  • I really didn't think so. I had an Avent pump, but quickly abandoned it. I had some Avent sippy attachments to offer my kids water, and they leaked. My kids also didn't like their pacifiers. I did like their washable breast pads though.

  • I LOVE the bottles!! You could even buy handles for them when the baby is learning to hold it them self!

  • I LOVE my avent pump. I have had it for almost 5 years now and it has never done me wrong. I can't speak of teh other products as I use many brands for many items we use.

  • i have some avent bottles, they have a tendency to leak sometimes. I like the pump that they came with.
    there are lots of bottles out now that are BPA free that are a lot cheaper.

  • Avent pacifiers are the only ones that stay in my son's mouth. Never tried the bottles. But I love their pacifiers.

  • They actually sent me a sample of an Avent bottle in the mail, and it looked really nice. But when I tried to use it for the first time, It leaked ALL OVER my son, and I had no idea....when we got where we were going, he was completely soaked and so was the carseat. And he wasn't even eating out of it. I had it sitting upright in his carseat with him, and it hadn't fallen over or anything. And he was only 2 months old so I know he didn't pick it up and dump it out. I had the lid on tightly and correctly too by the way. We tried it twice and it leaked both times. So, no I wouldn't recommend that brand at all. I love the Playtex drop-ins. I've used them with both my boys and had no problems. And you can squeeze all the air out of the bottles before you feed them too, which is pretty cool.
