Avent bottles Lock Rss

Hi is anyone else having problems with leaking avent bottles. no matter how you do them up they seem to leak. Also does anyone have problems with there baby not taking much milk from the avent teats. should i change to pigeon

Mum of Layla-Rose

Hi Amber, I've been using avent bottles and teats since my DS was 3 days old. Sometimes they do leak, I think it mainly happens when I make the milk up when the bottle is still hot from sterilizing. I just open the bottle or pull on the teat and that usually fixes the problem. I also pop an old cloth nappy under his chin while I give him his bottle incase of dribbling, leaks etc. Sometimes I thought he'd been drinking really quickly only to discover half his bottle was down his shirt - lol. Maybe you could try changing teat sizes if he's not taking much - it might be flowing too slowly for your bub, i think they come in newborn, 1 month, 2 months, 3 months and 3 months +. It's just trial and error to find the right bottles and teats, if you're not happy with avent, I'd recommend trying other brands. It can't hurt so good luck !!!

I love my Avent bottles

mind you if i do them up too quickly they do leak,but i just redo them up

did you know the teats have 3 marks around the edge?
for slow , meduim and fast flow?
Probably do but just thought i'd tell ya

i have heard that Pigeon are good though

I have been using Avent with my bub who is now 7 months old, I can't say that I have had any problems with them leaking, my baby is only on size 2 and I think they go up to size 5? He gets the milk fast enough and it doesn't spill out of his mouth. What size teat are you using - maybe you need to go up a size if you have a hungry bub?

Hey Amber
You are not alone, I have found they leak sometimes also. But I love their bottles and So does little one, have used them since she first went on formula and will continue.
Hope you find some luck with them soon!

hey there

i used avent bottles when i had to express, haleigh hated them, so we changed to tommee tippee, found she feeds much better from them, we use purr ortho (something like that) teats,

Hi Amber,
I use the Avent as well and find that they leak when I'm shaking them to mix the formula, I've learnt to hold a tea towel around them when shaking otherwise I end up with milk spots all over the tiles!! I've just recently moved up to the 2 teat with my 6 week old and she's taking alot more than before, I did try changing the teat when she was 4 weeks but it was too early for her and the milk was spilling out everywhere.
Good Luck.
