We were looking for glass bottles for our LO because they are more sanitary and we ran across Philips Avent (3 bottles for $29.99). Waste of money. This is a poor design product and needs to be recalled and redesigned. We wasted our money on two packs of threes. The bottles leak no matter what the size of the nipple is and the leak is from the base of the nipple as opposed to the actual hole in the nipple. We didn't discover this until we returned one pack to purchase a pack with a nipple size 1. The 1 flow was faster than we expected and was dangerous feeding our LO. She constantly struggled and coughed while trying to eat plus the milk continued to leak out of the base of the nipple between the ring and silicone. We were just so fed up and ended up buying a cheaper bottle $6 and it worked like a charm. We would love a refund but the bottle we used could not be returned. Philips Avent please recall these bottles and redesign.

Very upset. My granddaughter had her first baby. I purchased these Avent 4oz bottles and my poor great-granddaughter kept choking and hiccups a lot. So lucky she did not aspirate drinking from these bottles so I examined the nipple and the flow and could not believe they are allowed to keep selling these bottles. They need to be pulled from all stores before a baby does aspirate.

It was easy to use and install. I bought it at Target years ago and remember the price was affordable. Less than 40 dollars is what I paid. Instructions for set up were easy. However, it only came in one color. White or Ivory. Moreover, the package was very hard to open. An older person would have a hard time.

Wide range of feet and it’s easy to set up. This monitor can pick up signal really far so if your room is not really close to your baby, this monitor will most likely reach with the wide range it has. It has a small light like a nightlight on it which is soothing. However, it did not have a video monitor on it. Also, static noise sometimes and it was loud at night in my room, made a buzzing sound if I turned it up too loud. It seemed to come and go the buzzing noise. They could make the static noise decrease and make it sound better when you turn it up loud. But love the brand. I would also recommend this brand to other moms. If they are looking for a cheap but good monitor it’s worth the money.

I liked the high frequency and how long of the range was for the monitor to be able to hear my son when he was a baby. I was able to go outside while he was napping. I also liked how clear it was to be able to hear my child when he woke up from napping. The volume control on it was nice so we didn't have to have it turned way up just to be able to hear my son when he woke up. I also like that it could be used with an outlet plug or batteries. It also didn't kill the batteries very quickly so we weren't going through batteries like crazy.

Also liked that it hand a belt clip on it so when I had my hands full I could just clip it onto my clothing that I was wearing if we had batteries in it. Also, I didn't have to worry about leaving it or making extra trips just to grab it. Another thing was that it didn't have a very big antenna on it to make it awkward when having it clipped to me. We loved everything about it. Only thing that was weird about it is we could pick up other our neighbors when they were talking on the phone or cell phone.

I bought several Philips Avent baby monitors for family members for their baby shower. The sound is very clear with no interference and the range is good. It has a temperature monitor and also has a nightlight mode. You can talk back to your baby and it also plays lullabies. It also has lighted alerts if you have the parent unit on mute so that you can just glance over and see what is going on. However, my first battery was defective and wouldn't hold a charge so I contacted Amazon and they sent me a new unit. I would have the rechargeable parent unit have a longer life without having to recharge it so often. But it's a great product! Highly recommend!

I like this brand more. It's more clearer and someone recommend it to me. It's nice, innovative and excellent. I like the audio quality and its monitor. You can bring the monitor with you wherever you are inside the house and the screen size is just about right for me. Isn't it amazing. Everything is perfect. This is all I want and need for my baby. Makes my money worth it paying this kind of baby monitor.

They are great and don't break down as easy. The signal boost made it easy to tell when there was noise in the room and made me sure my child was awake. Hard of hearing people, never can tell and being hard of hearing, this was a must for me. The camera ones were good but it was still hard to tell. Make it with the camera and the signal boost so we can also see if the baby is in need of us now or can wait a few minutes while I finish something.

