Eco Baby Bottles

From the time they're born
Til' the time they toddle,
Keep them safe and green
With eco-friendly bottles.

Babies have an unavoidable oral fixation, so ensure that the thing that goes into their mouths most often is safe! Opt for BPA-free plastic bottles or even glass bottles with silicone nipples and avoid purchasing baby products that contain the following:

  • Bisphenol A (BPA) bottles, are rigid plastics. When BPA leaches into formula in large quantities, it has the potential to cause developmental harm in infants.
  • Polyvinyl chloride, or PVC, can be found in many infant teething toys as well as some bottles. In fact, it is one of the most popular plastics because it is inexpensive and simple to work with. However, in high volumes, PVC has been found to damage the organs of lab animals, and can even cause cancer.
  • Phthalates maximize the flexibility and life-span of many plastics, including some baby bottles, but they put infants at the most risk for problems with their endocrine and reproductive systems.

This Baby Bottle Comparison Chart can help you decide which bottle is right for your child.
