The Best Baby Bottles and the Story of How I Brought them to the UK

OrganicKidz stainless steel baby bottles are the best baby bottles on the UK market – they’re safer & healthier, lightweight yet virtually indestructible and their clever design ensures they will grow up with your child so they will be used daily for years to come. That’s what I call eco-friendly! And, all thanks to a chance encounter.

Ever since I started selling organic baby food through the Ulula website 10 years ago I have had so many mums and dads ask me what are the best baby bottles to complement the super quality Holle baby milks. Now I’ve finally found the answer.

Earlier this Summer I was visiting my sister in Austria – she owns a gorgeous little hotel situated at the end of an old glacial valley. It always feels like a proper holiday when I’m staying there, so thinking about finding the best baby bottles for the website was the last thing on my mind!

It just so happened that some of my fellow guests were from Canada, a lovely couple with a four month old baby girl. And, when I very first met them they were feeding their little one. I was amazed by what I saw. I never knew such a baby bottle existed!

Why Stainless Steel Makes the Best Baby Bottles

The best baby bottles? OrganicKidz baby bottles are made from stainless steel and have many advantages.This little girl was drinking her milk from a stainless steel baby bottle! Naturally, I was fascinated and got chatting with the mum (as I do!) as she let me feed her daughter – well, I couldn’t resist the offer! She told me these OrganicKidz baby bottles were invented by a fellow Canadian mum and they are now a huge hit there.

As you can imagine, as soon as I got the chance I borrowed my sister’s laptop and took a proper look at them. And, what I found was like music to my ears. I’d like to explain why I think these are the best baby bottles around and why I wanted them on the Ulula website.

The Safest and Healthiest Options for Baby Bottles

These baby bottles are the safest and healthiest alternative to both plastic and glass baby bottles.

No Chemical Nasties Leaching Into Your Baby’s Milk

Plastic baby bottles can contain some very dubious chemicals, added to make the plastic more functional or durable. For example, BPA (bisphenol A) is a chemical that is added to plastic in order to make it stronger. BPA has been linked to a number of health concerns including endocrine disruption, some types of cancers and attention deficit disorder. Other chemical nasties include PVCs and Phthalates, also known to be harmful to children’s health – not the kind of thing you want to leach into your baby’s milk, which is exactly what can happen, especially with warm liquids.

This, for me, is especially concerning given newborn and very young babies are using these products day in day out – when so many of their bodily systems are still rapidly developing. These Organickidz are the best baby bottles then because they use food grade steel – steel is an inert metal and does not leach chemicals into your baby’s milk.

By the way, because the steel used is such high quality, just like with top quality cutlery, there is NO tainting of your baby’s milk. Your little one won’t have a metallic taste in their milk.

No Scratching, No Bacterial Growth, No Staining and No Stinks!

These baby bottles are also a better alternative to plastic because, despite repeated daily use, they don’t readily scratch. The multiple micro-scratches that plastic bottles rapidly acquire harbour bacteria. Even glass scratches and chips over a short time and will also harber such bactieria. Unlike plastic and glass, steel is naturally resistant to bacteria. As a result these baby bottles don’t stain or retain odours, even after prolonged use. You can see why this chance encounter got me so excited. But that’s just the beginning.

The Best Baby Bottles are Designed to Last

Being made of steel these baby bottles are, of course, virtually indestructible and so last a very, very long time. While the little baby I was lucky enough to cuddle and feed in Austria wasn’t old enough to be mistreating her bottle, take a look at the mischievous monkey in this short clip…

Can you imagine glass surviving such treatment? Even plastic bottles get brittle after just a few months of constantly heating to sterilise them – not steel! They certainly are the most robust solution.

And, while these baby bottles are made of the highest quality steel and are so robust don’t expect them to be heavy – just the opposite. Unlike glass, these bottles are also incredibly lightweight. I couldn’t believe how light they are when our little Canadian’s bottlefeed came to an end.

A Bottle Design that Grows with Your Baby – From Newborn, to Toddler to School Child

But what makes these baby bottles so special for me is the fantastic thought that’s been put into their design. These bottles are designed to last your growing child for years, by growing up with them!

