For all you pumping moms!

Any bottle that has a nipple that is "most breast like" for when you have to pump?

We've just been using the bottles that came with our pump (Medela PIS) and he doesn't have any issues switching between bottle and breast. I bought a bunch of playtex drop-ins for when I go back to school, so we'll start with those soon.

I've got the ComoTomo bottles. They are awesome!!! Can't love these enough! The airflow is amazing- Lily has had no spit up issues when she gets a bottle. They are $15. A bottle, but totally worth it.

We've been using the playtex drop ins too. The Breastflow bottles I bought are supposed to be like the boob, but he has a hard time getting his itty bitty mouth around it.

With DD, we used the Medela PIS bottles at first but then she started refusing me around 4 months and we had to do a lot of work to keep her BFing. She didn't take bottles much then but her teething gave her a hard time and I think she just found bottles easier? We stopped with the Medela and switched to Philips Avent and Tommee Tippee bottles (that have a ton of parts but a really wide nipple base). My IBCLC suggested a wide based nipple like the ones I just noted and using the slowest flow so it's most like the breast.

Gah. I don't want to think about this....bc I really don't want to start pumping.

Our last dd would only take the Born Free bottles/nipples. We didn't have any trouble with them. Good luck!
