We do a mix of breast and bottle. I use Playtex nursers. I love the disposable liners and they seem to give him less gas. I also am trying the NUK brand of bottles. The jury is still out on them.

We have dr browns that we use for feeding, Medela that we use for storage and some super cheap ones given to us at a baby shower after they were used for a relay (it was hilarious watching adults try to drink out of bottles) that I haven't touched since putting them in the bottle cupboard.

We tried Playtex Nursers with the liners but he still had a lot of gas. I switched to Avent and Will has almost no gas. So we have invested a great deal into bottles already. I hope Avent will work long term for Will.

We had a ton of bottles left over from our daughter, Avent brand, so Avent is what we are using, he hasn't had many bottles (less than 10 probably) and it seems to agree with him.

The only bottle we've had success with her using and not slopping eveyrwhere is The First Years one that came in a basket we got. But she rarely uses bottles so not too concerned at this point.

We have used Dr. Brown and Evanflo. She isn't fond of either of them and only will take the smallest amount of milk while I'm gone but then she nurses non-stop once I return home.

Now that I'm back at work, we're using some bottles now. This past weekend, I bought a pack of NUK bottles and JB seems to love them.

I used Dr Brown and Avent with DD..

I got a bunch of First Years Breastflow this time for transitioning back and forth between breast and bottle... tried them.. 

We're back to Avent..  they leak occasionally because of that extra piece you have to put on the bottle... but they seem to work and the babies are happy.

Playtex nursers here too! I used them with my 2nd and it is so nice...I need to buy a couple more...only have 2 right now and it's annoying to have to wash the bottles every single night because we only have 2.

I'm on my fourth bottle that Sebastian has rejected. We have Tommee Tippee, Nuk, Dr. Brown's and even a bottle from Medela that hasn't been released yet. It's called the Calma system and I got it because I participated in market research for the ad campaign. I was hoping that he would take that one, but he won't be fooled. Plastic is just not the same to him, even though what's inside the bottle is.
