Avent Baby Bottles / Leaking bottles

1 Los Angeles, CA, United States Review updated:

For my 3 yr old daughter i used avent bottles and loved them. But now with my 3 month old baby I have been using them and I hate them because they leak. When ever I shake it to mix the formula and water it leaks!
I want my money back! I paid $18.99 for 2 4oz bottles!

    Goeie dag

    Ek is 'n moeder met 'n baba seuntjie. Van dat ek kan onthou vertel ALMAL vir my hoe goed is Avent bottels. Ek het 3 bottels gekry. En is BAIE TERLEURGESTELD want 2 van die 3 bottels lek melk. Ek moes my kind nou al vele kere droog aantrek want ek kan die melk of water uit die klere en spoeg doek uit druk dan loop dit so erg lek die bottels. NOu wonder ek maar net by myself hoekom is dit bottels dan so goed en hoekom praat almal so goed van dit want ek is GLAD NIE beindruk met die bottels nie. Op die stadium werk die R10 bottels vir my duisend keer beter as die amper R200 se bottel. Ek wil nou graag sien of Avent dan so goed is soos almal se dat hulle vir my die 2 bottels gaan vervang. Hoop ek hoor gou van enige iemand wat aan my kan diens lewer.

    I have the same leaking problem...When my daughter was born we had the non BPA free bottles and didnt have a leaking problem. Then when she was 5 months we thought we better buy the BPA free bottles and spent over $100 on them and they leak every time we shake them...we have been very frustrated with avent.

    I used their bottles six years ago with my first son and they were great. This time they leak costantly. You have to rescrew the lid several times to get a good seal. I have contacted Phillips Avent through their website and hope to have some kind of fix made by them.

    These are just terrible bottles. 1 out of every 3 leaks all over my son resulting in lost milk and a messy sticky baby. Not worth the hassle, Go with Born Free or Dr Browns. I will not be endorsing AVENT any longer.

    Avent Baby Bottles - Leaky bottles

    These bottles are horrible and useless!!! They were very expensive and leaked all over the place. Ruined clothes and blankets! I have switched to Dr. Browns bottles. Cheaper and 100% better. My son (now 6 years old) had colic very bad. I wish they had the Dr. Browns bottles back then. I use them with my 4 week old and there are no air bubbles and the gas problem is almost eliminated. Thank you Dr. Brown. Shame on you Avent :(

    I purchased 4oz Avent baby bottles (Amber colored) and they leak when feeding baby. I looked online and this was a known issue. I called Avent and they said they'd replace bottles with 9oz newer version that has an additional part, a ring that goes over the mouth of the bottle, that is supposed to prevent the leaks. 2 weeks later and the replacements haven't come yet (I called Avent back and they said they are back ordered). In the mean time, I went back to the store and bought the 9 oz newer version with the ring (they are clear not amber) and it still didn't fix the leaking problem. They are better, but still leak every once in a while.

    I'm done with Avent, I switched to Born Free bottles. The nipple collar has ridges and is easier to open when wet and more importantly, they don't leak.

    I'm a very frustrated mother of 2. Recently I've just purchased 4 Avent BPA free bottles for my newborn and they all leak every time I shake them. I have to rescrew the lid over and over again. It has been a problem to most of my friends too. Avent used to be a reputable and trustable brand, I had them 3 years ago and they were wonderful. But I'm not sure about it now. What actually happen I wonder? Can the manufacturer or the company representative explain why?

    I used Avent bottles with my 10 y/o and they were great. I now have a 7 mth old and the Avent bottles are horrible. I do not know what happened to them. They either leak when I shake them or after feeding my baby and I turn them right side up the formula that leaked into the in the ring pours out. However, I do love the sterlizer. Avent really needs to have a recall on all their bottles.

    I have used advent bottles for my 2year old. I have bought 5 of the 4 pack bottles to date and they all leaked. It is really frustrating when you spend so much money on these bottles and they don't even do what they are designed for. My child also like there soothers and fron this day on I will never purchase anything again made from philips. They are just out to make money and don't care about their customers.

    I want to throw my Avent bottles away & go buy all new ones, I am so frustrated with them leaking! There is nothing worse than a crying/hungry baby in the middle of the night and sticky milk running all over both of us! I called Avent Customer Service & they are supposed to be sending me new nipples, rings, and sealing discs. I have no received them yet, but if they don't work I'll be getting new bottles. The rep also told me that using antibacterial dish soap can ruin the nipples & rings causing them to leak, the antibacterial has a harsh component I guess. I will not be recommending these bottles to anyone!

    The Best Solution to the Avent bottles that leak would be to use the line with the additional Adapter ring that goes in between the Screw ring and the bottle itself . This ring only works on one specific bottle as the neck of these bottles are slightly shorter than the neck of the bottles with the honey color on them.While the ring is made as an additional anti colic feature of the bottle, it does eliminate any issue of leaking. If you call Avent they will replace the Honey color bottles with these bottles that have the adapter ring.
