When my sweet lil’ bubba was about 6 weeks old we discovered he had reflux and a dairy and soy sensitivity. I was nursing at the time, however, needed him to both nurse and take a bottle to allow for a smoother transition once I returned to work. After bottle feedings, we noticed LOTS of gas coming from our little guy and even more spit up than normal. We tried a variety of bottles as most new parents do, but it wasn’t until we found the perfect bottle, the Philips Avent Anti-Colic Bottle, that we started to notice a change for our lil’ guy after a bottle feed.
Thanks to the Airflex venting system we noticed a significant reduction in gas due to less air ingestion. The built in venting system keeps air away from our angel’s tummy and in the bottle – he seemed much more comfortable and satisfied! Additionally, he took to the flow of the bottle well – and didn’t struggle in bouncing between breast and bottle. This was huge for an exhausted nursing Mama! Daddy could step in for a night feed or two. And boy did those extra zzzz’s help this lady! Now that our lil’ bubba has weaned off of nursing and is solely on a bottle and cup we STILL love the Philips Avent Anti-Colic Bottle!
Another key factor as to why I’m such a fan of these bottles is the ease of setting up, breaking down, and cleaning! With fewer bottle parts it’s faster and easier to use – not to mention much quicker to clean! With just 4 parts (bottle, cap, nipple, and ring) it really is super easy peasy lemon squeezy! Honestly, this reason alone was a game changer for us! Parenting is hard, long, tiring, and oh so fulfilling. Choosing the products we use for our most prized possession – our beautiful babies – is difficult and even somewhat overwhelming! But at the end of the day after a long day of work and parenting, I want clean up to be fast and easy! And thanks to this perfect bottle of choice – it is!
Still curious? Check out actress and new mom, Sarah Chalke’s, full product review.

I know today may have been hard and I know that tomorrow may be harder, but we’re in this together. And from one Mama to another – give Philips Avent a shot. I promise – it won’t disappoint! You got this!
