I used playtex dropins.  The shape mimicks the breast and they are easy to use and clean.  All the pieces come apart and are dishwasher safe which is great.

My favorite was the Playtex Nurser system...that's the drop-in system with the big nipples. Second behind that was the Playtex Evenflo? system...the one with the angled bottle to reduce gas? I'm not sure of the name but you'd recognize them. The nipples are smaller but mimicked the latch on to the breast very well.

The bent bottles are the Playtex Ventaire System.  Again, extremely easy cleanup.

I think the nipple is the most important aspect.  I am using Dr Browns.  I am not that impressed with them BUT I love the nipples- the 'preemie' nipples are very slow!!!!!!!  This has been helpful for me since my babies were in the NICU and the moment they wake up they are demanding!!!!!!!!!  This at least makes breast feeding some-what comparable to the bottle!! When we were using faster nipples the babies would not even try to breast feed.  Hope this helps!

I like all of the above suggestions. Start using a bottle AFTER breastfeeding has been established (usually takes a few weeks). If you are having trouble w/ latch, spoon or cup feed. Avoid any artificial nipples until you and the baby have breastfeeding established as this may confuse the baby further (no paci, bottle, or nipple shield) :)

It's so great that you are making such an awesome decision. Come check out the breastfeeding community! You'll love & learn a lot there.

Defiantly the playtex nurser system! I used it with both my son and daughter abd plan to with this one as well. They each switched between breast, bottle, and playtex binky pacifier without any problems or nipple confusion. As stated in the post above as well as advocated by many, you are advised to wait to introduce bottle/pacifier, I disagree. I introduced pacifier right away and had my husband give then each a bottle ob their first night home. Again, we never had any problems. Playtex is great. Good luck and congrstulations.
