Philips AVENT BPA-free Review
Pros: Durable, wide neck, clear markings
Cons: Prone to leakage
Our Analysis and Test Results
Our Avent bottle testing process started off with our bottle brush punching right through the nipple on the first washing! Maybe just a fluke…but still.
With a new nipple in one hand and a fussy baby in the other, trying to get that newly included "adapter ring" inserted properly was no easy task. However, we did like that once it was put together correctly, we had a sturdy bottle that didn't leak.
Correctly assembled, the adapter ring serves it's purpose. The nipple has a fairly broad base that we liked and overall, the bottle felt good in-hand. It's marked clearly on the outside and has a wide mouth, witch made filling and washing simple.
One of the worst scoring bottles in our leakage tests.
We found ourselves frustrated at spending too much time fidgeting with that adapter ring! We imagine this is a learning curve that you would move past fairly quickly. We'd definitely recommend referring to your user's manual.
In our test, the anti-colic claim didn't seem to matter.
Get comfortable with the adapter ring and you should have a decent bottle. However, we just don't see the point and stand by our winner, Tommee Tippee Glass feeding bottle.
