My husband picked up the Playtex Nurser when he was one of his trips abroad. On the phone he exclaimed “I have got baby an expensive feeding bottle”.
Once he was back he was all exited to try his “new” feeding bottle.
Once he opened the wrapper he cried out that the bottom was missing. Ok now all the surprise broken, playtex bottles come with liners, liners are long plastic containers that can be inserted into the body of the feeding bottle before placing the nipple on top.
This is an anti colic bottle and is very popular in other countries. As the baby drinks milk the plastic collapses, making it impossible for air to enter the bottle. The nipple is very soft and hence they claim that it mimics the breast.
My experience: As my baby was used to Avent bottles she did not like the soft texture of the nipple.
The liners are way too expensive in India. Just some 50 liners cost us 1000 bucks.
They claim that it is travel friendly and that we don’t need to wash the bottle, simply replace the liner. But Hello!!! what about the nipple, I should anyways sterilize it, so might as well sterilize the bottle.
I know people abroad raving about this bottle, but for Indian use I don’t find it that useful or reasonably priced.
I know you must be wondering why I review products that didnt work for me. Its just that we all are so exited to buy the best for our kids and in the process buy the wrong stuff most of the time. So I think it is best to advice people around with both pros and cons, to help everyone save money to invest in something better. I hope you agree..
