Philips Avent – The Most Natural Way to Bottle Feed

When it comes to feeding babies, my family and friends are advocates of breastfeeding. Which is why throughout my pregnancy, I’ve researched the benefits of exclusively breastfeeding compared to mixed or formula feeding. While it is true that FED is best, it is only natural as a mom that I decided to try the best option for my baby boy. As often as I’ve been exposed to nursing mamas and their little ones, I was shocked to find out that breastfeeding wasn’t as easy as it seemed. In fact, for me personally, it was downright hard at first to nurse Josiah King.

Surprisingly enough, difficulty in breastfeeding is a hurdle that many new moms struggle with. Personally, I breastfeed and bottle feed pumped milk. In many cases, the struggle is such a challenge that many end up switching to formula just to ensure their little ones are getting the nutrition they need. In some cases, there are even moms who decide right off to bottle feed and you know what, either decision is OKAY.

I’ve heard many debates on the subject of breastfeeding vs. bottle feeding over the last few months and my stance is pretty much this: no matter what option you go with or for whatever reason that leads you to it, as long as you’re doing what is best for your little one and it’s also a decision you feel like is best for you both, it doesn’t matter which method of feeding you choose. The most important thing to remember about either choice is making sure your infant is getting what he/she needs to thrive!

Philips AventPIN IT!

This is why Philips Avent has been in business for over 30 years. As a company, Philips Avent has been listening to and learning from parents while creating innovative baby products that focus on giving your little one the best start in life. In fact, the company has done so well in developing these products that they’ve been ranked as the #1 selling brand of mom recommended baby products worldwide.

Philips Avent Anti-ColicPIN IT!

Philips Avent Anti-ColicPIN IT!

One example of a fabulous bottle by Philips Avent is their new Natural bottle, our favorite. This particular one appeals most to me because the nipple itself is ultra soft and more closely mimics the feel of your natural breasts. This makes your little one more likely to latch quickly and without hesitation or coaxing from mom. This bottle also utilizes a unique anti-colic Airflex technology which reduces the risk of colic.

For mamas who are hesitant to wean from the breast and exclusively bottle feed but who also don’t want to run across nipple confusion, this product is a lifesaver to give mom a break or to help Dad bond more during feeding times too!

Although my family uses the Philips Avent Natural bottle, another wonderful bottle by the brand is their new Anti-colic bottle with AirFree vent. If you’ve ever had a little one with colic then you know how hard it is, not only for your infant but on you as well. No one sleeps, the baby is in constant distress and you start believing that you’ll never hear the end of that heartbreaking cry. This new bottle is designed specifically to ensure that your little one swallows less air during feeding, resulting in less chance of them developing colic, acid reflux, and other uncomfortable issues early on in life.

By drawing air away from the nipple, the Philips Avent Anti-colic bottle with AirFree vent allows you to feed your little one comfortably and without fear of discomfort. Studies have shown that when using this bottle, babies experienced up to 60% less fussiness during and after feedings. The specially designed nipples even grow with your baby, adapting formula/milk flow naturally so your little one gets just the right amount!

Intrigued by these two innovative bottles and wanting to learn more? I highly suggest checking out Philips Avent online or buy one from your local stores.

    I know this can be a controversial topic so well done for sharing your opinions.

  • Annreeba

    I think this a good product. Thanks for sharing.

  • Alli Smith

    Bottles sure have come a long way since I had babies. My daughter-in-law uses these bottles for her baby and I love how the nipple on the natural bottle mimics the feel of a natural breast. They certainly thought of everything when designing these bottles.

  • Rosemary Palmer

    Bottle have come a long way in 30 years since I used them. Even then I was looked down on for only using a bottle, but hey, he turned out fine, and very healthy.

  • Evelyn, PathofPresence

    Avent is a wonderful option for bottle fed babies! It is the one I chose as an alternative to breastfeeding and when I had to leave my baby with someone. Great film that they are listening to moms and their needs as they tailor products to fit those needs.

  • candy

    I wouldn’t know the first thing about baby bottles since all our children are now grown. My daughter nursed all of her children. Looks like a great bottle for feeding a new baby.

  • Nicolette Lafonseca

    This is interesting to read is feel bad for manufacturers they put so much care I to creating good bottles for babies and then my two came along the most wilful babies ever I spent a small fortune on bottles they wouldn’t take any. So happy for you that you found a balance and a bottle that works for you and your baby x

  • robin rue

    I used their bottles when my boys were little. It is a brand I trusted and I was very happy with the bottles I used.

  • Cristina Leau

    It sounds like a great product. My sister hated breastfeeding. I think this bottle would have helped. I also like the idea of Anti-colic bottle. I have to share this with my friends who are having little kids.

  • Emily Leary

    It’s great to see companies supporting different approaches to nursing be it bottle or breast.

  • Kim

    Such a cute baby. When my son was a baby it took me a while to find the right bottle for him. He was very fussy.

  • Joan Cajic

    I love avent bottles, used them for my son all through and they were really helpful.

