    I liked the Tommee Tippee closer to nature bottles and teats as they are rounded like a breast. I had no issue with breast/bottle confusion when combining breast feeding and bottle feeding.

    I used the same as Elle - Dr. Brown's wide-neck bottles and Avent Steam Sterilizer. For my first son I used same sterilizer, but Born Free Bottles. We actuallly tried the Tommee Tippee bottes with my 2nd son, but found that he didn't like them and his suck was also quite strong that the teat often popped out. I think personally as well, we prefer the wide-neck ones. I did gave my son all expressed breast milk via the bottle. i directly nursed only 3 times a day.

    This is all very helpful information. One question about wide-neck bottles. So I'm assuming wide-necks allow for a faster letdown of milk? If that's the case, is that a potential problem in switching between breast and bottles, given that mother's milk, in the beginning, will usually have a slower letdown?

    the wide neck bottles are suppp to be better for transitioning from breast to bottle b/c of its unique nipple shape. it's supp to help prevent nipple confusion. whether this is really true or not, i am not sure, but both of my son's definitely prefered them - we used born free wide neck and now dr. brown's. i also prefer holding them vs. the standard ones.
