I have to say, as far as anti colic bottle go, these were the worst ones I tried. I suppose all babies are different, and different things will work for each baby, but these did nothing for mine.
Not only were they very fiddly and awkward bottles to use, it was a pain remembering to squeeze the bottom every few seconds while baby was feeding, and it took ages to warm them up. I always found the solid bit on the bottle would warm up ages before the milk, but you couldnt take it off to heat the milk as there was a hole in the bottom of the bottle.
They were a pain if you needed to make a bottle up quickly, they were a pain to clean.... I really did just fin them annoying, and my daughter still suffered from colic while she was suing the bottles, so for me they were no good.
Im sorry I dont agree with the other reviews. We used these bottles when our 1st son had stomach problems (including cohlic) and the results were fantastic. We found that as soon as we switched to the Natural Flow bottles the troubles stopped overnight. We didnt even have to wind him. We have used them again for our 2nd son and we have not once had cohlic or wind related problems. Yes they leak after a while, and yes they are fiddly but its a small price. I cant recommend them highly enough, definately worth a try. (go for the wide neck ones though, the tall ones are a nightmare to fill).

i bought these anti colic bottles after reading an article about them, that they are suppose to reduce colic. After using these bottles for two weeks my son became so ill it made him get colic. I was using them from birth i thought at first it was the formula he wasnt suited to so my midwife told me to change the formula, he was just as bad in the end he was refusing feeds.My midwife then asked me what bottles i was using, when i told her she hadnt even heard of the make and suggested i changed the bottles, which i did to the avent bottles. My son took all the formula straight away no messing and was so much better after only a few days.I would not reccomend these bottles i even spoke to the company itself and they were not helpful at all
Well you know how it is - baby gets colic and you'll try anything that says anti colic. Well trust me don't bother!!! I bought these bottles on the recommendation of my mother who had listed to a interview on radio about how wonderful these bottles were at reducing colic, they may well be good but you have to get past the making them up stage to use them. These bottles consist of a air vent system which fits into the bottle. This supposedly allows trapped air to escape whilst your baby is feeding, instead of baby swallowing it. But you cannot make up feeds in the bottle because you can't shake them (don't allow milk to get into air vent) You can't heat the bottle with the air vent in because it causes the bottle to leak. You cannot use the bottle wothout the air vent because it causes the bottle to leak. An absolute nightmare. If like me you have a colicky baby - don't bother with these the crying is a hassle without the bottle makihng being that too!!!!
