Hi all, I hope to breastfeed but will need to buy a few bottles too for expressing and to have in case b'feeding doesn't work out. Can anyone advise on a good bottle brand that will be complimentary to b'feeding? Thanks!

Saw ones in the argos cataolgue that are breast shaped so may be good (I think they may be tommy tippee). Avent seem also to be good.

Id use the advent bottles much better and reduce colic.

i used the tommee tippee bottles when i was weaning DS off breast, they say that the teeth on bottle is made like a breast!

Thanks! I just read up on those "Tommee Tippee Closer to Nature" ones and they get great user reviews - I think I will go with those: [url:nt76ehzd]http://www.babyworld.co.uk/information/reviews/product.asp?id=425[/url:nt76ehzd] Another thing sorted..!

Babs007, I breast fed up to last weekend and my daughter is 16 weeks and I expressed...found it was great to allow DH to fed our small girl. I found that my daughter went from the breast to the bottle with no bother and I used the Tommee Tippee bottles that have the teat that resemble the breast...you can get anti colic teasts with them too.... best of luck!

CorkRebel, I cannot believe your little one is 16 weeks! Where has that time gone? Another recommendation for the Tommee bottles - that's great.

Just to say that TkMaxx often have Tommee Tippee botlles for half price if you're thinking of picking up a few of them. I just picked up athe Avent ones in the end as I bought an Avent Steriliser but don't know if that makes any difference.

I got a tommee tippee microwave steriliser in tk maxx this week. Was £10 so would probably be about €15 and it has 2 bottles with it too. So thats good value if your thinking of using the tommee tippee ones.
