What reviewers didn't like

Comes at the higher end of the price spectrum.
Assembly instructions aren’t so clear
Challenging to hold (short and wide)
But the very wide nipple may not work well for all babies.
However, it seems that these bottles cause gases as a noticeable amount of users complained about that, so be mindful of that.
The slow flow nipples may be too fast for some newborns
With wide mouth, it often increases milk flow.
The option is a bit expensive compared to other best bottles for breastfed babies but that’s obvious because the package has 3 4oz bottles, 2 9oz bottles, Bottle brush, formula dispenser and 1 Soothie pacifier.
