Wish i had tried these sooner
Thanks to the weeSpring Parent Panel I got to try this product, and I wish I had done it a long time ago. As a mom of two, I was really hoping to use the same bottles—the ones that came with my breast pump--for my second. My first (now 3) didn’t have reflux or spit-up issues like my second, and I was reluctant to try other bottles due to horror stories about all the pieces to clean, keep track of and assemble. But for the weeSpring Parent Panel I gave these bottles a try. WAY easier to clean than I imagined. Assembling was a breeze, too; and thanks to the included bottle washing wand, clean-up was also a snap. Another perk: my toddler loved the Avent sippy cups when transitioning from bottles, and these came with a handle and nipple so the bottles can easily make that transition!
I don’t use formula and was a little disappointed that the set came with a dispenser, but it’s come in handy for holding snacks for my big kid.
This is a great product, and it would be a great gift for little ones---or yourself. ;) I loved them; my little one loved them; my husband doesn't mind cleaning them. I really wish I had gotten these sooner!

The only baby bottle for us!
When we first brought our daughter home from the hospital, I had every intention of exclusively breastfeeding. However, after several sleepless nights attempting to nurse a baby who would not latch, my husband and I were desperately reaching for a bottle to feed her. We grabbed and sterilized the Avent bottles and gave them a try. Our baby easily latched onto the bottle and happily slurped up her milk away, which was a beautiful sight for this very tired mama.
While my baby was happy to be getting her belly filled, these tired parents appreciated the limited amount of pieces necessary to put together the bottles - no straws or complicated vent systems like some other bottles we have seen.
We were initially concerned over the potential for increased gas due to bottle feeding. These bottles claim to reduce gas and discomfort in young babies - and let me tell you, these claims could not have been more true for us! Thanks to the vent system of these bottles, our baby has had limited gas or discomfort.
As a first time mama who knew nothing about bottles, I just "guessed" when adding the Avent Gift Set to my registry. But I seemed to have made a lucky guess, because these bottles have worked perfectly for us and I can wholeheartedly recommended them to new parents. The bottle brush and powder formula dispenser included in the Gift Set round out an already great product - the brush helps keep the bottles squeaky clean and the powder holder is perfect for throwing in a diaper bag.
Thank you Avent for saving the day for these tired parents and hangry baby! And thank you to weeSpring Parent Panel for sending me these bottles to try and review.

Great bottle to utilize thru toddlerhood
I received the bottle and pacifier set as a part of the weeSpring Parent Panel. The bottle included both an interchangeable nipple and a sippy cup piece. My little is only 6 mos old so we have tested out the nipple so far. We have used Phillips Avent bottle before and she seems to do well with them. She did really enjoy holding on the handles of this bottle. Very easy to clean, and I do like the idea of the sippy cup mouthpiece being similar to a nipple- because it will be easier to clean in the future. The pacifier came with two day time and one glow in the dark one. They have cute Valentine themes. Unfortunately we have not found a pacifier that my little takes consistently (she’s EBF). She does like to suck on it, but usually spits them out quickly to chew on instead as she’s teething now. Overall I do think the shape of the pacifier and nipple are well constructed. And I do really like having a cap for each one to help keep clean.

This is an amazing gift set! It comes with 5 bottles (3 small ones and 2 bigger) so this set can be used for a long time for your little one. Also has a formula dispenser cup for when you are on the go. A bottle brush and 2 pacifiers. Love the pacifiers my son seems to like them very well. My son is very gassy, these bottles with their airflex vent have helped with this issue tremendously! Thanks to the weeSpring Parent Panel for sending me this set to try, we have found our new go to bottles.

Great Starter Set
I received the Philips Avent Anti-Colic gift set as a gift from the WeeSpring Parent Panel. The set comes with 5 bottles in two different sizes. It also has nipples with different flows. In addition, a sippy trainer nipple and handles are included. There is also a pacifier, a bottle brush, and a formula dispenser in the set. My baby has transitioned to these bottles flawlessly. We use the handles with his slow flow nipple bottle and he is able to hold his own bottle. I love the different options for him as these bottles will grow with him! I think that the sippy option is great to help a little one move up to a cup when it is time to do so. I work full time, so I pump several times a day. The bottles with the lids are perfect for breast milk storage and cut out the need for exclusively storing in bags. My baby has not had any issues with gas while using these bottles which is a huge plus! The design of the bottles is amazing. The formula storage container doubles as a great cereal storage for on the go! It comes apart easily and snaps back together snugly. We have only been using these bottles for a little over a week and think that this set is a perfect gift for someone with a new baby. Or even for a parent returning to work. No need to stand in the aisle looking at multiple types of bottles and accessories. Everything you need is all in the set! I highly recommend the Avent gift set and will be adding it to my list of items to give at a baby shower!

