Likes/Dislikes: BOTTLE UPDATE

We found the bottle we like best now, and it isn't something we have to jimmy together like the Playtex/Gerber hybrid I talked about earlier. This is the Avent bottle (4 oz.), with the stage 2 nipple (with two holes, for babies 1-2 months old). I bought it today at Target, cleaned & sterilized it, and used it for the first time at his lunch-time feeding-- and it was amazing! He only took 10-15 minutes TOTAL to finish the whole bottle. With the other bottles/nipples, he was taking 45 minutes to an hour to finish it off, and sometimes he only ended up taking 2 oz. after all that time. I've fed him twice so far with the Avent, and both times he took less than 15 minutes to finish eating. Amazing! This is really going to make feeding time a lot less frustrating. Woo-hoo! The only downside is that the bottles are expensive... it was $9.98 for ONE 4-oz bottle at Target, and I'm going to have to get a few more now. Yikes! But at least we found the bottle that works, and we can stop trying all of the other ones. And at least he eats a full 4 oz. with this one, and without burning a ton of energy in the process. :)
