BPA and Glass Baby Bottles – Siliskin and Wee Go

siliskin glass baby bottlesGlass baby bottles are making a big come back in recent months. One of the primary reasons for this is that so many of the plastic bottles on the market contain BPA or Bisphenol A. Basically it is an estrogen-like chemical used to make plastic but it is actually one of the last things we want to expose our children too. It can speed up puberty and add to weight gain, and may cause changes that can lead to breast and prostate cancer. Other studies have shown that is may cause brain damage, abnormal organ development, and hyperactivity. Not only is BPA itself bad news, but it is popping up everywhere from baby bottles to baby toys to formula cans. While the amount of BPA in each individual product might be considered to small to be unsafe (yeah right) the cumulative exposure from all the different sources can be significant.

So it is no wonder that so many parents decided to look for BPA free baby bottles and BPA free sippy cups. BUT I must admit that I had a heard time wrapping my head around using a glass bottle for a baby or toddler. Yes, they are made with very thick and safe glass but they are still….well…glass. Usually as parents we seek to keep our babies AWAY from glass right? Well, I stumbled upon a product that might ease your mind a little, Siliskin Baby Bottles. They are sturdy, glass baby bottles with a silicone sheath  that helps to prevent the bottle from breaking. They come in 4 or 8 ounce sizes and they have several colors. Here is a description:

Microwave safe, hypo allergenic and dishwasher friendly, this translucent silicone sleeve allows you to see measurements and liquid in the bottle. Cleaner than any plastic, parents-in-the-know realize that glass bottles are the best.

At $10 and $12 respectively they are a great deal for a product that brings peace of mind.

The silicone nipple is latex-free and non-toxic. The plastic ring, plug and cap contain no polycarbonates and are food grade, FDA approved and recyclable. They are bisphenol A, phthalate, PVC and polycarbonate-free! The retail for $18.

Also check out the Evenflo Cozy Glass Bottle with Sleeve, 3-Pack - Glass bottles with a comfy sleeve to protect the bottle from breakage.

A newer option for those that still opt for plastic baby bottles but BPA free is the Green to Grow baby green to grow baby bottlebottle. They are free of phthalates, bisphenol A, lead, and PVC and they are quite reasonable in price.

    Those are even cute too!
    Any idea if any of them are better than others to use while breastfeeding? The BreastFlow bottles are the only ones my son would take, but they have BPA in them. (We had a very hard time getting my son to take an occasional bottle.)

    I don’t know how old your son is, but you may have better success with getting him to use a sippy cup or normal cup then a bottle. He also may be able to drink from a straw. My daughter stopped taking a bottle a few months ago (it looks to me like all of these bottles are pretty basic) but she is great with a normal cup or a straw. Another thing is to try different nipples. I have the glass evenflo bottles, which seem to work with gerber, evenflo, nubby etc, nipples which helped when my daughter was first using a bottle while I was at work.

    It’s good to see that creative design can apply to baby bottles too.

    May grace fall like rain from heaven

    May you find a single feather from the wings of a passing Angel.

    May you be caressed by warm winds on cool days.

    May you be refreshed by cool winds on hot days.

    May you always smile at what you see reflected back in mirrored pools.

    Of cool winter morns

    and butter fly songs

    and quiet storms

    and a bright fish leaping under the moon.

    Glass baby bottles? I’m afraid to try one. What if they got broke and harm the baby? It will be safer to use if they surround it with rubber.
