Phillips Avent BPA-Free Natural Polypropylene Baby Bottle Review
Going Au Naturel
The is what the name says, BPA and BPS free! The nipple has petals and is wide for a natural feel, making the transition from breastfeeding to bottle feeding easier. It also has anti-colic valves which release air back into the bottle. The bottle’s ergonomic body makes it easy to hold and clean. The bottle comes with 4 parts: Phillips Avent BPA-Free Natural Polypropylene Bottle
They come in blue and pink tints; and with designs as well. The whole bottle can be sterilized and is dishwasher and microwave safe. Made in United Kingdom.
- It does not leak.
- The cap acts as a stopper and prevents leaks when turned upside down.
- The bottle is easy to hold. The bodies on the 9-ounce and 11-ounce bottles are rather fat but they are not difficult to hold. They are easier than the Avent Classic.
- It’s easy to assemble.
- BPA and BPS free.
- The nipple does collapse due to vacuuming.
- The cap can be rather difficult to take off at first.
- Liquid can sit at the neck while bottle feeding. I have to shake my bottle to try to get all the milk out but most of the time there is some left sitting at the neck.
These and the Avent Classic are the bottles my son started with. He used to like the nipples on these bottles better. It made it easy to go from breastfeeding to bottle feeding, back and forth. On the other hand, it does irritate us both how the nipple collapses while feeding. The cap was annoying trying to take it off in the beginning as well. However, recently we got him another set of these but we didn’t have that issue. As far as colic goes, my son has not had any problems with colic as of yet.
We have had no issues with leaking at all. I like the shape of the bottle. I have small hands and it makes it easy to hold while feeding. They are rather expensive than other bottles and because of that, the nipple collapsing, and cap design; compared to the Classic Avent, I give it a rating of 3.
