Brest to botttle

I nurse my little guy Finley and haven't given him a bottle yet but I do plan to start pumping and letting daddy take some night feedings. Does anyone recommend any good bottles that are close to breast? With my other three I nursed and used a few different bottles but none of the boys seemed to like them.

  • <---- Calma Medila bottle is great my daughter is 3 months old she has only had the bottle a hand full of times, but from the research I did I believe this is the best bottle and she has no problem with it. I like the fact that If she stops sucking the milk flow stops ( it has a 2 way valve) so she can pause as if she was on the breast. I ordered mine online from target $17.00 but like I said I like it.

  • I ONLY use Dr. Browns Bottles. They are excellent. I love the name Finley too BTW!

  • Avent bottles are what the lactation consultant gave me with my 4th in the hospital when I told her we planned to supplement. I tried the liner ones with my older 3 and none if them would take them. My sil gave me some dr browns so I tried them too. Avent were the ones we stuck with and I love that when we switched to sippy cups we only had to buy the lid/spout.

  • Big NO on the Calma. Internationally Board Certified Lactation Consultants have found that the Calma causes breast refusal.

    And to be honest, dad feeding night bottles can be hazardous to your supply. You CAN do it, but iof you do you must get up and pump while he feeds. Not much extra rest there! Better for Dad to take other things off your hands.

  • Dr. Brown's bottles were a godsend. Once I found those, my baby went back and forth from breast to bottle with no trouble.

  • I have a lot of friends who swear by the Breastflow bottle.  I have never really researched it though.  My kids did fine with the Evenflow Purely comfi.
