We all go crazy over bottles.
I didn't know what to expect, and I wrote this post.
When I began to research and look in the baby section for the first time, I found the breastflow bottles. They are designed to be more natural and more like the anatomy of a breast.
" Breastflow is a feeding system that requires both suction and

I was skeptical, yes. I only got a few of the smaller bottles and one pack of the larger bottles. Well, my little girl's reaction to these bottles have made me a believer. My little gets three bottles during the day while I am at work, and she nurses just fine in the mornings and at night.
If you watch your little one feed out of these bottles, it does indeed simulate the let down. The milk easily dispenses back into the bottle with a little squeeze. If you follow the instructions for these bottles, they work like magic. We are only 2 weeks into this routine, but she does great! I can even give her the bottle, she takes it from me great!
They do have ONE measly little extra part to clean, but other than that, they are fantastic. Unfortunately, they are hard to find in stores, so I've had to search high and low to get them at a good price. Ebay has been the most successful place, but you can also buy them here, here, and here.
