Baby Bottle Pros & Cons: Avent, Playtex, other brands.
« on: August 21, 2012, 02:32:30 am »

Hi Mommies!

I'm a first-time mom and is totally clueless on all these baby bottle brands. Most of the mommy stuff I've read online recommends Avent. Thing is, is it really that practical to spend that much on baby bottles? What are the Pros and Cons of the bottle brands you have tried/used?
I was at the mall earlier and saw these Playtex bottles. It has this airflow system which prevents gas & colic daw. They are also a lot cheaper than Avent and Dr. Brown.
help mommies, could you please educate me more or this? If you could recommend brands that are more "economical " but of almost, if not the same quality and please share your experiences/reviews.

Thank you!

Hi sis! Ganyan din ako when i was buying baby bottles before i gave birth. Sobrang dami kasi choices. The first bottle i bought for my baby was PIGEON with peristaltic nipple. Kasi nagpapabreast feed din ako that time so para daw hindi manibago si baby, peristaltic nipple daw gamitin. Meron sila both slim and wide neck, meron din yung bpa free. Maganda yung pigeon para sakin kasi wala talagang spills unlike sa AVENT. May choice ka kasi sa pigeon na y cut nipple, para kahit itaob mo yung bottle walang tutulo unless suck ni baby. Maganda yun lalo na if you plan on putting bottles sa bag mo.

Honestly, now im using AVENT but i changed the nipple to pigeon peristaltic for wide neck, then y cut. Gift lang sa baby ko nung nag 1 yr old siya so ginamit ko na lang. Ok naman siya, sobrang tibay but you really have to be careful when closing the bottle kasi minsan nagsspill bigla pag nagmilk si baby. Madaming times na din nangyari sakin na biglang may tumutulo sa bag ko, yun pala nagspill na yung water sa bottle. Madali siguro kasi nattwist yung takip niya. They claim din that their bottles reduce or prevent colic daw. But since 1 yr old na si baby nung ginamit niya yun, hindi ko masyado napansin. With PIGEON no colic din si baby as long as you burp her after every feeding.

For me sis, kung gusto mo na matibay and at the same time affordable, go with PIGEON with peristaltic nipple y cut or yung bpa free. Brand lang kasi nagpapamahal paminsan. Anyway, good luck sis. Happy shopping =)

for me sis matibay kasi ang Avent, kaya bet ko sya. nipple lang ang papalitan mo, and you can use pigeon nipples para di masyadong mahal. almost 2yrs ko ng ginagamit ang avent, at wala akong naging problema. my niece used Avent bottles until she was 4yo, nipple lang din ang pinalitan. mas prefer niya kasi uminom ng milk sa bottle to help her sleep. my sister has tried playtex, pero nagle-leak daw after a few months of using it. alam ko matibay din pigeon bottles.

my 7mos. baby is also using pigeon with peristaltic nipple din since I went back to work after my ML, exclusively breastfeed siya so sa gabi direct feed kami. so far naman ok si baby no colic, walang leak and no nipple confusion, mas affordable pa siya. btw I bought yung big bottle na 9 oz. yata kasi konti lang difference with 5oz. I hope this helps.

I am using those 3 brands mentioned..Avent, pigeon and playtex.

With pigeon, wala ako naging problem,.no leaks, no colic, di mahirap linisin, affordable!

Avent, may times na naglleak nga..pricey pa nipple so i choose those Barney nipple to replace the Avent nipple.:) mas mura pa. Didnt know na pwede rin pala pigeon sa avent.

Playtex, ok lang din. Sometimes may leak pero mas lesser leak sa Avent. I prefer this one than Avent. All 3 wala naman colic experience. Mahirap lang sa playtex, dami parts. I choose the wideneck and i like the colors.

Almost 2 years na gamit ng son ko Avent and playtex. With pigeon naman, after a year lang kasi dami na gasgas and pinupkpok ng baby ko so nabubutas na. Wala kasi sila nung tinted, clear lang sila but super satisfied ako sa pigeon.

Playtex and pigeon ako price ang usapan..:)

With my newborn daughter now, im also trying chicco..but still have avent and pigeon, gift kasi sa kanya.

Hi. I read about tommee tippee bottles in the web and no idea where to buy those. I cant find them in sm malls and landmark. I used chicco and pigeon at first 2 months, then i bought 4 bottles of dr.browns but still using my old bottles though i prefer dr.browns among them all. Planning to try avent and tommee too. ^_^

I'm using 3 brands. Avent, Dr. Browns and Pigeon. Yung Dr. Browns gift ng SIL ko nung baby shower ko. Padala niya from Hawaii pa. yun kasi yung nirequest ko kasi sabi ng cuz ko nun, maganda daw. Set yung akin. Mixed feeding din kasi si baby ko. Pero nung nasa hospital ako since wala pa akong milk nun, nagpanic tita ko kaya pinadede sa bottle si baby, kaso parang masyadong malaki yung butas ng nipple kaya bumili mom ko ng Pigeon. Yun din daw kasi yung brand ng bottle ko nung baby ako kaya tested na. So far maganda naman. Actually pinalitan ko ng pigeon nipple yung Dr. Browns ni baby. Medyo naglileak nga lang and hassle lang talagang linisin. Yung Pigeon, madaling linisin kasi madaling magcrack yung cap niya kaya bumili kami nung replacement na plastic na. Avent naman is a gift from SIL ulet. Okay naman and matibay talaga and hindi naglileak. Kaya lang pricey talaga yung nipple niya. Didn't know na pwede pala yung pigeon dun. try ko minsan. :) Yung october box naman namin from SIL, MIL, FIL (nasa HAwaii na kasi sila) may Playtex bottles. yung disposable para daw di na ako mahirapan maghugas. May nakapagtry na ba ng disposable?okay po ba?

During baby bottle shopping,sales ladies in each brand introduced to me their products so i happened to know most of the bottles,got interested with playtex nurser which fits playtex disposable liners. Its nice to bring it during long trips and outings so u dont need to carry many bottles. You just have to dispose the used liners (plastic made). In each feedings u have to place a new liner in same old bottle. Cool. Im planning to buy one kapag puwede na mag travel with baby ^_^

i also recommend pigeon bottles... affordable nga siya but satisfactory naman talaga ang performance.. sa baby ko nga normal nipple lang eh kasi hindi ko siya nasanay sa peristaltic nipple. i stopped breastfeeding kasi after a month, april kasi ako nanganak and super init.. pawisin pa naman ako kaya naawa ako kay baby pag dinidikit ko sakin.. we have First Years bottle, nirecommend sakin kasi yun ng dentist ko na friend, para maganda daw yung tubo ng teeth. kaso since nasanay siya sa small nipples, di niya maxado type yung peristaltic nipple ng First Years bottles.. pero pinipilit namin siya.. hehe.. pag daytime, pinapadede sa kanya ng yaya niya yung big nipples para makasanayan niya din..;P i really recommend Pigeon, hindi mo pagsisisihan..:)

i use Avent and Gerber bottles. yung sa Gerber bottles nga lang pinalitan ko ng Pigeon nipples.  Puro bigay kaya I didn't get to shop for more bottles.

i use pigeon bottles, gift lang din sa akin. pero seldom ko pa pinapainom from bottle using expressed milk kasi direct breastfeed ako most of the time. so far, ok naman ako sa pigeon.
