Product Description

This threesome of 9-ounce bottles is a great way to round out your Avent feeding system. Avent is known for its broad, soft, silicone nipple, which mimics the shape and feel of the breast—providing moms the flexibility to switch between bottle- and breastfeeding.

Avent nipple airflow
Avent's anti-vacuum skirt and one-way air valve help reduce colic.
The naturally shaped nipple has a built-in anti-vacuum skirt and one-way air valve to ensure that liquid, rather than air, flows through the nipple and reduces baby's chances of developing gas or colic. The bottles are a snap to assemble, can be reused, and their wide necks make them easy to clean and fill.

If you use the Avent Natural Feeding System, these 9-ounce bottles are fully interchangeable, allowing you to pump, store, and feed from the same bottle. Each bottle is made of durable, polycarbonate plastic and comes with a sealing cap to prevent leaks.



This three-pack of 9-ounce bottles is a great way to round out your Avent bottle system. The Avent system is known for its broad, soft, silicone nipple, which mimics the shape and feel of the breast and reduces a baby's chances of swallowing too much air and developing gas. The wide-neck bottles make it easy to clean and fill them, and each has its own sealing cap to prevent leaks. --Andrea Linsky

Customer Reviews:

  • Leaky!
    Leaks! Especially difficult to get a tight seal if you use one hand (while holding baby). A much better design is the Breast Flow Learning Curve First Years bottles. Instead buy The First Years 3pk. Breastflow 5oz. Bottles These worked much better for me. ...more info
  • Avent bottles contain BPA
    Avent bottles have more BPA than any other leading brand. BPA free brands include Born Free, Nurture Pure, MAM, Green to Grow, Baby Life and Adrini.

    (For those that missed the news reports - BPA is a chemical found in some plastics that a recent National Institutes of Health report indicated may be harmful, especially to infants.)

  • great bottles
    i have zero complaints about these bottles. wish i had bought them in the first place (i started out with the playtex nurser system). they may be pricy compared to other bottles, but, you don't have to buy liners for these bottles. my daughter found these bottles much easier to hold herself than the playtex ones and these have a bigger selection of nipple flow to choose from (besides slow and fast, where fast for playtex really just means not so slow), so i put them away and got more of these, and my daugher was a much happier baby.

    what i found with the leaking some people complain about: if there is any liquid in the seal it will leak. this problem can easily be solved by wiping the inside of the ring that holds the nipple and the outside rim of the bottle with a dry rag, and if it squeaks when you screw the lid on, you're not going to have any leaks.

    hope this helps!...more info
  • Works for us.
    I prefer the Avent bottles over the Playtex Ventaire brand. They both worked well and have advantages over one another. This is my non scientific review.

    Head to head comparison:

    Criteria_____________Comment
    1.Bottle Material______Avent stays clearer and is more dense.
    2.Bottle Design_______Playtex curve shape is innovative.
    3.Nipple Design_______Baby likes the Avent shape better. Avent nipple size is labeled more visibly. The Avent recommended flow rate by age fits my baby more.
    4.Vent system________Both work well. No difference.
    5.Assembly Ease______Avent has less parts, but the nipple is harder to assemble. Avent recommends wetting the nipple before assembly. Slight advantage to Playtex.
    6.Cleanning Ease______Avent has less parts. This is a big timesaver for me. Playtex has 2 more parts to clean. It's a hassle if you are cleaning a lot of them.
    7.Overall Quality______Avent bottle seems better constructed.

