I was kindly sent this *Philips Avent Natural bottle to try out for review a while ago and I’ll be honest, I wasn’t sure whether I was going to let Arlo try it but I’m so glad I did. I’d tried him with bottles before and he just would not take to them and I think it’s down to him being exclusively breastfed, but with me heading back to work I needed to get him used to having a bottle for ease to the OH and of course my mum so he would feed from them while I was away.
I was expecting Arlo to not take to the bottle but I have to say he really took to this straight away, he didn’t fuss which is what I was expecting he literally took to it like he was feeding from me, and this is exactly what this bottle is about. It helps with a wide range of things inscluding; Natural latch due to the wide breast-shaped teat which makes it easier for baby to combine breast and bottle feeding.
It has unique petals inside the teat increase softness and flexibility without teat collapse. Your baby will enjoy a more comfortable and contented feed. It has an innovative twin valve designed to reduce colic and discomfort by venting air into the bottle and not baby’s tummy. Due to the unique shape, the bottle is easy to hold and grip in any direction for maximum comfort, even for baby’s tiny hands. The Philips Avent Natural bottle is made of BPA-free* material (polypropylene). And the wide bottle neck makes filling and cleaning easy. Only a few parts for quick and simple assembly.
I’m all for a simple package design and of course can we not forget about that cute little unicorn design on the bottle. It was really easy to use and I was so surprised at how easily Arlo latched onto it to have a feed. The only downside for me is that it’s all made from plastic and I think it would have been better if the bottle was glass for mama’s precious milk and the teat was silicone. It would be much more eco friendly and tick a lot more boxes.
Overall I’m really happy with this and really glad that Arlo can feed from it comfortably and happily. It’s the only bottle that he uses to feed from. The Philips Avent Natural bottle is available in 4 sizes: 2 oz/60 ml, 4 oz/125 ml, 9 oz/260 ml and 11 oz/330 ml. Bottles are available in single and multi packs. The one I’ve been using is the 9oz bottle which is big enough for us as he’s mainly breastfed. They also retail for a 2 pack for around £14.50 but you can get them seperatly and of course in bundle sets so it’s worth shopping around.
Do you use a bottle to feed your baby?? Which brand is your favourite??
