My insurance plan finally renewed and now I can get a breast pump!

I know there is a thread somewhere with everyone's favorite bottle/ nipple type but I couldn't find it anywhere. So I thought I would ask again (or if someone wants to link the other thread, that would be cool too).

I never pumped or fed my first daughter with a bottle so I am a very new beginner. We would prefer glass bottles but other than that I don't know what I am looking for.

Any suggestions?

I've tried 10 or so different bottles for L and the ONLY ones he will take are the Playtex Nurser DropIns with latex slow flow nipple. I bought all of the "closest to breast" bottles and he hated them all!

We use the Playtex Drop Ins as well. They aren't glass but they are so easy to clean!

We also use the drop-ins. I used slow flow nipples with Grace, but they seem to flow too quickly for Anna. I'm trying the tri-cut nipples, because the baby controls the rate of flow with those, and they seem to be working better for her. We'll see how she does next week at daycare.

We use the Evenflo glass bottles with their classic slow flow nipples. Both kids had no problems with them, which was good because it was the first ones we got!

The only one he sort of takes SOMETIMES is the tommy tippee one with slow flow. He decided recently he doesn't like them. So might try the Playtex drop ins

My 1st used whatever, but she wasn't crazy about bottles and usually wouldn't eat when I wasn't around. My 3rd was never on them because I stayed home with her. With my 2nd and 4th girls, we used the Playtex EvenFlow, or whatever they're called. He doesn't seem crazy about them so I tried the Mam ones with the slowest flow nipple, and those seem to work. We still have the Playtex ones so I sent those to day care, but hubby tried one the other day with him, and he wouldn't take it so he went to the Mam.

Not yet, I haven't even gotten the pump yet. I am kind of a terrible procrastinator for non essential items. I am glad that I have some ideas now.

Have you gotten your pump yet? Did you find a bottle/nipple combo that works well for you guys?
