|Our inspiration for creating the Eco Baba Stainless Steel Baby Bottle and Sippy is our children. And even though I'm nursing, I just couldn't wait to try feeding our little one from our stainless steel baby bottles. Of course, now that our little girl is nearly 2 months old, I'm also excited to get back to playing tennis with my girlfriends.
In preparation for this day, I had already been pumping for about 3 weeks so we were able to use frozen breast milk that I had stored in silicon ice cube trays. As each cube equals 1 ounce, it's easy to measure the right amount of milk. So, I put 3 cubes of milk into our Eco Baba Baby Bottle and added our favorite level 1 wide neck bottle nipple (remember, any brand of wide neck nipple will work). Then, I ran the tap water in our sink to the temperature I wanted the milk and held the bottle directly under the running water. In about 1 minute, the milk was not only thawed, it was the perfect temperature. By making the water the temperature I wanted the milk, there was never a chance the milk would over heat.
We had decided to let our 7-year-old son do the first feeding as he had been begging us to let him since the day she was born! We gave him the baby and then handed him the bottle and off they went! The bottle performed perfectly and surprisingly, the baby took it very easily. For those of you that nurse, you already know that introducing a bottle can be tough so I was relieved it went well.
It is such a relief to me that we have a safe Baby Bottle to use with our daughter. Prior to starting this company, I used to wonder how I would bottle feed my next child given that most day cares won't allow glass and the dangers of plastics are being talked about daily on the news. For example, one article from Environment California states, "Scientists have linked very low doses of bisphenol A exposure to cancers, impaired immune function, early onset of puberty, obesity, diabetes, and hyperactivity, among other problems. For example, in one recent study, a single, low dose of bisphenol A administered to a newborn rat resulted in hyperactive behavior. " (http://www.environmentcalifornia.org/reports/environmental-health/environmental-health-reports/toxic-baby-bottles). This type of research is what led us to start this company. We knew we needed another alternative for our own children and hoped we would be able to help other families in the process. We are so proud that we have been able to provide a safe alternative to plastic and glass through our Eco Baba Stainless Steel Baby Bottles and Sippies.
