last night we registered for the avent bottles with drop in liners. I plan to nurse exclusively, but want to pump too. Ya know have the pumping thing down in case I should need to, don't want to learn under pressure. Plus having a freezer full is like insurance. Anyway, if I pump into the liners, freeze, then they go straight into the bottle that seems like less handling, mess, germs, etc. The 4oz liners say their good for breastfeeding but the 8oz don't. Then there are other bags that specifically say they are good for milk storage freezing. Its all confusing.... Since I've never done this, I don't want to experiment in the beginning. I can experiment later once I have the hang of things. What are the best, easiest to use, storage bags, bottles, system? what do you recommend to a new mom with no family local?

I don't know what is the best since I'm new to this myself, but this is what I use:<br><br>
We got the Playtex Starter set. I like it because it has a variety of nipples to choose from so you can see what your baby likes. It also has 4 and 8 oz bottles. We just use the 4 oz ones .. so far.<br><br><a href="http://www.target.com/gp/detail.html/sr=1-1/qid=1177855674/ref=sr_1_1/601-7019717-9118538?ie=UTF8&asin=B000056HM5" target="_blank">http://www.target.com/gp/detail.html...sin=B000056HM5</a><br><br>
As far as storing the milk goes I REALLY like the Lansinoh freezer storage bags. The gerber ones I used seem so much thinner and fragile than the Lansinoh ones. I also like that you can freeze them flat and they take up less space. Although I am looking into the BM storage trays that can be reused so I don't have to buy the bags anymore.<br><br><a href="http://www.target.com/gp/detail.html/sr=1-4/qid=1177855873/ref=sr_1_4/601-7019717-9118538?ie=UTF8&asin=B000M16Y7U" target="_blank">http://www.target.com/gp/detail.html...sin=B000M16Y7U</a><br><br><a href="http://freshbaby.com/buy_our_products/milktrays.cfm" target="_blank">http://freshbaby.com/buy_our_products/milktrays.cfm</a><br><br>
I hope this helps. As I said, this is what I use and am by no means an expert. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngtongue.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Stick Out Tongue">

we are now using plastic bowls that are made for freezer storage alternating with gerber bf bags....i would like to eventually use only bowls because the bags get expensive if your baby will be using ebm on a regular basis...6$ for 25 and i use 4 a night 3 times a week
