Which bottles for breastfeeding back up?(3 Posts)
I'm expecting my 3rd child shortly and there is a substantial gap between this one and my older 2 - so I am quite out of the loop baby-gear wise. I breastfed my other 2 for over a year, but was caught out horribly with my oldest when I developed a really nasty vomitting bug when we were away in Spain and was unable to feed her as I was getting progressively more dehydrated. My husband had to rush out and buy bottles/formula etc and we had no idea what we were doing. This time I want to get a couple of bottles in advance and a microwave steriliser so I am not caught out (although, hopefully we wouldn't ever be in that position ever again!!) I will also, hopefully, use the bottles later with expressed milk. I used Tommee Tippee bottles before - but have read that you can waste quite a bit of breast milk in the top bit and that there are better options. Can't say I noticed this before - but would like to know what bottles other people use with breastfed babies - there are so many out there now!!
We use the nuk bottles with the latex teat (its brown).
Both my son and my daughter wouldnt take other bottles, tommee tippee, Avent etc The latext is very soft so its east for them to manipulate in their mouths.
Thanks Callipygian - I will take a look!
