Philips AVENT VIA Breast Milk Containers SCF612/10 Storage
Useful storage; design needs improvement
This is good for storage of milk that you want to thaw and easily use as a bottle without transfer since it works well with their bottle adapters. However, the lids don't thread easily and you have to really be careful that they are lined up properly. Also, like many other Avent products, the numbers showing the measurements are so hard to read. They are clear so you have to really look at them close to read them. I've had to stop pumping to look at the side of the container to see how much I'd pumped until I finally used a marker to mark them myself. It doesn't stop me from recommending these because they are useful but it just is common sense that if a container has a label on it...make it easy to read.

I bought this product when I was still pregnant cause I want to go avent all the way. The containers are fat and when I froze my milk in the freezer I think it couldn't handle one month of deep freezing. II thawed my milk and noticed there was a crack on the edge. It wasn't reusable at least causei just tossed it out after. Just buy the plastic bags for breastmilk. That's more practical. You can save space in your freezer too.

The biggest drawback is that the screw tops do not always stay in place due to not having enough rivets. This can cause the adaptor to come off during pumping and feeding. The lid also separates when freezing. The container was not comfortable to hold in feeding. I stopped using them after a few months and switched to bags which are cheaper and easier.

Great storage for parents on the go.
The only problem I have with these is very few places carry them anymore. They are water and air tight and made out of thinner plastic so they warm easily also.

WARNING!!!! Do not use this product for freezing milk!!!
The internally tapped threads on the lid make it nearly impossible to open, due to the vacuum created by freezing and thawing. So far 10 out of 10 I have thawed required me to break the lid to get them open.

these are handy
The only complaint I have is that the container does not seal tight therefore milk can leak if container is tipped or is too full. Otherwise these are very handy, easy storage, easy to clean etc.
