Product Description

Philips AVENT Variable Flow Teats

The Philips AVENT Variable Flow Teat has a slot cut that provides an extra-fast flow and also accommodates thicker liquids. The flow rate can be varied by turning the bottle to align the I, II or III markings on the teat with the baby's nose. The Variable Flow Teat is suitable for babies aged 3 months and upwards.

No 1 recommended

Philips AVENT teats make it easier to feed your baby, whether entirely by bottle or a combination of breast and bottle. The naturally shaped silicone teat allows your baby to control milk flow as it would when breastfeeding. This allows your baby to suckle almost as at the breast. As your baby feeds, the unique skirt on the AVENT teat flexes to allow air into the bottle, rather than baby’s tummy, preventing colic. The gentle whistling sound and watch the air bubbles burst on the surface of the milk. That's your guarantee that the air is being released into the bottle--not into your baby's tummy.

Choosing the right teat for your baby

The naturally shaped teat allows baby to control milk flow as when breastfeeding, making it easy to combine breast and bottle.

Philips AVENT Classic teats are designed to fit all bottles in the AVENT Classic range (if you have AVENT Natural bottles, these are compatible with teats in the Natural range). The AVENT Classic teats are interchangeable, and available in different flow rates--newborn, slow, medium, fast and variable flow. Once baby moves up to the next teat stage, the old teat can simply be replaced with the new.

Remember that age indications are approximate, as babies develop at different rates. You will know when your baby is ready to move onto a faster flow rate because he or she will try to suck harder to get the milk more quickly. Baby may also show signs of tiredness or frustration during feeding.

Philips AVENT Feeding Bottles

The Philips AVENT Classic Feeding Bottle is designed to work with your baby's natural feeding rhythm. Philips AVENT bottles are clinically proven to reduce painful colic and discomfort after feeding.

Significantly reduces fussing

Unsettled and irritable behaviour, known as fussing, is by far the most commonly known crying behaviour in babies, but clinical studies show that the Philips AVENT Classic bottle significantly reduces fussing and colic. A randomised clinical trial was carried out to see whether infant feeding bottle design affects infant behaviour. The Philips AVENT bottle was shown to significantly reduce fussing by approximately 28 minutes a day as compared to the comparator bottle. This was especially true during night-time.

Fussing: A clinical study showed that at two weeks of age, babies showed less fussing than babies fed with another leading bottle.

Colic: A clinical study showed that at two weeks of age babies fed with a Philips AVENT bottle showed a trend to less colic than babies fed with a conventional bottle.

AVENT teats allow air into the bottle, preventing any vacuum build-up
AVENT baby bottles come in a range of sizes.
Anti-colic system

Feeding bottles, whether they are angled or straight, need air inside the bottle to replace the milk your baby takes. When your baby drinks, a vacuum is formed in the bottle causing the teat to collapse, restricting milk flow. When unable to receive milk, a frustrated baby's natural reaction is to suck more vigorously, which in turn increases the amount of air swallowed. Most bottles need air to flow in through the hole in the tip of the teat to remove the vacuum, interrupting the flow and rhythm of sucking.

The two-piece anti-colic system on the Philips AVENT Feeding Bottle contains a ring that must be fitted between the teat and the bottle for extra performance.

Bottles are BPA-free and interchangeable with other AVENT products

Philips AVENT feeding bottles are 100% Bisphenol-A (BPA) free. Philips AVENT products have also been designed to be compatible with one another and are easily interchangeable, aiding the transition from newborn to toddler. Bottles and teats can be screwed on to or used with breast pumps, breast milk storage containers, magic cups, training cups and drinking spouts.

Superior quality

All Philips AVENT products are superior quality and designed with you and your baby's needs in mind. Through extensive research and clinical trials, Philips AVENT products work together effectively to promote baby's wellbeing and give you the flexibility to care for a growing baby.

