Review: Playtex Ventaire Bottles

Playtex Ventaire Bottles  

Features as listed on the Playtex Baby website

  • Features breakthrough micro-channel vent technology that vents air at the back of the bottle versus through the nipple, which prevents air from mixing with milk and provides a virtually bubble-free feeding.
  • Unique angled design with micro-channel vents helps prevent ear infections because it promotes semi-upright feeding to minimize fluid build-up in the middle ear.
  • Advanced venting system design to help liquid flow consistently
  • BPA-free and Phthalate-free
  • Slender design makes it easy for baby to hold
  • Available in 6oz and 9oz

Personal Review 

I began using the Playtex bottles alongside the Phillips Avent Natural Feeding Bottle.  When using the Avent brand, my little boy seemed to have problems with gas.  He was having a harder time burping.  Once I switched over to Playtex Ventaire exclusively, he did not have as much gas.  The bottles help him to not swallow as much air because of their design.  

The bottles are easy to clean.  They come apart into 6 pieces: the lid, nipple, retainer ring, bottle, silicone vent, and the bottom vent. That sounds like a lot of pieces for one bottle but I find it easier to make sure the entire inside of the bottle is cleaned and sanitized because it comes apart, even at the bottom.  

I am very happy with these bottles.  They are great for my baby and I would definitely recommend them.  The price is definitely reasonable considering you are saving your baby a great deal of pain and saving yourself the trouble of a colicky baby.  Playtex offers a variety of colors and sizes.
