So I have been off this baby scene awhile and i plan on sticking with what I know but was curiius what you ladies use.
I am a fan of the playtex dropins. My daughter was a very gassy baby and they were the best reasonably priced. My son i used medela bottles primarily cause they went with the pump and was convient...

Well, once again I will try to bf, but when I go back to work, it never works, so I found some Breastflow bottles on clearance and will try those. My last one used Evenflo glass bottles.

In the past, we've used Dr. Browns bottles and loved them. This time, I'm not buying any bottles unless I need them.

We used the drop ins for DS, this time however we are going to use the Playtex Ventair. We don't have to worry about always buying drop ins.

I've always used the First Years breastflow bottles and liked them in the past. I have one of those and then two Avent natural glass bottles that I'm going to try this time. I'll probably stop there until I find out what works and if we need more.

DD1 liked the Playtex Drop Ins and First Years Soothie bottles

DD2 liked the Playtex Drop Ins and also the cheap Gerber/Parent's Choice bottles

This time around, I think I am going to see if when I am not BFing he will take Tommee Tippees and then maybe the cheap gerber ones when he is a little older. I do like the drop ins, but I get sick of having to buy the liners and also, I saw that they have changed them! They used to come in cute prints and patterns and now they are all plain, half the reason I liked them was because they were cute LOL.

I used Dr. Brown's last time. Not sure what we'll do this time. I plan to BF while I'm home, but will need to be pumping and get her used to a bottle by 2 months when I have to go back to work.

I'm really unsure what the process for that is. Does anyone have any good resources/books?

I plan on using playex drop-ins, but I also got a couple free samples of the new similiac bottles we'll probably try as well.

At first i fell in love eih the breastflow bottles, but the extra pieces to it made me nervous with cleaning and having dh make bottles, i just wanted something a bit easier for him.

I have gone back and forth between tommee tippee and avent naturals. I am going to go with avent naturals. I have a sample bottle 4ounce of the avent natural and i like it. Never tried tommee tippee though so cant compare.
I am planning to breastfeed for the first 8 weeks exclusively, then pump when i go back to work.

We used Avent with the other two. I'm trying the new Avent naturals this time around.
The toddler I mind used Tommee Tippee and I liked those too.

The Tommee Tippee bottles are they made for breast feeding only (pumping) Or can they be used with formula as well?!

With my 7 year old and 4 year old, they would never take a bottle or pacificer. I have no bottles and don't really intend to get any unless I need them- I doubt it. I guess I worry that the baby will get lazy and not want to bf, so I don't introduce bottles/pacificers until it's too late. My two youngest went straight to a cup at about 9 months (water) usually going to a straw, but I let them play and experiment with the cup in the high chair. I had a really hard time breaking my son from the bottle and my oldest daughter from the pacificer, so it's better this way. It's tough to get through the first 6 months because it's ONLY you for nourishment, but it's worth it.

The last time I used bottles was 14 years ago and I used the avent ones because they attached to the manual breast pump.
