    Default Best bottle/teat brand?

    And what's the difference between all of them?
    The other post about glass bottles got me thinking...
    What would be the best new born bottle you suggest I buy? I'm going to try breast feeding but want the bottle ready just in case.

    Can the no name be just as sufficient as the expensive brands?

    I just started bottle feeding ny DD for personal reasons. Shes 3 months and was breastfed before that. I was recommended Avent but I use Tommy Tippee bottles as she refused Avent (SIL had spare ones lying around and gave them to me). And I dont believe there is a 'best' brand. I think its just a matter of what you and your bub are comfortable with. However the teats are all shaped slightly differently with each brand so you might just have to experiment? Im not too sure on the glass bottles or no name brand ones. Sorry

    We tried the new medala calma the other day. It was DS first time on a bottle and he took it and fed straight away. They are expensive, but worth it, especially if you only plan to give the occasional bottle of ebm (I'm not sure if you can use them with formula.)

    Medela bottles in general esp the calma are great. Their flow is slower than the boob and it's harder for bub to suck the milk out. This is great cos bub prefers mum/boob to bottle cos the bottle is such hard work.

    Can use for ebm or formula but designed for ebm. Highly recommend it.

    I used MAM bottles and they were fantastic. The anti colic (I think) were great. Easy to clean and sterilize too because you didn't need to buy a sterilizer they come undone at the top and bottom

    I liked the Avent. DS1 is almost 4 and because all the parts are interchangeable he still uses his. Its now a nonspill water bottle for in the car ect.

    I had Avent with 1st but found cheap ones with my 2nd were better as the bottles were narrow and he could hold them better. As they got bigger, I swapped to coles brand as I needed big bottles to get 250ml plus formula in there and love them. I've kept to the Coles over Avent as they are cheaper to replace teats
