Not what I ordered
I ordered this bottle thinking that I was supposed to be getting the Crystal Clear edition. When I opened the box I found that the bottle was blue and NOT the Crystal bottle that was pictured in the description.
I ordered this bottle for my 3month old. She just could never get the natural shape ones right they leaked out the corners of her mouth all over the place! I used the older style ventaire with my boys and loved it, but never really liked this new style of vent until I got this bottle. Many of the reviewers claimed they didn’t have problems with the crystal clears like they did with the regular ones. Since I have been using playtex for a long time I wasn’t ready to give up on them just yet and tried this bottle. Very happy with it, works great and she spits up less with these than with the drop-ins.
These bottles are great. I have 6 of them, I use them every day.Here’s what I like about them: The angle on the neck is very nice, especially when feeding baby in a car seat. They are easy to clean. The tall and skinny design makes them easy to pack a few in a diaper bag. I have used them for 4 months now and have not had to replace any parts. They really are vented. I have a few glass bottles that are nothing fancy and I have to yank them out of my baby’s mouth several times during a feeding because the pressure buildup causes the nipple to collapse and eventually nothing gets through. With the VentAire, air actually gets pulled in through the bottom and pressure never builds. Water never leaks out the holes on the bottom as I initially suspected.Beware: You must screw the bottom piece on tight. Also, you must take every piece apart when you clean the bottles. It is kind of a lot of pieces, but all the bottles out there that allow for air flow, have multiple pieces. It’s just the way of things.Overall, wonderful bottle.
Good basic buy
I like this bottle – the curved design makes it easier for me to hold it while baby is drinking
These bottles are great, the crystal clear ones are a little bigger and fit 6 0z of formula better. Love the design and my baby finds them easy to hold on too. They do just what they say they do and help keep the air out which is great cause my little girl gets tummy issues.
I was looking for a bottle that vented similar to the Dr. Browns bottle, but not with the straw because they leaked all the time. So I thought I would try this Playtex Ventaire bottle and I have loved them! I like that they vent from the back, no straw is necessary, and I haven’t had any problems with this bottle leaking.I read reviews before buying this bottle and I just make sure to screw the bottom piece on tight and so far, no leaking at all. I have been using these bottles now for about 2 months.
