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.
Waiting a while totally makes sense! Thank you I hadn't even really thought about that part...yikes. I guess I knew babies might get lazy about it, but didn't really think about it.

I am hoping to stay at home for a while, but it really is a matter of what we can afford...well, and how quickly I can find a new job. I'm currently working two jobs 5 days a week, one a midnight shift and then a few hours in the afternoon at another job, and I know I will not be able to keep either of them once Baby is here. We just bought our first home last May and it has required a little more work than expected...as houses always seem to do, ugh!