The Philips Avent is an all in one product. It has wifi capabilities, extra monitoring ranges and options. It hooks up to just about anything including a smart television. It also provides lullabies, sleep sounds and stories. It has a multi-color and nightlight so you can choose the lighting for the baby. It is a bit expensive but worth its weight in gold. I love it.

When my daughter in law got the Avent bottles for a gift she used them. They leak and the formula comes out too fast. Her baby almost choked on his formula. I dont recommend these bottles to anyone. My daughter switched to Dr. Browns bottles. Love those bottles.

I see that everybody is having the same issues with these high bottles (glass) that I am having. I live and die by glass bottles and was excited when I received as a gift, well I went and bought another pack thinking it was just the one I got as a gift. No indeed it's all their bottles. I am beyond pissed. Now they want me to tell them how I am placing the bottles on.

I ordered a breast pump from Best Buy on black Friday however did not open until January when my doctor advised me to start using it. Unfortuantely, it was missing the adapter. :( I called Best Buy which was to no avail. Called Philips Avent and they were to ship the part the next day and I would have it the day after. A week later and I still don't have the adapter. On the phone with them again and it appears that the first person who took my call wrote my postal code wrong. Luckily, they are tracking the order and will be sure that I get the adapter. I'm upset that the adapter was missing however extremely grateful that they are standing behind their product and sending the adapter with no additional charges to me. Thank you Philips Avent!!

My grandson is only a month and we change from dr. brown bottles because he was first being breastfed, so we choose Avent natural and I bought two boxes of 9oz ones and one box of 4 0z and they all leaks. I try changing the cap and nipples around, nothing helped. I google how to make them Stop leaking. That didn't helped. I YouTube it and that didn't help but I did notice that they had a ring to go on the bottle and was told that helped them with the leak. My bottles didn't come with a ring and these bottle cost too much to have to try to figure out yourself how to STOP the leaks.

I am very disappointed and so is my crying grandson when he's ready to eat and can't because he's getting wet and I have to constantly stop to try to figure out how to stop the leak! Even when I called the Philips company to get help the person who answer the phone couldn't help me, told me to put water in the bottle and see where the leak is coming from and try move it around. Did that that didn't worked and I told her I am thinking about going back to using Dr. Brown and she said told are some good bottles I love Dr. Brown bottles... Smh but you work for Philips and don't have a solution for my problem... These Are The Worst Bottles Ever But Very Costly. One unhappy Nana...

If I could give a rating of zero stars I would. The baby bottles do not close properly and leaks everywhere. I bought another set thinking that it was me or just that set of bottles but the new set did not close properly either. I bought a totally of 8 bottles and only 1 of them is working. We are not able to use the others due to them not closing properly.

I am a mother to a 12-year-old and a 9-week-old and with both my children I only used glass bottles. With my oldest I used Gerber's glass bottles and with my new little one I am using Avent. Yesterday however the glass completely separated itself from the rest of the bottle. I warmed a bowl with water in the microwave for 1 minute, I took the bowl out sat it on the counter and placed a room temperature bottle in the bowl. Seconds later the bottom of the bottle completely broke off which I realized as soon as I lifted the bottle out the bowl. I called Philips Avent to explain what happened and that I owned 12 glass bottles and wanted to replace them all with plastic as I feel that their glass products are not safe. I was offered a 15% off coupon to use on their site and 2 free plastic replacements.

Personally I am disappointed as I have proof of purchase of 12 bottles that I'd gladly return for a product I feel safer with. Instead I was offered to become a reward member so I can receive emails and coupons and told I could purchase more products however they won't replace what I already own. This is clearly a manufacturer defect and I should not have to suffer the financial cost of replacing bottles that I don't trust due to the manufacturing of the bottle. The glass breaking is the final straw for me using this product, since we've started using the bottles we have had issues with the lid leaking. I mentioned this and was told we are overtightening the bottle. However I ensure that the bottles are not overtightened. I would never recommend this brand to anyone.

