  • I had no problems with the Playtex bottles and liners. I bought them because I was breastfeeding, but they also worked fine when we switched to formula.

  • I use playtex drop ins. I never need the large bottles because babies don't need as much breastmilk. My baby is almost ten months old and takes the small bottle drop ins. They hold 5 oz. That is plenty for him.

  • i used playtex drop ins and bottles too. (my son took breast milk from them at about 2 months when i went back to work) they worked really well, but personally i thought it just got too expensive having to buy drop-ins all the time so we switched to soothie bottles and they work just as well =]

  • We use the Playtex Ventiare Wide bottles with the slow-flow nipples (so that she doesn't get used to the luxury of milk coming out fast). She goes from breast to bottle and back just great. I thought about using the drop ins. But when I'm freezing breastmilk in plastic bags, using plastic liners seems like an awful waste of a lot of plastic. And it's cheaper to not have to buy the drop-ins. Also, as long as your not heating up the actual bottle, which in the instance of thawing frozen breastmilk, you're not, you don't need to worry about BPA or anything.

  • Optimally, none. Bottles can cause problems with nursing, so they should be avoided whenever possible.
