Hate the seal that goes under lidFirst 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.

Leaky seal ruins the bottleMy biggest and only issue with this product was that sometimes they bottles leaked. We tried all the "suggestions" and nothing worked. Avent went as far as replacing the bottles we had, which was nice...except the new bottles leaked as well. Too much money wasted on something that was a pain to use.

I insist only Avent for my children.I am a breastfeeding mother and will use only Avent for the bottles (I pump breastmilk) and for the pacifiers. There has been NO nipple confusion for either child and they have no problem going from breast to bottle or pacifier then back. Thank You Phillips Avent!!

Good productI like the bottles.. they are great and it also prevented colic. Only problem was that the bottle changed color after a few uses. And I would like if the bottles were in different designs and colors.

Every bottle leaksI have twins and the only bottle they would take to was the Avent so we purchased around 10 of them. Every single one leaks. It is so frustrating to wake up in the middle of the night to feed a crying baby and instead of putting them back to sleep you have to change their clothes because the bottle leaked. My sister in law purchased the same bottles at a later time and hers leaked as well. Do not purchase these bottles unless you want to be constantly cleaning up after them. Huge disappointment!

This product is NOT what it represents!I bought these bottles for two features.....1) doesn't leak and 2) helps prevent colic! These bottles leak after the second use! These bottles are NOT cheap and it is COMPLETELY frustrating to have to change a newborn at 3am because of a bottle leaking! I am completely unsatisfied with these bottles!

No RegretsI really like Avent bottles. They have all interchangeable parts, from 4oz bottles to 9 oz bottles to the sippy cup. Because of this feature there are less products to buy and it's easy to ween your baby/toddler from the bottle to sippy cup because the sippy cup lid can attach to the bottle, and since your baby is used to the look and feel of the bottle it's an easy transition.
I have read the complaints of other Avent bottle users and I don't understand how the bottles leak on everyone. If you use the provided ring, or tightly screw the lid on there is no leaks. I don't find it hard to use the extra piece/ring either. Other bottles are not as sterdy or well-made as Avent bottles are.
