I'm going to be nursing, but we will be pumping also so that DH and big brother and big sister can feed the baby as well.
We kept hearing all about this brand called Tommee Tipee from Babies R Us, so we went to check it out. You girls from the UK, I'm sure know the name since its been the best selling brand there forever and this is the first time its been in the states. We did a lot of research and it seems to be a wonderful bottle.
The nipple of it is designed for babies to help avoid nipple confusion and for ease and ajustment. They have these nipples where you can turn them and make the flow slower or faster. Then they also have an entire line of bottles that is PERFECT for babies that are extremely sensitive (gassy, colicy, etc) but the entire line is to help avoid colic. -This iswhat I love about them:

Nipple mimics natural feel, flex and movement of breastfeeding
Allows for easy transition between breast and bottle
Wide neck nipple for easier latch on
Anti-colic, anti-gas, advanced easi-vent™ valve
BPA & Phthalate Free
Graduations in mls and ounces
Hygiene Cap seals the nipple for travel

But they have everything from bottles, to paci's to sippy cups, to go with baby all through baby and toddler years!
Its exclusive to Babies R' Us (they are the only ones in the U.S. that are selling it).

So anyway, we bought the sterilizer and some bottles..and I can't wait to use them!

Here is a link to more info, in case any of you want to check it out:
closer to nature® bottle feeding

For those of you out of the U.S. Just type in www.Tommeetippie.com and click your country!

I have had a lot of success with Dr. Browns meaning no nipple confusion, gas, colic, spit up/burping that sort of thing, so I will most likely use them again but these look interesting. I will check them out at Babies r us, next time Im in there, thanks for the heads up.

With ds I found it was a total crap shoot, sometimes he'd taken certain bottles, sometimes he wouldn't, there was never a clear winner and we never bottle fed often enough to really care about anti colic business. We also don't bottle feed until nursing is very well established and like I said, not often enough for me to really worry about nipple confusion.

There were some glass bottles on clearance the other day at the grocery store so I picked 1 up. I don't even remember the brand. We'll see how it goes and if it doesn't work we'll try something else.

Luckily in Canada all baby bottles must be BPA free, so I don't have to worry about that.

with Syd we used the Playtex Ventaire bottles, she was a super pick with bottles. I have a bunch of Evenflo glass bottles and also Playtex drop ins so we will probably just try those first and if he likes them great, if not we will figure something else out.

I registered for a few different kinds....

medela
breast flow
playtex drop ins
Dr Brown's

I was told that it is a good idea to register for a few brands and see what the baby likes rather than having to run out later and buy them.

While I am going to breastfeed too, when I go back to work she will need to use a bottle. My SIL is giving us a ton on Avent bottles, so hopefully those will work out.

We're using Dr. Brown's again. Used them with Xander and had no problems (other than being annoying to clean)

Alie wasn't picky at all. At first we just used the Medela bottles, since I could pump directly into them. When she started sucking so much that the nipples would get sucked into the bottle, we switched to Playtex Drop Ins. I also have some Evenflo glass bottles I bought to use as a party game for a friend's baby shower that we might use this time. But since I'm considering being a SAHM after this one is born, it'll probably be a moot point anyway, aside from a couple times a month when DH and I want to get out alone.

Nuk bottles
Tommee Tippe
Playtex drop ins

and some other random but cute bottles lol

I've been going back and forth between the Tommy Tippe (that's the brand pacifiers I bought too) and the Playtex drop ins. I plan to breastfeed, but also want to bottle feed so DH can participate. Still haven't decided which bottles though. Anyone heard of Mam?

Leannd my friend SWEARS by mam bottles for her little girl. She is breastfed but since mom has to go to work she has to take a bottle and so far that's the only one she will take.

I am going to be doing formula. I'll breastfeed to get the colostrum and whatnot but then it will be formula. We're doing glass bottles. I picked up the evenflo brand so far. I'm going to get a couple of some other brands I saw. And my friend is giving me her plastic dr browns bottles, which are what I used with AJ and they worked wonders on his reflux. I would prefer to use glass though, so we'll see how Andrew likes them

I'm going to use what I have from DS - Born Free glass, Born Free plastic and some Playtex drop-ins.

He was fine with all of those. We also had some Avent ones, but in Canada Avent took all their bottles back after Health Canada issued the BPA warning, so I ended up getting all my money back for my AVent bottles and my Avent pump.

So hopefully this one will be fine with the Born Free and Playtex... i'd rather not go spend a ton of money on new!

We used the Playtex Ventaire bottles for DD and had really good luck with them...until the vent started leaking. DH's mom had gotten us a set of Dr Brown's bottles that we never really used because DD was doing fine with the Playtex ones, so we will probably start out with those and see how they work. One thing I really don't like about the Dr Browns bottles we have are how many little pieces you have to wash - makes bottle washing sooooo tedious!

Anything that fits my pump, but if this one is like my last baby he won't have a clue what to do with the bottle! Autumn didn't figure it out until she was 2 and trying to give her baby dolls a bottle. But I have always really liked the Platex Drop-ins, and my Platex embrace pump was designed for them.

I was talking to my mom the other day - she said that her and my sister bought Tommee Tippee for my nephew and they did not work well at all - they ended up taking them back to Babies r us and exchanging them for breast flow. She said thouse work really good.

We have bought some breast flow and some dr browns. I went through a ton of different bottles with my foster daughter and I preferred the Dr browns over any of them at the time.

I used Medela with my twins. It was a pretty good system for me - you pump right into the bottles, which I did after breastfeeding & then supplemented - but I felt that the nipples could have been a little bit less leaky. It worked GREAT with one twin, but leaked with the other who had a weak latch/suck reflex, so it's probably not the bottle's fault.

However, if I have problems with the new baby, I'm definitely going to try these bottles! Thanks for the tip! They look really great.
