Ok so ive follwed the insturctions to the letter and even watched the Youtube tutorial and yet my bottles are leaking around the teat.

I really do not know what i am doing wrong. Any suggestions?

Many thanks.

Not being funny but if the teats are not the 'natural' ones they will not fit the collar of the natural bottles properly.

I made the mistake of buying the normal Avent teats a few weeks ago and they didn't fit my baby's Natural bottles. I was very peed off. I think it is very sly of Avent!!

Hi. Yes they are are correct teats. Natural style with the petal design.

I really can not decipher what im doing wrong

I used the natural ones with ds and the only thing that I can think of is the teat isn't being pulled through enough you need to pull is quite forcefully so it sits tight around the collar . I think you'd know if that was it though after watching the tutorial .

Once ds was a bit bigger I started putting them in the dishwasher and the heat must have caused the plastic to move because I would need to really screw the top on really tight or it would leak . Do you put them in the dishwasher ?

Sorry grannieannie! Thought I had helped solve the problem.

Not to patronise you but are you pulling the teat through until it clicks into place?

If that isn't the case maybe there is a fault with them?

Hi . No we dont put them in the Dishwasher and yes i am pulling them through until they click into place. Hmmmm. Very odd.

Thank you all for you help .. Maybe a bad batch as you suggest :/

Ok. Avent are AWFUL. My main new parent advice is, don't buy them. Ooooo they give me the rage. The bottles look the same and the teats look the same.......but they are not interchangeable. There is a weird ring thing you have to put on the bottle before screwing on the teat for some of them. If you're anything like me, you probably saw it and couldn't figure out what it was for, so chucked it to the back of the cupboard.

The little feckers will still click into place, by the way, even if you need the ring thing . We've been fooled many a time.

Is the milk coming through during the feed or does it drip out when you invert the bottle?

Mine leaked the first time I used them as I had put the ring thing to one side not knowing what it was for! Not sure what type of avent they were

oh now im very confused... on the Youtube video for the NATURAL bottle not the classic it simply shows bottle, teat, screwtop that the teat goes into and a lid. Thats it, nothing else. ive seen that if you have a classic bottle you need the ring thing but not when your using a natural teat with a natural bottle.

Have i got this completely wrong? really sorry but its been a while since ive had to do the whole bottle thing. my daughter is expressing so i can do the night shift for her once a week.

The milk does come out but it drips out around the edge of the teat also.

Also if i do need this ring thing why did it not come with the Natural bottle?

Why as it all got so blinking complicated? :/ x

I have Natural bottles and teats and don't need anything extra to fit them to eachother. You aren't wrong.

Don't know about the Classic.

Must be a bad batch. I have the natural bottles which only have bottle, teat, screw cap and lid and they've never leaked.

The classic comes with an anti colic ring.