Baby bottles have become a necessity since I became a mom. I've been using AVENT baby bottles since 2013, and so far, I'm a happy camper, and I'll continue to use this brand if need be. One of the reasons I considered AVENT is it being BPA-free. I want to give the best to my children, and I'm afraid to expose them to any hazardous elements, so even though AVENT is an expensive brand, I went with it. An AVENT bottle lasts long, and it just takes proper care and handling for them to last even longer. For sterilization, we can use an AVENT sterilizer or any other cheaper brands, so the bottles and parts will not be damaged. Sometimes, mothers use pot sterilization that somehow destroys the bottles (based on my and some of my mom-friends' previous experiences). The bottles I sterilized in pots have worn out labels after a few cleaning, but perhaps, that is because I have forgotten to set a proper timer for it.

The ones I have after are already properly managed, at least in my book. I still have some of the old ones (I just don't know where to put them so I kept them or maybe I'm just clingy to my baby things...haha...) as shown in the pictures, though I don't use them anymore since it is highly recommended for parents to change bottles every now and then. After all, they're still plastic...and plastic is plastic.

AVENT bottles are wide enough that they're easy to clean and fill. It doesn't give me a hard time. I don't know why, but they're also easy to hold (at least for my babies). The naturally shaped nipples are also wide so it ensures easy latch on. There are also different flow rates for moms to choose from. I have used different AVENT nipples depending on the need of my babies. I like that they have different styles and colors to choose from. It is somehow catchy for babies (as shown in the pictures again). Lastly, I like how they come in gift sets or packages - it is a good additional stuff to give to friends or family who are moms-to-be.

My baby has been using Avent feeding bottles (classic for first 3 months then natural since then). The markers/labels printed on the natural bottles are starting to be removed when in fact, the bottles have no 1 year yet. And the nipples cracked easily so I had to change nipples every two months. Also, the colors of the bottles are no longer clear.

I used Avent bottles on both my kids that are now 13 and 10 and loved them. I now have a newborn and trusted Avent once again. Only this time I was extremely disappointed. I have probably close to $1000 invested in Avent from bottles, nipples, bottle warmer, sterilizer, pacifiers, and more. I have had nothing but problems with the bottle leaking all over my baby. She also seems to get air bubbles which Avent claims won't happen. Not sure what happened over the years but I'm out lots of money and totally disappointed. I will no longer recommend Avent as I have been for over 13 years.

I am so disappointed with Avent's Natural Baby bottle. I am from the Philippines and I have a 1 year and 10 months old baby. Ever since he was born we are using the Avent classic baby bottles. And when the Natural baby bottles came out we were excited to try them with our baby. My husband (who is working in Saudi Arabia) bought 9 bottles of Avent Natural baby bottles. But to our dismay, every time my baby is drinking his milk thru it, there is a lot if milk leaking. Tried changing the nipples to new ones but still there's leakage.. We are requesting for a recall of this product. Such a waste of money. The price is not worth the product.

Avent natural 4 oz bottles are expensive but useless bottles that leak. I am so frustrated trying to feed newborn twins with bottles that leak. It gets all over my babies, their clothes, my hands and my clothes, my furniture and carpet. I don't know how much wasted precious breast milk has been lost because of these poorly made bottles. How hard is it to make a milk bottle that doesn't leak and to charge so much for this terrible product! It's already hard enough to constantly feed your babies without the leaking. By the time l clean up the mess, top up the milk that's been leaked out, my babies are upset, screaming and unwilling to feed. My husband and I are so frustrated and hate these bottles so much!

I will never buy another Philips Baby product. They are poorly designed junk that are uncomfortable for parents and infants alike. We purchase ten 9-ounce bottles for our 8-week old son. After a month, I'm putting them all in the garbage. They leak during every feeding no matter how carefully you follow the instructions and care for them. There are too many parts and too many failure points. The result is that the bottle leaks with about 30% of the movements. That means every single feeding has resulted in formula on my son, formula on me, formula on my furniture, and/or formula on the carpet. The investment clearly went into the look and marketing without asking some basic questions like: will it leak, and is an adapter ring suited to an infant's dynamic feeding. Don't waste your money - buy something with fewer moving parts.
