There are so many new ones now, very confused

With DC1 I used the classic Avent bottles (that's all they did then) but saw some new type in the shop the other day. Did not like Tommee Tippee because it seemed like the milk spilled out of them very fast, too fast, but they too seem to have an updated version. MAM were ok but a bit faffy with all the parts.

Only after some opinions as can't make up my own mind!

Medela Calma were faffy to begin with but seemed to support mixed breast and bottle feeding.

I like nuk bottles and they work well with mixed feeding. Whichever you but, make sure they fit your steriliser!

I used the original avent one with dc1&2

Using the new avent natural ones with dc3

Both have been great for us!

MAM self sterilising.

Nuk, mainly because they were good last time and Ocardo had them half price in a baby promotion.

I also like MAM but I'd rather just get away without the extra faffing about with the bases.

Dr Browns - faffy but easily the best in my opinion smile smile

I used Dr Brown for DC1 and thought they were ok but faffy. Used MAM for DC2 and was happy with them, so will get them again this time - I didn't find them too much faff at all.

My Advent classic bottles were perfect. Still using them now that all the bf'ing is finished. Got an amazing deal on Amazon for 2 small bottles, 2 big bottles, 2 dummies and a bottle brush. It was about the same cost as 2 large bottles usually cost.

I used Avent mam and then Dr. browns for DS, for this one I've just bought 2 of each tommee tippee, Avent, dr browns, and mam in case the dreaded colic happens in this one too.
Will buy more of whichever suits her best. With DS someone would recommend a brand and I'd rush out and buy six only for him not to get on with them and be a waste smile so much trial and error with little ones! X

I loved the tomme tippee bottles.myself and at least 5 of my friends all used them without complaint.

Dr Browns.

Only ones I will ever use now!

MrMacadoo Mon 03-Mar-14 21:44:32

another vote for doctor browns. you get used to the faff!

My bonkers sister gave me 3 Burberry bottles. They cost over £140. I am far to scared to use them! shock shock

Thanks everyone. For those of you using the new Avent bottles, I've got an Avent microwave steriliser from DC1 and wonder if they'd fit in?

I used mam ones for dc1 and will use again for dc2 (though we will get new ones as not convinced the rubber seals would have lasted). I like the fact they come apart for proper cleaning. We had a few dr brown ones which were leaky.
