Well I am doing the dr Browns. I used the 2 oz for like 2 weeks, and then for the past 2 weeks the 4 oz bottles. she is only eating about 3 oz every few hours. But from what I was reading around 2 months most babies start eating around 4-5 oz. So I would assume only for about a month or 2 at most. I actually had to buy a few more so I have 9, so that when the dishwasher is running I have 3 left over always.

Its hard to say... Iknow that with my son when I put him on formula he was on 4oz at 4wks old, 4wks later he was at 6oz & I had to go buy more bottles. Usually if u look around u can get bigger ones that attach to ur pump. I thought my Tommee Tippee one only had the 4oz bottles to then I found 8oz ones I think. When Ayden was breastfed he'd drink 4oz & still be starving that was at 2wks.

i have a ton of 8-10oz bottles that will work on my pump i just want to know if im going to need a ton more liners and if i should have more than 3, 4oz. bottles i don't think i will if i will only use them for a month or so if i start bottle feeding at 1 mo. but well see i guess i will get another 50 box of liners just to be safe and call it even thanx ladies for the info.