    I'm not saying Avent is better than Playtex. I just prefer Avent more. because it fits my baby and my needs better....more info
  • Great bottle
    I have used this system for 9 weeks now. The bottle will leak if you do not tighten the ring enough or correctly - I test shake before I feed and if its wrong I unscrew and reseat the nipple. My daughter has less gas with these bottles than with the Playtex bottles I tried. If your child gags as one reviewer commented you need a slower nipple. I use the standard nipples and not the adjustable flow nipples. I have the adapter system that allows me to pump into the bottle and I like the convenience of being able to cap that bottle when done and refrigerator it until feeding time. These bottles do well in the dishwasher and clean up easily....more info
  • Best Design Bottle and Teat for Hungry Baby.
    These are the widest bottles that I have seen available. They are well made and easy to assemble. I sterilise mine every day and there has been no fading of level markers (a problem with another make I tried.) or discolouration of bottles. They come with a whole range of accessories like handles and sippy cup teats for older babies and so will go from Day 1 right through to when you no longer need sippy cups. The best thing for me is the fact that you can get specially designed teats that allow for thicker liquids (my son had rice in his milk at 8 weeks (with Doctors approval) because he is so big (90th Percentile) and was so very hungry. The Adjustable Flow teat has a slot cut instead of a hole and so the flow depends on the way the teat is lined up with the babies nose. What a fantastic idea and such a godsend for us. They also hook up directly to an avent breast pump either the manual or electric. ...more info
  • Careful, they leak easily
    We've used Avent bottles for our 9 month old since getting rid of the Playtex Ventaire (tempermental flow) and Dr Brown's (tired of cleaning all the parts) and settled into these bottles. Enjoy the bottles except every time we feed him we have to turn the bottle sideways over the sink to make sure it's not leaking. We've had numerous incidences with saturated baby and saturated mommy. The only way to be sure you've put the nipple on right is to test it every time. Even last week I did the test and about 5 minutes into feeding him it began to leak on him. I had my finger under his chin so I caught it early.
    I also now wonder with the "bad press" about the hard plastic bottles whether I should have started with the recommended Bornfree bottles. "Researchers found that after heating four brands of baby bottles (Avent, Evenflo, Dr. Brown's and Disney/First Years) , they emitted between five and eight parts per billion of BPA. " The FDA is still saying as of Jan. 08, there is still not enough evidence the BPA's are harmful. We're staying with the Avent bottles but don't heat them beyond room temp or a little cooler. ...more info
  • Possibly unsafe plastic, leaks
    These bottles leak like crazy... and they are/were (at the time of this review) made from potentially unsafe plastics (PVC, phtalates). I would stay away from this brand. We've been very happy with First Years Soothies instead....more info
  • Great Bottles
    I literally spent hours researching baby bottles online. Before having my son, I had zero experience with babies and wanted everything perfect. I was hesitant at first to purchase these bottles as there were several reviews about the leaking. I have never had a leak and my son is 3 months old and bottle fed exclusivley. I just think the people are screwing them on too tightly which breaks the seal of the nipple. The bottles are extremely durable and show no signs of wear. The only drawback is that they are kind of pricey. I purchased 12 bottles and needed every single one. The replacement cost for replacing the nipples monthly until 4 months is costly too. About $5.00 for 2. That is $30.00 a month for me with 12 bottles. Also, save a little money and skip the 4 ounce bottles. 9 ounce bottles hold 4 ounces just as well, and they won't grow out of them in a month!

    By the way-the Munchkin basket for dishwashers is an excellent companion for cleaning these bottles in the dishwasher. One for the nipples and one for the white rings.

    These are the only bottles I'll ever use....more info
  • Leaky, messy.
    i bought the whole line of avent products becaue i've heard a lot of good things about them. the only product that i absolutely love is their pump. but not so for the feeding system. i got no problem with the bottles, but the nipple itself leaks/drips faster than my baby can handle. if he stops to take a breath from drinking, he'll get frustrated because the milk is still flowing. however, the nipple did not cause nippple confusion in my case, for the week we put up with the leakage, the baby was able to go back and forth from breast to bottle with no problem.
    switched to soothie bottle and he's a happy baby....more info
  • LOVE them!
    We have many types of bottles, and these are by far my favorite. They're sturdy, comfortable to hold, baby loves Avent nipples, and best of all... they're easy to clean!! I've never had a problem with these bottles. If you are in the market for new bottles, GET THESE....more info
  • Great Bottles!
    I've NEVER had a problem with these bottles. Before I bought them, I read other reviewers posts and noticed that there were a lot of negative comments about them. However, I decided to go ahead and try them out and I'm glad that I did. These bottles are bulky and durable. While a little on the pricey side, I think they are well worth it. My son is now 4 months old and has never had any problems with gas.

    For clarification purposes, I've never had a problem with them leaking. I've always followed the manufacturers instructions by making sure that the nipples are wet BEFORE assembly....more info
  • Never leaked for me...
    I was reading through these reviews and noticed that a lot of people are having problems due to the bottles leaking. I have been using these bottles for three months and have not had a single leak. What I do is pull out the nipple and clean it and then I put the nipple through the screw casing and pull it tightly through to make sure it's tight...then i rinse the whole assembled nipple part again and I'm good to go. Maybe the problem is due to those parents not ensuring that the nipple is firm against the screw cap.

