I have always used AVENT bottles for both of my kids. Although Ive never really had any problems with those bottles Im thinking about using a different bottle with my newest edition. If I had kept any of those bottles I would probably still use them but thats not the case lol. Ive heard everyone rave about the new simlac bottles, and also the drop in playtex bottles that have been around for forever! Any feedback about the bottles would be great! I just cant make up my mind!

We have Playtex Ventaire and they're great :) Never thought I'd love a bottle but they're that cool.

I got a free similac bottle. Tried it, hated it.



I use Playtex Ventaire and LOVE them. I tried switching to a cheaper bottle and it gave him bad gas :(

I used Dr. Browns for my first and the drop ins for my second and my third only likes the cheap Walmart bottles.. I tried the drop ins first with all 3 though.

We mostly use the new Avent natural bottles, but we have a few of the new Similac bottles, both are great!

I used Dr. Brown bottles and loved them. Once they were older we used the playtex drop ins.

I was shocked to get one in the mail. I was like "sweet!" and it DOES look like a good bottle. James just hated it lol.
DD it didn't matter she did fine with the cheap ones.

I think we must have had about 15 of them at one point, I just started randomly giving them away. They did look awesome, but I think my son just didn't like the nipple.

I LOVE the similac bottles. We got one from my MIL's coworker. My daughter always had trouble with bad, bad painful gas no matter how much we burped her or stirred her formula to avoid bubbles. We started using those bottles... It was like, an instant change. She took to them like a fish to water ('oh, food comes out of it? Fine with me' lol) and that paired with similac sensitive, her gas issues went to barely ever! I swear by them but babies are picky, so your baby might not like them at all.

Tried the Similac bottles and my daughter hates them. She won't take a bottle with them. Been using Avent bottles and she loves them. They're the only ones I use.

I used the vent air with my first and hated them. She liked them they were just a pain to clean. We used soothies with our second and loved them but they stopped making them so we got the Avent with our third and really liked them. Somewhere over the last year we have switched our son to the Avent natural bottles and really really like those so well be using those with our fourth.
