I plan on breast feeding but also using some bottles. With all the scare with the plastic bottles, which will you use? Plastic or Glass and why?

i plan on using glass bottles. i just dont want to take the chance of the baby getting sick.
when shes older then i will switch to plastic, but the ones where you drop the liners in the bottle.

I will b/f also but also pump. So I will use the Playtex plastic bottels with the drop in liners. That is what my mother used with me and my sister and I used with my DD. We all have turned out ok so far so I trust them.

Plus they were great with DD. They cut down on the gas and fussiness.

I am going to use the Playtex drop ins. Everything that comes in contact with the baby/milk is BPA free. It was the cheapest option out there. I would have done glass, but my baby will have to go to daycare, and I am unsure if they will allow glass. And daycare is mostly what I will use them for, seeing as I want to try to BF for as long as possible after I go back to work.

I was impressed. On Playtex's website, they have a list of all of their products and whether they contain BPA. And, you can register to have them send you a free bottle of he drop ins.

Hopefully all I'll need are milky ta-ta's like with Naden but if I have to buy a bottle I think I'll go with these...

Not sure if it is the same in the states but here in Canada you can return all your bottles with BPA and get your money back even if you have been using for some time. My sister gave me a ton of plastic bottles and I am going to return them and get more glass ones. I like the drop in too but the nipple is just too soft for Ben right now so I have wait until he is feeding better.

Ummm...did I miss something really important on plastic bottles? I must be way out in left field or something? I want to breastfeed, but I have never had a C-section before and just might have to do it this time around...can you breastfeed successfully after C-sec...I have just heard so many stories (with only a few successes in between) that with a C-section the milk never came in?

Do you have to bottle feed after a C-sec?? And what is wrong with plastic???

Guess I am a little behind? LOL!

I believe you can breast feed after a c-section. My milk never came in I guess cause he came early and my body wasn't ready. I just kept trying though and it came in eventually. If you are worried though you can always talk to a lactation consultant before.

You can definitely breastfeed when you have a c/s.Just make sure you can see a lactation consultant ASAP.I was really doped up because the spinal didnt numb me very well, and I was given extra drugs.The nurse who showed me how to breastfeed (I was loopy) showed me WRONG.I had BLACK bruises on my nipples where he was sucking so hard and getting very little.My hospital was super busy when Austin was born and it took me until the next day to see her.She even had to show the nurse to correct her.Eventually I dried up and couldn't breastfeed, but I really wish I could've continued.If you have trouble, do your best to stick it out.

Read up on the different positions, like the football hold, because that's probably the way you'll be breastfeeding.I was also having a hard time doing it with him in my lap because of the pain, but they also had to stretch my incision to get him out because they didn't think he was going to be as big as he was.

Even with vag birth I found my stomach really hurt after birth and the football is awesome.

I think the ladies answered the bf with a c-section part of the question...lol
as for the bottles,many baby bottles contain BPA.Bisphenol A is a hormone-mimicking chemical used in polycarbonate plastics .
This info has been out there for awhile, but is just now REALLY making it to te headlines and I am glad !!!
Bisphenol has estrogenic properties . tests have shown to cause health problems such as an increase in prostate and breast cancer, uro-genital abnormalities in male babies, a decline in semen quality in men, early onset of puberty in girls, metabolic disorders including insulin-resistant (Type 2) diabetes and obesity and neurobehavioral problems such as Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder.
here is a great llink to safe products....I also have it in our Helpful Pregnancy Info Subforum.
