Seeing as I'm due shortly and even though am planning to bf like I did Dc1, I still want to have a couple of bottles at home just in case.

A trip to the supermarket revealed lots of new types of bottles I don't remember from 4 years ago confused. Previously, I used Avent which then only had one kind, their standard ones. Did not like Tommee Tippee as felt the milk just spilled out of them, even on the slowest flow teat. I saw the new Avent bottles which looked a lot like the TT ones, and wondered if they were much cop?

Would love your opinions on the different ones and I'm struggling to make a decision!

I had avent anti colic ones but found they weren't helping lo's wind and colic and have changed to mam bottles. They are brill! And you can pop an individual bottle directly in the microwave to sterilise it if you just need the one. I got a started pack on amazon for £20 which included bottles, handle for later on, sippy cup bit for the teat for later again and a soother. X

I use Dr Brown's. My Dd had reflux and found them better than the Avent ones. You can use nuk teats with them which are more like human nipples.

I've used Avent natural, nuby and tommie tippie. I like the Avent ones they never spill, easy to see the numbers when making up the feeds,but are quite expensive now looking at other ones. Also when moving up to faster teats they seem to be the dearest. But stuck with them now.
I didn't like the way the TT felt when holding them, but did find the shape annoying when pouring water in.
I liked the nuby ones apart from I had to colour in the measuring numbers with a sharpie as they are difficult to read, ds liked them as well but as we had more Avent ones we just ended up using them all the time.
Never tried the mam ones but have heard good things.
