What an amazing wealth of information you guys have to share! Thank you so much! I looked at Tommy Tippee bottles at the store and they were cute - I think they're British and I'm a sucker for British products. And I'm sure they get their positive reviews.
But based on input so far, I think I'll start with putting Avent, Medela Calma and Dr Brown's wide neck on my registry and see what the baby likes. I was reading one of the Target registry brochures and they actually recommended starting by registering for just a few bottles, different brands, to see what works for the baby after it is born. And then buying more of the right kind. I thought that was a nice mild dose of anti-consumerism from the king of consumerism, Target.
Tenk, thank you much for your encouragement!! Yay, I can do it.
Oh and I started going to my regional La Leche League meetings. Great great great info shared there!
Another question... once I start baby on bottles of pumped milk and am back at work FT, how many bottles in total might I need??? No more than 6 to get through one day then wash them every night? Or more than that?