    FYI.... Also if you are a new mom, ensure that these bottles fit into your diaper bag. I had to do a ton of research to find a diaper bag (bumble bag!!! excellent product) that would fit the extra wide bottles, however, I have a friend who just bought any bag and cannot use these bottles as they do not fit in the pockets. ...more info
  • NEW Nipple Design!! NO More LEAKS!!!

    I used these bottles with my first son and would have given them about 3.5 stars. I would be the first to tell you if they were not fixed just right they would leak. After trying all others once again with my daughter I decided to use these. When I went to buy new nipples I noticed they looked different. Oh, wow, what a diffrence. Baby is 4 months old and no leaks. The new nipples have a raised edge that guarantees the nipple is tight in the collar. Then there is a lip that hugs the rim of the bottle to guard against leaks. The REALLY great thing is you can tighten these bottle to your hearts content. I tightened it as tight as I could and it didn't leak a bit. The new nipples have the words "Extra Soft" on the package and if you look closely they look different around the bottom. I am extremely satisfied with these bottles now and will use them untill baby is weaned....more info
  • WARNING! Avent Bottles Are Made Using BPA Bisphenol-A.
    I liked Avent Bottles, my daughter Liked them too! Then I found out about Bisphenol -A being used to make the Bottles. After re-searching Bisphenol -A, I discovered that exposing my baby to harmful chemicals with the potential for long term affects later in life, was definitely not for me!! There are other options out there, all glass bottles are safe, as well as Born Free, Mam by Sassy, Green to Grow and Adrini. Do your own research. I'm really surprised the non Bisphenol -A Free bottles haven't been recalled yet! I'm sure it's just a matter of time, before enough people are educated.

  • Great Product...Only complaint is they leak
    If it weren't for the leaking, I would have give the product 5 stars. I have had great luck with these bottles and nipples, except for the fact that sometimes they leak. It does help to wet the nipple and ring prior to putting them together, but if you don't have a perfect seal they will leak when you start to shake the bottle for mixing. Leaking is also the biggest complaint I have heard from other moms. It does not happen every time I make a bottle, but often enough that I have considered complainig to Avent. This has been my ONLY frustration with product.

    Otherwise, they are dishwasher durable and the markings on the bottle are still on after months of use and washings. ...more info
  • I have tried almost every brand
    I cannot understand how anyone can give these bottles a bad rating. I have tried about every brand on the market and this brand is hands down the best bottle on the market. All you have to do is make sure the tops are screwed on right. I have 9 bottles and none of them leak....more info
  • Avent versus Dr. Brown's
    Both bottles do a fine job of keeping bubbles out of your baby. We tried and used both bottles with our boy. The real deal between the two is the nipple. The nipple on Avent bottles are larger at the base and firmer than the Brown bottles. When we first introduced the bottle to our breast fed boy he did not take to the Avent bottles. He just couldn't get comfortable around the nipple. We switched to Dr. Bown's and he took to it with little problem. As he got older and bigger we later switched and are currently using the Avents. Why did we switch? Cleaning Dr. Brown's bottles SUCKS! There are so many little parts that all need special brushes to clean with that it takes forever to wash bottles. Plus, the Brown bottles are thinner but taller and just don't seem to pack away as well. However, if your baby is picky there isn't much you can do. For expecting parents, I would not recommend buying a bunch of one type over the other. Buy one of each first and see which one you baby is comfortable with....more info
  • Quality product not made in China!
    I see a lot of complaints about these bottles leaking, which they do if the top is not on just so. I agree, they leak occasionally. Compared to other products, they are very well manufactured, easy to use etc. I would really give 4.5 but I didn't see an option to give a fraction of a star. These bottles are made in England which is a country with real wages, rules etc, and it is important to support countries and economies that are in tune with our own. Most bottles leak. I guess because these cost a little more it is dissappointing when they leak, but after a few uses, I was able to put the lid on so that they didn't leak, just practice. This is a good product. ...more info
  • They do not Leak...they Pour!
    Here is our experience: The nice thing about Avent is they are very easy to clean, but the mess they make isn't. This is our first time using Avent bottles. I did not use Avent with our first two children and I never experienced the leaking with their bottles as I am with the Avent bottles. The leaking doesn't happen right away. It begins about two weeks after you have been using the product. It doesn't just leak, it pours out! Of course, I thought we were just over tightening or not pulling the nipple all the way through the ring, but that was not the problem. Please note that Avent has an extensive page on their web-site regarding trouble-shooting for leaky bottles. That speaks for itself. One should not have to manipulate or figure out how to screw a nipple onto a bottle, no matter if it's 3:00 in the morning, out shopping or at home in the middle of the afternoon. ...more info

