A few weeks before the Philips AVENT launch we received this package from the organizers with the baby shower invitation. Upon unraveling the package I was thrilled to see a selection of bottles which I could test out with Tiger girl.
There has been changes in the design of the bottle since the last time I used it with the boys. The bottle is lighter and more ergonomically friendly for the little hands. It is also BPA free.The new designed teat Photo by Philip AVENT
The new Natural range features a wide, breast-shaped teat promises high acceptance and an almost instant latch on, as well as preventing nipple and teat confusion when mothers switch between bottles and breastfeeding.
The new unique comfort petals and silicone teat with high flexibility and stretch, preventing teat collapse and a more natural and uninterrupted feed.
The new, advanced anti-colic Natural bottle not only prevents, leaks but also reduces colic. This makes the bottle extremely useful for younger babies who may suffer from the discomforts related to colic.
My eldest, Monkey boy suffered from colic when he was a baby. It was one of the reasons why we chose to use AVENT bottles back then. It was a decision which I never regretted.
Having a colicky baby is something which added on the stress of being a new mother back then and luckily the discomforts he suffered were minimized through the use of AVENT bottles.
I love how the teats in this new design are much softer and comfortable to suck on as compared to the old design. The parts of the bottle dismantle easily making cleaning it a breeze.
It would be good if they had even bigger sizes available for older kids like Tiger girl as I had to refill her milk bottle twice each time she uses it as the max capacity is only 260ml.
Tiger girl took to the new bottle instantly and has been asking to have her milk in it nightly. She is able to hold the bottle easily with her hands and the bottle doesn’t leak even though she tilts it while drinking. It is light enough for her to hold and finish up the milk. However she had some trouble removing the cap of the bottle by herself and needs assistance to get it off.
Tiger girl is certainly one happy girl as she loves her new milk bottle.
Philips AVENT Natural bottles can be purchased from all major department stores.
However it can be quite costly as the prices are as follows:
125ml/4 oz retails at $17.90 (Single pack) or $30.90 (Twin pack)
260ml/ 9 oz retails at $20.90 (Single pack) or $36.90 (Twin Pack)
