Do you buy more expensive bottles or cheaper bottles?

For both of my kids I started out with using Evenflo or Playtex...big mistake. I wasted so much money on the bottles that either cracked or they didn't like. The bottles both kids ended up liking and using the most are the store brand name or the cheapest brand at Target and Wal-Mart. lol

Yes, that happens many a times and we dont some how realise or learn from our past mistakes. It has happened with me too with shoes that i had brought for my kids which were branded and supposed to last for a long time, beside the heavy price that i paid for them, but they broke and did not last even the next season! And when i brought a new pair for them from an ordinary shop , which wre half the cost of the earlier ones, they lasted for a good over two years! I guess, we also tend to go for the brand name and want the best for our child and dont realise that half the time either the kids arent liking the thing or they are too costly and something that we are buying for our own satisfaction more than anything. And invariably we learn this hard way that what the kids have liked, or something that was ordinary and simple, which was available around in other shops etc too, was better than what we had brought. It also happens that some of these so called branded shops claim to have the best things and it happens that they were not of good quality and not worth its price and by the time we realise this, its too late already. So , i think that we should often consult and let our kids also choose things, and them being children, let them have some choice and over all decision we can make , so that what we buy is acceptable to both, also we dont have to buy the most expensive thing for them, as its not a guarantee that its going to be the best and last :)

We tried a bunch of different kinds of bottles with my son. He would drink out of any of them until he was 6 months old. I did nurse him most of the time, but while I was at work, or when we were out, he had a bottle. The ones my husband liked best were the Playtex drop ins, so that is what we usually used. They were pretty convenient because we could put the bag of pumped milk right in the bottle, without having to worry about pouring milk or anything. Luckily for us, my sister used the drop ins for my nieces, so we didn't have to buy any. They were both exclusively bottle fed, so we had plenty from them.
