The most important thing about buying a new feeding bottle is to make sure the materials from which it is made are safe. Babies have a really low tolerance for toxic materials and allergens, so even a residue of BPA can cause your baby big problems later in life. Always check to see the certificate for proof of materials used in the bottle. If the teat isn’t durable enough, it can tear and small bits of it can fall into the milk and choke the baby. The best material for teats is medical-grade silicone.
There is a wide variety of baby feeding bottles available. Here is a list of some of the safest baby bottles that you can find in the market.
1. Pura Kiki Infant
