  • I used AVENT during the short time that I was able to Breastfeed, and she did not get confused. The nipple is wide and very similar to your own breast. But really, any nipple that is wide and similar to yours will work. Good Luck!

  • If ANY bottle is used before 6 weeks or so or too often it will be preferred over the breast, its easier. ANY bottle can be used for a BF baby though ones with larger nipples tend to be best, like avent, born free, up on about bottlefeeding a breastfed baby!

  • We introduce a bottle the first week... we use Breastflow bottles and haven't had any problems.
