Playtex Baby VentAire Anti-Colic Baby Bottle Review

playtex ventairThe Playtex Baby VentAire Anti-Colic Baby Bottle is specially designed to help colic babies and provide them with a comfortable time while feeding. This bottle set is ideal for moms who want a bottle that helps reduce gastric problems in their babies and is easy to clean. Sometimes, mothers get annoyed due to the narrow openings of feeding bottles because it is difficult to dump the formula inside as well as to clean them properly. Though this bottle is a little bulky to hold, it has a stylish ergonomic design that makes it easier for moms to feed their babies.

Design 

Unlike other regular feeding bottles, the Playtex feeding bottles have an angled shape, that is, they are curved from the top side. This angled shape makes it easier to feed babies, especially if the baby is in a semi-upright position. The semi-upright position of feeding babies is recommended to prevent ear infections and spitting.

The bottle also has a wide mouth which makes it easier to clean and prepare the formula. It will not leak even if you shake it vigorously to mix the formula.

Also, the markings on the bottle are very easy to read, and the body of the bottle is sturdy. The nipples are also soft enough and have a raised texture to provide a good latch to the baby.

VentAire 

VentAire comes with these bottles which are designed to reduce gas bubbles inside the bottle. This technology makes it easier for babies to switch from breastfeeding to bottle feeding as it allows the milk to flow steadily in a natural way. VentAire is compatible with all types of Playtex nipples. There is a vent at the bottom of the bottle too that keeps the air at the back of the bottle while the baby feeds and prevents the air from mixing with the milk. The VentAire technology reduces spit-up, colic problems, and reflux and prevents air ingestion while feeding.
