Be aware that this bottle has three pieces
The bottles are fine but they have an inner ring which must be inserted. The rim around these nipples are also smaller than the regular Avent bottles so they can't be interchanged. I'm all about simplicity and having a third piece for the bottle seems unnecessary. That being said my baby has never been very fussy, perhaps if she was colicky I would see the benefit to the extra ring.

We found having the anti colic ring a waste of time. The newer version of this bottle is better for only that reason. Both versions leaked milk around the threading.
I hate to spend more money, but I will switch to a different brand for my next child.

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.

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.
