Philips AVENT, the leading brand recommended by mothers, celebrated the first redesign of its bottles in 29 years with a Baby Shower last week. It was a baby shower with a difference as we got an introduction to their latest range – THE Philips AVENT Natural range of milk bottles. I had been using AVENT bottles with the boys and were interested to learn what new changes they had to their product this year.
Designed to be as close as possible to nature with both BPA-free and premium quality glass bottle option mother’s are spoilt for choice. The new Natural Bottle features a wide, breast-shaped teat that promised high acceptance and an almost instant latch on, as well as prevention of nipple and teat confusion when mothers switch between bottles and breastfeeding. The bottles too are clinically proven to reduce colic in newborns.
The new Comfort Breast Pumps are really very compact and easy to handle. I ‘ve stopped using the breast pump now that Tiger girl is much older but if she was a newborn it would certainly have come in really handy. It was extremely lightweight and easy to manipulate. They have soft silicon petals to gently massage the breast to stimulate the let-down reflex, encouraging milk flow and supply. There is also a bigger suction funnels to accommodate mothers with bigger and fuller breasts. This is certainly a plus point if I am still using breast pumps.
At the shower we were given a short presentation about the history of the milk bottles and there was also a pop quiz about the use of their products. It was interesting to learn how mothers in the ancient times use to feed their babies milk and how the contraption used evolved into the present day milk bottle. Did you know that the as early as 2000 BC there were earthenware cups specially designed and used to feed babies?
Being a family friendly event, Tiger girl was entertained by the two babysitters that the company hired and busied herself colouring and playing with toys while I listed to the presentation. She even took part in the Q & A session and won herself a cute little food warmer back to bring her snacks to school.
There was a neat looking baby changing area where you could try out their products like the sterilizer, food warmers and food processor.
This station really came in handy especially for the mothers who brought along their young babies.
There was a great spread of food served up for the baby shower. The waiters were very hospitable and attentive. Tiger girl was glad that the waiters there were able to understand her and gave her a glass of orange juice when she requested for one. She happily came over and told me ” Mummy I got my drink myself!!” when I told her to get a glass since she was thirsty.
I met up with of the other mummy bloggers from the SMB who were also present at the event. It was great to see them and their kids.
Tiger girl was extremely thrilled when she opened up the take home gift that we had from AVENT. She loves the spunky looking Avery bear and it’s her current favourite stuff bear which occupies the coveted spot next to her on her bed.
