Sorry I haven’t been blogging much this week, but I have good reason: *It has always been my policy to not show pics of my kids or use their real names, but this calls for some showing off right? He needs a blog name though so that will be revealed tomorrow along with all the gory birth details
And what I love this week is OF COURSE baby related. I might have mentioned before that a while back we went on a massive plastic purge in our house in an effort to get rid of BPA. Which meant bottles, pacifiers and a whole bunch of sippy cups. My girls had outgrown all of them anyway and too many were pink which wasn’t going to work for a baby boy so….2 birds, one stone.
But now that baby boy is here he needs some replacements. I first learned about Born Free when I won some products in a blog giveaway from my friend, The Happy Housewife. Their products are all natural, completely free of Bisphenol-A (BPA), Phthalates and PVC. Otherwise known as yucky bad stuff that does yucky bad stuff to your baby. And they have a great range of products for new babies all the way to older kids. Perfect for our family.
First off their bottles have 5 different nipple flow rates, have been proven to reduce colic & ear infections and are dishwasher safe (a big must for me). They also sent me a glass bottle which I have been really leaning toward, but was worried about how they hold up in a house where things seem to break easily. Well their glass bottles come with a silicone sleeve for protection.
Second, they have these great transitional cups for the bottle to sippy. I don’t know about you, but I find this process painful. It never seems to go that smoothly and I am never quite sure what I am doing. But these cups have a soft spout that is close to a bottle and handles to make holding on easy. And it has an inner valve like a bottle so the child doesn’t have to suck as hard to get the liquid out.They also make a normal sippy cup and a stainless steel water bottle for the older kiddos.
Then, their pacifiers. I like that they have an orthodontic nipple and aren’t too big. I have to be honest, I am not a huge fan of the logo on them, but that is a minor thing to me. And I never even thought of teethers when I was doing the plastics purge, but thankfully with Born Free, it is one less thing I have to worry about.
*Disclosure: Born Free sent me some of their products to sample in order to review. Some of the other products I mentioned were products I won as I stated above. I did not receive any financial compensation for my review and all opinions, as always, are mine alone.
