    Planning to exclusively bf for at least 4 weeks but want a few bottles around ready - don't want to leave it too long to give ebm - hoping baby will take boob and bottle so OH can join in!

    Avent, Breastflow or Closer to Nature?

    i got a tommee tipee manual pump which works just fine and wasn't overly expensive

    it came with a free closer to nature bottle, but we never used that on isabel and just used breastflow...she hates bottle regardless of the brand so we just stuck with breastflow, but to be honest every baby is different so what works for one might be different for another. for this reason i'd recommend only buying one or two of each til you know what suits your baby...

    I use the medela harmony hand pump and nuk first choice bottles for Toby. We have avent bottles as they came free with our steriliser but haven't tried them yet as he seems to like the nuk teats.

    Every baby is different though. Hope you find something that suits :thumbup:
