Hi! I am going to breast feed, but want to have a couple bottles around just in case. Can anyone recommend a bottle that worked well for switching from breast to bottle? There are so many options I don't even know where to start. Thanks!
personally i liked the tommee tippee closer to nature (well kara did ) and i have used avent with all of mine which have always been good.
some babies take to different bottles so what works best is to the individual baby but over all *most* find it easier with larger (wider) teats that are closer to what they would get on the breast
Friends are the family you choose yourself and I love my JM sisters!
I agree with Sarah. It's which ever one your LO will take...even if that mean trying all of them!
My first DD took to the Avent teats and I mistakenly assumed that DD#2 would do the same so I bought a lot of them. In the beginning she did but after a month she completely rejected it. So my DCP tried her on the Mams bottle (wide teat) and that has worked great since.
I know of a gal who bought just one bottle brand, tried it with her LO and had to buy another and another until she found the one her LO would accept.
I'm hoping that your LO is an easily satisfied baby that she'll accept a teat quickly.

It depends on your LO. One will take to a certain kind of bottle while another will reject it. I used the Avent bottles and teats with both my girls and I've had no problem with them at all, but I think I was lucky. It might be a good idea to buy the smallest packs of bottles (usually 2s) until you find one that your little one gets on with.
Hopefully you will be lucky and hit the jackpot first time!
A good tip is to stick to the softest teats at first for a breastfed baby
