I breastfed my daughter exclusively, but that doesn't mean I wanted to be her sole delivery system. Occasionally, it was nice to watch my baby eat from across the room. The only bottles we ever used were by Avent, and chose them simply because they were compatible with my breastpump and everything else in the Avent system.

Avent's literature says the nipple is shaped in such a way to make feeding more like breastfeeding. I couldn't tell you for sure. My daughter took to them easily, but I have a feeling she would have taken a sports bottle if it were full of breast milk. No matter how greedily she gobbled them down, she did not suffer any digestion problems when drinking from them that she didn't normally have. I found the bottles very easy to clean because there were only three pieces. I particularly liked being able to attach them to my breastpump and fill them directly for a sitter or grandparent.

The only problem with them is that the screw-on tops have to be threaded perfectly, or else milk will leak. It is unbearable to pump milk and then watch it leak, not to mention they way it stains, so consider yourself warned. Be careful to place the top just right before you throw it into your purse.

These bottles leak. They leaked 2 years ago when I had my daughter and I tried them again with my newborn son and they still leak. The wide mouth is great and they are easy to clean, but that doesn't take away from the fact that the bottle leaks. I also use the dishwasher (top rack with basket) for cleaning bottles and the more you wash these the more likley they are to leak. And its not just a little, when these bottles leak they LEAK!

    great for breastfed babies

    By 

    from USA

    Comments about Philips Avent BPA-Free Polypropylene Baby Bottles:

    only bottle my breastfed baby would take. Philips also gives you a free bottle coupon if you go to their website and apply for one.

    Child's Comfort
    my child seemed to be comfortable with this bottle since it was the only bottle she would take.

    Leak Prevention
    If you do not have the seal in the bottle there will be milk everywhere. Sometimes it is easy to lose the seal, otherwise there are no leaks and once you figure out the specific way to put the bottle together you won't have issues. Dads or others who don't feed baby often seem to struggle when asked to feed baby. It can be confusing to put the bottle together if unfamiliar.

    Ease of Cleaning
    There seem to be many parts to clean when cleaning. There is a ring that goes between the nipple and seal to prevent it from leaking. If you forget that or put it in wrong there is milk everywhere.

    Keeps Air Out
    Excellent at keeping air out and baby comfortable.

    Durability
    Very strong materiel which are comfortable to handle and continue to use with multiple babies.

    A good baby bottle!

    By

    Comments about Philips Avent BPA-Free Polypropylene Baby Bottles:

    I received these Avent Baby Bottles when one of my kids was a baby as a shower gift. I really liked them a lot. They are a pretty basic bottle. There's nothing really fancy about them, but they do work. I was looking for a bottle that would be easy for my baby to drink from and that wouldn't come out so fast that it was causing bubbles in their stomach. This one seemed to work well. I really like that it was BPA free. That was important to me. It also did a pretty good job of not leaking. It is very easy to clean and I liked the size of the bottle. I would buy these again if I had another baby. They were a pretty sturdy, strong and good bottle. I also like that it curves in a little in the middle. Give it a try!

    Child's Comfort
    It was an easy bottle for my child to hold on to and seemed comfortable to drink from.

    Leak Prevention
    It is pretty good with not leaking. From time to time you might get something if you don't screw it on right, but for the most part it's good.

    Ease of Cleaning
    For a baby bottle it was easy to clean. The bottle was a little wider so bottle brushes work very easily inside of it.

    Keeps Air Out
    It seemed to do a good job of keeping air out.

    Durability
    These lasted a long time and worked well. They are pretty sturdy. They didn't break or chip the many times they were dropped.

    Comments about Philips Avent BPA-Free Polypropylene Baby Bottles:

    I use these bottles for my niece, who is almost 6 months old. We've been using this brand since she was only a few weeks, and we love them.

    Child's Comfort
    These bottles are a good size and seem to be great for my niece.

    Leak Prevention
    I've never had one of these bottles leak, and the nipples are a good size. No problem with too much coming out.

    Ease of Cleaning
    These bottles are very easy to clean, and they dry easily as well. I wash them with regular dish soap and then put them on a peg to dry. There aren't a lot of grooves or anything like that which would make them hard to clean.

    Keeps Air Out
    These bottles do pretty well at keeping air out, but they could be a little better.

    Durability
    I actually got these bottles as hand-me-downs from a friend whose child had outgrown them so that I could have them for my niece. This makes it a lot easier for my sister to bring her over without having to pack up so much stuff. They are still in great shape, even after being used by another child for several months, so I'd say they are very durable.