  • AJ

    I didn’t bottle feed, but there are definitely so many options out there these days for bottle options, which is great! Breastfeeding definitely isn’t always easy, so it’s great that there are options out there.

  • Jeanette

    When we kiddos were little we used these bottles. They work the best for my kiddo and he had less gas because of these bottles. I highly recommend myself.

  • Joanna @ Everyday Made Fresh

    I know a lot of moms who used the Avent bottles for their babies. They always swore they were the best.

  • GiGi Eats

    My husband is ALL ABOUT me breast feeding when I have a kid – but I am like, why dont you breast feed and I will watch, LOL!!! I have no problem bottle feeding (with formula) as I was when I was a kid, and I turned out …, Fine? lol

  • Ashley

    I’m not a mother but when I become one I will definitely refer back to this post for bottles and other Mom topics! Lol. Thanks for sharing!

  • Sue Tanya Mchorgh

    I am not yet a mother nor do i have any new babies in the family but i do have friends who are new moms and i know they will appreciate this post. I will make sure to share it with them.

  • Amber Myers

    These look like some great bottles! I breastfed and could never get my kids to use a bottle. They were stubborn. They might have used this one!

  • Jessica Taylor

    This is the brand that my best friend used for her first born! We used something similar, but I heard Philips is much better overall! Maybe I will try for baby #2

  • Eva Katona

    My first born was bottle fed and we only used Avent bottles with him (and breast pump too! Nothing can beat Avent’s manual breast pump in my opinion. Did perfect job with both my children and with the first one I exclusively pumped!)

  • Danielle S.

    That bottle is the absolute best! It is my favorite!!!

  • Chi Mpundu

    There are definitely some stigmas about bottle feeding. It’s nice to see a positive way of looking at feeding. Fed definitely is best

  • Stacey

    I remember using this product with my last child and I am glad to see it is still a great option for such an important alternative/continuance to breastfeeding.

  • Candice nikeia

    That bottle seems amazing and so easy to old for mommy and baby. You have such a beautiful baby boy!

  • Amy-Lynn Vautour

    Interesting. I’ll have to let me sister-in-law know about these. She;ll be breast feeding but will certainly have to pump at some point.

  • Crystal Carder

    I remember using some of these bottles with my kids. I used to love how they were rounder and easier to hold then some of the others.

  • Yeah Lifestyle

    I love Avent bottles and used it for both my kids who were both breastfed and bottle fed. I found that they had no colic problems and drank milk easily with the bottle.

  • WhatLauraLoves

    Its great that theres fab bottle feeding options out there. I don’t believe breast over bottle like some people, I think theres great options either way and that the best thing is for the mam to be happy with her choice for her child xxx

  • Lisa

    I love the advances in bottles and any baby care. Things have come a long way in the 13 years since mine were babies.

  • Emily Fata,

    My aunt has a 6 month old and swears by these bottles! Whenever I feed her little guy, I find that it’s a super easy feeding and he seems much more comfortable than with other bottles.

  • Ruthie Ridley

    This is an awesome product!! Precious baby!! Thank you for sharing!!

  • Sarah Bailey

    Avent seem to do some really good products for babies. Although I am not a parent they are definitely a brand I have heard of and one I know a lot of people use.

  • Karen Morse

    I think moms know what’s best for their babies and shouldn’t be affected by what other people would say if they breastfeed or don’t breastfeed. I’m glad there are brands like Avent that help make a mom’s life easier.

  • Sara Welch

    I love the looks of this bottle. I love that it actually imitates a life like breast.

  • Kita Bryant

    I wish I had this some years ago! This bottle really has the best qualities you will need.

  • Cris F

    The natural bottle really looks great for babies and moms who can’t breastfeed. Companies were just starting to design these when my son was born 15 years ago, and we ended up finding the best we could as I couldn’t breastfeed because he would get so jaundiced. It’s great that these bottles are available.

  • Tina Hogan Grant

    I wish this bottle was around when I had my son, He is now 30. I never produced enough milk so had no option but to bottle fed.

  • adriana

    I have heard nothing but great things about these bottles. So many moms rave about them!

  • Kara

    Although I breastfed my kids I always had avent bottles in the cupboard just in case

  • Sondra barker

    There are so many debates out there about how to properly care for your kids. As long as you love them and do your best, you are doing great.

  • Rhian Westbury

    In regards to breast or bottle you have to do whats best for you and your baby and this bottle looks like it helps in the process x

  • Carol Cassara

    I think it’s about time we stopped judging moms for their choices. Especially since not all moms can breastfeed due to their health and I think it’s important that we show them support no matter what. These bottles sound great!

  • AnnMarie John

    Breastfeeding can be a struggle for some mothers and it’s not something that we should judge them for. It’s so much better to show them support than to punish them for something they have no control over. I think these bottles will definitely make any mom’s life easier.

  • Kristi Ann

    These are the same bottles I used. I loved them and so did my daughters!

