When a baby’s arrival draws near, we commonly experience a plethora of emotions. Excitement, anticipation, nervousness, and even worry about whether we will adequately be prepared. We often want the best and latest for our new addition, but don’t know how or have the time to do research.
One common issue that many parents that waste time, money, and even tears on is colic. There are a variety of treatments for colicky babies, ranging from gripe water and a gentle massage to acupuncture and the pleasant hum of a white noise machine, fan, or dryer. Sadly, none of them are always guaranteed to work.
Our little guy hasn’t really had it easy after his entrance into the world, experiencing everything from chronic constipation and a head cold to colic. While he is now a healthy and happy baby that constantly smiles and laughs, he still has bouts of colic. He is inconsolable during these moments and will cry off and on for hours throughout the night. It is overwhelmingly frustrating, exhausting, and heartbreaking! In the past, this included eliminating certain foods from my diet to help improve the quality of breast milk as well as countless calls or visits to the pediatrician.
It was a game-changing moment when I was first introduced to the new Philips Avent Anti-colic bottle with AirFree vent. I learned not all bottles are the same after I had my second child. With my third child, it was then that I learned that not all anti-colic bottles are the same either! While one anti-colic bottle may work for one baby, it may not work for another baby.
The Philips Avent Anti-colic bottle was the best choice for us since it dramatically reduced the colic that he was experiencing. It helped resolved feeding issues while preventing air being swallowed, which can cause gas, colic, and reflux. This is why Philips Avent has been the number one choice for moms for over 30 years! It’s remarkable just how far this brand has evolved over the years. They’re constantly improving their products to accommodate the evolving needs of your little one. Many moms like myself love and appreciate the durability and functionality of their products.
The Philips Avent Anti-colic bottle is easy to assemble and clean with effortless ease – quickly and thoroughly! The nipple doesn’t collapse and is shaped to ensure that it is filled with milk during upright feedings. This can also help reduce the amount of air being ingested. While the AirFree vent reduces common feeding issues (reflux, gas, and colic) I have the option to go without it. I love that it provides a good start for babies and that it is compatible with a baby’s growth rate, featuring different flow rates.
My son had colic. I would have loved to have tried these bottles for him. That was a very tiring 12 weeks as a new mom!
I love advent bottles! I bottle fed my first and they were a life saver! They really help so much with a little one.
I don’t have kids but I have heard really good things about Avent products!! I will have to remember these for my mommy friends!!

Both of my kids were colicky as babies. This would have been a great bottle to try. It’s great when you find something that works so well for your kids! Looks like an innovative product.

I always make sure that my baby uses Philip Avent bottle, not because of the brand but it is really great because it is anti-colic.
A colic baby is so very difficult. I love that Avent knows this and is offering a product that helps!
My youngest had bouts of colic when he was about 4 or 5 weeks old. It was awful because no matter what I did, he didn’t want to stop crying. I’m pretty sure that both of us were in tears by the end. I breastfed so it was probably something that I ate that upset his little tummy.

These are the bottles we used for our girls and we never had any problems with colic.

I don’t have kids and so I had no idea there was different types of bottles let alone different types of colic. Totally keeping this in mind for future baby showers.
My little girl has some tummy troubles too, she has hip dysplasia and is a harness so she has a hard time getting gas to move around. I’m def. going to look into getting some of these bottles!
Love it when brands really stand on their word of excellence in their product that will serve the consumer well and these little ones needs all the support
These are really great bottles! I haven’t used them before but my friend has and raves about them! I will have to get some on hand for when baby girl arrives in April!
Sorry your little guy had colic. I’m glad there is now a bottle that can offer some relief. I don’t know much about colic. But I had it as a baby and I know it was very trying for my parents.

We used Philips Avent bottles when my daughter was a baby. Wish I would have heard of this bottle before.
My girls didn’t ever suffer from colic, thankfully. I had a best friend whose twin girls both had it. I am sure that she would have loved to have had these bottles.
Finding the right bottle for your baby isn’t always easy — every child is different. Thankfully this anti-colic one came in handy.
Oh this is so interesting and useful to know! I had no idea there were some bottles that help with colic, I will need to remember this!
No children for me but I will definitely be sharing with a few friends that have newborns. Great advice for any new mom out there.
We loved these bottles. They were really easy to clean and held up so well. The babies had an easy time holding them too.
I was very fortunate with 2 kids and no colic. It’s great to find a product that is good for baby and mom.
My youngest son had colic, but I mostly breastfed during his colic. We had a hard time finding a bottle that worked for us. Wish I would of had this last year.
I will pass this on to my friends.
These seem like really nice bottles! My son was so fussy, but would not take any bottles really. We EBF for quite some time, but these would have been great for when we left him with grandma for a date night!

Avent bottles were the ones I used for my very first baby. They were really great back then (she’s 14 now) so I can only imagine they are even better now
The Philips Avent Natural Feeding Bottle is a good quality, well-designed product that aims to make the feeding process as natural as possible, which is why it combines well with breastfeeding.
Avent is a go-to brand for many of my friends and family with little ones. The quality and consistency is always there, especially if you have kids with colic or tummy troubles.
I’ve heard great things about these bottles. Luckily both our daughters didn’t have colic but I can imagine how much more harder it would be with a baby that’s tough to settle.
