On an invitation to baby shower? We aren't making a registry but I don't want to end up with a bunch of breastfeeding stuff.

You don't. You just return any breast feeding items later, and if you can't return for whatever reason, you can donate it to someone in need.

I would just be pretty obvious. Ask for a ton of bottles of all sizes. Lol

Just say we need bottles and formula feeding supplies on your invitation I guess. Is there a reason though? Breastfeeding is so much easier and cheaper.

Awkward. I wouldn't mention it and just take back anything that didn't suit your needs, just like any baby shower. Or see if you can donate the breastfeeding supplies to a local lactation consultant or La Leche League just like someone was planning to breastfeed would do with formula.

I don't think you have to, just don't register for breastfeeding stuff and they will get the hint. I never breastfed and never received any BFing supplies at my showers. If you do get something, its usually pretty easy to exchange something without a receipt.

Don't. You will more then likely get doubles and have to return stuff anyways. Just return what you don't need/want.
