Pros: Mimics the breasts BEST

I have tried a variety of bottles over the 6 years I've been nursing and the Breastflow is my NUMBER 1 favorite one. My babies love it, I love it. It mimics the breast very well. It is not too pricey either, and washes easily. I'd love it if they came up with glass bottles for it, but besides that it is about perfect.

Pros: mimics the breast

Cons: price

I bought some of these bottles before I went back to work. It ended up being the only bottle my LO would take for a while. I love that it requires both compression and suction to make it work and it is the closest bottle to the breast in my opinion (or rather my daughter's). They are a little on the pricey side to invest in if you are not sure it is going to work for your LO, It was however wonderful for my DD who only really had these bottles for expressed milk and me. They do require a little extra cleaning, but its not so bad. I also used to toss it into the Medela microwave steam bag to sterilize.

Pros: works well for exclusively breastfed baby

Cons: expensive, a little leaky

When I had to go back to work when my son was 5 months old, we went through countless types of bottles looking for one my exclusively breastfed baby would take. He HATED bottles. The Breastflow was the only one that ended up working. Leave it to my son to prefer the expensive one ;) I wouldn't necessarily recommend it beyond that as it did leak between the two nipple pieces. However, if you have a baby that doesn't want a bottle and only wants Mama, this one is worth trying.

Pros: BPA free, nipple mimics your breast, easy to hold

Cons: takes a little extra work to clean

I wasn't sure where to put this product, but I think that it is an aide to breast pumping devices and uses the end product of pumps. I'm a breastfeeding momma and don't like to give my child bottles at all, but on the few occasions where it's been necessary this bottle has been fantastic! I love that it's BPA free and has a comfortable base. The nipple is latex-free as well and is designed to mimic the shape of your breast as well as how milk flows from your breast. Baby has to work to get milk, just like from a real breast. But, because of the way it is designed to mimic that natural flow, there are two nipples that need to be cleaned, so it adds a smidgeon of extra work. It is well worth it though!
