    Hi

    I have been hearing recently that Avent bottle have gone down hill, my mum has a few friends with babies and they all have been saying that there avent bottles have started leaking and sometimes even the tops have popped off?! Anyone had this happen?

    I have been advised to buy Dr Browns bottles!

    Hi

    I used Avent bottles for both my girls and after a few months i found that the milk started leaking from round the screw cap,sometimes soaking them!! so i will be looking for another brand this time round i think :(

    Any suggestions? xx

    Dr Brown bottles are good and anti colic, no problems with them, as long as you unscrew the lid to heat them up else the air release system gets milk in it. They are pricey at £5/£6 a bottle, but worth every single penny.

    mine have leaked a few times where the hole is to let air out. they don't do it all the time though which is strange. apart from that they are good - she hasn't been too winding since we started using them.

    you are definetley right about the avent bottles, i had them with my son- 4 yrs ago, & after a few weeks they would leak round the neck & when i made them up & then shook them like you do, it would go everywhere.
    i thought it was me never doing the bottles up properly! thought i was going mad!!

    what do these dr browns bottles look like? when i had my daughter 9 yrs ago i used boots bottles, not sure what to get this time. :D

    Has anyone tried mam bottles. In mother and baby mag these were voted the best alongside avent. I used avent with Jess and will probably use them again. I did find slight leakage occasionally but sometimes I thought it was because the teat wasnt in flush.
    The mam ones appealed to me because of the anti colic valve and because she had mam dummies and they were effective.

    Charlotte wouldnt take Avent teats, so we were advised to get tommy tippee, but mothercare didnt have them, so we got mothercare own bottles and their othodontic teats. they are great cheap and no leaks!

    My SIL had Avent bottles but found they leaked after a while because they had melted slightly!
    She now uses tommee tippee bottles and has nothing but good things to say about them.

    I thought it was me going mad Abis bottles have started leaking either when i shake them or when she is feeding it happened earlier and i had to go and change her, i dont even use them that much as she is mainly breast fed.

    I did buy some george ones when i was in the uk 3 quid for 2 and they are great.
