Safe and Sweet Baby Bottles!


Plastic baby bottles have received extra attention recently as research came to light showing many popular models leach Bisphenol-A (BPA), a suspected endocrine disruptor. Here are the top 3 safe Baby Bottles.

Adiri, run by three moms in the Bay Area, makes the Adiri Natural Nurser, a cylindrical bottle with a breast-shaped top which won the Medical Design Excellence Award for 2008. The polypropylene plastic (#5) bottles are BPA-, phthalate-, and PVC-free.

Born Free makes glass bottles, which are safe for babies. Born Free also makes plastic bottles that are free of BPA, phthalates, and PVC.

A husband and wife team started Green to Grow after facing toxic concerns with their own new baby. The company makes bottles from a BPA-free resin called polyethersulfone (PES), and considers the environment in other ways at the company, including using only 100% recycled paper and soy inks in packaging, and donating 1% of annual sales to environmental causes.


  1. Thanks for posting this...good info for parents and soon-to-be-parents.

    BTW, I received my bag in the mail. So fun and cute!

  2. Hi, I happened across your blog and love your articles. I wanted to add that the feeding and storage bottles by Milkbank, which is a new brand at Babysrus is also a product that is free of phthalates, PVC and BPA. Also because it's a storage system (it has a little pump that sucks the oxygen out of the storage bottle which keeps breastmilk fresher longer) using this product eliminates the need for plastic storage bags!
