Nice pack in a cute colorWe were unable to breastfeed so we have tried numerous bottles to find the best fit for her. We settled on the Avent Natural Bottles until this pretty pack came along. I was at first a little skeptical because the nipple was quite a bit different than the natural version she was accustomed to. She didn’t seem to care one bit and took to it right away. I noticed that she actually makes less of a mess with this nipple type than the natural. It seems that it doesn’t stretch the sides of her mouth quite as much so in terms of mess it improves the feeding experience for us. She also is not one to spit up and this nipple type seemed to continue this trend as she had no issues with gas or puking. No issues with leaking. I’m not sure if this was intentional or not but the ring and nipple (together, the nipples cannot be interchanged with the rings) is interchangeable with the base of the natural bottles and vice versa so we actually are able to swap between what we were already using and these which is a nice added perk. They clean very easily and do not have a lot of extra pieces.
Only con, this bottle is not easy for our girl to hold. It would be better with texture or something to help grip. The color makes it easy to find no matter where you sit it.
Thanks to the weeSpring Parent Panel for sending me these bottles!

Easy to clean, parent-friendly bottle.I am a mom of 4, past user of Dr. Brown's and Playtex bottles, grateful to have received these from the Weespring Parent Panel. I'll go through pros and cons as I see them:
Size - nice 9oz capacity and yet shorter than even the wide neck Dr. Brown's bottles, so easier to fit in diaper bag. I would say a little more annoying to hold because there's no tapered middle section, but worth it for compact height.
Color - for some reason I haven't seen many of these, so makes it easier to find her bottle among all the others at daycare
Easy to put together - don't have to explain to grandparents or babysitters.
Easy to clean - soooo much nicer than the Dr. Brown's multi-part system. Almost couldn't be easier - except the Playtex drop-ins are actually even easier and are awesome for that reason. The downside to the Playtex is having to repeatedly buy the inserts.
Cons - baby seems to like these less. The nipple seems stiffer than other bottles. Maybe that's why, but I can't really read her mind. I do think the Dr. Brown's and Playtex bottles do a better job of reducing gas, but if your baby is not extremely sensitive, this is a really great parent friendly option that doesn't require constantly buying inserts....

Love the simplicity of the design!I got a chance to try these bottles as part of the weeSpring Parent Panel, and I am impressed with their simplicity. Full disclosure, my second child has yet to make an appearance, so I am reviewing these bottles without using them with a baby. I will update the review when she finally shows up!
First of all, I love the simplicity of these bottles. Unlike the majority of anti-colic bottles, there are no small vents or extra pieces to clean. Having used two competitors anti-colic bottles in the past, I know how difficult it can be to a) keep all the pieces together and b) to really feel like you got all the little holes and vents cleans. The nipples are clearly and visibly marked with the size, which I also think is great. No more holding the nipple to the light to try to determine if it is a size one or size two hole. Also, the fluid levels are clearly marked in contrasting colors to the bottle. I will have to see how much those fade on repeated washing.
The nipples have a ribbed texture to prevent nipple collapse, but I will have to try that when the baby finally gets here! I also cannot determine how well they work to prevent colic and gassiness, but as I said above I will update the review when I know more.

Fewer parts and easy useI had the opportunity to try these bottles as part of the weeSpring Parent Panel. My baby is currently 6 months old and EBF, getting a bottle only 2-3 times a week right now.
Because there are minimal parts and the bottle is a wide-mouth bottle, these were very easy to assemble/disassemble and clean. The shape makes them comfortable to hold, and easy for baby to hold on to as well. I also appreciated the 9 oz. capacity, which can make it easier to transport milk. The bottle also features an anti-colic vent system, which is a nice addition. We did not have any gas issues after use.
Due to the nipple flow speed (these come with a size 2 nipple), my baby had some issues with choking and coughing, so I really had to watch the pace and hold the bottle more level to prevent the milk from pouring into baby's mouth. The nipple also seemed a little long and harder than what baby is used to, for my baby's comfort, but would probably be something we could get used to with more practice.
Overall, if you are looking for a larger capacity bottle with a faster flow for an older infant, this would work great and make life with a gassy/colicky baby easier with fewer parts to clean.

Love these bottles!I received the Avent Anti-colic baby bottle from the weeSpring Parent Panel. I really like Avent products so I was excited to use these. I primarily breastfeed my daughter but we have introduced a bottle so I can start leaving her a little at a time before I go back to work. First off, I really like the design of these bottles especially the color. They are easy to use and super easy to clean. Even though they are 9oz bottles they aren't as tall as other bottles which makes traveling with them much easier. The only thing I wasn't crazy about was the size 2 nipples that were included with the bottles. They were a little too fast for my 2 month old so I used size 1 nipples that I already had. My baby doesn't have colic per se, but she does get very fussy in the evenings during her witching hour. I found that these bottles definitely help ease her fussiness and she doesn’t seem gassy afterwards so that is a plus as well. I would absolutely recommend these bottles to any parent whether or not their child had colic.

Excellent value and designMy baby eats pretty fast for a little guy and tends to get a little gassy after a feeding, especially with bottles. These were fantastic and I noticed a significant decline in fussiness after feeding with them. The bottle itself is super simple to clean (only 3 parts) and the brush that comes with the set works well to get to the bottom and around. The parts do not leak, as of yet, either though I've had bottles that are great for awhile and then start leaking with time.
The best part about this set is it comes with different sizes of bottles with nipples of different flow rates AND a sippy transitional cup for when you want to teach them to hold their bottle more. Love the fact that this also comes with a formula dispenser and pacifiers, though my son did prefer the MAM ones he's used since birth.
Overall this was a great value for all that you get and would be a perfect baby shower gift! Thanks to the weeSpring Parent Panel for sending me this set!

Fine bottlesI got a chance to try these bottles as part of the weeSpring Parent Panel. I liked that the bottles were easy to put together, and easy to clean, and the pink is a nice touch for aesthetics.
My 5 month old seemed to like these bottles. However, I don't think I would use this size nipple for a 1 month old. In fact, with my first I used the slowest flow (size 1) nipple until he stopped taking bottles at 16 months. Not sure there is any benefit to using faster flows.
I didnt love the width of these bottles. Most other bottles I've used are thinner, thereby allowing babies to hold them easier. Also, other bottles i've used that are thinner were compatible with my pump parts (so i could pump directly into the bottle), these would not work for that purpose.
I can't speak to the anti-colic claim, as my daughter hasn't had that problem.
All in all, my daughter likes these bottles and so I'll use them, but not sure I'd buy another set.

Great bottle for reducing gassOverall this is a great bottle. The shape of the bottle is nice and compact. It is easy to clean with a wide neck and streamline nipple. The nipple is a good shape that my son had no problem latching on to it. My son has been a super gassy baby since day one and these seem to help reduce gas when he drinks my breast milk from them. The size 2 nipples included allowed a good flow for him to drink without any over spill from the corners of his mouth. It would be nice if it had included multiple nipple sizes for growth and flexitibility. However, the fluid labeling is nice and clear so it's easy to track how much my son is eating at each meal. It's great having a bottle that works well for baby and gives mommy a break from feeding without having to worry about too many gas bubbles ending up in his tummy. I got a chance to try these bottles as part of the weeSpring Parent Panel and I am lucky to have gotten the opportunity!
