Bottles for BFers?

DS1 would only take Avent, and the Gerber bottles that were similar in shape to the Avent.

Neither DS2 nor DS3 really took to bottles, the rare occasion I got them take them, I only had Avent in the house (I did try Adiri with DS3 and NOPE!)...

So.. I'm wondering, for this time around (baby due in less than 8 weeks)... Breast Flow, Avent or Tommee Tippee....?

Thanks

God bless!

We're using Dr. Brown's.

No matter what bottles you choose, there's going to be a day or two of adjustment. I just had to wait out miss thing over here. She eventually got hungry enough to take the bottle. Now that she is familiar with the idea, it's no big deal. She's a pro switch hitter.

Breast flow were the only ones that didn't cause issue with nursing DS. They're the most boob-like IMO.

I've used Avent with all 3 of my boys, but friends of mine have had success with Dr. Brown's too.

I <3 Tommee Tippee! My DD started taking it at 4 weeks and she's never had any problem with bottle or breast. Also, they go one sale buy 1 get 1 50% off at BRU all the time. Good luck!

Thanks. I've actually been leaning toward the Tommy Tippees.

God bless!

DS3 has never had a bottle, but most of my EBFing friends have had success with Adiri and Tommee Tippee.
