A unique skirt system with a one way air valve at its base flexes to allow air into the bottle, replacing the milk at your baby's own sucking rhythm and eliminating the vacuum. Your baby can feed continuously, as at the breast without having to "come up for air". The whistling sound you hear is your guarantee that the air is being released into the bottle - NOT into the milk or your baby's tummy. It's the air babies swallow during feeding that can cause the discomfort, crying and fussing associated with colic.
The AVENT teats soft wide shape encourages your baby to open the mouth wide when feeding and to literally "latch on" to the teat. He or she can then suckle, using similar movements of tongue and jaw as when breastfeeding. That's why it's easier to combine breast and bottle feeding with AVENT.
When choosing the right teat for your baby please remember that age indications on packaging 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 and may show signs of tiredness or frustration during feeding.
AVENT Teats are color coded to help you find the correct flow rates.
Variable - One slot. With a slot instead of holes. Recommended for babies 3 months and older.
*By turning the bottle and aligning the position marker on the side of the teat with the baby's nose you can vary the flow to suit your babies needs. It is generally faster at the beginning and slower towards the end (align marker I for slower flow, II for medium and III for fast flow).

New design is a dud!
I've been using the avent range since I finished breastfeeding when my baby was approx 6 months old - as other reviewers have stated you need to start on the lowest teat size as the flow is just too big. My son finally moved into the size 3 teat in the old style had no trouble it was perfect and easy to use etc. Now with the new design it leaks and has a huge overflow.
The main downfall is the new slot markings that have replaced the numbers on the teats! Now I can't tell which are the old teats that need updating from size 2 to 3? My sister has a 2 month old on number 1 and a 15 month old on a 3 - with the new teats she can't tell which is which size and what size to upgrade them too
It's a big flaw & I'm considering ditching avent to find another brand bottle and teat!

I bought this product for my 5 month old baby. The flow is way too fast for standard formula. My daughter screamed when using this. The packaging doesn't say anything about being designed for thickened formula. Waste of money!!!!

This is a poor product
Very disappointed. Flow was way too fast even on the slowest flow setting. I'm using with thickened formula and still too fast. Makes a huge mess. Wish I could get my money back.
