Hi, Just wondering how many bottles are needed for when you get home from hospital?

We had six but bought 2 more since getting home. We also got the SMA starter pack with the ready made bottles which took the pressure off us for that first day home.

Depends on how you plan to make up your bottles. If you're making them up as you need them 2 is enough, if you plan on making them up in batches you'll need 6-8. If you're buying a new steriliser there'll probably be a few included. Not all bottles suit all babies tho so i wouldn't rush to buy loads and loads of one brand. I wouldn't bother with the smaller size bottle either tbh

I orignally started on the advent bottles and use to make 8 bottles but i was wasting 2 cause she barely taking them i had to change Dr Brown at 3 weeks and she's only taking 6 bottles she nearly 5 weeks now

I just got the big ones never got the small ones. I wouldnt waste your money on buying the small ones on Dr Brown bottles they cost so much to get and you'll only get a couple of weeks out of the small ones
