  • Adiri makes a bottle that's shaped like a breast.

  • It has been my experience as a lactation consultant that you pick a bottle system, introduce a bottle between week 3-6 (before week 3 they can refuse the breast, after week 6 they fall in love with breastfeeding and refuse the bottle). One bottle everyday for the first week then use a bottle at the times you will be away from baby with work or school. Start with 2 to 3 ounces of breastmilk in a bottle and if the little one is still looking to eat more, put the baby to the breast so he/she can tell the difference between breast and bottle. IMHO, there is no bottle nipple like the breast. I personally would go with a bottle company that makes BPA free.

  • We liked the playtex drop in ones. We only used them on our first. But my second never would take a bottle.

  • Nuby bottles, with the breast feeders nipple. They were the only bottles my daughter took when we had to switch her to formula. MY friend also had a similar situation and the nuby bottles worked great for her daughter too.
