Dd had really bad jaundice that breastmilk was making worse, so we had to introduce a bottle really soon. I would recommend waiting on bottles until she's like 3-4 weeks old so you don't have nipple confusion. It was really hard to get Dd back on the b**b. She likes the Avent bottles a lot.

We didn't introduce bottles until 7 months but she liked the dr brown bottles best.

My daughter never had a bottle, she refused them all. My new boy takes any bottle and still goes right back to b**b so we have just been using the Medela bottles that came with my pump.

My daughter is 4 weeks and breast and bottle feeds (with bm) and we use the Dr. Browns Wide bottles. She hasn't had any nipple confusion.

Mam was the only bottle he didn't get nipple confusion with. He had to work for the milk just like he does with my breast.

We used Nuk and he did not have any issues... we didn't start until 6 weeks and he didn't want to take it but he did when he got hungry enough.

I have a few similac.tommee tippee. avent.drop ins. breast flow.and those bent ones with the air thing at the bottom? same brand as the drop in kind just cant think of the name.
My friend has a few Nuk she wants to give me along with a couple more similac. i know the similac is mainly for formula because its got that mixer thing in it but the nipple is nice and wide so idk.



did anyone ever try the nuk kind?

I would!! We BF for 15 months with him having a bottle twice a day at daycare and he did find. he would only use that kind and I never had a hard time getting him to latch... he had to work to get the BM out of the bottle more then he did with my let down so I think that is why he still preferred me over the bottle. I know all babies are different but I am going to try Nuk again when this baby gets here and hope I have the same success!

Yeah I started working when she was 7 months, so she had to take a bottle she didn't mind them but doing both became too much for me. I regret it tons! She started getting used to the bottle and I got lazy when I realized how convienet it was when she could hold her own bottle while I showered and cleaned. We only breastfed until 10 months.

My daughter refused to take a bottle since I exclusively nursed once my milk came in. Nuk was the only bottle she took in the beginning.
