    You plan n BFing and pumping right? I think thats what you said. So far I think weve only spent $20ish and he has a TON left to last him a while.

    ETA- he has maybe one bottle every day or two.

    The bottle set here was about 17 bucks +/-. It came with 3 6oz and 3 9oz bottles. The drop-in liners are of course where they get ya. I buy the generic target brand liners for 2.50 (They're the same thing!!!). It's a pack of 50 and would last almost a week. And I have rinsed em out and reused them if he needed a couple more ounces an hour later or so. I would say you'll spend about $15-20 a month on liners if you go generic.

    I recommend em.

    I recommend them too. I buy the 100 pack but we are exclusively bottle fed and we go through about 4 - 5 bottles a day.. so it lasts about 3 weeks.

    I recommend the generic too! I used the Parent's Choice brand too! You can also compare the commissary price of Playtex drop-ins to the generics. I always buy what is less expensive when it came to the drop-ins!

    We use them and we bought the Target brand of the 50/4oz ones for $2
    They are like $7 for 100 I believe at Walmart here for the generic.

    We always bought the generic brand ones too. They really are just as good.

    I wish that I could buy the generic ones, but alas, we don't have them.

    So I spend $7.49/box of 100.

    She goes through them... maybe half/week?

    It varies.

    They are cheaper at the grocery store for me though.

    we buy the Target brand ones too and they are the spankin same thing. i've never had a problem with it and its so nice to not have to wash bottles except for the nipple. he eats about 6 times a day and so we probably don't spend more than $20 a month on 'em.
