A BPA-free anti-colic bottle, from one of the world’s most popular baby bottle brands, this offering from Philips AVENT could help stop trapped wind and colic.
Sadly your new baby may suffer from colic in his early weeks of life. One of the possible causes of colic is air trapped in your baby’s tummy. And, in my baby’s experience anyway, that wind discomfort seems to appear in the wee small hours of the night.
Philips AVENT claims that in a recent clinical study into the minutes of ‘fussing’ over a 24-hour period, that babies fed using its new BPA-free anti-colic bottle were significantly more settled, especially at night (that means 6pm – 6am).
This is due to a unique anti-colic valve built into the bottle’s teat that flexes when your baby feeds, which opens the anti-colic valve, allowing air into the bottle to prevent vacuum build-up. This means that air bubbles move from the teat into the bottle – not into your baby’s tummy.
In addition, this new Philips AVENT BPA-free Feeding Bottle is also BPA-free. That means it’s produced without the use of Bisphenol A. It’s made from a material called Polyether Sulphone (PES), making it highly durable and scratch resistant – but more importantly free from substances that may inhibit development.
The bottle comes in two sizes – the larger is 260ml, and costs £6.00, or you can get a 260ml twin pack for £11.00. It also comes in 125ml, which costs £5.50, or £10.50 as a twin pack.
What we love
Simple design, BPA-free and anti-colic, with no messy and irritating bits to fiddle with when washing and sterilising. So what’s not to like? Nothing.
I have to confess that Jack, 10 months, and I are avid fans. Like Philip AVENT’s other bottles, it’s value for money, robust and extremely simple to use – no fiddling with loads of bits in the steriliser. The benefits of anti-colic teats and BPA-free plastic only add to the appeal. While Jack is now too old to suffer from colic, after glugging away merrily on his new Philips AVENT, he does seem to burp and fart less than with other bottles.
What to watch out for
Over time and with much use the lids do not seal so well, which can lead to leaks.
Who is the Philips AVENT BPA-free Feeding Bottle best for?
Parents who want a reliable, fuss-free solution that doesn’t cost a fortune – or for any one with a windy baby.
A basic, no-nonsense, easy-to-clean bottle, the anti-colic feature does seem to lessen wind. Being BPA-free makes this offering from Philips AVENT even more reassuring to use.
