  • I liked the Playtex Drop In System with the Natural Latch nipples. I went back and forth between bottle and breast with no issues with that system. (I did have issues early on with the Ventair is a smaller nipple).

  • I use Born Free and a friend of mine who BFs also switched because her DD wouldn't take the other bottle but they both like Born Free. They are great too because of the system they use they don't get a lot of gas. I hated Playtex dropins! More than a couple of times the bags popped out and I lost ounces of breastmilk!! way too valuable for that.

  • I used Dr. Brown when I was still breastfeeding. It is supposed to be more like mothers breast. But who knows. I never had a problem. I also used Avent, and he still breastfed fine
