Loved by baby and parentsAs a mom to a toddler and an exclusively breast fed 5 month old I wanted a bottle that not only would my baby take, but that wouldn't give him excess gas and I wanted something that wouldn't take me ages to clean (because chasing a 2.5yo doesn't give you much free time). Also as more and more info comes out about the dangers of plastic I wanted glass. This bottle has exceeded my expectations. The nipple is wide and my baby immediately latched very easily-win #1. Some other bottles collapse while he would eat and/or he had a hard time getting the last bit of milk out (for those of you who pump...you understand how every tiny bit of breast milk is liquid gold) we love that we have neither of those problems with this bottle. We have been very fortunate that our son doesn't have colic but he is a bit gassy and we actually think that he spits up less when he drinks from the bottle than he does from the breast. The last big win is that clean up is a breeze because there are not a million parts. The bottles get major bonus points because they are the exact size as my breast pump so I don't have to use an adaptor. One thing to note is that if you are sleep deprived and maybe bleary eyed you might not notice that the nipples have numbers on them (or maybe I'm the only one that missed that!). We accidentally were using the number 2 nipples and the bottles were going down crazy fast but once we realized they were marked it was a much better pace.
It should be noted that I received this product as part of the weeSpring Parent Panel.

I love this glass bottlesI was looking for bottles that were easy to put together, with not that many part and that would do the job, and this Avent bottles did exactly that, and they're also very cute looking, specially the 4oz ones. I prefer glass over plastic because I think is more durable and safer, but the daycare wouldn't allow me to use them there, which is very logical. I also enjoy the fact that the nipple has a "natural shape" my baby was breastfeed and the transition was very smooth. The only thing that would've make this a 5 star review is that they'll let you choose the nipple size for the bottles. For example, my baby was using a size 3 nipple but the bottle came with a size 2 so I couldn't use them and had to get some.
Another thing that I'd like to add that the Philips customer service is by far one of the best I had contacted, my first bottles arrives chipped and they replacement at no cost without questions asked.

Quality, affordable glass bottle!The Philips Avent glass bottles are excellent. They are very easy to clean & seem to be made of good quality, sturdy glass.
I will say, the price of glass bottles always discouraged me from purchasing any, but I actually did buy some myself before I even received the free ones (Thanks to the weeSpring Parent Panel for providing me with this bottle!) because these are affordable. Also, the fact that they are glass rather than plastic is very important to me. I have stopped using plastic as a drinking container for my my family after I noticed that water left in a plastic sippy cup too long tastes disgusting... obviously there is some leeching of the plastics going on.
I didn't try these on my baby since she doesn't use bottles, but my toddler had no issues with it for an occasional bottle of milk at naptime. It even survived a few falls so far.
I would absolutely recommend these to anyone looking for reasonably priced bottles - whether or not they were planning to get glass ones.

Baby who hates bottles loves this bottle!Thank you to the WeeSpring Parent Panel for sending me these bottles for review! My baby is 9mo and has hated bottles. So I was eager to try another bottle but not expecting anything. When I handed him the Phillips Avent Natural Glass bottle, he smiled! I don't pump very often but he's been taking some water in the bottles and they are sturdy enough that I don't worry when he starts playing "drop it." Part of my frustration with bottles was that there were so many pieces and I had no idea how to put them back together again. These bottles are super easy, with just a few pieces and no confusion! I wish I would have had these bottles from the beginning, I probably would have been more consistent in offering a bottle!

Love a glass bottle option!I love the option of having a glass bottle to use for my little one. The fact that I can heat up breastmilk and not worry about the plastic is a huge bonus. However, my little one does not latch very well on the nipple so we have a hard time getting her to eat from them. I wish that wasn't the case but we will still use them in our bottle warmer and transfer the milk afterwards. These bottles are very easy to clean and I love that I can just put them in the dishwasher! Thanks weeSpring Parent Panel for sending me these bottles!

I wanted to Love themSo I've always loved the idea of glass baby bottles for the purity of the materials. I had the chance to try these baby bottles through the Wee Spring parent panel. In short, day three, crash and glass everywhere.
I was sad because I loved them. I wanted to keep loving them. The design was nice and big, easy for little hands to use. The nipple may be my favorite part of the whole bottle. It was easy for latching for both my 3 month old and toddler. This package comes with three 8 oz bottles. They are super easy to clean. They survive boiling, microwave and the dishwasher. Well thankfully I have carpet throughout most of the apartment bc this would've ended within the first 15minutes with my toddler. Sure enough, he managed to hit the right spot on the baseboard on a corner and it shattered. I know they sell rubber protective cases for these. I wish it would've come with at least one. So I like these bottles, but really they are not practical because they can shatter, being that they are glass obviously makes them hard and so even for my little baby I don't want him to be holding it above his head for it to slip out of his hands and bonk him. I wouldn't write them off completely but definitely, do not consider these as your go-to bottles.

Excellent bottles!I am a big fan of these bottles! I decided to use glass instead of plastic because even though it might be BPA free, there are still other chemicals present that I don't want to put into my baby. The Avent glass bottles are reasonably priced and the nipples mimic the breast shape so I chose them when my baby came home from NICU at two weeks old (preemie adjusted age of negative one month old). My baby had to be fed with bottles in the NICU but I still wanted a chance to supplement formula with breastmilk and I was concerned that he would not switch readily between bottle nipples and the breast, but the Avent nipples are close enough that he wasn't too confused and will latch on to the breast too. We started with the 4 oz bottles and have recently switched to using the 8 oz. bottles. The 8 oz are comfortable to hold with the indentions in the glass and they balance nicely in your hand. I found the size 2 nipples flow a little too quickly for my 3 month old (adjusted age of 7 weeks) so I still use the size 1 nipples.
These bottles are very easy to clean all parts (a huge plus because you clean bottles constantly!) and they fit in the average bottle warmer easily. I have been using the Avent bottles for three months now and the measurements on the side have not worn off or faded at all, the bottles have not scratched and they still look new. I am very impressed with how well they have held up and will continue using them and buying more as we grow.
Thanks to the weeSpring Parent Panel for sending me these bottles!

Beware! These LEAK!Over the past couple of months we have had several incidents where these bottles have leaked. This just started happening more recently and I'm not sure what has changed. We know how to assemble it! The concept of using glass was appealing and these bottles are very durable, but the CON of it leaking greatly outweighs any PROs. Last night I was feeding my daughter before bed and she got completely soaked. She was already sleepy but since she got soaked I had to change her and then it took forever to get her to sleep. We will not be using these bottles anymore.
