Phillips Avent BPA-Free Classic Polypropylene Baby Bottle Review

Updated on June 25, 2015

The Perfect Bottle Quest

When you buy a baby bottle is like making a commitment. They are all different and their bottle parts are not compatible with other brands; and sometimes parts are not compatible with other bottles of the same brand. Baby bottles are rather expensive because when you have a baby you will need several of them. And what happens when baby decides he does not like the kind of bottle you bought him? That means, switching bottles and try to find one he is comfortable with, and especially if baby has colic.

My son has been using the Avent bottles, the Classic Polypropylene (PP) bottles and the Natural Polypropylene bottles, since he was born. Later, realizing we were going to need more bottles we bought the NUK bottles as well as the Parent’s Choice. However, he disliked his new bottles and won’t feed out of them without some insistent coaxing.

The Phillips Avent BPA-Free Classic Polypropylene Bottles come in five pieces,

  • Bottle
  • Ring
  • Nipple
  • Adapter ring
  • Cap

The skirt on the nipple flexes and works with the adapter ring to allow air into the bottle and prevent colic. The bottles are BPA-free (Bisphenol A) and they are dishwasher and microwave safe. The bottles are milky/cloudy colored, blue, pink, and with prints. Made in England.


  • The cap touches the nipple and acts as a stopper, preventing leaking when the bottle is turned upside-down.
  • They are easy to clean and sterilize.


  • They can leak a little if not sealed correctly.


My son loves the Avent bottles. They are more expensive than other brands but they look as though they are made of better quality than the cheaper bottle brands. The only issue people seem to have with this bottle is leaking due to forgetting to put the adapter ring on, or not sealing the bottle right. To help with forgetting the adapter ring, I assemble my bottles after sterilizing and put them away, so when I grab a bottle to fix my son milk the ring is already attached to the bottle; and keeps me from having to look for all the pieces to assemble when I am in a hurry.
My son has not had issues with colic, so I cannot tell how well the bottle works with that. From my personal experience I do know colic can vary from child to child; while this bottle may do well for one child, it may not help another.
