I got the Medela Swing, with questions.

A friend of mine had to switch to a double pump due to tongue tie issues with her son, and passed down the Medela Swing pump to me for the times I will need it.  I want a nice bottle set to go on my registry made for breast feeding moms, and I need some reccommendations please!  What bottles, besides Medela, will fit the pump?

Do you mean bottles to use for storage or bottles for feeding?

Just about any standard bottle. Ask ten moms and you'll get ten answers as to which one to go with; all ARE GOOD.

I will suggest you NOT put them on the registry. Buy the smallest pack or a SINGLE bottle of your choice. Because baby might have a VERY different opinion about your choice! BABY determines the bottle. You don't want to open a big pack to have that model rejected.

And when it's given... make sure you're absent.

 Ok, if you want to collect milk and store, I have only found Medela bottles to work with the pump.  I think Evenflo makes a smaller neck bottle that can attach to the pump.

gdiamante is right about bottles for feeding...

Snapies are amazing to pump into and store. they fit my pump, which was the madela lactincia (sp). you can freeze them, put nipples and use for feedings and all that.

Use medela bottles to pump....I would just get whatever bottles you want to feed with seperate.  I use Tommee tippee bottles

I suggest just getting like 2 bottles that fit and get the storage bags. I loved storage bags with dd they take up less room in the freezer

The Lansinoh storage bags can be used in the playtex drop in  bottles as well. I am using the MAM bottle...son loves them!  He also would take the playtex nursers.
