5 Eco-Friendly, BPA Free Baby Bottles for Safe Feeding

by , 03/22/10

If you want a non-toxic, structurally inert baby bottle, you can’t go wrong with glass. Worried about potential mishaps and breakage? Well, plastic bottles have their place, too. Most of the plastic baby bottles on the market, however, are made with polycarbonate plastic (#7), which could leach an endocrine-disrupting chemical called bisphenol-A (BPA) into your baby’s milk.

BPA has stirred up a heap of controversy of late, but we’re proponents of the “better to be safe than sorry” school of thought. In the slideshow above, we’ve rounded up five of our favorite baby bottles, from glass to food-safe polypropylene to BPA-free Tritan plastic.

GREEN TO GROW

If the fragile nature of glass is a concern, Green to Grow’s shatter-resistant polyethersulfone (PES) plastic bottles are BPA-, lead- and PVC-free. They’re available in 5 oz. and 10 oz. sizes, as well as in both regular and wide neck versions.

MIMIJUMI

Mimijumi’s “Very Hungry” bottle is not only BPA-free, but it’s also designed to mimic the breast. This should prove more enticing for first-time bottle drinkers (or the bottle adverse), as well as prevent nipple confusion later on.

WEE GO

Glass is as inert a material as you can get but it’s also more likely to break if you drop it. Wee Go sidesteps this problem with shock-absorbing silicone sleeves that hug the glass bottles within. Bonus: The candy-colored sleeves offer extra traction for tiny hands to grip the bottles’ surface more easily.

    I love the idea of staying away from plastic altogether, and I can verify from my own 3 kids’ heavy use that our weego glass bottles haven’t broken. Plus they are so cute it’s hard to resist…
