The arrival of a baby brings joy and excitement to new parents' lives and thats why Avent wants to you to share the highlights of your birth story. Share your story below and be entered to win a $500 Visa Gift Card.

Those first few weeks of infancy can mean the onset of colic and fussing in babies following bottle feeding. Persistent crying from an unsettled, uncomfortable fussing baby can deprive both mother and baby of much needed sleep and rest.

Avent's BPA Free Natural Feeding Bottles are clinically proven to reduce colic* and to reduce fussing especially at night time**.

As your baby feeds, the unique skirt on the AVENT nipple flexes to allow air into the bottle, preventing any vacuum build-up. Listen for the gentle whistling sound and watch the air bubbles move from the nipple and into the bottle - not into the baby's tummy.


* At 2 weeks of age babies fed with an AVENT bottle showed a trend to less colic than babies fed with a conventional bottle.
** At 2 weeks of age babies fed with an AVENT bottle showed a trend to less fussing than babies fed with another leading bottle.
