Same here. We used the breastflow bottles when we were worried abt ds's latch, but it was a pain to keep transfering from bottle to bottle. Bf babies often don't take more than 4 ounces, and it's sooo nice to be able to pump right into them. And they are cheap, and you don't have to worry abt leaching.
I know they sell born free adapters if you want to go that route for glass bottles (too $$$$ for me).
I also wanted to recommend the medela bulk storage packs-- they run abt 15 dollars for 12 of them, and we've found them so convenient for storing, freezing and feeding. I was able to score a whole bunch for cheap off of cl, though.
