Dr Browns worked awesome with Nate, but after a while they started and kept leaking. It was such a pain in the butt. Plus there are so many parts to clean. This time we are using the medela bottles.

I loved the playtex drop ins with my dd. I am using those again with this kiddo. We used doc browns for a while and liked them, but we also had leak issues. I was looking at them at the store the other day and it looked like they had been redesigned a bit, so perhaps that problem has been addressed. I've heard good things about the tommy tippee (sp?) bottles as well, but I was so happy with the drop ins I'm just going to stick with that brand.

I'm a Playtex drop-ins fan! With Olivia (almost 6 years ago) we used the designer playtex bottles but the walmart liners. This time, I see walmart has their own brand of bottles and nipples. I bought a few and Sarah gave me a playtex starter set so I can compare. The walmart version are straight up and down like the playtex original version. The drop-in system is supposed to reduce gas because the liner squeezes out the air before the baby drinks and doesn't allow any back in. The only drawback (aside from it not being very green to toss liner after liner) is that you really need to measure the liquid before you put it in the bottle because the lines can be off.

I'm going to be nursing and pumping once I go back to work. I'll freeze the milk and store for my mom to give in bottles. I picked up the Playtex Drop-ins as well, as this is easiest for my parents not to have to wash a bunch of bottles and they heat up quickly in a pot of water.

Well, I'm not sure about reducing colic as I tried everything with my son and he was super colicky for several months, but I mainly used Madela bottles with him and that is what I will use mostly this time too.

My mom swears the playtex ones saved her life (I was preemie and colicky).