These ‘Baby Grows Up’ bottles come in kits. Your baby’s bottle will convert to a trainer cup (sippy cup as the Canadians call them) and will later convert to an ordinary water bottle for your child – the perfect size for the lunchbox when off to the childminder or nursery. That’s why we call them the 3 in 1 baby bottles.

So, that’s how through a chance encounter while on holiday I found the best baby bottle. The safest, healthiest and virtually indestructible bottle that will last your growing child for years – now that’s what I call eco-friendly!

And, that’s why, as soon as I saw these bottles in action in Austria, I knew we had to stock them on the Ulula website. They are the perfect complement to the Holle baby milk range.

‘Just Like Mum’ Teats

What makes these the best baby bottles doesn’t stop there! What happens when you let a mum design a baby bottle? She insists on inventing a teat that simulates what happens when a baby suckles on the mother’s breast.

This unique ‘just like mum’ design and ultra soft and flexible silicone allows your baby’s mouth and tongue to move in a natural, wave-like motion to contort the teat into the best position to form a vacuum – this leads to more comfortable feeding for your baby.

The integrated venting redirects air away from the liquid and allows your baby to drink continuously without taking in air bubbles which reduces the chances of gas or colic.

OrganicKidz unique teat design perfectly complement their baby bottles

Every ‘Baby Grows Up’ 3 in 1 baby bottle set comes with three such teats – one slow flow, one medium and one fast flow. So again, all you’ll need to last your baby as he or she gets older. Then they’ll move onto the included silicone trainer spout and you’ll attach the included trainer handle to convert the baby bottle to a trainer cup. What a brilliant idea!

The Real Test – One Mum’s Findings

As I sat with my sister’s laptop I’d pretty much made up my mind to stock these unique baby bottles on the Ulula website. This amazing coincidence of meeting this young Canadian couple with their baby provided me with the answer I’ve been struggling with for the last ten years to the perennial question – what are the best baby bottles?

As we were chatting I thought to myself, I have an opportunity here to ask a totally independent buyer exactly what she thought of her baby’s bottles. So, that’s what I did (thanks to Clara from Ottowa):

“I’ve used the OrganicKidz  Baby Grows Up bottles with my little girl since the day she was born and I’ve only ever been impressed. The bottles look stylish, they’re really hard wearing and, most of all, I know our precious baby is safe. I love that the bottles will grow up and adapt with my daughter and will last her for years as a water bottle later. I’ve only bought two bottles for my baby – that’s all I’ll ever need!”

Bringing the Best Baby Bottles to the UK

You won’t be surprised to hear that as soon as I got back from visiting my sister I got in touch with the good people over at OrganicKidz. The rest, as they say, is history!

I am really pleased to be able to not only now recommend what I genuinely believe is the best baby bottle range available on the market, but to actually sell the very same bottles. The OrganicKidz stainless steel baby bottles are now exclusively available in the UK through Ulula.

So, what exactly does the OrganicKidz 3 in 1 baby bottle set come with?

Each of these super sets includes:

  • 1 x 270ml stainless steel bottle (available in blue or lavender)
  • 1 x stainless steel snug fitting protective lid
  • 3 x Accordion Flex peristaltic teats (slow, medium and fast flow for each stage of bottle feeding)
  • 1 x easy to grab trainer handle

All in all the OrganicKidz 270ml 3 in 1 baby bottle set costs £28.42 (inc. VAT) and is available for immediate UK delivery.

And That’s Not All..

I don’t have the space here to tell you everything about these baby bottles. I haven’t even mentioned the separate THERMAL BABY BOTTLES that will keep your baby’s drink warm or cold for 6+ hours. Brilliant for taking a prepared bottle of formula along when you’re out with baby!

Visit the new BABY BOTTLE AND TEATS page on the Ulula website for more information about the bottle range and spare teats. And, while you’re there take a look at the most environmentally friendly BABY BOTTLE STORAGE RACK you’ll ever see.

These safe, hygienic and robust bottles are the longlasting, eco-friendly complement to your Holle organic baby milks and formula. And, you know that you just need the one bottle to grow with your baby – no separate trainer cups to buy and your child has a gorgeous water bottle for later. Isn’t that amazing!
