Philips Avent is one of the most widely used and popular brands for baby bottles, breast and baby feeding accessories. Not only is Philips AVENT one of the most widely used brands appreciated by parents, it is one of the top baby brands that are recommended by doctors aswell (after much research, I noticed this always doesn’t always come hand in hand with other brands).
Philips Avent helps you by offering you a range of suitable essentials for all three ways of feeding your baby, where you are doing any or all of the follwoing:
1) Breastfeeding or
2) Formula Feeding or
3) Mix Feeding
Personally, they are my favorite choice when it comes to baby bottles, feeding, warming bottles and sterilizing bottles – I literally have the whole range! I’ve used Avent bottles throughout both of my pregnancies and feel that Philips Avent products move with the time and technology (their products are never outdated).
For instance, with my last pregnancy, I switched to the new range of glass Avent bottles as I wanted to have the safest and healthiest bottles for my baby with no BPA or any unnatural materials. In a move to go more organic and 100% natural, my husband also purchased a baby bottle mixer which is an automatic formula dispensing machine which too, was BPA free.
By using the highest quality products by Philips AVENT, you not only ensure the safety and hygiene of your baby, but their products are very easy to use, compared to other brands. Here are just some of the products that I personally recommend from the Philips Avent range.
Best Philips Avent Products
If you are breastfeeding your baby or using formula, you can use a baby bottle warmer in both cases! Philips Avent Fast Bottle Warmer (Click Here to Purchase) or Premium Model (Click Here to Purchase) are highly recommended by Moms to heat up breast and formula milk, defrost stored breast milk and heat up baby food jars also.
Apart from the obvious health concern of using a microwave to heat up your baby’s milk, using either of these bottle warmers saves you from that ‘hotspot’ that is created when using a microwave. Again for the fastest and safest way to warm up a baby bottle, buy a bottle warmer.
Note: If you were looking for the Philips Avent Express food and bottle warmer, it has been discontinued as of 2016.
Whether your thinking you need one or not, dont’ even question it – a baby bottle sterilizer is a must for all parents; using one is the most healthy way to clean your baby bottles to ensure there is no nasty germs left on them. You might not know this but Philips Avent was the first company which introduced the electric steam sterilizers to the market and since then, they are providing us with the highest quality and safest breastfeeding and bottle feeding products.
Sterilization of your baby’s feeding essentials is a must thing and Philips Avent helps you out with three excellent products:
The 3-in-1 steam sterilizer can hold up to 6 bottles and feeding essentials at a time and the steam regulation kills pretty much all germs that exist. Another great product is 4-in-1 electric steam sterilizer that comes with a dishwasher basket. The budget-friendly microwave steam sterilizer can be used as a portable sterilizer for traveling as all it requires is a microwave.
If you are a hygiene geek like me, Philips Avent feeding bottles will probably be the best thing you will find. Deciding which baby bottle to buy through the hundreds of baby bottle brands that exist is not an easy task! I prefer Philips Avent over all brands primarily because their infant bottles are the healthiest and safest in my eyes. Philips Avent offers BPA free products which I find is a must for most health conscious parents.
The range of Classic Feeding Bottles have slow flow nipples which are clinically proven to reduce colic and discomfort for your bub. Both the range of Natural & Natural Glass Feeding Bottles have wide breast-shaped nipples which promote your baby to latch-on naturally, similar to your breast.
Again these bottles are 100% safe to use with the bottle warmers and sterilizers above. Philips Avent bottles set themselves apart for two reasons; 1) for being the best bottles for colic and 2) they are one of the only brands that your baby is easily adaptable with (i.e your baby can easily go from breastfeed to feeding bottle to breastfeed again).
Newborn babies usually have air problems which is created because of the air stored in bottles. Philips Avent was the first brand introduce colic reducing properties in a infant bottles, they are made with a twin valve to ensure you baby swallows as little air as possible.
When it comes to Philips Avent breastfeeding products, they are #1 brand! Manual breastfeeding pumps were first launched in the baby industry by Philips Avent and now they are made by many other famous brands as well.
Needless to say, all breast pumps by Philips Avent are BPA free, including three breast pumps to choose from:
Philips Avent Manual Breast Pump is an awesome product for breastfeeding mommies. It helps in stimulating milk flow and can be used with both classic and natural infant bottles. It is easy to position and hold on your breast because it is lightweight and compact.
The Philips Avent Single Electric Breast Pump runs on power when at home and on batteries when it’s needed on the go. Unlike many other electric pumps, you don’t need to position yourself in some special style to stimulate your milk flow. You just sit in your normal and easy position and let this electric breast pump do its work. The Philips Avent Double Electric Breast Pump can save you a lot of time if you are a working woman. This double pump three settings low, medium and high and you can adjust it as per your requirements.

Alternatively, I absolutely love using Storage Bags (Click Here to Purchase). They are available BPA free double zipped, pre sterilized and secure and are perfect for traveling.
Philips Avent disposable breast pads are extra thin, so they won’t be prominent and give you an odd feeling. I believe these are the best nursing pads as they are extra absorbent and have multi layers.
