Fourth you ask? Your body is still full of pregnancy hormones as you adjust to life sleep-deprived with your new baby outside your womb.

recommendation for bottle brand while BFing

Just wondering what brands are best. I plan to BF but I know I will have to pump and bottle feed at some point due to school or work and sitters. What brand/s should I check into as to not cause too much confusion for baby??

US number 456,765 or so it feels lol scheduled for 12.28.15 to go over surgery details to remove upper pole of R kidney. Confirmed duplication (from renal lasix scan) of collecting ducts on BOTH sides.

My girl takes to the Avent bottles. The nipple are wider so it feels closer to the same thing.

Thanks for the reply aceofspaids!! How old is your baby? I did put the Avent brand on my registry.

She is 3 months old now. She uses Avent, Munchkin, and Playtex. The munchkin and playtex are supposed to help reduce colic, so I like them. But she takes well to all 3 brands. The Avent brand has Classic and Natural, she hates the Natural kind.

You probably have it figured out by now:-P, but I use the playtex bottles with drop in nursing liners, that way you dont have to wash the bottles every time! I was lucky, that was the first one I tried and it worked, so I am using it for my twins now too.
