    I bought this product, because I really thought it got a great review on how well the product was, and it was easy for all babies with colic or no colic. But this is the worst product that I have ever used. It spilled all over my baby's clothes. He could have gotten an ear infection with the amount that got on him. He has already had enough ear infection, so this just made it worse. I was so angry. Not only did I try it once, but 3 times. Then I just got more angrier. His screamed for it seemed like forever, and I will never buy this product or recommend it to anyone. I spent a lot of money. I have about 6 bottles, and they are not cheap.

    My husband changed my baby’s teats because we got different milk and it’s thicker. So we had 3 months ones so that means it should have 3 holes and have 3 written on teats but when I went to sort a bottle for her, we only had 2 teats that where right out of 3 packets. We’re really not happy as they not cheap and we have to go and buy more now.

    I bought a set of AVENT baby bottles and they leak. I can't exchange them because I have already used them. I tried contacting them, but to no avail. The product they advertise is simply faulty. The leaky bottles pose a danger to the baby. When the bottle leaks, the liquid, which in my case is baby formula, spills on the baby clothes. But more alarming is the fact that if the baby formula gets into the baby's ears, it can cause an ear infection. I believe that the company needs to recall this product.

    I bought baby Avent Bottles for my son which I had June this year (9oz) and when I've put them to sterilize and come to make a bottle. They are leaking! This is a hazard. What would I have done if I was to give the bottle to my little boy without noticing the leak? I am not happy about this at all, I bought 6 and 4 as gone in the bin!

    I've been advised by close family members and friends to complain to the news papers to put across that the bottles leak. I haven't done that yet as I wanted to see what happen and how my complaint is dealt with first. Thanks for your time.

    I am so unhappy with Philips Avent. I had an issue with a cracked and leaky bottle. I contacted their customer service online and after 2 weeks with no answer, I called their information line and the only language available was German (Switzerland has 2 other official languages, French and Italian). I even offered to speak in English and was told to return my bottle where I bought it. I don't have the receipt anymore and it can't be exchanged. I wrote on their Facebook page on Monday requesting help and still no response. So very disappointed in their service.

    I purchased Avent Bottles and it was very expensive. I thought it was such a good product since it is expensive but the baby bottles always leaks all the time and it is frustrating because whenever my baby tries to drink from the bottle it always leaks no matter how I adjusted the ring. Replacing the rings or the nipple doesn't help. I have bought much cheaper baby bottles than this one and it never leaks. I have read a lot of bad comments about this and It was a relief because I thought I did something wrong. I was always making sure I tighten the ring of the bottle but still the same.

    My son always ended up getting his clothes wet because of the milk spilling all over him.. It is very frustrating.. Assembling a baby bottle shouldn't be that hard. For the moms out there who are looking for baby bottles, do not buy Avent. They sell these faulty products and you end up with a messy leaky faulty products. They should be ashamed for charging so much for such a product and it's not even good at all. And to think this money we spent on baby bottles is for our children!

    I purchased the Avent bottle system which included several bottles (4 and 9 oz.), nipples, microwave sanitizer, bottle brush, and bottle warmer. I also purchased extra nipples for different stages and a few more 4 oz. and 9 oz, bottles, breast pump and breast milk storage containers. The 4 oz. bottles started leaking around where the nipple is seated on the bottle, so the milk would pour out from under the ring. This happened with several different nipples. It also have problems with the storage containers; the lids do not seat properly on the container so before warming, we would shake it and milk would go everywhere unless you hold the lid down tight. When we did that, you can see the lid had a spongy-like effect because the threading did not fit together properly.

    I called the Avent Customer Service the first time and this girl talked to me like I'm an idiot. She talked me through assembling a bottle! The end result was that before we fasten the ring with the nipple, we had to make sure that the inside of the nipple and ring were wet to form a better seal. That only worked a few times; we still had leaks.

    I called again, this time asking for at least a partial refund because we had to completely switch to a different brand. She refused and wanted to talk through assembling the bottle again but no thanks, I did that before. She explained that we were not tightening the ring enough but we were, then it was because we were tightening it too tight and then the bottles will leak because of the formula we were using. We used breast milk, powder, and liquid. So nice try but their product sucks. Then, it was due to the fact that we didn't mix the powder in the bottle and then, it was because of the dish soap we used; we used both antibacterial dish soap and a non antibacterial.

    I spoke with her supervisor and the end result was that they could send me storage lids for the bottles to compensate for my troubles. What the hell is that going to do for the leaking bottles and the more than $250 I throw away on their product?

    We use Gerber Nuk and we should have from the beginning. They are very reliable and great for storing and travelling. I spent over $250 on a crap. It was a horrible product and I will tell everyone not to purchase them.

    I purchased 12 Avent bottles. They all leak. I contacted the company to get replacement bottles and I was told by a representative that they have a new bottle out not in stores and they would be shipping them out. I only received 4. I called back to complain that the new bottles still leak and I was told there is no new bottle out. I still have 12 bottles that leak and the company is doing nothing about it. These bottles retail for $10 a bottle.

    AVENT is replacing their baby bottles because they are leaking. I sent them all my bottles including the small 4oz ones. They only replaced the 9oz bottles and told me they were not replacing the little ones because the baby will eventually outgrow the small ones. I bought those and I wanted the same ones replaced. Who are they to tell me what size bottle to feed my baby with if I still was using the small ones. How is it my fault that they produced faulty bottles??? I called Customer Service to explain my concerns and they hung up on me twice while I was still talking and refused to put a Supervisor on the phone for me. They were very rude and disrespectful!!!
