Providing Baby with Comfort with the New Philips Avent Anti-colic Bottle with AirFree vent

When it comes to baby and providing the care and comfort they need, as parents, we not only seek out the advice from others, but also the products that can be helpful. For me, and for Heather, we have learned that every baby is different and that there are certain brands and products that we turn to for each of our babies. So, when we were introduced to the new Philips Avent Anti-colic bottle with AirFree vent, we knew that it was not only a product we wanted to check out, but one that Heather could use when caring for Zoey as well.

See like many babies, when bottle feeding, Zoey can become fussy and irritable due to the discomfort she might experience from the air in her belly, known as colic. Like many parents, Heather has found that since her baby cannot voice the issue of discomfort, she, as a parent, must find ways to relieve the gas or products that can reduce the issue. So when we learned that this new bottle from Philips Avent, is designed to help baby swallow less air when drinking, we were curious to see and learn more about how this is possible.

The first thing that stood out to us was the AirFree vent, which can be seen inside the bottle itself. With this feature, we noticed that when Zoey goes to drink her bottle,  the nipple fills up with the milk, and not with extra bubbles or air! Even when she drinks at an angle, the flow stays constant. We learned that this happens because the vent is designed to help baby swallow less air when they are drinking by keeping the nipple full and drawing the air away from the nipple. This allows for feeding times that Heather enjoys with Zoey. And it’s a comfortable time for both of them.

From there, we noticed that with the nipple shape, it is designed to create a secure latch. The ribbed texture helps to keep the nipple from collapsing. The nipple comes in a variety of flow rates, so the bottle can keep up with your growing baby. Then when it comes to the other features, Heather found that the new Philips Avent Anti-colic bottle with AirFree vent is not only very simple to clean after feedings, but that she can also mix and match easily with other Philips Avent Anti-colic bottle sizes she has as Zoey grows, like the larger bottles that Zoey likes and even the training cups that she will start her on in the next year. Heather can easily mix and match the lids and continue using the nipple. Which in all makes the choice to add this bottle to your baby’s feedings, a choice that both you and baby are sure to appreciate!

I only used Avent bottles with my 2 daughter when they were babies, because they are the best! I wish I had the AirFree vent, because I really think it would have helped with gas and digestion. I will keep these bottles in mind for all my pregnant friends.
