Got new bottles!!! We still have our Dr. Browns from DS, but I've been eyeing the Tommy Tippee bottles for a while and we found them buy one get one 50% off! Hubby was hesistant to spend more money on bottles, but when he walked over to me in the store, I was having a conversation with a woman who was raving about them and she just happened to be a primary care doctor who used to be a breastfeeding nurse before getting her medical license. He couldn't argue then!! Amazing how buying 6 bottles can get you so excited.
Yay for more purchases.
I've been looking at bottles and feel real overwhelmed. We used the Playtex Drop Ins with DS and had no problems with them and actually really liked the convenience of them. Especially for night time feedings. Already having the water in them at room temp and only having to add the formula shake and go. But...this time, money is a whole lot tighter(with me losing my job and DH being out of work as well and a full time student) and i'm just not sure I want the added extra expense of the drop ins each week to two weeks. But, then I get back to the convenience and ease of cleaning and sterilizing them and i'm just not sure. Sigh...
Jessica - I recommend Soothie pacis. Every baby I know that takes a paci loves Soothie the best. Those green Soothie are so ubiquitous for good reason. I think they sell them in pink too.
I will have to check out those Tommee Tippee bottles. I feel like I got super lucky with T because I have NO idea what brand we even used with him and he was always fine with it as far as I know. Now that I know that babies may "reject" certain bottles, I feel like I need to pay more attention to it. LOL

Got an opinion? We've got a board! Come join us for some lively debate on the Face Off! Debate Arena board.
I tried every brand of bottle with my LO and he just refused! If it wasnt a boob, he didnt want it. Im kinda leary to buy any bottles this time around. I dont want to waste the money and have this babe refuse them also.. However, I have heard lots of good about the Tommee Tippees.
I'm waiting till my baby shower before buying anything too... and its killing me! LOL I want to buy stuff so bad! We have bought a little onsie set and a cute onsie that says "Bugs" on it in cute colors but thats it. For Christmas my sister gave us some cute onsies too. Cannot wait to start getting more things though. I have no idea what these Tommee Tippee bottles are but now I'm going to do some research. They're good I guess?
I had the Playtex drop-ins and Avent bottles with my first. Then they recalled the Avent so I just used drop-ins. Just didn't like that I had to keep buying the liners but we didn't have a dishwasher so it made it way easier.
Then I was given a Born Free bottle with my second and always liked that. No extra parts, baby liked it. But I could probably count on two hands how many times my daughter actually used it! And I picked up an 8oz BF bottle for free from someone and she never used that one once!
I am a bottle feeder and we loved the Avent ones. I just took them down to sterilize them but this baby could do without them and we will need to buy new ones lol
