I think that unless you’ve been on another planet over the past year or two, you’ll be aware of all of the press around plastic baby bottles and the concerns about the chemicals and what could potentially be some serious effects on child development. This of course has meant that there have been some innovations in the bottle market (although not as many as you’d think) with the latest (and rather cool one) being the Prince Lionheart silicone bottles.
As a design-led parent bottles have rarely stirred a flicker of anything out of me, but these bottles are aside from being Bisphenol A (BPA), Phthalate, PVC, latex, and lead free which basically means no nasties, they’re shatterproof, microwaveable, and dishwasher free. They look great which adds some serious brownie points with the plastic ring, collar, and cap being food grade and the entire bottle is made from pure medical grade silicone. Slick!
The flexible body of the bottle means you can squeeze out excess air (more brownie points), your bambino can really grip it and even though it can change shape, it still stays airtight and closed (more brownie points). Much as I’m enamoured with the colour (I do love a bit of orange and grey), it gains serious kudos for not allowing milk residue to stick to the inside, so they’re a doddle to clean and sterilise.
They can be purchased as 4oz or 8oz sizes, in single (RRP Â£7.99 and Â£9.99) or in triple packs, (Â£19.99 or Â£24.99). You can find out more info and check for stockists on the Prince Lionheart site. Glasgow Pram Centre is already stocking.
