    The playtex drop-ins or second nature bottles are the main ones recommended by lactation consultants, since they are closer to breastfeeding and so may help to avoid nipple confusion.

    We started with the Breastflow bottles (we were supplementing in the very beginning) but all of a sudden DD wouldn't take them anymore, and we switched to the Playtex Drop-Ins, using the silicone Natural Latch nipple. Just a comment on those, the drop-in bottle liners are BPA-free, which is a good thing if you're concerned about BPA leaching from the bottles.

Is one preferable over another if you're going to continue breastfeeding?
    Hi,

    I am using the BornFree (made with Bisphenol-A free plastic) for my LO, she seems to like it a lot. I bf and use expressed milk in the bottle for my 5 week old. She has had no issues with nipple confusion (I have been very lucky so far!).

    Good luck :-)

    I have heard that the Adiri bottle prevents nipple confusion but I have no experience with it.