  • Why the bottle may leak and what to do about it
    Avent bottles are great however if you twist the top on too tight, there's a strong possibility that the bottle will leak.

    The reason for the leakage is the silicone nipple base rippling due to friction with the bottle when the top is twisted on tightly.
    Only very light tightening (using only your thumb and index finger) is needed. Pre-wetting the silicone nipple base also helps. Anything that avoids a lot of friction between the nipple base and the bottle rim should help. The tighter the twist the more friction you'll have therefore tightening it more may cause it to leak more.

    On the base of the nipple there is a little silicone circular flap. This flap creates the valve and is built into the nipple. When the top is twisted on, this flap sits against the inside surface of the bottle opening and acts as a valve. If pressure in the bottle is low, air coming through the ring threads will push the flap inward and can enter the bottle. If the pressure in the bottle is not low, milk presses the flap against the bottle opening and the flap acts like a seal keeping the milk in.
    If this flap is not perfectly smooth and circular in shape but has some ripples due to friction (while tightening the top), it may not act as a good seal. Overtightening the top decreases the effectiveness of the seal.

    If your Avent bottle is leaking resist the urge to twist the top on tighter as this actually makes the problem worse. Instead, loosen the top a little to create a better seal. Remember you only need to tighten the Avent bottle tops very lightly....more info
  • A sigh of relief!!!!!
    I have been desperate in trying to have our daughter take a bottle for a few months now (she is 4.5 months old), nothing seemed to be working....a variety of bottles were tried all claiming to be the one your baby would take easily, but to no avail, nothing worked. Then I had the recommendations of friends about the Avent bottles. I ordered the 9oz. bottles and the Magic sippy cups for use in later months. This weekend has proved to be a miracle, my daughter took a bottle almost as easily as nursing! Whew! Then, again today another bottle without any trouble! I think the answer is the nipple design and silicone.....whatever it is, it even works for the babies who really love to nurse!!!!...more info
  • waist of money
    This was the first bottle I purchased for my daughter when she was born. I was breastfeeding but since she had jaundice, I had to suppliment formula for the first 2 weeks of her life! I had the worst time with this bottle! It leaked everytime I went to shake it and whenever I would try to feed my daughter she would literaly drown because the flow was too fast. SHe would also gag and had horrible gas! I stopped with the formula till she was 6 weeks and I thought maybe since she was older she could take it a little better. It ended up being the same problems again!! I switched to the playtex nurser and those bottles are great! I would recommend them to anyone who is breast and bottle feeding! My daughter did not get confused and she did not drown in formula! Even though it is a little more work with the drop in system, I dont care! I can push the air out of the bottle and she swallows less air and she has less gas and spits up less! ...more info

  • Leaky (yes, I read the directions)
    My daughter loves these bottles, as do I. My only complaint is that they leak at least 60% of the time and I often don't realize it until her shirt is soaking wet. I now have to take an extra 15-20 minutes every night (preparing the bottles for daycare) making sure the top on every bottle is screwed on "just right"... not too tight and not too loose (and not askew). It's very frustrating trying to find that perfect balance; and, I only know I've reached it after I've tilted each and every bottle in every possible direction, stood them back up and waiting to make sure no milk comes trickling down the side. To the previous reviewer (who may have been one of the lucky ones to never have come across this problem), it is definitely NOT user error; it is a flaw in the design and it very well may not affect EVERY bottle/top combination. But it's worth AVENT paying some serious attention to.

    Now once the tops are adjusted, the feeding system is fabulous... from the way my daughter latches on to how easy it is to clean. I've been using these bottles for almost a year and will most likely continue to use them until she has fully graduated to a sippy cup....more info
