If you think about it, bottles are one of the most important and intimate tools you use with your baby. For most families, bottles are a part of the routine until at least age one, and usually beyond. Bottles are a part of nearly all babies’ upbringings, whether you’re a mother who’s experienced challenges with breastfeeding, a dad using the bottle to connect with baby during feeding time, or perhaps you’re away from your precious little one for part of the day, are weaning baby off the breast, or simply love the convenience that bottles offer for running errands and traveling… They are a necessity!
Unfortunately, many mainstream bottles are produced with harmful carcinogenic, reproductive toxic, endocrine disrupting, neurotoxic materials! It’s hard to believe regulations aren’t tighter on baby bottles and products in general, given how vulnerable their systems are, but don’t stress!
Our top baby bottle picks adhere to the following requirements we had when researching the best earth-friendly options:
Free of BPA and other common toxic chemicals found in plastics and other manufacturing materials/ practices
Offer anti-colic air systems
Dishwasher safe (top rack recommended)
