding giftset on my registry.

I've heard great things about the Adiri, TommeeTipper, and Nubi bottles....I have 2 adiri's but they aren't in the house.

I actually love my Avent ones. Ususally if they leak, it's because you didn't twist it correctly. I had to use a breast shield with DS up until I tried the Avent bottles (at 4 months). Plus, I like that there aren't so many pieces to wash.

We're going to use Playtex Vent-Aires

I registered for Dr. Browns after 4 people recommended them to me....now I am reconsidering, sounds like there are some better options out there?!

we used Dr. browns with Grant bc of his reflux and then used playtex dropins with Dean. I'd definitely go with the drop in next time!

Re: So what about baby bottles?
 
I heard the snuggie bottles were good. Has anyone tried them? I registered for some of those and some of the Playtex Vent-Air bottles. Bottles have changed sooo much that I don't know what to pick!

I'm using the playtex drop ins! I LOVE them! Soo convenient! I do plan on breast feeding but I will have to go back to work so I will have to pump then so I actually bought the Playtex pump that I can pump directly into the playtex drop in and freeze it in the drop in and then defrost and feed from the same drop in! Pouring milk from one bottle to the next :) I used these with DD too and always just loved them!

We used only the Playtex Vent Air soley for Camille. They really helped with her reflux. We used them in the first few months for Addison because of her reflux but then used the plain Gerber ones after that. That was when the whole BPA thing was happening and the Playtex Vent Air weren't BPA free (that I could tell) at that time and the Gerber ones were some of the few that were and that weren't too expensive. Now I think pretty much all bottles are BPA free. I saw some glass Munchkin bottles with rubber grippers at Target the other day. I am thinking I might get a couple to try. We went through every baby bottle under the sun with Camille so we have pretty much tried them all.

We used the Avent bottles for Lily and I never had any problems. The few leaks we had were user error, so we just put the lid back on again and it was fine. My Avent bottles aren't BPA free though. DH picked up a few Medela bottles to go with my breast pump so we'll probably use those some. I plan to breastfeed most of the time anyway. My sister swore by the Dr. Brown's bottles, but at the time I was working and didn't feel like washing the extra parts in that bottle.
