I'm after some recommendations please as I am planning on bottle feeding baby and there are SO many different sorts of bottles out there. Are there any that you would definatly say go for OR definatly avoid?

I think its really individual- I used TT closer to nature as I planned to bf and mix feed and they are meant to more closely imitate the breast. I know others with colicky babies have raved about dr brown, some babies prefer the cheapy tesco bottles- might be worth just giving one that you like the look of a go!! x

There are so many, it's mind boggling! I bought tommee tippee ones with DD as I had already bought the breast pump set so they all worked together. Other than being a bit wide for some bottle warmers I was pleased with them and fortunately she wasn't colicy. It did work well for mixed breast milk and formula feeding for us.
This time I have bought the same again (and the electric steriliser as used Milton last time) as I was happy with them last time.

I breast fed my daughter but when we came to switching to bottles she wouldn't take anything from the TT closer to nature bottles but takes Avent bottles x

I breastfed my last baby but my first was formula fed from 2 weeks old and we used avent bottles and they are great. Nice size to hold, pretty universal for bottle warmers and spare parts are easy to buy. X

I tried tons of bottles and without doubt found MAM the best. I know quite a few people who had windy babies swore by them too.

Moominmummy, i second that. MAM teats worked for us. I breastfed until around 6 months and now mix feed.x

Definately down to baby and your preference - we use TT closer to nature, Aila had awful colic and my friend swore by Dr Brown so I bought a pack they were a big waste of money for us they didn't work for her colic and didn't fit our steriliser! I chose TT Closer to Nature because I planned to combi feed - the steam steriliser came with quite a few bottles as did the pump so we didn't actually have to buy any more bottles.

Like other ladies I planned to combi-feed, so I got TT Closer to Nature bottles. They're fab, I've never had a problem with them, and DD learnt how to hold it herself pretty early too.
The only thing is, if you get a fancy Pink Lining bag like I did, they're a pain in the bottom to fit into the insulated pockets especially for bottles.
