Get Ready for Baby Day 3: Feeding Supplies-WIN a Bonus Prize

Today's challenge is selecting the feeding supplies.

No matter how you are chosing to feed your baby, whether by bottle or by breast, there are supplies to get ready.

If you are formula feeding, some items you'll need to purchase- bottles and nipples, formula, burp clothes and a bottle warmer.

If you are breastfeeding, some things you may need to purchase- nursing bras, breast pump, storage bags, bottles and nipples, bottle warmer, nursing pads-either disposable or washable ones and burp clothes. You may even decide that you don't need any of those items.

When chosing bottles and nipples, you'll want to consider purchasing several different brands to try with baby. 

What is on your list of feeding supplies to buy? If you've already had your baby, what would add to the above lists? What was your baby's favorite brand of bottle?

One mom who replies to this post will win a CafeMom Shopping Tote.

I love Playtex drop ins I can't imagine using anything else since it reduces washing bottle just washing nipples . I plan to breast feed anyways but eventually will be pumping so daddy can help

Oh and a breast pump. My sister let me borrow her Madela pump in style but she sold it so I'm kinda screwed I really don't want to spend that much on a pump especially when my last two attempts to breast feed failed. Ugh

I breast feed and will more than likely formula feed after 6 months old.
I have already bought a manual breast pump during this pregnancy, but I always have an electric double pump.
I will have to buy new bottles soon, so that family can feed baby. My favorite are the playtex drop ins.
I also bought a new boppy pillow as well!
