I've had a lot of trouble with bottles and feeding.... If you are looking to combine feeding use the old fashioned slim line bottles. These mimic breast feeding and are less work for bub. This is what the speech therapists told us at hospital. We use pigeon teats with pigeon bottles and th cheap ones from big w. they are awesome. But the standard teats that come with the cheap big w bottles are great too.

Oh and the teats on the slimmer neck bottles are longer which help with the suck and a better seal, which decreases wind intake too.

I used glass Pigeon bottles and Pigeon teats, and had no issues with them. MIL (midwife) recommended them as ones they used at her hospital.
You can get them at some pharmacies, but I found it easier to order them online.

We've only used Avent and Tommy Tippee bottles so I can't help there.
But with dummies, I bought a pack of 2 Nuk orthodontic teat ones for $12 and she hated them, I think it was because the shape of the plastic bit wrapped around her face and dug into her chubby cheeks a bit. I bought some tommy Tippee cherry ones this week, pack of 3 for $5, these ones also wrap around but are bigger so don't dig in. But her favourites seem to be the old school, round cherry soothers, pack of 3 for $4 at Big W. These ones also seem to stay in her mouth better. So I'd start with the cheap ones and only buy the more expensive ones if bub doesn't like the cheapies :-)

DS would only take MAM an we tried all the other bottles too but once we found MAM we never looked back for bottles and dummies when he was old enough we also tried Podee they are brilliant as bub can feed themselves helps them learn to hold things as well, my friend with twins uses them an told me to google them they've been great help to me!
