We were invited to Philips AVENT’s Baby Shower to celebrate the launch of their latest milk bottle design and breast pump. It was a very rainy evening but nothing could dampen the mood at the little party we were at!
We were warmly greeted (with canapés too!) and the kids had a play area, complete with a professional baby sitter to take care of them while I listened to the concise and interesting evolution of milk bottles and breast pumps.
We were also shown how Avent has progressed over the years, delivering a number of industry firsts – 1st breast pump to imitate babies’ suckling action, 1st feeding bottle with clinically proven anti-colic properties, 1st single handed breast pump among many other achievements!
The first redesign in 29 years, this new range of milk bottles, breast pumps and accessories aims to make it even easier to move between breast and bottle feeding. The new Philips AVENT Natural bottles feature a wide breast-shaped teat that promotes natural latch on similar to the breast, preventing nipple and teat confusion.
I particularly liked how the informative talk was peppered with interesting bits of information about how the ‘feeding mechanism’ has evolved since ancient times, many of those items hardly resembling what we know to be a milk bottle today! And the Quiz time was quite a highlight as children as well as hubbies were invited to participate and my little girl was elated to get a cute insulated lunch bag as a prize for answering a question correctly 🙂
After the talk we could go round to view the samples of the improved pump and bottles. Not only has the teat of the bottle been redesigned, the shape of the milk bottle itself has also been improved to make it easier to handle for little hands. The Comfort breast pump features soft silicone petals which gently massages the breast to stimulate the let-down reflex. Of course we couldn’t have a go at expressing milk during the party, but do watch for my upcoming review of this fabulous pump soon.
