Which bottle to use?

I'm breastfeeding, but I also recently bought a breast pump, for night time, or when DH wants to feed him. I want a bottle that won't confuse him too much from going from nipple to bottle. Which is the best (in your opinion) and what did you use or are you using? Thanks in advance! :]

i never switched between breast and bottle so i don't know much about nipple confusion.  my 3 dds were bottle fed and my ds is breastfed.  the bottles we used for all 3 of our dds were the playtex drop-ins.  we loved them and not one of them had problems w/ gas!  :)

I breast & bottle feed & i use Dr. Brown's bottles. My ds has no problem going from one to the other. I'm posting a link to the kind I use. I hope this is helpful.

The bottles with the drop in liners are good for nursing babies an much cheaper than the dr browns bottles.  I would change their bottles around 6 months though to a different kind.  I have seen it so many times before when I worked in day care... if you don't change the bottles around 6 months and you keep one using them... the child will have a hard time learning to use a sippy cup.  They don't have to hold the bottles with the liners up so it can be confusing for them when you give them a cup.  the dr brown's are good but not cheap.  I'm going to use playtex drop ins then change him to playtex ventair.  I never liked those little fat bottles... they are not as comfortable to hold.  ( I have used them all.)  Anita

I breast and bottlefeed my son and I first starting out using Dr. Browns bottles and they were great. Then I introduced the playtex drop-ins and he never got confused. I still use both even now. I think sometimes he prefers the playtex nipples better, but he is fine either way.

I love the Adiri bottles. They are a new design, the entire top half is shaped like a breast & is super soft like one too. They are really nice.

I used "second nature" bottles....they are also supposed to be specifically for babies who are nursed.
