Is there a bottle...

That is more 'breast like' and makes it easier to switch back and forth? Or does it really not matter, except baby preference?

Really doesn't matter. Whichever baby prefers.

Whichever baby will take. DS1 took anything. Mainly used playtex drop-ins. DS2 is much pickier. The only bottle the daycare provider can get him to take is tommy tippy I think. Only plus is she had some already so I haven't had to buy any yet. That will probably happen soon though so I can leave the house by.my.self. :)

You want ones that have a low flow rate to avoid baby developing a flow preference. The fact is, despite some pretty convincing marketing claims, there is not one like the breast or that can avoid all chances of nipple confusion or flow preference.

The Playtex Natrulatch always scores high among lactation consultants for good size and shape and low flow. Dr. browns wide based nipple scores high as well.

Nuk: bad shape (encourages incorrect sucking)

Medela Calma: really fast flow, not good!

When I went back to work my mother gave my son the playtex drop-ins. He only ate twice that first night and I felt awful...he fought the bottle for about a week and now he's doing greatt. I think baby has to get used to it. We also tried the similac advanced but he hated that one! Good luck!

Try a few! That being said, the wide nipple Playtex VentAir and drop ins worked well for us.