Great Bottle set
I received this gift set as a gift from the weeSpring Parent Panel.
There are two different sized bottles: 9oz and 4oz, and 2 different flow anti colic nipples. The 2 (medium) flow seem to work great for my daughter. Was able to a nice with a nice flow without too much air.
There is also a 4oz transition cup with a soft spout. I tried this, but I do not think my 6 month old was ready for it. But I look forward to trying and using it again as she gets older.
The bottles do not have any excessive number of parts. I've had anti colic bottles in the past that come with so many pieces and it makes it really difficult to clean. That is not the case with these!
I really love the little extras this kit contains. The formula dispenser is a great feature for moms on the go. We use formula and are also out and about. It easy to measure out the formula, and dispense into bottles.
The bottle brush, a nice little bonus for easy cleaning. We already had a brush for our kitchen, so this was nice to use when we go visit friends and family.
And last but not least the pacifier. We have and exclusive pacifier we use. But this one was great to toss in the diaper bag as an extra. Just incase you forget to grab one while heading out.
I would definitely recommend this kit to any new/expectant mom.

I was so excited when I got this set through the WeeSpring Parent Panel. Although, it was gifted to me my review is of my own opinion based on my actual use.
I really liked this set. It came with a lot of extras. The only one that I haven't used is the formula Tupperware container, as we are breastfeeding. However, I think it could be used as more than just formula. I plan on using it for snacks when my baby is older, or for my older kids.
I also really like the smaller 4oz bottles. They seem to be the perfect amount for my son. Perhaps, the 8oz bottles will be a good fit for him when he's a little bit older. I'm also happy to say that I didn't have problems with milk leaking from the bottle with the cap on, or problems with the screw-top collar leaking milk. And because there are only a few parts, the bottle is super easy to clean. I'm also thrilled that the bottle fits my pump, which I've had a hard time finding bottles for.
Now, the bottle claims to help reduce air taken in by the baby, and it's kind of cool that you can sort of hear the air leaving the bottle and not getting swallowed by baby.
Also, all of my children refused bottles and it was a struggle to try and get them to take a bottle. I'm happy to say that my babe took to this bottle without any problems.

A Good Choice!!
I got a chance to try this gift set as part of the weeSpring Parent Panel. All in all I am a fan of the Avent Bottle Gift Set. From our experience, I found the PROs to outweigh the CONs:
- Practical ... the bundle comes with everything you need!! Love the variety. The Sippy Cup trainer/attachment is a nice bonus as is having a bottle brush and travel container for formula
- Size ... LOVE the shape/stature of the bottles. And with a newborn, I especially love the 4oz size
- Easy to Read ... the numerical print on the sides of the bottles is extremely easy to read (especially compared to other brands)
- No Nipple Confusion ... my newborn switched over to these bottles with no problems (he only spit up once); he cooed and enjoyed his milks!
- Dishwasher Safe ... for me, this is a NECESSITY!!
- Fewer Parts ... self explanatory :)
- Assembly ... while these bottles DO have fewer parts than other brands, I personally don't find getting the nipple into the ring to be an easy task; it actually takes me LONGER to assemble these bottles than to assemble the ones with several components
- Not Diaper Bag Friendly ... as noted, while I personally LOVE the size, the bottles are too short/wide to fit into any of the pockets of my diaper bag; hence they'd have to go in the center of the bag and would be at risk for leaking
- Nipple Flow ... my (to term; 8lb) 4 week old excels on the 0+ size nipple. It's great for him. BUT, if he were only a few days old, this flow would likely be too intense for him (even though this is the smallest 'size' nipple in the bundle)
- Pacifier ... my newborn is not a fan of this particular pacifier; HOWEVER, we started him off on the Philips Avent Soothie Paci and he LOVES it; he refuses any other Paci EXCEPT that one!
So, yes, all in all I am a fan of the bundle. It would make for a great shower gift and is perfect for trying out the Avent line. Would definitely recommend this product.
