Philips Avent Natural BPA Free Bottle Review
Buy Philips Avent Natural Feeding Bottle (BPA Free)
From £6.12 for 125 ml (4 fl oz)
Philips Avent have launced a BPA Free plastic bottle. The anti-colic feature is in built into the teat. There are only three parts for the Avent bottle making it quick to assemble and clean. The bottles have a wide neck and a silicone vari-flow teat. Easy to use bottle. Shame about the leaking.
Philips Avent BPA free bottles are made from Polyether Sulphone (PES). PES is plastic is honey coloured and durable. PES is ideal for the construction of baby bottles because it can be safely and easily sterilised. Note that although PES is BPA-Free it is in the number 7 recycling category because it did not fit well into other categories.
Ease of Use
With only three parts the bottles are easy to put together when you have a fretful baby watching your every move. Every time I used the bottle it leaked. Fed up of dripping milk everywhere I’ve marked the bottle down specifically because they are so messy.
Easy to clean and fit in steriliser with room to spare.
Key Benefit: Less parts to assemble and clean.
Disappointing Feature: Leaky bottle problems mean soaking wet baby.
