Medela® Breastmilk Feeding Gift Set
What Would I Do Without It?!
I put this on my registry and am so glad someone purchased it for me. I goes with my Medela breast pump. All parts are interchangeable. I can use the large or small bottles with my pump, not just for storing milk. If you plan to breastfeed and get a Medela pump I would recommend getting this set.

Nice starter set
I am exclusively breastfeeding, so this was a must have. I registered for this but had no idea how quickly I would use it! I filled up the freezer bags right away and ordered more. I have been fine using just these bottles because I am not going back to work. The big bottles are great for the main bottle, but I like to keep some of the smaller bottles filled with just a little extra in case my son needs an ounce or two more. I generally keep two full bottles and about 4 small bottles in my refrigerator at all times.

A Great "Sampler"
It's important to note that I have been exclusively pumping and feeding breast milk to our son since we got home from the hospital, rather than breastfeeding AND pumping, so my review is a little different.
The smaller bottles are fantastic for the first 2-3 weeks of baby's life, when all they require is 1-3 oz per serving. I would pump and then have these bottles lined up in the fridge ready to go for him. (The nipple and nipple rings fit on the small bottles as well, which isn't clear from the picture.) These bottle are great when dealing with such small measurements, because you can see exactly how much they are getting, in half ounce increments.
The 5oz bottles are great when he started needing more than 3 oz per serving, which happened for us within the first 3 weeks of his life.
The storage bags are ok, (you can see my review for them my clicking on them as a separate item), but I prefer the Lansinoh storage bags (cheaper and they hold more per bag).
You can purchase a box of the smaller bottles as a separate set, and a box of the larger bottles as a separate set, and get more for your money. If you are not quite sure what your needs are just yet, OR if you are primarily nursing and pumping as a back up, then this may be the right purchase for you.

Great Starter Set
If you know that you are going to pump or are told that you need to pump right after the baby is born, this set is fabulous. When you might not be getting a lot of milk during the first few weeks, the smaller containers are great to hook up to the pump and make you feel like you are actually getting some milk. We were also able to use the smaller containers as bottles - first I would breastfeed and then dad would give small bottle with earlier pumped breast milk. If baby is slow to gain weight, then the docs want you to track how much baby is eating and you may need the smaller measurements.
