I've been using Dr. Brown's bottles for my newborn daughter and they are good. Since I've never used a 'simple' bottle so i don't know if these bottles really prevent air from going into a baby's mouth, but I can attest to the fact that my daughter didn't have many spit ups or much burping so maybe there is something to these advanced bottles and their claim to control air flow.
The reason I like Avent bottles is that they have lesser parts and are much more easy to assemble compared t Dr. Brown's. The Dr. Brown ones have bottle, nipple and two piece air controller. When we go out and want to feed our daughter, we first have to clean our hands with sanitizer becasue opening the the Dr. Brown bottle to mix water and formula means touching the big two-piece controller. It's not deal breaking, but it is a tad cumbersome.
Now the Avent bottles have a single piece controlelr and it's a ring that stays attached to the nipple. So when making a bottle for my daughter, I don't have to touch any internal pieces and manage multiple parts carefully to put together a clean, non-infected bottle.
Cleaning hands everytime, even if you have been going around doing normal stuff #driving, putting on your jacket etc.#, and managing multiple parts gets cumbersome soon enough. Plus the wide nipples from Avent are slightly stiff and more useful in feeding my daughter even when she's fussy and keeps moving her mouth. The Dr. Brown wide nipples are very soft and tend to bend easily and almost come out of my daughter's mouth when she moves her head around and therefore it makes it difficult to feed her in those moments.
