I wasn't trying to be "judgy" or anything - just you mentioned sometimes having to be away from baby. If you were planning to SAH, I was just trying to say you don't really need to plan for bottles at all, just go with the flow of things. Not hard to find bottles if you do need them, kwim?
I haven't got any great suggestions for bottles. Just the suggestion to wait a good 4-6 weeks before introducing bottles - or at least until you and baby have both figured out nursing really well.
Babies are lazy with feeding, and if they get a bottle (easy, instant flow) while they're still figuring out nursing (which takes a lot more work!), they tend to start getting fussy with nursing.
