Okay I am soo lost. I have no idea what kind of bottles to buy, how many, what sizes, etc. I'm looking them up and there's so many different brands and types of bottles. Help?

NUK
Playtex vent air / dropins
Dr. Browns

I thought about buying some NUK... I bought the drop ins... because I really like those, but thinking of also getting some extras.

Everything made my daughter choke as a newborn (except b**b) but I was forced to supplement due to low supply. The nuk bottles were the only thing she could handle. I think it has something to do with the n****e shape and where the milk comes out.

I use the Avent ones because I have an Avent breast pump and they fit on it...but I've also used Playtex Drop-Ins and Dr. Brown's.

We swear by dr browns. My son had horrible reflux right off the bat. We switched to them from regular bottles and there was a world of difference. Plus gas went from ridiculous to almost non existent (with the occasional gas drops as well).
We will be buying them with the next baby!

I never used them but bought the NUK pacifiers... and i'm not breast feeding but will be pumping so thats why I like the drop ins... easy to store... but I bought the Parents Choice drop in brand, they had the nursery pack for 10.00... but I hate the nipples on them... so I was going to try and replace the nipples out lol..

My DS uses anything. We have tommee tippee, Avent, dr browns. I have about 28 bottles. I'm so exhausted I'm so glad I bought so much bottles. I don't have to sterilize EVERYDAY! But every other day.
