(NaturalNews) With our exposure to chemicals in everything from our air and water to our food and cleaning products, it's no wonder that parents are often on the lookout for safe products that will keep their kids healthy. Baby bottles are one product that parents need to be able to rely on. And, with instances such as the recent discovery that BPA has been found leeching even from BPA-free brands of baby bottles, it is hard to know which products to trust with your baby's health (http://www.environmentalhealthnews.org/ehs/b...).
Canadian company organicKidz has a great solution. It is a family-owned and operated business founded out of the desire to provide babies and their parents with safe, environmentally friendly drinking bottles. Their new line of stainless steel baby bottles solves many problems of bottles of the past.
Stainless steel's naturally bacteria-resistant surface does not harbor bacteria where scratches in glass and plastic bottles might. The smooth steel surface makes sterilizing the bottle with a steamer easy.
The bottles are also free of chemicals that you might find in plastic bottles such as phthalates, PVC and BPA. Children retain BPA at higher amounts and their developing systems can be more susceptible to endocrine disruptors such as BPA, (http://www.environmentalhealthnews.org/ehs/b...) so a bottle that is truly free of BPA is essential.
OrganicKidz bottles have further advantages over glass bottles in that they are much lighter to carry. Glass can also shatter but the steel bottles are unbreakable and dent resistant.
The company only uses the highest quality 304 18/8 stainless steel for their products -- the same quality of stainless steel used in kitchen equipment -- so it will not taint the contents of the bottle with a metallic taste.
For convenience, the bottles are compatible with most narrow necked nipples and are dishwasher safe. They are also friendly on the pocket book and the environment with an added sippy spout and bottle stopper, so that you can switch out the nipple and use the bottles for toddlers, older kids and even adults. With the flexibility of the bottle and the durability of stainless steel, the product can last the family for years.
You can express breast milk directly into the bottles and freeze it in the bottles too. Milk can be easily heated, when ready to be used, by putting the bottle in a glass of hot tap water or in a bottle warmer. Unlike glass or plastic, stainless steel immediately matches the temperature of the bottle contents. This means that simply by holding an organicKidz bottle, you will know if it is a good temperature for your child.
And for the environmentally conscious, stainless steel is a 100 percent recyclable product. Currently 50 to 60 percent of every stainless steel product is made from recycled materials. And with green awards from Eco Baby World and DisneyFamily.com, it seems the greenies everywhere are taking notice of this innovative product.
