Baby Due Soon- Looking for Tips on Breastfeeding and Pumping

Hello all- I am due in a couple of weeks and am looking for tips on breastfeeding, pumping and getting the baby to take abottle.

Avent or Born Free Bottles???

I am due to have my 2nd baby in January and I can't decide which bottles to use. I will be breastfeeding as long as possible but will still need bottles. I used Avent with my 1st daughter and liked them (that was before the info on BPA came out). I was going to switch to Born free but Avent now makes BPA free. I am also concerned with which bottle will reduce gas the most. I just can't seem to make a decision - any suggestions???

Born Free Bottles

Is anyone else having trouble with Born Free bottles? My son liked them at first but he seems to have a hard time now. I have to change the nipple several times before he will eat. I purchased new nipples which seemed to work at first but then after awhile the same issue was happening again. Anyone else have this problem? Side Note- I dont need anyones opinion on breast feeding! Its a personal choice to bottlefeed. If you feel the need to lecture me then don't bother responding. Thank you

Question About Born Free Bottles

I recently started using Born Free bottles with my 6 week old twin boys. Several times I've noticed that the nipple kind of collapses during a feeding - which is something the manufacturer says isn't supposed to happen. I can't see that it's causing a problem - it just seems weird since it's something they say specifically shouldn't happen. Has anyone else noticed this? Did you continue to use the bottles?
