Product Review: AVENT Natural Bottle

Whether you are a breastfeeding mom going back to work or a formula mama right from the start, one thing is certain, finding the "right bottle" isn't as easy as it sounds.
First and formost, it must be BPA free - which is much easier to find now that BPA has been banned in bottles and sippy cups across the US.
Next you are faced with the question of material- plastic, silicone, or glass - then of course drop in bags vs traditional, colic relief or "anti-gas", and if you weren't overwhelmed with choices already... there are different types of nipples.

For the sake of time and sanity, this post will only be reviewing the new AVENT Natural Bottle. The AVENT Natural Bottles follow suit with the newest trend of bottle design, in that the nipples are fashioned after a breast to simulate the natural latch and flow of breastfeeding.

Right off the bat, I like the soft, flexible nipples and the unique design that resembles the milk ducts of a breast:

Our Experience:

Logan has a hard time taking bottles, even after starting life bottles and pacifiers in the NICU. I am fortunate enough to be able to take him with me when I need to travel for work or meet clients, so it hasn't been a critical issue. However, I'd like to be able to have the option, so I jumped at the chance to try this new bottle from Philips AVENT.

The first attempt with this bottle was not successful, which is entirely my fault. I attempted to give it to him while at a baseball game; new environment, lots of noise, and an unfamiliar form of eating did not make for a great situation.

I tried again a few days later, this time in our house, in a quiet room, with freshly pumped milk at the optimum temperature.

This second attempt was a success! He quickly latched on and drank the whole bottle without pulling off or putting up a fight.

He looked a little confused, but happy to be eating.
Of the 4 different brands and styles of bottles we have tried, the Philips AVENT Natural Bottle has proven to be the most successful for Logan. 

I'll be investing in a bottle warmer soon (since breastmilk can not be heated in the microwave and standing over the stove takes more time than I have patience for), and continue to work at making bottles an easier for Dad to use.

Happy Feeding,

I received bottles from the Philips AVENT company for this review. My opinion and experience is my own and was not swayed by the company or their representatives. 


  1. That more comfortable is excellent as it contains no batteries also it may warmth baby bottles routinely! Shara It's non-toxic and has a great efficiency bottle of wine case. That they can double by newborn babies or more.

  2. A lot of mothers prefer to sterilize the baby bottle before leaving it for air-drying. Sterilization is a must in places where the water is not disinfected or if the baby's immune system is deficient.
