Pros:Vent helps reduce gas, works with all Avent bottles. Available everywhere.
Cons:A bit hard to clean the ridge at the base of the nipple.
The Bottom Line: I highly recommend these for any Avent bottle users, they are affordable and also allow you to bump up your bottles to the next level as your baby grows.
I had the hardest time switching from breast to bottle because my son would not take the bottle at all. At the advice of several moms, I tried switching the nipple of the bottle. I went with these medium-flow that are supposed to be for 3 months and up. My son was 3 months at the time, and these nipples worked well from the first time he used it.

As a newborn, my son was slightly colicky, so I was always worried about the gas that he would get from nursing from the bottle, so I had to make sure that the nipple/bottle that he used helped with reducing his gas. With this nipple, you can actually hear the air being released through the 'vent' when the baby is nursing. You can really can hear and see that it works! When I don't hear the air, it usually means that I over tightened the seal, so I just adjust the seal.
These nipples are fairly easy to clean. The base of then nipple is much wider than others because Avent bottles are wider, so it's easier to grasp the nipples while you're scrubbing them inside and out. The only downside to cleaning is that sometimes it is hard to clean the thin ridge that goes around the edge of the nipple seal. I've had to buy the Avent brush (you can also use a toothbrush) to be able to clean this, which is fine by me.
To summarize, I love that all the Avent products are interchangeable. They allow you to customize the bottle for your babies stage, which is great because you don't have to buy a ton of new stuff.
