Plastic free bottles are hard to find. In fact, it’s impossible! The bottle might be made of an alternative material, like glass, but what about the nipple and lid? If you go to the trouble of buying plastic free bottles, don’t you want them to truly be 100% plastic free? EVERY bottle on the market contains plastic in some form – except for THESE.
Why no plastic, you may ask? What’s so bad about that? They’re making BPA-free plastic nowadays!
The answer to that is, even though “many bottle manufacturers offer BPA-free claims, mounting scientific studies show that BPS, its replacement, is linked to endocrine disruption and potentially just as toxic as BPA.” source
Why take a chance?
Of course we all want the safest products for our babies, so I was truly excited to find the Pura Stainless bottle company! They offer 100% plastic free bottles that TRANSITION with your child. Just switch out the lid on your bottle and it’s suddenly a sport cup. Or a snack cup! So many possibilities, plus a LIFETIME GUARANTEE.
The Pura Stainless company was kind enough to send me a selection of bottles and various nipples/spouts to try out with my kids and so far, we are in love!!
My girls have been asking for and drinking from the bottles every single day. The bottles wash up well, too – no ugly water marks on the steel! I love the silicone sleeve that keeps your hand a comfy temperature, regardless whether your beverage is warm or cool. (The bottles also happen to come in my favorite color, but there are other choices, too!)
My only concern with these bottles when I first saw them was, How do I know how much milk my baby is getting if there’s no lines on the outside of the bottle? I missed the part in the description that said volume gradations are marked on the inside so you can see how much liquid baby is consuming. 🙂
Pura’s Natural Vent Nipple™ was designed to mimic the variable flow rate of breast feeding with an elongated vent to reduce colic and spit-ups! You can tell which stage nipple you’re looking at by how many holes are in it – either 1, 2, or 3.
As a breastfeeding mom, I hated the thought of investing in bottles that I may only use a handful of times. Knowing I can use the same bottles for my kids and even myself just by switching to a sipper spout, straw, or sport top makes these totally worth the investment!
