When you’re trying to find the right bottle for your baby, it can be a difficult task. There are so many on the market, so which one is best for your baby? It can be very difficult for some to find what works best for your baby. What if your baby doesn’t accept the brand you chose, or makes them fussier or causes more gas because of bubbles in the bottle?
I know in my case, the search for the best bottle was fierce. I wanted and needed something to help my baby with gas. She would toss and turn and kick during her sleep at night because of all the gas. I tried so many different bottles. I was at my wit’s end because I felt so bad for her because she was not getting quality sleep and was in pain. I was desperate.
I have tried so many different option. Some she didn’t like and some I didn’t like because they either leaked, or there were so many parts to the bottle that it ended up being such a chore.
If you’re dealing with a colicky baby, no one knows your struggle unless you’ve been through it. I am lucky to say that my babe was not colicky, but I have heard horror stories about how hard it is. No one is quite sure why colic happens or what the cause is. It is when a baby cries for more than three hours, three times a week for three weeks or longer. I am sorry to any mother that has to go through that. However, colic is thought to be caused or made worse by gas or tummy issues.
Philips Avent has created a bottle to address all of those issues that can cause fussiness and try to reduce it. They are in the business of saving parents sanity.
Philips Avent bottles features an Airflow venting system to reduce gas and colic by reducing air ingestion. Here are some other advantages to using Philips Avent bottles:
- Less parts to deal with for less cleaning and assembly. With only 4 parts: bottle, cap, nipple and ring, it is quick and easy to clean and use.
- When babies are fed with Philips Avent anti-colic bottles, they experienced 60% less fussing at night, than babies fed with leading competitor’s vented bottle.
- At 2-weeks of age, babies who used Philips Avent bottle showed less colic compared to babies who used a conventional bottle.
- The built in Airflex venting system keeps air away from baby’s tummy.
- The nipple has a ribbed texture prevents collapsing for uninterrupted feeds.

I have to admit, using Philips Avent anti-colic bottles were not my first bottle choices. But I am here to help you learn from my mistakes and to urge you to try this bottle first and see the results for yourself to help with any gas spit-up, burping or colic issues your baby may be experiencing. It can possibly save you a lot of time and frustration.
I love the shape and size of the bottle. Since my baby is old enough to feed herself, she can hold the bottle comfortably and feed herself her bottle. She feels independent and happy to do it herself and it frees up a bit of time for mommy.
Check it out yourself and try it first, you will save a lot of time and sanity when trying to find the best for your baby.