Philips AVENT Tips for Bottle Feeding

  • Clean and sterilise all feeding parts before each use
  • Do not use abrasive cleaning agents or anti-bacterial cleaners with bottles and teats
  • Wash your hands thoroughly and ensure surfaces are clean before handling sterilized components
  • For inspection of the teat, pull it in each direction
  • Place the teat in boiling water for 5 minutes before first use to ensure hygiene
  • Throw away bottle and teats at the first sight of damage, weakness or scratching
  • Replace teats and spouts after 3 months use
  • Do not warm milk in a microwave as this may cause uneven heating and could scald your baby
  • Always check the milk temperature before feeding
  • Make sure that the bottles are not over-tightened
  • Do not allow your baby to play with small parts or run/walk while feeding

These aren't much cheaper than in the shops but any saving is a saving when you have kids.

They're from 3 months and our son has just turned 3 months (14 weeks). We use these for a couple of the feeds but not all as while he is getting to the end of the size 2 teats, I think these are just a little bit big for him at this stage - some of his milk overspills which he no lnger does on the size 2 teats.

In any case, these will be a necessity in the near future so why not get the genuine Avent product for a great price.

My baby was born 10 weeks premature and as a result of that suffers from terrible reflux and has to have thickener added to his milk called thick and easy. We struggeled to find a teat that he didn't have to work soo hard to get the milk (all holes too small) or one that didn't poor it down his neck (holes too big) the variflow is perfect for his ticker milk and he can now take it with ease without choking on it. This is what ut was designed for, to use with milk that has to be thickened rather than normal milk. Brilliant for that purpose!!!!

I've had 2 children and wouldn't have used anything other than this brand for feeding my babies. I trust this brand 100% and would definately recommend it to anyone. Colic is a real concern for parents and i've never had a problem, i believe it's because i used a trusted brand. The person who gave them 1 star and said the teats/bottles leak are screwing the tops to the bottles too tightly!... I know because i used to have exactly the same problem,(until a friend of mine pointed out what was happening).
Don't be put off by other peoples mistakes and harsh judgements!

My wife and I bought the medium flow teats Philips AVENT SCF633/27 Medium Flow Teat (3 Months+, 2-Pack) to try and get enough flow through for use with Aptamil Comfort milk. The thicker milk does not flow very easily through the number 1 and number 2 teats, but the 3 hole teats were fine up to the age of 4 months, at which point he can could easily cope with a bit more flow.

We've since switched to these teats and our little boy is happily guzzling down 8 or 9ozs without spilling a drop. Although the teat does have a habit of closing in on itself because I think he sucks a bit too much - probably something to do with the thicker fluid needing more sucking power! The feeds now take around 10 minutes, which suits our little one just fine.

So if you use Aptamil Comfort - these are spot on.

I am a big fan of avent bottles. This is the first time i have had to replace teats after two and a half years and two children. I only had to buy these because my two year old chewed through the old one but otherwise they last and last and even when stored and brought back out of retirement they still are good for use.

I ordered these twice and they were never the right ones! They are advertised as classic teats, but they're not classic, they're 'Classic +', which do not fit a classic bottle at all. I emailed amazon a complaint and never heard back

We have been using this type of teat for over a year now and just bought some extra for convienence.

The teat is marketed as 'variable flow' teat because the amount of flow depends on the position you put it into the mouth.
(The opening changes shape depending on from which side the teat is pressed together by the mouth)
But to be honest, we couldn't care less!
The reason we like this teats is because instead of several tiny holes (like the Avent 1,2,3 abd 4 teat) the 'variable flow' has a 'slot' that allows fluids that are somewhat thicker than just milk to be used without any problem.

A nice addition to the great Avent line-up.
But I would only recommend it from 6 months or so, not the suggested 3 months. (With 3 months our daughter was still using no 2 teat, with the #3 or #4 she would drink much too fast, I imagine that with the variable flow teat she would have been drowning in the big milk flow)

The I, II and III markings on the teat are not always easy to see, but that's just inherent to the product. The numbers on the 1, 2, 3, and 4 teats are also not easy to see. There's just no way to make very clear markings on a transparant silicone product that remain easy to see under all circumstances. Yes, it's inconvenient, but we can't really blame that on the product or manufacturer.
Theoretically you could practice year fingertips to feel the I, II, III because they are clearly raised. But for me that's really no satisfactory way to find out the position of the teat.

When they do find a solution for a more clear indication of the I, II, II position I'll give 5 stars, for now it's a 4 star rating.

(Don't mind my English, I'm just a simple Dutchman)
