Today marks my first product review. I doubt this series will be your typical product review that you find on most baby blogs. For the most part I have no idea what I am talking about. I have little experience in using baby products and don’t have a budget to compare and contrast multiple products. My perspective comes at some advantage. I am a new dad sharing my experience. All you are going to hear is if a product works or not. Without further ado, here begins the first of my review.
Avent Bottle: Natural
Not much can go into a bottle right? That was my first thought when Andrea and I started our baby registry adventure. The bottle aisle overcame us in a hurry. Nothing really jumped out at us as we tried to pull the trigger on a specific brand. We had a Tommee Tippee in one hand and the Avent Natural in the other. Obviously we walked out with the Avent bottles. I am not sure why we initially chose Avent, but here are our thoughts on it now.
Dad says: Easy to clean: Not sure if this is true for all bottles, but these clean up pretty easy. It doesn’t break down in a lot parts and the few pieces that do are easily put back together. I know it’s just a bottle, but when you are managing and cleaning parts to a breast pump, you definitely want a simple bottle to work with at the sink.
One problem I have is that the nipple easily kinks up when in the baby’s mouth. It’s not a big deal though because it easily resets itself as soon as you pull it out. It is one of the more pricey bottles too.
Mom says: (paraphrased by dad) Like the box claims, the nipple does have a natural look and feel to it. Owen had no problems taking this bottle. It seems to feed a little fast, but I don’t know if that is Owen just being a beast, or an issue with the nipple. He doesn’t seem to have more air in him after feeding from this bottle than when off the breast, which is great.
Owen says: -no comment. He seems to enjoy it though.
Overall I am giving this product 4.5 out of 5. It does a great job, but I can’t help but think you can have similar results with a better priced bottle.
