Rated 4 out of 5 by ncgirlygirl At first: They were perfect
In the beginning I loved loved loved these bottles. They where perfect. They go right on the pump and you can just pump right into them, plus the tops just screw on and you can store them in the freezer.
I've had them about 2months now:
Plastic is Thin: If the plastic was made out of the same material as the actual phillis avent bottles they would be perfect. The plastic is very thin, easy to bend.
Because the plastic is thin, the bottles have cracked which of course caused the milk to leak.
I wish it had a fill line : At times I would have milk filled up and when I screw the top on it, then milk would spill because I had it filled to much.
The bottles are stackable, even when the top is on, you can still stack the bottles on top of each other.
Over all, it's a good item and I would recommend it. I'm actually going to order more. Just be aware that the plastic is thin, and they make crack.
Rated 5 out of 5 by KJS2011 Purchased when I realized that I needed more bottles to store milk, and came across these. They are very nice for when you're sick of cleaning out bottles, are relatively leak proof, and stack so they take up less room. These also make shaking the milk up easier to put into bottles then with actual bottles. Make sure that you do not close them too tightly though, otherwise they are very hard to get open, and you end up getting milk everywhere. The only downside is they are not compatable with medela pumps, just avent pumps, but I just use mis-matched bottles that have lost their lids and put the milk into the containers afterwards. Once i'm done nursing I plan to keep these around as storage containers for toddler food. Overall a very good purchase.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Mommy02547 I LOVE these! I love how easy they are to attach to my breast pump. My milk goes right into them, I put the storage top on, write the date on the outside and into the freezer they go! They are dishwasher safe. I am about to go buy some more of these as soon as all of the ones I have are being used.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Melrah1 Great!!
I really like that I can reuse these and they don't leak!
Rated 5 out of 5 by cutechica Nice product
I love these because you can connect them to your pump then use the connector to go straight to feeding the baby or save in the fridge or freezer.You can also write on them.Great product.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Turtles Great Product
These little cups are great for storing the milk. After reading the reviews I was a bit nervous about leaking, but I haven't had any trouble. I screw the cap on backwards a bit and then forwards. Then I slightly tip it to check for leaks. I don't use them in the freezer, only to transport fresh milk to the sitter each day. Much easier than the baggies that I always seemed to knock over. I also don't use them in the dishwasher because of the reviews I read previously. Highly recommend these for milk storage.
Rated 5 out of 5 by treeswift incredible even when using for other things
I used these while I was pumping milk and I really loved them then, but they are also very useful for things like storing nuts and bolts in the garage, holding dry snack items for the kids when we are going to go out, they are great for mixing pudding and pouring it into them for a nice afternoon snack for the kids. My children are now 1 and 3 years old and I still get a lot of use out of these. The fact that they stack so well is also a big plus because it reduces the amount of fridge space I am using. We can also buy things in bulk like the large containers of yogurt and split it up into nice snack sizes for the kids. The kids can even use them to stack for learning purposes. My children just recently started drinking from open cups and these work really well to measure out just a small amount of water for them to learn with. I definitely recommend buying these.
Rated 4 out of 5 by BrandNewMommyToBabyGirl Good for storage
These cups are great for storage. They really help with not "dirtying" your bottles. They also convert into bottles which is a great help!
Rated 3 out of 5 by Momsknowbest1 Useful storage; design needs improvement
This is good for storage of milk that you want to thaw and easily use as a bottle without transfer since it works well with their bottle adapters. However, the lids don't thread easily and you have to really be careful that they are lined up properly. Also, like many other Avent products, the numbers showing the measurements are so hard to read. They are clear so you have to really look at them close to read them. I've had to stop pumping to look at the side of the container to see how much I'd pumped until I finally used a marker to mark them myself. It doesn't stop me from recommending these because they are useful but it just is common sense that if a container has a label on it...make it easy to read.
Rated 5 out of 5 by srlash Good storage
Great product for storing milk. Fits the philips avent pump perfectly. We like it.
Rated 4 out of 5 by MamaToOne2010 Avent customer service is awesome!
So i havn't got to use these yet as the baby aint here yet, but i did have one issue as soon as i took these out of the box. So what happened was that one of the cups bottom got smushed, it looks like when the packaging got closed, it closed it on the bottom. So I called the number on the box and they checked for any seperate cups in stock and they didnt so they are sending me a 2nd set free of charge! So I recommend checking things as soon as you get them, it was quick and painless to get the 2nd set. Avent is deffinitely a good company. And after im done with these im going to switch to the bags since i hear storing in bags is more preferable.
Rated 1 out of 5 by TinaTina No good
I bought this product when I was still pregnant cause I want to go avent all the way. The containers are fat and when I froze my milk in the freezer I think it couldn't handle one month of deep freezing. II thawed my milk and noticed there was a crack on the edge. It wasn't reusable at least causei just tossed it out after. Just buy the plastic bags for breastmilk. That's more practical. You can save space in your freezer too.
Rated 1 out of 5 by TamaraFromPA Not ideal
The biggest drawback is that the screw tops do not always stay in place due to not having enough rivets. This can cause the adaptor to come off during pumping and feeding. The lid also separates when freezing. The container was not comfortable to hold in feeding. I stopped using them after a few months and switched to bags which are cheaper and easier.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Chris1150gs Great storage for parents on the go.
The only problem I have with these is very few places carry them anymore. They are water and air tight and made out of thinner plastic so they warm easily also.
Rated 1 out of 5 by 1badtopher WARNING!!!! Do not use this product for freezing milk!!!
The internally tapped threads on the lid make it nearly impossible to open, due to the vacuum created by freezing and thawing. So far 10 out of 10 I have thawed required me to break the lid to get them open.
Rated 5 out of 5 by lr179904 Overall a good product. I've never froze in these containers though, so I can't comment on that. I use these to pump into at work. They hold 6oz however if you fill them completely to the 6oz line and then screw the lid on some milk may spill out. (the lids fit inside the container) But other than that I love them!

I had received a package of these at my baby shower and then started using bags for storing milk until my sleep-deprized brain figured out that I was spending $10 every two weeks on bags when I could spend a little more than that and have REUSABLE containers that wouldn't produce so much waste! I have 40 containers total that I rotate through to store my milk and I don't have any complaints. You do have to take your time and not rush to screw the lids on but I'm usually being careful not to spill the milk anyhow so its not a big deal. The only down side I have found is that if one falls out of the freezer, the lid will crack - but the cup part is still good! And I use them more than three times - I read on someone's review about only using them three times before having to throw them away - not sure why but they definitely stand up.
Rated 3 out of 5 by allyc these are handy
The only complaint I have is that the container does not seal tight therefore milk can leak if container is tipped or is too full. Otherwise these are very handy, easy storage, easy to clean etc.
