    Just as the title says really. I need to go out in a few weeks and am really worried about my LO getting milk. She doesn't seem to like taking any expressed milk from the bottle.
    Any advice will be very much appreciated.

    We've had no problem using the Tommee Tippee but I know lots of ladies in the BF forum have had to try various brands before finding one their LO likes. I think it's usually a case of trial and error, good luck :flower:

    We use nuby and Oscar took to them straight away. We only occasionally give ebm though. I have a breastflow bottle too which I've heard are good but haven't tried yet x

    Tommee Tippee Closer to Nature
    Nuke
    Mam
    Breastflow

    You will probably have to go through a few before finding the right one x

    Sophia is fine on avent, we tried her with a breastflow but she didn't seem to know what to do with it so we went back to avent.

    I gave my DS an EBM bottle every evening so he was used to taking a bottle and he eventually took the Dr Browns bottle after trying Tommee Tippee, Nuk, MAM. I would say every baby is different so get ready to try a few
    Goodluck :)

    I use Playtex VentAir and he has done great with it from the first time we did EBM, and he has no problems latching on for BF still either!
