When breastfeeding, do you need certain bottles to put pumped breast milk in?

I plan on breastfeeding but I also plan on pumping my milk so my husband can feed the baby as well and while I'm at work the baby can be fed as well. I'm a first time mom so any help would be amazing!

I was just wondering if there were certain types of bottles that you need to use or if any bottle would work?

Any would work. As long as it fits ur pump. But if u want u can buy the freeze bags and freeze ur milk and it will last longer. But u can feed them the breast milk in any bottle but I would get the ones that reduce gas and stuff.

I was told the same thing my son is a week old and tried feeding him in the bottle last night and he was choking on the milk because there was just to much coming out.  make sure you have the slow flow nipples for the bottles .I pump in between feedings and freeze it so my bf could feed him as well just can't till I do more research about the bottles
