Rated 5 out of 5 by NewYorkMama Best bottle by far
I've tried both Breast Flow and Tommy Tippee Closer to nature and let me tell you, none of those bottles both my children liked more than the phillip's advent classic. Bottle is easy to clean, has a wide nipple, replacement parts can be found easily .i.e. replacement nipples. The nipple hole is just right for the child's age and bottle feeding is with ease. I would use this bottle again if I have a third child and suggest it to friends of mine if they have children to be.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kate42852 The only bottle we use!
Our first son was colic. We tried Playtex and Medela and Dr. Browns. We forked out a ton of money for bottles that all failed. A friend of ours gave us an Avent 9oz classic bottle. It was the difference between day and night for our son. Now that we have baby number two on the way, we went out and bought a 5 pack!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Mommyteacher Nipple indents into bottle
I have a few of these bottles and 2 of them have nipples that indent into the bottle after my baby sucks a few times. This is very irritating to me and frustrating to my baby. When the nipple indents it is hard for her to get anything out. I am ready to move to the larger bottles and am not sure if I trust this product enough. The other ones I have work great but I don't want to risk my luck and spend the money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by lala1234 great product
these bottles are easy to use and clean. as long as you use the included adaptor ring there are no issues with leaking. also the fact that all the products are interchangeable is amazing..i would recommend this product to any and every one with a baby. the only thing that was frustrating was when my son started using cereal in his bottles the variable flow nipple that you have to use are not sold in stores in my area but i called customer service and they sent out a pack and referred me to online retailers for the variable flow nipples.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Twingirls Hate the seal that goes under lid
First off, I love this brand of bottles. I have the older bottles that say "made in England" on them. Those are amazing. It's a bottle and a lid. I went online to purchase more since I have twins, I needed a lot more bottles. Then when I received these new bottles that now have a seal ring that you have to put under cover was the biggest turn off. Why add an extra component to a product that was perfectly fine. Now that I have both products, I sometimes forget or don't recognize which ones need the seal and I go to gently shake the milk and it spills everywhere. Which really makes me mad cause I work extremely hard for breastmilk especially when pumping for twins. I love the old bottles. It now I have to find a different brand to use since I need a lot more bottles. I'm sick of accidentally loosing my milk because of this new seal. Any new mom will understand that sometimes you are just that tired that u would forget about a stupid little seal. I wish avent would go back to the old product. Don't fix something thats not broken.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Rachelle Avent does a really great job of letting you customize what works best for your child.
I have only used Avent bottles for my son (he is 5 months old and is our first child). At first I would forget to put the blue and white ring on the bottle and it would leak. However once I remembered to insert it (and make sure the top was twisted on properly, which isn't hard to do), I didn't have any issues with leaks. Any time we go anywhere I will have liquid in the bottles and I don't ever worry if it will leak.
Avent does a really great job of letting you really customize what you want to do as well as what works best for your child. I love the fact that I can interchange with other Avent products, such as the 4+ month sippy cup. The first time we tried the sippy cup it didn't go the greatest but he was undergoing day 1 of the final stages of teething too and I didn't realize that at the time. Then when I gave him his regular bottle, I just added the handles to get him use to the idea. The handles were a nice option but I prefer not to use them (so he's not picky when he switches to a cup). Two days later we tried the sippy cup again (but without the handles) and he took right to it (probably because I gave him medicine for his teething so he wasn't in pain)! However, I had to refill the cup/bottle three times because he drinks 9oz. Ha ha ha but it was his first time and we thought we would try 2oz first incase it didn't work out too well. Which brings me to my point of liking that they interchange, because now I can use a regular 9oz cup/bottle (which I already own) with the sippy top. I don't regret spending the money on the 4+ month sippy cup and only really using the top part because it was a great learning experience and we only bought the one to try it out first. Also if we have another child, then we will have an additional 4oz bottle instead of just one.

I really like Avent bottles. They have all interchangeable parts, from 4oz bottles to 9 oz bottles to the sippy cup. Because of this feature there are less products to buy and it's easy to ween your baby/toddler from the bottle to sippy cup because the sippy cup lid can attach to the bottle, and since your baby is used to the look and feel of the bottle it's an easy transition.
I have read the complaints of other Avent bottle users and I don't understand how the bottles leak on everyone. If you use the provided ring, or tightly screw the lid on there is no leaks. I don't find it hard to use the extra piece/ring either. Other bottles are not as sterdy or well-made as Avent bottles are.
