Great for Breastfed babies!When we received the product it was clean and well packaged. The bottle came with a large variety of flows, and strengths so that older babies wouldn't bite through it,and younger babies who were breast feeding wouldn't get nipple confusion- handy! My daughter used to use the Avent Nipples when she was a baby and she was a professional at it. My infant son has been refusing bottles as of late, but before his strike these were the only bottle he would use. We tried with the different levels, and he didn't seem to want any of them. When used, my children never have issues with gas or colic, and actually seem easier to burpl. Really the only con to bottles in general is that you are supposed to boil them after each use, and what mom really has time for that? Overall I would definitely recommend them. The shape and size are perfect, and they are the best choice for breastfed babies! Hopefully my son will get over his boobs-only policy soon.
* I received this product free as part of the weespring parent panel, but the opinions I expressed are all mine, and 100 percent honest

Baby and Mommy Approved!I was given this bottle to try as part of the weeSpring Parent Panel. My baby is 3 months old. She has been using bottles since birth as it took time for my milk to come in. We give her one bottle of breast milk every evening so my husband can have an opportunity to feed her. She is a very gassy baby and spits up a lot. We have tried a half dozen brands of bottles. We prefer bottles that pace how fast she is feeding and prevent her from swallowing excess air. The Philips Avent Natural Baby Bottle met these requirements. We used the bottles with the preemie size 0 nipples. She was able to take 4oz from this bottle in about 20 minutes. With other bottles, we noticed that she would dribble milk out of the corners of her mouth and seemed to choke on the milk. With the size 0 nipple, we didn't have ANY dribbling. I think the Dr. Brown's bottles do a little bit better in terms our preventing swallowed air (I'd give them an A+ for this), but the Philips Avent Natural Baby Bottle did a pretty good job (I'd give them an A- for this). The anti-colic vent does work. I really like the shape of the bottle. It is easy for me to hold with small hands. My husband who has giant hands has no problem either. Once you know how to assemble the bottle it is easy. The first two times I used the bottle I didn't realize you had to pull the nipple through the ring up to a ridge on the nipple. As a result we had leakage around the ring. But, given that it was assembled incorrectly, it still did a great job :)! My husband has noticed a trade off between how tight the ring needs to be screwed on and how well the anti-colic vent works. He feels like the ring needs to be loose enough to let air out, but not loose enough to leak. I like how wide the mouth of the bottle is. This makes cleaning the bottle easier. The nipple is easy to clean if it hasn't been sitting around for a while. Sometimes my husband leaves the overnight bottle out until the next day and getting the fat out of the grooves in the nipple becomes a bit of a chore. No bottle is perfect, but I'd definitely buy this bottle to use in the future.

This is it!!I am a mom of five. I have tried every bottle available. These bottles are amazing!
My babies go between bottles and nursing. I've had the most success with these Natural Bottles.
I pump into these bottles. Pumping is quite a chore and it would upset me to see my milk spilling out when my baby used other bottles. My baby always had milk dribble down his chin and out the sides of his mouth. But not with these bottles! His lips create a perfect suction on the base of the nipple so that none of my milk escapes.
I also love the petals inside the two-layered nipple. They mimic the feel of the breast. Also, the nipple is very flexible.
I saw some people comment about nipple collapse. If this happens, a faster flow of nipple should be used. There is a vacuum system that allows air flow, but if the baby is drinking to fast, there us no time for it to work. Upping the nipple size is a quick fix. There are more holes in the faster flow that allow more milk to flow out. This means the baby doesn't need to suck as hard to get milk, allowing the nipple to work properly.
The nipple double seals in the collar which makes it very secure.
I wish these bottles were available when my first was born.
I own 3 nine ounce, and 3 nine ounce with the cute elephant design. I want to get the cute monkey ones next!

Best Feeding Experience!I received several types of bottles as gifts at my baby shower. I switched from breast milk to formula after 1.5 weeks. I was not producing enough, and my daughter needed more food! We tried 2 other brands before using the Avent bottles. She was not a fan, and we were left with a gassy, fussy, still-hungry baby. Once we offered her this bottle, it was smooth sailing. She has happy feedings, doesn't gulp or choke, and minimal gas & spit-up.
Mama loves the design of the bottles, the ease in cleaning, and the durability. I would recommend these from birth to 12 months. Great product!

MADE IN INDONESIA?I have 3 boys and all of them used Avent bottles, my 2 boys used the classic bottles and now for my 3rd, I chose the natural.. As far as I know, all of the bottles I had was "Made in England" since the brand is Philips which originated from Europe so that makes it authentic.. I bought these bottles online, and im just concerned about the authenticity of these bottles so I immediately searched on here using the product number..glad to know it is! So far so good..

Don't like natural bottlesI bought the natural bottles since my baby was exclusively breastfed initially. I thought they would make a great transition to bottles. I am disappointed with these bottles. My son ends up with more milk on him than he consumes. I have given him time thinking he would just need to adjust to the bottle, but it has not improved. They leak terribly. Now I'm stuck with 2 unopened boxes of the 9 oz bottles that I received as a gift. I wish I would have tried the classic bottles instead.

not so great product for price range.I have had these bottles for less than 2 weeks, my son does ok on the nipples, gas isn't too bad, but after less than a week of normal washing, the measurements on the side of the bottles are already coming off....looks like we are in the market for bottles yet again. This was a waste of money for us.
