Has anyone ever used this type of bottle? I've been looking for bottles that are best for breast feeding because after a month I plan on bottle feeding every once in a while IF I have to be gone for a few hours or would like to get some extra sleep. I tried the whole just pumping thing with my daughter because she had latching issues and I ended up not being able to keep my supply up etc etc and failed after 2 months :( I just want to change things up this time around. I'm going to strictly breast feed unless I have to pump and if I would have to I would like to have a bottle as close to the breast as possible so no latching issues will happen. So has anyone tried this bottle???

I have never seen those in person.
we use breastflow. neither of kids had/have a problem with them and then going back to breast. my daughter had a little latch trouble when she was new , we used a n****e shield.

I also seen the breast flow had good reviews. I also tried using a shield but she just couldn't get the hang of it!!

try filling the the "n****e with milk and then having baby latch. My LC had me try that and it work. took a few trys. We were able to dithc the shield after few weeks and she went on to nurse every 2 hours till she slef weaned when I got pregnant again. My son ( 5 weeks) is such a man. no trouble latching at all. lol

Have never used those (they don't even exist where I live), but they do look amazing!

I hope that happens this time around! I think it was mostly my fault for the issues. I was convinced in the hospital because I couldn't see how much colostrum or milk she was getting that she wasn't getting any. She was always hungry it seemed like. So against their advice I made them bring me a pump so I could see what she was getting. The nurse came back in after I was done and said she has never seen someone pump so much colostrum before and explained its usually just a teaspoon. I swear I pumped over an once. Paranoid first time young mother lol!!! But I think thats where all the issues started because I fed her from a bottle more then I did the breast.

Whatever bottle you use, get slow flow nipples, thats were the problems will occur.
