  • Perfect all-inclusive bottle-feeding shower gift!
    Reviewed by lubelia - January 30, 2020

    I had the pleasure of receiving the Phillips Avent Natural All-in-One bottle gift set through the Stellar Product Testing Panel. I would highly recommend this set as a shower gift especially to a mom who plans to pump. Excluding the pump & pump accessories, the beauty of this product is that you don't have to think about what you need to get started bottle-feeding...it's all here! My favorite features of this set are the electric bottle warmer and sterilizing bags. The bottle warmer is easy to use (once you figure out what the symbols on the dial mean) and it warms as it should. However, the manual has an error in the "Express warming reference table," where the time needed to warm milk in small amounts (up to 5 ounces) is wrong. The time needed to warm greater amounts of milk should increase, not decrease. So, it should read 3.5 min. for 2-3 oz, 4.5 min. for 3-3.7 oz, and 5.5 min. for 4-5 oz...not the other way around! See the picture I included. The microwaveable sterilizing bags are super easy, effective, and can be used up to 20x each bag. Fabulous product. Beats boiling water to sterilize everything! One final feature I should mention is the package of sealing discs that come with the set--these are useful not only as lids for storing breast milk in the bottles, but also for using the bottles as baby-food storage containers. AND, baby food can also be warmed up in the warmer! Great feature. Highly recommend this set, especially as a gift for the new mom!

  • Must-have starter set
    Reviewed by LSohn - January 31, 2020

    I was given this bottle set to try as part of the Stellar Product Testing Panel. It is a really great starter set, whether you feed your baby formula or breastmilk. It comes with four bottles in two different sizes and four nipples in two different sizes. The bottles are a good size and shape, and I think will be easy for my LO to hold on his own when he gets to that point. The nipples are a good fit for my baby, and he has no issues with gas or reflux afterwards. The caps that come with the set make them nice storage bottles, and I imagine I’ll use them and the little bottles for the solid baby food later. This also comes with a brush to use to wash everything and 5 sterilization bags that can be used 20 times each. There are two pacifiers and a plush giraffe attachment included. My son currently prefers the Soothie over the more traditional pacifier, and he loves holding onto and chewing on the giraffe. The plush comes off easily, which makes cleaning items separately a simple task. I thought that fact would also mean he would constantly pull it off, but he hasn’t yet. Lastly, and the most pleasant surprise is the bottle warmer. I never used one with my first child, thinking they were a waste of valuable counter space and that it was just as easy to thaw/warm milk other ways. This warmer is small enough to go in a cabinet when not in use and makes preparing bottles effortless. It’s very easy to use, and the slow warming setting is so convenient. When my baby starts to stir from his nap, I drop the bottle in the warmer and takes about 15 to 20 minutes to get to the perfect temperature. If I don’t have that much time, the other settings take 3-5 minutes depending on starting temp and volume. Overall, I highly recommend this set! It has everything you need to nourish your baby and keeps it straightforward and practical.

  • Love this all-in-one!
    Reviewed by ktm248 - February 2, 2020

    This is a wonderful starter set for a new mom who either pumps or uses formula for their little one. I have been a big fan of Avent bottles since I worked in a daycare many years ago, and we used them exclusively for our son as well, so I'm thrilled to have more for my 2-month-old daughter now. She doesn't take a bottle super well yet but these are her favorite for sure, and they are so easy for caregivers to use and us to wash. Huge thanks to the Stellar Product Testing Panel for sending this my way to test out and provide an honest review! My favorite parts: The giraffe paci. We are big fans of the Soothie pacifier and had one with a hippo attached for our son, but sterilizing it is an issue because the hippo doesn't detach. I LOVE that the giraffe detaches for that reason, and also so we can easily switch it out with any other Soothie. It does also have a velcro piece to attach to a different pacifier but, in my opinion, works best with a Soothie (see picture of how it attaches). My daughter doesn't take a pacifier too well yet but still likes to cuddle the giraffe and hopefully will eventually get/keep the paci in her mouth! The quick sterilization bags. I have used similar bags in the past, but these are wonderful and so easy to use. As a pumping momma, I like to sterilize my pump parts around once a week and this is SO much easier than any other method. The bags have a spot to mark off each use so you know when you need to start the next one (20 uses per bag). The different settings on the bottle warmer. It's nice that the warmer has a quick-heat setting when you need milk ready quick and are going to watch it, but also a stay-warm setting that won't overheat the milk since breastmilk should not be overheated - with "mom-brain" and a toddler running around I need a fool-proof method to not mess that up! I also like this so I don't have to worry about caregivers knowing when to pull it out. I haven't had the opportunity to try the defrost setting yet but I look forward to using that when I go back to work and need to use my saved milk to prepare bottles. I also haven't used it for food but it's an interesting concept - I make a lot of baby food myself (only simple stuff in the blender!) and freeze it so I look forward to testing this out. The cord wrap for the bottle warmer - small feature but so nice when trying to keep kitchen countertops clear! (see picture) Since baby girl doesn't really like a paci, she hasn't taken to the other one in the set, but it was actually super nice to have both options so we could try them both! Great idea for a "starter set." Things I don't like as much: I wish the bottle warmer had an auto-shut off feature for the quick heat settings to reduce the risk of overheating. I also wish you could just put water in it to the same level for any bottle or item so you could leave it ready to use for caregivers - the water is supposed to go to the level of the milk so you can't really know how to fill it until you have the bottle in it. The bottle brush nipple end - it's just part of the hard plastic handle and I am never sure if it really does anything to clean the nipple. I also use bottle brushes to clean my pump parts and this one doesn't work as well for that either. I actually really like the brush part of it though so still use it for that, just not the nipple end. The larger bottles come with size 2 nipples. This will not be a con for everyone, but since I breastfeed and use bottles for pumped milk, I want to keep baby with a size 1 nipple always so she doesn't get used to the faster flow and reject the breast. Of course I don't really need the bigger bottles either since she'll usually only need 4 oz of breastmilk at a time - my son never used anything but the small bottles and size 1 nipples. A formula-fed baby will need bigger bottles and probably want the faster flow in time too, so for some this will be great Overall this is a great product and I definitely recommend it, especially for a new mom who isn't sure yet which bottles/pacis to use and who will need a bottle warmer - it's great to have the full set together and would make a great gift. And as always I recommend Avent bottles generally too!

