Baby Shower Bash #24: OrganicKidz Stainless Steel Baby Bottle Review and Giveaway


So the last of my baby bottle reviews is one of my all time favorites. It is so unique and such a simple concept, I am so surprised we don't see more of them! I am talking about Stainless Steel Baby Bottles from OrganicKidz. I went on a search for these kinds of baby bottles, because I knew they had to exist. We have stainless steel water bottles, why not baby bottles? OrganicKidz delivers an extremely innovative product and I am so happy I get to include them in my Baby Shower Bash!

So I guess the first question is, why stainless steel? I talk quite a bit on my blog about BPA and all of the dangers out there regarding plastic. Now, me personally, I buy as little plastic as humanly possible. I know almost all of it is BPA free now, but to me, I just do not trust it. So when I have my third, its gonna be mainly glass and stainless steel if I have to pump my milk and give baby a bottle. This may not be a huge concern for many out there, but I wanted to feature different bottles to show you what is available. The OrganicKidz Stainless Steel Baby Bottle is unbreakable(so this is a benefit over glass), BPA free, PVC free, and is naturally bacteria resistant. I see no reason to not use a stainless steel baby bottle, except they are not readily available to most people.

For review I was sent a 4 ounce baby bottle and I cannot wait to use this on my third. Once again, just like my other bottle reviews, I did not get to actually test drive this on a baby, but I did play with it and I adore this bottle. I was sent the stainless steel bottle with green printing on the outside, which I thought was fitting for my crunchy blog. Take a look:

So, when I showed this to a few people I know, they had questions about being able to see the liquid inside and how much you're giving baby. I played around with this bottle extensively by pouring water in. The measurements are visible when you look inside the bottle, so there is no issue with not giving baby the proper amount. The lid doubles as a 2 ounce measuring cup, which is super handy when using formula. The OrganicKidz Stainless Steel Baby Bottles are compatible with most narrow-necked nipples as well. The bottle I received is a narrow-neck bottle, but the bottle openings also come in a wide-mouth version in both 4 and 8 ounces.

So, let me get back to a few more reasons why you should choose stainless steel baby bottles. Like I said above, they are naturally bacteria resistant, which makes them super sanitary. They are also highly recyclable. I know with plastics, I am always checking the numbers on the bottom to see what I am able to recycle in my area. The most obvious advantage is the durability of the bottles. Plastics become scratched and worn and need to be thrown out with each baby. Stainless steel baby bottles last for a few kids! The alloy composition of steel means it wont break down or become brittle when exposed to heat and cold sources. I love that they wont break when they are dropped and no scratches from daily use. Because it is so scratch resistant, there are no places for food or bacteria to hide. These bottles get really clean!

I love this quote on the website from the Financial Post (February 23, 2008):

"They put stainless steel pins your body and people live with them....There is no health issue"

Doesn't that make perfect sense? I know I want something 100% safe for my babies, and I know with OrganicKidz Stainless Steel Baby Bottles, I am getting that safety.

Now, lets talk about where we can buy these babies. OrganicKidz products are made in Canada. You can purchase any of their product on the OrganicKidz website, or you can find a store near you. For US locations, click here.

I highly recommend these to any mother who may need a bottle. I know I will be giving them as gifts to my new mommy friends!

  24. I learned:

    organicKidz bottle rings are dishwasher safe and easy to clean with hot soapy water. If sterilizing, please use a steamer only.

    organicKidz bottle rings are made without BPA, PVC or Phthalates. Since these chemicals are used to increase the strength and flexibility of plastic, products made with out these chemicals can be more susceptible to breakage. Replacement rings in all organicKidz colours are available.

    Thanks for the chance. bekki1820cb at gmail
