Okay, as my screen name suggests I am a preacher's wife....so I'm creating baby registry info for mostly church members....<br>
so...<br>
I want to use glass bottles (for when pumping becomes necessary due to work and also as a just in case as I am BFAR <bf after reduction>)....but I found these nipples <a href="http://http//www.toysrus.com/product/index.jsp?productId=2815317" target="_blank">http://www.toysrus.com/product/index.jsp?productId=2815317</a> but they seem to indicate they work only in a certain bottle....<br>
does anyone know if they'd work in the glass bottles????<br><br>
Can anyone help a girl out??!!

The link isn't working for me, but don't the glass bottles come with their own nipples? But, yes, most nipples only work in the one brand they're designed for.

I don't know much about bottles, but greenfeet.com has glass bottles with silicone nipples that would be my first choice if I need to have some in the future.<br><br><a href="http://store.greenfeet.com/itemdesc.asp?ic=9201-01032-0000" target="_blank">http://store.greenfeet.com/itemdesc....201-01032-0000</a>

No advice, but good luck with the BFAR. A woman from my church had a reduction and went on to nurse her dd for 18 mos, and is nursing her newborn now without any problems or having to supplement. She did employ a lactation consultant who was familiar with BFAR so that if she ran into any problems they would be evaluated and hopefully corrected right away. I know it's all anecdotal but I wanted to share a positive BFAR with you.

Congrats on BFAR! I'm sure you already know of this resource, but the forums at <a href="http://www.bfar.org/" target="_blank">http://www.bfar.org/</a> were SO HELPFUL to me when I was having supply issues with DS. I wasn't BFAR, but these women really know their stuff about increasing supply. I also got the pump they suggested (Whittlestone), which I liked far better than the Pump In Style Advance or the Ameda Purely Yours (yes, I purchased them all and then some...). Also, if it becomes necessary, I just wanted to say that I had good success ordering Domperidone from New Zealand. The service was pretty fast and reliable. Best of luck!<br><br>

Don't know about your bottle question, but I am BFAR too. I've been nursing my first daughter for over 2.5 years and am looking forward to round 2. Can't recommend the forums (referred to above) enough. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up">

I can't get your link to work, but I do know if you're planning on using the evenflo glass, they do make silicone nipples (but the bottles actually come with latex), which I plan on using. I registered for them at BRU.

Thanks for the BFAR encouragement! I've been reading "Defining Your Own Success" and I've been getting a little discouraged...it's good that they focus on being realistic and I guess I need that but I'm starting to really stress about it!<br><br>
I think we're going to try renting a hospital grade pump for the first month or two until we know how things will work and happen. I've spoken to two lactation consultants and they are both really encouraging but also very realistic about everything...I'm just trying to keep my chin up.<br><br>
It's good to know there are others here with the same struggles....and with some success!
