Most Helpful Reviews on Playtex Ventaire Advanced Nursers.

  • 5.0 out of 5 stars(5/5) – 8/24/2001 – I switched to the VentAire bottles because my one-month old son was gulping too much air with the regular Gerber bottles and 3-hole nipples and I DID NOT want to use the drop-in liner system. The amount of air that is swallowed is CONSIDERABLY less therefore causing alot less discomfort during and after a feeding…. I also like how both ends of the bottle come off for better cleaning!

  • 3.0 out of 5 stars(3/5) – 12/8/2001 – … They have worked okay for us, but I have found that the vent in the bottom becomes clogged quite easily. Also, I always notice air coming in through the nipple and getting bubbles in the formula, which these bottles are supposed to prevent…. Also, using a traditional bottle warmer is ineffective with these bottles, because heat cannot travel up through the bottom of the bottle to heat the formula… (read more and buy it at Amazon.com)
  • 5.0 out of 5 stars(5/5) – 11/18/2009 – … These bottles made it so that with few air bubbles he didn’t get that much gas so he didn’t spit up that much!! We tried everything from cheapest bottle to most expensive and I almost gave up until I saw these. I love them!! THEY WORK WONDERS!!!! (read more and buy it at Diapers.com)
  • 1.0 out of 5 stars(1/5) – 9/13/2011 – …  When I saw Playtex does not have much compartment like other bottles, I got one. To my disappointment Playtex Ventair does not work at all! 1. It does not reduce the bubbles as you can clearly see bubbles through. 2. It does not help with gas, colic or spit up at all…. (read more and buy it at Diapers.com)
  • 4.0 out of 5 stars(4/5) – 4/21/2010 – In response to some of the other reviews on these bottles….  1) Numbers rubbing off…. 2) Leaking…. 3) Nipple flow…. I really like these bottles they do take some thought to use them but I don’t have a spit up or gassy baby so they are worth it to me! (read more and buy it at Babiesrus.com)
