Rated 5 out of 5 by Nelmaxo Easy to clean
I love the natural glass Philips Avent bottles! They are so easy to clean and milk doesnt stick to the sides. I feel much better feeding my baby out of a glass bottle because I know that it is chemical free. I worry about chemicals leaching into my milk with plastic bottles.

Bottle cracked while warming cold milk in the bottle warmer within two months of use. Another bottle broke when dropped a few inches into the sink.

Don't waste you money on these glass bottles, buy the plastic ones instead. There is no way to control the leakage at the caps, and tightening them a bit further to prevent it only results in cross-tread damages or jammed caps. The last thing you want to happen prior to a 3 AM feeding session with twins, is for formula to spill everywhere when mixing it up, or when testing it for temperature. Very frustrating...
I wish I had invested into a plastic set instead of these.

Rated 4 out of 5 by SheenaC Good bottle, cool shape, safe, but causes dribble mouth.
This free sample was one that I was very excited to receive. There`s a sense of nostalgia with a glass bottle but more important there are no BPAs to worry about and glass offers the sanitation that every mom (and dad) is looking for.
When I received the bottle I was intrigued by it`s shape and the shape and size of the nipple. The bottle is tall yet wider than average and the rim of the nipple is wider than the bottle. I like the wide nipple because it`s good for nursing babies who receive the bottle intermittently and/or for babies who are transitioning to being solely bottle fed. The bottle was easy to assemble and clean.
I will say that when my daughter first started using it the flow, even though it`s the first nipple level, was too strong for her. It choked her up a bit and milk would drop everywhere. I went to the store to confirm that there wasn`t another step down. Eventually that became less of a problem but it`s still a bit messy.
After using the bottle for the first time the tight seal that I initially celebrated (for it`s potential of keeping bacteria out) quickly became a big headache because I couldn`t get the bottle open. The next time I used it I didn`t screw it as tight but when I went to shake it milk spilled out all over the place. I`m not sure that I have found a middle ground yet and it`s been four to five weeks.
The bottle isn`t as easy to clean as I anticipated but I think if I get a more bristle like and less sponge like bottle brush then I can fix that issue. I didn`t worry about putting it in the dishwasher or microwave for a steam cleaning since it`s glass and can handle the head. Another critique that I have is that the painted measurements could be a bit more tough, they`re rubbing off a little due to regular use and cleaning.
As far as travel goes, I like that the glass holds heat and transfers heat well. I'm not happy with the lid because it isn't spill proof.
Lastly, how does baby like it? She feeds well from this bottle with the exception of having a milk beard when she`s done and it`s a little to heavy for her to hold right now, but she`s trying and I don`t think it will be too long before she`s able to do so (hopefully!).

Rated 2 out of 5 by Muzit After 4 months of usage the ring for two of the glass bottles wasn't working properly, resulting in leakage.
I've loved using Avent bottles for my 11 year old so when my twins were born, I bought 12 (4 oz) glass bottles which is quite expensive. But after several months, the ring for two of the bottles wasn't latching on properly and the milk would leak. When it happened the first time, I thought it was user error but with the second one, I realized it was product failure.

I received the Philips Avent glass bottle to review and hadn't used a glass bottle before. I like that it can be washed in the dishwasher and feels more clean. It's a bit too heavy for baby to hold alone.

Rated 3 out of 5 by KirstenM Slowed feeding, but leaked
I received this product free to provide a review. As a breastfeeding mother, bottle choice is very important to me. I was excited to use this product hoping it would help my son to eat slower when using a bottle. He did eat slower, not much but anything is an improvement. I experienced leaking from this bottle; I re-read the directions, checked, and re-assembled the collar/nipple portion many times but nothing helped with the leaking. Maybe I just got a defective part, maybe it still wasn't put together correctly, or maybe it is supposed to leak.

Rated 4 out of 5 by KatieS Easy to use and clean
I love the glass bottle versus the plastic bottle. It is so much healthier for baby and is quicker to warm up milk. The Avent glass bottle is wider than most making it easier to pour milk into and clean. I also like that there are not many parts to this bottle which makes cleaning that much easier. However, my daughter just didn't take to this bottle like I hoped she would. I should mention that I received a free sample of this bottle to review, but would still recommend it to other moms to try. Not every child likes every bottle, so although mine didn't care for this one I think many children would like it, as would moms!
