If you are using expressed breast milk, you are most likely only need the smaller sized ones. The reason being you need a lot less breast milk compared to formula for a single feed. Bookmark this page

so when your LO come, you'll know how much you need for each feed. Also don't be disheartened/alarmed that you need to pump multiple times for a single feed. (I mean as in thinking, omg, I don't have enough milk for my LO). Expressing is a faff, and a lot of us can't express much at all after our supply settles, even though we feed our babies to very chubby thighs and three chins.
