Rated 4 out of 5 by MeredithM Very happy with these bottles
I received the Avent Purple Fashion Bottle Gift Set in exchange for providing the review. The first thing that I love about this product is that it is BPA free. I am very big on wanting to use all natural and chemical free products for my baby as much as possible. The bottles and nipples are designed to reduce colic and while I`ll admit, I still haven`t done all the research on how it works, but so far seems to be helping. The set has different flow nipples which is great and my baby has no issues feeding from these bottles. I am very satisfied with these bottles and would recommend them to my friends.

Rated 2 out of 5 by StacyC Nice looking but not lacking performance
As part of a focus group, I received the bottle gift set to try out and write a review on. When I first opened the package, I was pleasantly surprised by two large bottles and two pacifiers. I was eager to try the bottles to see how they compared to the ones that I currently use which is the Joovy Boob. I found the Avent bottles easy to hold while feeding my newborn because of the indented/curved middle. I also liked that this was a bottle that could be used throughout different stages of my baby`s life because of the amount of formula/breast milk it could hold. I examined the nipple size and was a little surprised that it said it was for 0-3 month olds because the opening looked rather large. I went ahead and put formula in the bottle and used as I would any other bottle. It was a disaster for my newborn. The flow was way to fast because of the large opening in the nipple which results in major spit up and dripping everywhere. I was disappointed in the performance of the bottle.
There were two cute pacifiers included in the gift set. My newborn currently uses the same Avent pacifiers but for some reason, wouldn`t take these. After examining them side by side, I found that the ones included in the gift set had longer and thicker nipples than the ones I was currently using. Again, I thought that it was too big for a newborn.
Aesthetically, the products are nice but I don`t see any advantage as to using them over any other product, including the ones that I currently use.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Aleinad34 Good quality
I love the fact that I can change the nipple out for other levels of flow. The bottle feels like it is made of high quality and it is a good size for my needs (newborn). While the separate pieces may be a little frustrating at times, it is all a part of the design that allows the bottle to be more versatile. However, because of the interchangeable pieces, I feel like once you take it apart, there`s no going back. The bottle started a very small leak where the nipple and the ring connect. It only leaks sometimes though (not always). Maybe it`s because I put it in the dishwasher, or maybe I didn`t put it back together perfectly. Who knows? If I could figure out what causes it to leak, maybe I could get it to stop leaking.
The bottle is easy to clean and there is no residual smell of milk. The plastic is flexible and sturdy at the same time. I received this product for free in exchange for my review.

This set comes with two 9 ounce Phillips bottles and two pacifiers with covers. The bottle is good quality, and BPA free. It is easy to use, and easy to clean. The design of the bottle also makes it very easy to hold. The nipple has a more natural shape, supposed to be closer to breastfeeding, and my daughter seems to like it. She has taken this bottle with no problems. I also like that it is a slow flow, which my daughter needed.
The pacifier is cute, and I love that it comes with a cover. So many times I have to wash one off, this keeps it clean. My daughter did not seem to like the pacifier, but I think when she gets a little older she will be willing to try it.
I received this product complimentary in return for an honest review.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JenniferD High quality, wonderful gift set
We really loved these products! They seem very natural, and as close to breastfeeding as you can get while using bottles. I like that there are two color choices, but that both green and purple are gender neutral enough to use for boys and girls. If someone wanted to purchase this as a baby shower gift, it would be perfect because either color would work...even if the gender is a surprise! And it's neat that these colors are a limited edition. I primarily breastfeed my babies, so I need a bottle that's natural enough that it doesn't interfere with breastfeeding. This bottle did just that. My babies can have a hard time accepting a bottle, but the nipple was close enough to breastfeeding that my baby took it with no problem. I love that the nipples are slow flow, which are recommended with breastfeeding. A faster flow could have worsened my baby's reflux. The bottle is very easy to put together and to clean. The 9 ounce size of the bottles is the perfect size for my 3 month old. The product packaging claims that there's an "advanced anti-colic valve" which "reduces colic and discomfort," but I didn't personally notice any difference with my baby. That doesn't mean it won't work with other babies; I just didn't notice a difference with mine. This product is very high quality, and because it's made by Philips Avent, I know I can trust the products. The bottles are BPA free, which lets me know they're made of safe materials. The only thing I would change, and this is nitpicking, because I truly love the products, is the polka dot design on the pacifiers. I just wasn't a fan of the look of them, and don't like the little yellow handles on them. They didn't match the purple, in my opinion. I would highly recommend these products, and while I was sent this set as a free sample in return for my honest opinion, I would purchase this gift set in the future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jeanie7229 Love the bottle
I was given a free sample of the purple set avent 9oz bottles. I actually really like the bottles. I love the color. Glad it wasn't the typical pink or clear color bottle. Like the shape of bottle. Gives baby a place for hand hold. Good shape to nipple and cap. The negative is the nipple gets inverted when she sucks on it too hard from feeding.

I love the nipple of the bottle. It seemed more natural for my baby to grip. Also i know there was less gas after feeding. The pacifiers were the perfect size. They were not too big or too small. Inwould recommend this product. I was given this product for free for a review.

I received a free sample of this giftset to review and I found it to be extreme valuable! I did not expect that such a natural method of feeding existed as many products indicate so, but in actuality, make it more discomforting. However, my baby experienced no colic or discomfort whatsoever! I was impressed! The packaging ensured clean and sterilized use. In fact, I was drawn to using it more often than I anticipated.