    Comments about Philips Avent BPA-Free Polypropylene Baby Bottles:

    I think I had tried every bottle on the market when my daughter was born, nothing seemed to work. I bought these bottles after the pediatrician recommended this brand. She told me to keep trying and not give up if she wouldn't take it once. If she was hungry enough, she would eat. Well, my daughter was not that child, she was hungry, but would not take this bottle. I think the nipple area was too big for her and she could not latch on correctly.
    I wasn't too impressed with the bottle myself, it was too fat and not easy to hold. I was concerned that my daughter would not be able to eventually hold her bottle when she was able since it was larger than her little hands.
    I have no real complaints about the bottle itself, I am sure it works very well for others, but just didn't work well with my daughter.

    Child's Comfort
    I think these bottles are just too big. They are very wide.

    Leak Prevention
    I did not have any problems with this bottle leaking at all.

    Ease of Cleaning
    This bottle was very easy to clean.

    Avent Baby Bottles are the best!

    By

    Comments about Philips Avent BPA-Free Polypropylene Baby Bottles:

    My baby loves these bottles and is very comfortable with them. My child preferred them over any other bottle brand such as Gerber, Similac, and Nuby. A good thing about Avent bottles is that they are BPA free. I like that you can choose from, clear, pink, or blue. You can buy Avent bottles in the newborn size and larger sizes. You can purchase a single bottle, multi-pack or a gift set. These bottles are easy to clean. Also, they prevent air from escaping. You can get different nipple sizes as your child needs them. These bottles are very durable and last a very long time. The only thing I did not like about these bottles is that you have to remember to put the adapter inside the bottle. If you do not remember to put the adapter in the bottle, the bottle will leak! Avent bottles may be expensive, but they are great quality and well worth the money spent. Overall, I would recommend Avent bottles.

    Comments about Philips Avent BPA-Free Polypropylene Baby Bottles:

    I think these baby bottles are great. I like that they are wider and not tall. They do not leak and I found them to be very easy to take a part for cleaning. What I liked about these bottles is that they are BPA free which is so important as a new mom. I went from nursing to using these bottles and my baby had no trouble going to these bottles, this was very important to me. One of the best features of these bottles is they do not leak! If you put all the pieces on correctly there will be no mess! This was very important to me as a parent you are already a mess so it helps that the bottle isn't making a mess on top of everything else! My baby was not very gassy so it is hard for me to tell if these bottles helped or did not help but overall my baby did not have gas. I would suggest checking out bottles if your baby is gassy as I am not sure this is the best bottle to prevent gas bubbles. Overall, I really do like these bottles.

    Great Bottles

    Comments about Philips Avent BPA-Free Polypropylene Baby Bottles:

    I loved the plastic Avent bottles. I used them for my 2 boys in conjunction with nursing. The shape is so easy to hold, the wide mouth always made cleaning these bottles super easy. Both my boys took to the avent nipples easily, since they were soft and most like nursing. When using a powder formula, it is also easier to have the large mouth bottle for mixing right in the bottle. I have never had a problem with these bottles leaking, and they are fabulous for keeping the air out. Neither of my boys had any trouble with gas, and spitting up was very minimal. I relate all of that to the bottles. Even as the boys got older, they were able to hold these bottles comfortably. The Durablility of the plastic is great, I never had to replace them. With all the hype about PBA in plastics, it was so reassuring to know that Avent bottles are PBA free. Love love love these bottles, and assortment of nipples and sizes of bottles. I absolutley recommend Avent.

    I absolutely love these bottles

    Comments about Philips Avent BPA-Free Polypropylene Baby Bottles:

    I love the Avent bottles, and have tried several other brands. The best part about these bottles is the ease of washing them by hand. I can fit a sponge into the bottle, unlike most bottles which are much too skinny for that. I don't like to use the dishwasher because I don't run it often enough, and would run out of clean bottles.

    Child's Comfort
    All the babies I have fed with these bottles have had no issues with eating from them. They don't seem to cause any issues with gas, or leaking, and there are several nipple flows to choose from as your baby gets older and needs a little more.

    Leak Prevention
    Because of the newer design of these bottles with the little ring that goes inside, sometimes if you don't get the lid screwed on just right it will leak a little bit. However, it doesn't leak much, and as soon as you notice, you just fix it right away, so it's not a huge issues for me.

    Ease of Cleaning
    As I stated before, this is my favorite part about these bottles. I don't run my dishwasher on a daily basis, so rather than keeping 10 bottles on hand (or more), I am able to easily wash these bottles by hand because they are wide enough to fit my sponge and hand into. I don't like cleaning bottles with a bottle brush, as they just don't seem to do a thorough job.

    Keeps Air Out
    The ring at the top helps keep air bubbles to a minimum, so babies are not swallowing a lot of extra air.

    Durability
    We have used the same set of bottles for a couple years now, only replacing the nipples as they get a little worn (faded, cracked or discolored over time).
