What are the best bottles in your experience and why ?

Depends on what you want I think
Dr browns are great for colicky babies as have special air flow bit
Mam glass bottles are easy to keep clean and don't stain
We had tommee tippee ones as we had a tommee tippee electric pump so could use straight from that and saved sterilising extra bottles. As ds was 4 months when started bottle feeding that was fine. If from birth might have chosen different ones!

We used tommee tippee closer to nature and had no problems. I had to exclusively express from birth and these were fine.

I used Tommee Tippee as well, from 4 weeks. They were great, although I found DD needed the level 2 teats from early on - about 6 weeks IIRC.

Of course, that could have been because she was a little glutton!

Dr Browns are great but fucking annoying to clean. Used them with DS1.

DS2 is EBF and won't take any bottle hmm

We used the MAM bottles once I stopped Breastfeeding, I like that you can take them apart and sterlise them on their own in the microwave and not need a steriliser all the time. As they are self sterlising.

NUK latex teats were great for DD2.

Depends on circumstances really. As a preemie in SCBU the best for DS were cheap supermarket own brand which all the nurses recommended as they were the easiest/least effort for sucking. Tommee tippee etc. try to mimic a breast which is harder for them to manage apparently.

When he was a bit stronger we used tommee tippee as we had the starter pack, steriliser etc to match and he was fine with them.

Used Tommee Tippee closer to nature when I expressed and DD switched between bottle and breast nicely. She did get frustrated with the newborn teats though - we moved to size 2 when she was 2 weeks old. And now shes older, we use the variflow teats so she can control the flow

MAM anti colic ones that self sterilise are my favourites. I'm not sure why they are not more popular.
