I’m tired of AVENT bottles especially as the new BPA-free range of PC (polycarbonate) bottles are EXPENSIVE and reported to LEAK. Also, I’m kind of wary about using PC bottles even if they are labelled ‘BPA-free’.
MAM Anti-colic ultivent bottle
During my last trip back to KL, I bought two 9 oz MAM bottles on sale for only RM50 (one retails for about RM35).
The boy rejected the MAM bottle so I’m keeping them for the new baby.
The MAM bottle sounds good as you can take apart the bottle (4 detachable parts including the bottom) and wash the entire bottle clean.
I hear that MAM bottles fit into AVENT’s Isis Manual Pump because this breast pump works really well for me.
UPDATE: I tried the MAM bottle on my AVENT breast pump – unfortunately, they do not fit. Guess it only works on certain models?
However, I had a terrible experience with leaks with MAM’s Smart Sippy Cup thus I’m not that confident in the MAM bottle…
DR. BROWN’S ANTI-COLIC WIDE NECK PP BOTTLE
Browsing the supermarket here, I stumbled upon Dr Brown’s 8 oz wideneck polypropolene (PP) bottle, which is BPA-free since it’s not made with polycarbonate (PC).
The salesgirl told me that it’s selling really well here and I can get each for about RMB70 (versus RM45.90 in Malaysian online baby stores). Nipple packs of 3 sell for about RMB40.
+ I like the concept behind the Doctor Brown bottle because it prevents gas, spitting up and colic due to its special vent system (although there are 4 detachable parts to clean).
+ A tiny, thin brush is supplied for pipe cleaning…
+ I also like the contoured shape of the bottle, which makes it easy for baby to grip while self-feeding.
I’m hoping that my tot will WANT the baby’s new bottles and then, I’ll be rid of AVENT bottles forever!!!
- The bottle is a clear plastic, unlike MAM bottles which come in different colours.
The thing is – has anyone tried Doctor Brown’s wideneck bottle with an AVENT pump? If it fits into the pump nicely, I’m going to grab some Doctor Brown bottles for baby!!!
Will you please let me know? A million thanks in advance…
