ThinkBaby takes the thinking out of choosing the right bottles

I don't know about anyone else out there (however I'm assuming its most of you!), but baby bottles and sippy cups have been two items that I have spent WAYYYY too much time worrying about and researching than I care to admit. It started when I attempted to transition my older son from bottle to sippy cup, which was disastrous, therefore I have researched and tried EVERY sippy cup out there. Then when pregnant with my 2nd child, we had the whole BPA scare of 2008, and I realized that my bottles were not BPA free. I spent hours upon hours upon hours researching bottles. So, what I'm saying, is you can TRUST ME when I tell you I have found the perfect bottle. Here were my main criteria:
  • BPA-free (duh.)
  • wide nipple since my babies are mostly breastfed, I wanted an easy transition to the bottle for when mommy needed a break!
  • venting system so reduce the amount of gas
  • dishwasher safe (I was SO over washing bottles by hand!)
ThinkBaby bottles meet and exceed all my expectations. All of their products are free of Bisphenol-A (BPA), Phthalates, Nitrosamines, PVC, Lead, Melamine, and toxic chemicals. Plus, they're CUTE! I love the orange.

There is something else really great about these bottles. THEY CONVERT INTO SIPPY CUPS! Oh yes you heard me right! You can buy a conversion kit which includes 2 extra soft cross cut spouts and 1 trainer cup handle. The spouts are shaped like a sippy, but are made of the same soft silicone as the bottle nipples making for an easier transition.

We were given the opportunity to try out the conversion kit, and we love them. My 10 month old can easily grab onto it and he actually drinks from it! I am pumped about not having to buy 400 more sippy cups for my younger son, I can just use the conversion kits with the 12 bottles we already have.

ThinkBaby
has a whole line of safe non-toxic feeding products for your kiddos, and even some for adults. Their new line of bottles are made of polypropylene which is recyclable. For all you green mamas out there - this is THE BOTTLE/SIPPY to have!

  1. I am a fan of the BPA feeding set.

    I like that it is BPA free and that it is metal. I also like the curved utensils.

  14. I think the Feeding Set is super cute (we love orange in our house!) but my son is not a fan of plates and bowls yet. He prefers to throw them.
    However, we love cups and sippy cups and training cups -- I love that (besides the obvious bpa-free aspect) they are sleek and cool looking, and (like I said before) ORANGE!! :) Love that.

  23. I love the complete bpq free feeding set. It looks great and would be nice to know that it is safe for my little boys. I think that the greatest thing that I saw on the site was that they had a conversion kit to go from bottle to sippy cup. Much more environmentally friendly than buying the whole thing all over again!

  80. my fave is actually the think baby cup because of the EXTRA SOFT SPOUTS:
    High grade silicone spouts provide for an easier transition from baby bottle to sippy cup, as babies are already used to the feeling of the baby bottle nipple.
