So I plan to try my best at breastfeeding, I know its a lot of pain at first, but is ultimately best for your baby. What is the best bottle for breastfeeding infants? I had originally planned to go wtih the Avent Natural Feeding bottles, but when in the baby department at toys r us yesterday, I found ones called Breastflow by The First Years and the design really intrigued me, I looked up the reviews on them, and some moms loved them, but a few didnt like them (I suppose that could happen with anything)



What bottles did you use for alternating between bottle and breast?

I'd recommend eaith the Breastflow bottle by the First Years, or the Adiri bottle.

i used the playtex drop ins with my son. I liked them also because you can just put the milk storage bag into the bottle... Ill be using playtex drop ins again when my daughter arrives

Don't use the Avent bottles!! The little girl I babysit used those, and they leak like crazy. It's so frustrating.

I really like the Breastflow one by TheFirst Years. The n****e is really soft, like the breast. My son is 6 months old, and has never even had a bottle of pumped milk... but I can get him to drink water out of that one, and that one only.

I use all different kinds, Isabelle isn't picky.



Avent, Playtex Ventaire (my favorite), Soothie, cheapo Target bottles.



As long as breastfeeding is well established, you probably won't have bottle issues. I introduced a bottle around 4 weeks with expressed milk. Now she gets supplemented with formula maybe once a day on average.

I did get a bunch of cheapo Luvs bottles and Gerber bottles which I dont think Ill be using at all, theyre the narrow nippled ones and I dont think they will alternate well with breastfeeding.

I know people who had no problem with the cheaper bottles... so just wait and see which works for you. I had a lot of problems nursing my first son, so I didn't even introduce a bottle to my youngest until he was about 4 1/2 months old.... that may be why he only took to the one that was most like the breast.

I'm using the playtex drop ins, I pump and give it to my son because he wont latch. I love these bottles he doesn't spit up much and no tummy aches!

seems to me drop ins would be best so what you pump and store you can just put that in the bottle, no pouring it in ya know?
