When we found out we were expecting we were excited, scared and nervous. Any family expecting a new member will share some of those same feelings!
If you have been following my Pregnancy Journey posts or if you have been around long enough to hear me talk about my two daughters you may know that my last “baby” was over 8 years ago as Hailee tuned 8 this past February! This means I have absolutely nothing for a baby anymore as it has long been donated/sold to other moms. The excitement of getting prepared for a new baby can be overwhelming especially for new moms who may not have the experience with certain baby products or brands. Luckily for me I have 2x the experience (3 if you count my nephew), although some things have changed in the last 8 years (prices, look, products) I know what brands worked well for my girls!
As a mother of two who didn’t breastfeed either of my girls (I bottle fed them), I tried many brands, many types of bottles and through trial and error fell in love with Philips AVENT for my girls. I plan on bottle feeding our new baby and the first brand that popped into my mind when thinking of the bottles we will need to purchase was Philips AVENT.
Whether you are strictly bottle feeding or breast-feeding having a great bottle system is key. Breastfeeding moms may need to leave their child in the care of someone or give dad the opportunity to feed and bond with the new baby is where having a great bottle system comes in handy.

I was lucky enough to be accepted into the Canadian Avent Moms and was sent the Philips AVENT Natural Essentials Set. I have already tested out the sterilizer and love how easy it is to use, this is going to come in handy with a new baby as time-management is key. I never used soothers/pacifiers with either of my girls only because they never really needed one as they were quite content but having these two on hand makes me feel at ease just in case our newest addition isn’t as content as my other two were. I really love that this set comes with a bottle brush, one can never have too many (as I recall having hoards with the girls). I love using brushes to get the bottles and nipples super clean before sterilizing.
The Philips AVENT Natural Essentials Set provides the help parents need for safe, easy feeding and sterilizing. This set includes two 4-ounce and two 9-ounce BPA-free bottles featuring a clinically proven anti-colic valve within the nipple that reduces colic for less air in baby’s tummy and a more comfortable feeding experience. The set also includes an express microwave sterilizer which cleans bottles in just two minutes. Finally it includes two newborn silicone Soothie pacifiers to calm newborns while respecting the shape of their growing mouths and a rounded-head bottle brush that helps clean every inch of baby’s feeding supplies.
All pieces in this set are BPA-free, and the bottles and nipples are interchangeable with other Natural Philips AVENT bottles or nipples.
