Re: anyone never use a bottle for their baby?

I've never used bottles with any of my 4. We attempted to give them a bottle a couple times each but they never took one. I'm planning to try a little younger this time because this is our last baby and it would be nice if DH or a grandma could feed him once in a while. But you definitely don't NEED bottles.

No bottles here. I tried once or twice and that was it. Luckily I'd only bought one, 'just in case'. It took up space in our drawer for about a year, until I started hearing about bpA in polycarbonate bottles, so i tossed it. Spend that credit on somethink you know you need! If it turns out later you need a bottle, you can always get one fast at a 24 hr drug mart!

Re: anyone never use a bottle for their baby?

My baby might have taken one for a few sips way back when he was about 4 months but he's 19m and never really had a bottle.

Re: anyone never use a bottle for their baby?

I'd use it for other stuff. On the very off chance that you need a bottle, most stores have them.
My DS didn't have a bottle until he stole his friend's when he was a little under a yr. He never took one reguarly and never with formula but I've been known to give him a bottle of water when all the sippys are missing or in the sink even now LOL
He'll be 2 in Sep

Re: anyone never use a bottle for their baby?

just remember if you DO buy a breastpump, (medela harmony is my fave manual pump), DO NOT OPEN IT until you know you need it. They will not return it if the seal on the box has been broken. DS has never had a bottle either, but I HAVE needed to pump. he had an unexpected MRI, and had to be put under gen anesthetic. Had a nasty congestion thing, and I pumped b/c he was eating less and I was super full. Even if you don't feed bottles, it's nice to have a pump just in case (IMO)

As for the breast pump, I'm going to wait and see if I need to rebuy that too. I mean I can always manually express if I'm desparate right? It seemed so silly that I bought this breast pump and used it like 5 times.

We did sometimes with DD and it only complicated things. This time no bottles!
