Breast-like bottle reviews

We used the first years breast flow bottles with DS2. (I am our wage earner in the house and staying home with my baby is not an option past 12 weeks.) We had no real latch issues until my husband became a SAHD at 9 months and stopped using the inserts to the bottles. *sigh* Anyway I'm intested in trying other bottles if anyone has any suggestions.

I'm looking at
(these are the only other ones I know to exist)
Tommee Tippee
mimijumi
Bare

and any other bottle that is specifically designed to protect the baby's latch.

Reviews?

With my 6 year old, she would only take mam bottles. My 8 month old will take breast flow and Tommie tippee. I find that he gnaws on me less with the Tommie's. Good luck mama

We use Dr Browns bottles by day and he nurses at night. His latch has stayed fine.

We used the First Years Breastflow Bottle. It is designed so that the baby has to have a similar latch to nursing and they have to work for their milk.

It worked really well for us and my daughter had no nipple confusion, even though we had to introduce bottles to her at about two weeks old. The only time we had problems was when DH used a Medala bottle (basically just a regular bottle) and it took her a few days to get back on track.

I asked about the Breastflow here on DS and here is the link to that thread (I'm on my phone so it probably won't be hyperlinked): http://www.diaperswappers.com/forum/....php?t=1184709

Breastflow collapsed too much and caused too much milk to leak out for my daughter. We used Como Tomo.

Mimijumi was the only bottle DS would take. TT collapsed when he tried to suck and he wouldn't latch right.

Most likely nursing and typing. Please pardon any mistakes.
