  • Well I used just standard plastic bottles. I didn't lbuy into the hype of the "best" bottles. A bottle is a bottle

  • i didnt want to buy into the hype either but she had alot of gas problems and reflux so these bottles were amazing at the time!

  • I've always used the glass bottles. That way I don't have to worry about BPA at all. They do break when they throw them, but it hasn't happened very often.

  • Bottles don't make any difference for reflux, reflux is caused by an immature esophageal sphincter, has nothing to do with food or how it's delivered. my kids both had gas, and there wasn't a bottle made that made any difference lol.

  • I've used Avent, but just because that's what I was given. I only used them for supplemental bottles anyway for my 4th and for the first 6 months of my 5th. I liked them better than the Dr. Browns (which I was also given).

  • With my 1st I used regular bottles, but did not care for them. With #2 and #3 I used the playtex drop-ins with the liners and we really liked them.

  • I bought the plaxtex ventaire and my son hates them. I went a vacation and bought some cheap gerber ones from wal-mart so i wouldnt lose the other ones and he like those better .

  • I bought all glass with my 2nd child.

  • I used the Dr. Browns as well for mine until they started burping on their own. Then we just stated using regular plastic bottles. Like the $2.74 for three pack at Wal-Mart...
