I’m blessed to have been able to breastfeed both my babies exclusively now, but with Keira I was able to express breastmilk with my pump and feed her via bottle whenever necessary. When I was shopping for bottles to use with her I had wanted to find some glass bottles to no avail. I just liked the idea that the glass was less likely to contain toxic chemicals than the plastic ones. Things change so often that I wanted to be as safe as possible.
I was pretty excited to be sent a Philips AVENT Natural Bottle in Glass. It might be hard to imagine anyone getting excited over a bottle, but I was. It was a total, oh wow, I really needed this moment!
The Philips AVENT Natural Bottle makes it easier to combine bottle and breastfeeding, and is now the #1 bottle brand in Canada. The Glass version is now available as of this year and is made with premium borosilicate type 1 glass material (pharmaceutical grade), which is thermal shock and heat resistant.
The bottles feature an advance anti-colic system with innovative twin-valve design and a wide ‘breast-like’ shape which is what makes it easier for breastfed babies to latch on. Like other Avent bottles used with Keira, the nipple included features comfort petals to increase softness and flexibility without collapse. It is also shaped ergonomically so that it is easy to hold in any direction, even by baby!
It is available in both 4 oz and 8 oz size.
To go with the Philips AVENT Natural Bottle in Glass you will want the Philips AVENT Fast Bottle Warmer which ensures gentle and even warming as fast as 3 minutes and even includes a handy defrost setting all of which makes it perfect for warming breastmilk from either the fridge or the freezer. I wish I had this item with Keira too! We always stuck a bag in hot water to get it warmed up but this often took ages and resulted in barely lukewarm milk and sometimes caused a strange consistency.
The Fast Bottle Warmer actually helps to preserve the quality of frozen breast milk as it warms it up evenly and safely. It’s super easy to operate too with a quick twist of a knob to turn it on and then simply select the right setting.
