    What brand of bottles have you decided to use?

    In the past I used drop ins but for some strange reason I want to try something new.

    I plan to breastfeed and express and I have some Tommee Tippee closer to nature, some Avent and some Breastflow ones.
    I used Avent with DD1 but found they leaked really bad, and used Tommee Tippee ones with the bobbley teats (dont think they do them anymore) for DD2.

    I have heard that avent can leak. I hear great things about Dr. Browns but Im scared I would lose some of the parts. I hear there a quite a few.

    Im strongly looking at Milkbank

    I have tommee tippee. I changed to them with my daughter cause I was sick of my leaky avent ones I used with my son.
    I emailed avent about the leak, they didn't reply but I do now know if they do
    Leak it's because the top is on too tight, if you undo it half a turn it stops the leak. They don't leak immediately it's after some usage it happens.
    I still use my avert steriliser, it holds my breast pump etc that I intend to use this time round as well.

    I am a first time mom so I asked all my friends and they ALL told me Tommee Tipee. I got the bottle warmer and sterlizer with it too. They are shaped differntly so that the baby can grip it better. I liked that. Plus it tells you if its too hot.

    Hi ,MrsN

    I've Avent here too , and from personal experience i figure out the antic colic ( white ones not the golden ) are leaking
    but if you noticed you will find the bottle cap consists of two parts
    one looks like a ring with white and blue color ( it's not screwed for tightening )

    if you look carefully on that ring you will notice an arrow , direct that head of that arrow
    to the start of the screw thread of the bottle and it won't leak

    it worked for me by chance , hope it help you as well

    Hopefully i'll breastfeed but back up plan (which was needed with dd1/2) is Tommee Tippee this time (Closer to Nature).
    I used Avent before but got tired of the leaky necks no matter what I tried to do. So fingers crossed these will be ok.
