    I FF and had 8, this meant that I only had to sterilise once a day. I did it each morning then made them all up and popped them in the fridge. I never ran out of bottles and just it just meant that if I fell asleep and she woke, OH had everything he needed to sort her out.

    I did exactly the same. I had six as that was how many fit in our steriliser. I'd say you're best off only buying the bigger (280ml) bottles as baby will soon grow out of the smaller ones xxx

    6 large bottles...I formula fed my eldest and this was more than enough...my others have been breastfed to start with and have never needed more than 6 in 24 hours. I wouldn't bother buying the smaller bottles-if they come in a set or with your steriliser then that's a bonus but I never really used them x
