    Dr. Browns, Born Free, or Avent?

    I plan to breast feed but in case for any reason i can't I want to be prepared. I breastfed my 1st so never used a bottle for her.

    We use avent - it has some sort of special flow thing so that the babies dont get gas...my daughter rarely has tummy troubles...she is 4.5 months and i can count on one hand the number of times she has been gassy

    I had the avent ones and thought my LO would like them and when it came time to take a bottle she refused. So when she started daycare I had to go get the First Year's Breastflow bottles and she loves them...no trouble going back and forth between bottle and breast.

    Avent :thumbup: we tried a dilfrax bottle just for hell of it but it didnt feel as quality as the Avent. Oh and the anti colic ring is a nice idea.

    When DS was first born we were using TT ones as I was BF and expressing. We used TT until he was about 8 weeks old and transfered over to MAM and never looked back.

    It's not so much what bottles us mommies prefer, it's what your little one will prefer and until she is here it's hard to say. I planned to exclusively breastfeed, not a drop of formula, and pump so that DH could feed him sometimes as well so they could bond and I could get a little extra sleep at night. Unfortunately, circumstances occurred and breastfeeding is near impossible. I suffer extremely low supply (pumping every 2 hours I max out at 8ounces a day), LO has a bad latch, insufficient milk removal, and gets distressed at the breast. So bottles have become a big thing for us. Before he was born we bought several Tommee Tippee bottles because I read they were the most natural for breastfeeding moms. He has a problem latching onto them and he dribbles most of it out the side. So we switched to Avent which seemed to be a great improvement, but he still dribbled a bit and had a tendency to eat too fast which caused spitup issues. Now he's on Nuk bottles and they are just wonderful, no dribbling, minimal spitup. The best thing I can suggest is buy one or two bottles of the brand you think you'd like and see how it goes once she's here. I've learned very well that just because mommy likes it, doesn't mean baby will. We've had the same problem with binkies- gone through 3 brands before finding one HE likes and it definitely wasn't the one I picked out. Of course lol.

    I brought a pack of 3 from ASDA for £2, theyre fine. Why pay £10+ extra for brand names??? I use to use TT, gave her bad wind. Avent are good, but no longer paying there prices.
