    When I was pregnant, I was totally clueless about how to pick the right baby bottle. I was determined to breastfeed, but we were going to introduce the bottle early so my husband could help with the feedings. I also knew that, eventually, our daughter would need to take the bottle as a regular part of her day when I went back to work. So I asked around, expecting there to be a consensus that “X” was the best bottle that everyone loved and used. But, unfortunately, that wasn’t the case. I learned that every baby is different and likes a different type of bottle. Ugh! Amelia had yet to arrive, so how could I plan in advance? This was not going to be easy!

    We ended up buying a set of the 4 oz Medela bottles. They fit perfectly with my Medela pump, and my sister-in-law swore by them. She loved that they were small and light; easy for a baby to hold on its own – eventually. But we also bought a set of the Tommee Tippee Closer to Nature Bottles because the nipple was supposed to be “closer to nature” and my breastfed baby would like that. Right? Luckily, she did! And I loved that these bottles were easy to clean. Plus, they included a great formula dispenser that fit right in the bottle – ready to mix on a moment’s notice! That said, because the bottle is wider, it was harder for Amelia to hold, and it was hard to get in and out of my diaper bag. Even worse — it didn’t fit in our “universal” bottle warmer, so it was difficult to warm up the breastmilk. Tommee Tippee makes a great bottle for formula feeding; but we found the Medela bottles were better for breastmilk.

    Overall, if you’re shopping for bottles before your baby has arrived, I would suggest getting one of several different types until you figure out which one your baby likes. Also, if your baby has colic, you’ll want to go with one of the advanced, anti-colic system. Dr. Brown’s bottles are very popular (though there are lots of parts to clean) and I’ve heard plenty of moms say they love them. (Also, when shopping for bottles, don’t be distracted by the BPA-free advertisements. All plastic baby products are BPA free now.)

    What do you think, Mama? We’d love to hear about your experience with baby bottles and which you would recommend!

What are your 2 cents, Mama?