  • Flawed Design Details
    Reviewed by MamaOz - February 3, 2018

    I had high hopes when I received this essential gift set from Philips Avent. My four-month-old had no issues taking a bottle before I received this set. Once received I thought the bottles were a good size, fitting nicely in most lunchboxes; however, my little one did not take to the nipple flow (2) very well. My daycare provider kept commenting on how she would thrust her tongue out in a gagging reflex every time they inserted the nipple. After a couple of days fighting feedings, I decided to go back to her previous bottle with a slower nipple flow (0-1) with no further issues. In addition, the bottle parts were quite substantial with deep grooves in the screw cap, making it nearly impossible to ensure there was no milk residue in the deep creases. As for the Philips Avent pacifiers, they were primarily blue, which aren’t exactly gender neutral, but the shape fit in her mouth well. She took to them immediately, which was a win in my book. My only quaff is that, again, the plastic is quite substantial, which poses two issues: One, as she falls asleep in her crib, the sheer weight of the thing makes it tumble out of her mouth as soon as she relaxes her lips. Two, when it does inevitably fall out of her mouth, the attached handle makes a loud clicking sound as it hits the mattress, often waking her up in her half-dozed state. And as any new parent knows, you don’t want to have to reinsert a lost pacifier every time, especially if it wakes your little one up. For this reason I cannot give her these pacifiers at night, which is typically when they're needed the most. As well-packaged this gift set of basics would be for a baby shower, I would not ultimately recommend it due to the clunky design. Thank you to WeeSpring Parent Panel for sending me this gift set to try and review.

  • Great bottle starter set for baby registry
    Reviewed by beezer - April 4, 2018

    Since I work outside the home, my baby's mostly bottle-fed, but I breastfeed whenever I can. I received the Philips Avent gift set ​when my baby was two months old, so old enough to avoid nipple confusion and young enough to avoid refusing the bottle. My baby's also a little gassy, so I more than welcome anti-colic bottles. Overall, the set is a great option for parents looking for high quality pacifiers and glass bottles to avoid any harmful chemicals in plastic. The bottles are very comfortable to hold, have a good weight to them, and don't easily slip out of your hand. It's nice a protective sleeve is included, but it fits the four-ounce bottle awkwardly. I actually almost dropped the bottle trying to wiggle it into the sleeve. In any case, I do like that the bottles don’t have many parts and are easy to clean. Likewise, the pacifiers are made of a single piece of silicone, which is easy to clean and dries quickly. However, I can't speak to the bottles' anti-colic claims since my little one didn't take to the nipples. It looked like he was enjoying his meal until I saw he consumed only a few drops of milk from the bottle after several minutes. Even though the Avent bottles have wide necks for easy cleaning, I wish they had standard-sized necks. Then, I could directly pump breastmilk into them and use them with my little one's favorite bottle nipples, which happen to fit standard bottles. Additionally, the pacifiers calmed my baby to sleep just fine, but they don't stay in his mouth long without my help. Even though my baby doesn't use these bottles, I highly recommend the set to parents who choose to exclusively bottle-feed or to parents who are deciding on what bottles to give their babies. They should no doubt be added to expectant parents' registries, and I would give the set as a baby shower gift. Thanks to weeSpring Parent Panel for sending me this Avent starter set to try and review.
