I like the Playtex VentAire Advance bottle. theres a big one and then a small one. I love them. Its good because they won't leak if you decide to get up and go somewhere in your house and it tips over and well you won't have a water spot like most bottles leave.I recommend this bottle. I LOVE IT FOR MY SON! I would put my breast milk in it also.

ur's is the good idea, but, pumping more times 'll reduce milk production. So, do breast feeding for most of the time for the first few months. Just try to pump twice or thrice in a day or less than that.This is the option if u have more milk, otherwise formula milk is best. As to my advise breast milk is not compared to any other formula milk. I use NUK bottles and teaks(nipples) for my 12weeks son. I have less milk and so, i'm feeding formula and my milk in 50-50. Nuk nipple 'll be like breast nipple in shape and this is the most comfortable one for kids to suck.

be prepared for anything! I was going to breastfeed my daughter. After she was born she latched on fine but we struggled for the first week and my milk never came in. I was devastated that I couldn't feed her. My doctor said there is no reason why but that it happens alot to women. Just make sure that you have a backup plan, and a few bottles in case.There are many different types of bottles to chose from, just go to your local store and find some that you like. Good Luck! Congratulations on the coming baby!!!
