Baby Bottles - The Right Choice For Your Baby

A baby bottle, commonly called a baby bottle or nursing bottle, is basically a small bottle with an attached teat for a child to suck directly from. It's usually used by very young babies and children, or when somebody can't drink from a bottle properly, for drinking itself, or being fed by hand. Sometimes it's used for feeding non-humanoid animals. Baby bottles are often made of rubber, vinyl, spandex or other soft, flexible materials.


There are mainly two types of baby bottles: plastic and glass. The advantages of using plastic baby bottles over glass baby bottles are that they don't shatter as easy, especially if the baby happens to swallow a small piece of the bottle while trying to spit it out, and they tend to break down quicker than glass does. However, compared to the health risks associated with the consumption of plastics, the disadvantages of baby bottles make glass the more preferable material.


Plastic baby bottles tend to break easily because the manufacturing process makes the parts too smooth. Also, plastic bottles are made of petroleum-based products, which tend to be brittle and can break easily. While older baby bottles made from glass are completely safe from breaking when accidentally swallowed, they are not recommended for older babies or children. As well as this, older babies tend to choke on smaller pieces of glass, so it is recommended that you don't buy them with plastic bottles. Glass baby bottles may look like more visually appealing containers but, in fact, they have a lot more disadvantages.


Plastic baby bottles can be re-sealed after washing. However, since plastic is non-biodegradable, it means that baby bottles made of plastic will undergo natural decomposition over time, harming the environment. As well as this, plastic bottles tend to leach BPA (bisphenol A) into the liquids that they contain. These harmful chemicals can harm the developing fetus as well as their mother, and studies show that there is a high risk of SIDS among newborns whose mothers had consumed plastic baby bottles. This is why it is better to opt for a glass for your baby's bottles.


Baby bottles come with various types of nipple flow rates, ducting system and other features. You need to choose the features that are right for you and your baby and then choose between different baby bottles according to these features. For instance, some baby bottles have two nipple ports, whereas others have three or even more nipple ports. Some baby bottles have adjustable air pressure while some have variable venting systems. However, the most important thing you need to check is the venting system - it should be efficient and it should ensure proper flow of air into the baby's mouth.


The port of the bottle nipple also plays an important role in breastfeeding. You should look for a port that allows enough air flow for comfortable breastfeeding. Some of the best feeding bottle nipples include Breastfeeding by Claddagh and the Love Baby Bottle Nipple System. These breastfeeding feeding bottles have adjustable port and adjustable nipple, which help mom to achieve comfortable breast feeding.


If you're looking for milk free feeding options, then you need to go for non-plastic bottles. Breastfeeding by bottle kits and reusable nipple products are a great alternative to bottles that use plastic. These non plastic products are made of cloth, silicone, nylon, polycarbonate or rubber, and they often feature different nipple types such as removable, prefold, gel, single or double.


Bottles are one of the most important parts of baby care. With so many bottles on the market today, choosing the right one can be a challenge. However, if you consider glass, you can ensure the safest feeding for your baby. Whatever you choose, make sure that it's fitted tightly and that it fits securely around the baby so that he doesn't accidentally get himself something that wasn't supposed to come from him!
