    How to assemble the Philips Avent feeding bottle

    Published on 2019-11-17

    You can easily disassemble and assemble your Philips Avent feeding bottles to keep them nice and clean. Just follow these simple step-by-step instructions. You can also find them in the user manual of your bottle and/or teats.

    Step 1

    Before first use: boil the bottle for 5 minutes.

    Before each use: closely inspect all items. Pull the teat in all directions to check for wear and tear. Dispose of the bottle/teat at first signs of damage or weakness

    Step 2

    Use the tongs to keep the bottle and teat as sterile as possible when assembling.

    The teat is easier to assemble if you wriggle it upwards instead of pulling it up in a straight line.

    Using tongs

    Step 3

    Make sure you pull the teat through until its lower rim is even with the screw ring.

    Setting the teat

    Step 4

    Massage the valve to make sure it's open and ensure the anti-colic feature is working.

    For optimum performance, pinch and massage the number on the teat between index finger and thumb prior to a feed.

    Checking the valve

    Step 5

    Place the cap vertically onto the bottle so that the teat sits upright.

    Proper fitting of the cap and teat

    For hygiene reasons:

    We recommend replacing teats after 3 months. Store teats in a dry, covered container.

    Purchase new bottles and teats via Philips Online Shop.
