Baby Born Free

Bornfree are bottles, cups & accessories that are totally free from of the potentially dangerous chemicals Bisphenol-A (BPA), Phthalates and PVC.

I lifted this from when the BabyBornFree website so you can know exactly what BPA is :
BPA is a known estrogen mimicker that is used in the production of polycarbonate plastic. According to researchers, BPA may cause developmental and neurological problems if it leaches from plastic. Reports suggest that small amounts of BPA may leach into food or beverages stored in polycarbonate containers, especially when the contents are heated.

We got sent some BPA free bottles to try out as well as a BornFree trainer cup. Now Oli has turned one but he's not ready to come off the bottles just yet , he still likes to have his bottle of milk every few hours and it would be evil of me to take that comfort from his just yet.

But I'm happy to say I am no longer being evil by giving him those plastic bottle which contain potential dangerous chemicals. It wasn't until I looked more into BabyBornFree before this review that I really knew the dangers of baby bottles out there.

I have noticed a difference with these bottles compared to Oli's old bottles - he doesn't seem to have to suck as hard to get his milk, the flow is just perfect for him.

The training cup has been great for his squash/water , I like the funky orange colour as it helps me to find it amongst his pile of toys. I have started to introduce his milk to him via this cup in the hope I can start to slowly make that transition from baby bottle to cup. The flow from this cup is just as great as the flow from the bottles, easy & smooth. It doesn't spill which is a great feature , there's various cups out there that claim to be non-spill but they do. It's easy to clean and safe to put in the dishwasher.

Added bonus to these bottles/cups is that they have a unique BornFree venting system which was designed to reduce colic and ear infections.

Its a great feeling knowing that I'm doing right for Oli by giving him his everyday essentials via a safe BabyBornFree system.

You can buy these bottles/cups/accessories direct from the BabyBornFree website at
