Philips AVENT Natural baby bottle SCF693/17 1 Natural bottle 9oz/260ml Slow flow nipple Natural nipple shape
As a first time mother I chose this product because it looked easy to assemble and I wanted to provide the most natural experience for my baby. The cover on this bottle is poorly designed and my hands started to hurt from trying to open the cover. The indentation on the bottle cover does not help and the size of the cover makes it hard to grip. I believe whom ever designed this bottle did not have first hand experience in trying to make a bottle in the middle of the night with a crying and hungry baby. I received 6 - 4 oz bottles from my registry and returned the other 6-9oz bottles back to the store.
I have since purchased the classic bottles which have a smaller cover and found it to be somewhat easier to open.
I like avent bottles because it doesn't have all the other gimmicks some brands have to prevent colic with their extra parts, etc. as a busy mom, I don't have time to wash all the extra parts. Just give me a bottle and a cover that I can easily open.

Best bottle for breastfed babies
We tried two other bottles before this one when introducing our daughter to bottles, and she refused to drink from either. She loves the Avent natural bottles. We have been using them for three months and the nipples have not collapsed and the measurement numbers are still printed on the side. I am exclusively breastfeeding so we only use bottles of expressed breastmilk occasionally.

Best Feeding Experience!
I received several types of bottles as gifts at my baby shower. I switched from breast milk to formula after 1.5 weeks. I was not producing enough, and my daughter needed more food! We tried 2 other brands before using the Avent bottles. She was not a fan, and we were left with a gassy, fussy, still-hungry baby. Once we offered her this bottle, it was smooth sailing. She has happy feedings, doesn't gulp or choke, and minimal gas & spit-up.
Mama loves the design of the bottles, the ease in cleaning, and the durability. I would recommend these from birth to 12 months. Great product!

Don't like natural bottles
I bought the natural bottles since my baby was exclusively breastfed initially. I thought they would make a great transition to bottles. I am disappointed with these bottles. My son ends up with more milk on him than he consumes. I have given him time thinking he would just need to adjust to the bottle, but it has not improved. They leak terribly. Now I'm stuck with 2 unopened boxes of the 9 oz bottles that I received as a gift. I wish I would have tried the classic bottles instead.

This product is great BUT....
I just bought a 3 pack of these bottles. Once I got home I used one on my 2 month old. I love the design. it is very pretty. But once my baby started sucking, the nipple collapsed! And that is very annoying once you have a very hungry baby in your hands. It is very, very easy to clean. it has very few parts.

Nipple caves in and numbers have erased
With my first child I used the traditional bottle, every time I would forget to put the valve on I would soak myself and my daughter. With my second I figured I would try the new design that didn't require the valve and my experience has been worse.
The nipple caves in especially when she is really hungry and sucks hard. It becomes very frustrating to hear her cry. The numbers on the pink bottles have also erased making it very difficult to measure accurately. I find myself using the old bottle to measure the amount of liquid I need.