  • Anosa Malanga

    Definitely the best and trusted baby bottles. All my mommy friends use and trust this brand so much. We also buy this whenever we are conducting baby showers for our friends and colleagues.

  • Alison Rost

    I honestly am not sure why there’s even a debate about breastfeeding and formula fed babies. It’s a matter of what’s best for them and not what society thinks is best. We should stop judging mothers for their choices because they’re already doing the best they can.

  • Elizabeth O

    Avent seems like a really trustworthy brand. I like the idea of the anti colic bottles!

  • Aduke Schulist

    My niece is using these bottles. I think they were still pretty new when mine were little.

  • LaToyia Dennis

    Boy do I remember those days. I had a few avent bottles for Chance. The photos are adorable,

  • Nati

    aww, your little guy is soooo cute! It makes me want to have another baby! I tried to breast feed exclusively my first child, and it was really hard, it didn’t work as expected and I had to combine with the bottle. I also chose Avent bottles!! They are the best imo 😉

  • Danielle

    Awwh, that sleepy little milk face is so cute.
    We didn’t use bottles, but it’s good to see that so much research goes in to them.

  • anosa

    i’ve heard so much about avent. eventually when i have children i feel like this is the brand i’ll be drawn the most to. so many women around me seem to use it, it also seems like the most natural and practical option for me.

  • Saidah

    Awww the baby is so cute! My daughter would never drink out of one when she was little.

  • Preet

    Philips Avent has been my choice for both my kids. They both had it since they were transitioned to the bottle when they were baby until they transitioned to the glass.

  • Aashima

    Totally agree. My kiddo grew with Philips avent and these bottles turned out so simple for him.

  • Dee at My Dee Dees Diary

    This is a very well designed bottle. I really appreciated your perspective

  • Toughcookiemommy

    I used Avent bottles with both of my boys when they were babies. I loved that they decreased their gas because they didn’t hold a lot of bubbles.

  • Ada

    This was such an interesting read. Sounds like a great bottle. I will definitely be keeping this in mind for when I have kids.

  • Tasheena @

    I love Avent bottles! They’re a trusted brand in my home. I was always use them for my son when he was a baby.

  • liza

    Sounds like a really good product! Thanks for sharing it.

  • Alicia

    Your baby is beautiful! And I agree about your breastfeeding stance – people need to find what works best for their family. I do love these new bottles – especially the anit-colic design. Honestly, these are great for breastfeeding moms, too, who want to pump or supplement with formula.

  • Deborah Nicholas

    My youngest is almost 4 but we used Avent all the time- it was the only bottle that worked for us with all 6 kids!

  • Ave

    I breastfed my daughter but she did use a bottle when she had to stay with her grandparents for a couple of hours. We used Philips Avent bottles and really loved them.

  • Waren Jean

    What you mentioned above are the reason why my friends buy Avent for this baby. I trust this brand too.

  • Angela Milnes

    I have been hearing some amazing things about this bottle. I highly recommend it to my friends.

  • Tiffany

    Bottles have come a long way since I was a baby. This looks like a great product that many moms are happy with. Thanks for sharing!

  • TColeman

    I wish we would have had something like the Avent products when my kid were young. This looks like it would be incredible for baby.

  • Nicole Caudle

    We used this brand when my children were babies. I am definitely a huge fan of theirs.

  • Lavandamichelle.

    I breast feed, however my sister couldn’t and she love these bottles and so does her baby.

  • Tereka mccollum

    I personally breastfed all my children for up to 3 months. That’s it. Lol. A good friend of mine went up to 2 years. Do what’s best for you as a mother and woman! I used those bottles as well when my kids were babies.

  • Ruth I.

    I agree that whatever the Mom’s decision is, it is totally fine. My niece used Advent bottles and we believe it is the best.

  • Journa Ramirez

    From my nieces and nephews, to my daughters and my son, avent is a great feeding bottle for us! I love it.

  • Oyinkan Ogunleye

    I’m glad you’re sharing this & its probably easier for many to use the bottle for their kid… or maybe just for some

    God bless

  • Kristina

    Bottle-feeding has come a long way and even though I dont have a baby as i’m too young I do see myself using a bottle no problem in the future 🙂

  • Leslie Hernandez

    I don’t have kids yet but my sisters do and I have always gotten my nephew this brand of bottles I have always heard great things about them!

  • Tiffany Yong

    I thought it’s really scary how so many bloggers are in their motherhood, and sharing their experience. Scary because I’m prolly entering that stage in a few years and I’M SO NOT READY!

  • Kelly Hutchinson

    I wish we had bottles like the Phillips Avent Anti Colic bottle when my kids were babies. This would have made a huge difference with my son.

  • Fatima torres

    This bring me back to when we delivered our firstborn. We weren’t sure whether to use a bottle or continue feeding directly from my breast. It’s nice to know you were introduced to this bottle early on.

  • Gunjan Upadhyay

    This is a great help for new parents looking for a good option.
