Dishwasher safe (Top rack recommended).
Before first use:
We recommend sterilizing the bottles in boiling water for 2
to 5 minutes before first use. We do not
recommend utilizing sterilizers, as we cannot guarantee that the ones on the
market were made with safe materials.
While the baby bottles are technically microwave safe, we strongly
suggest that parents do away with the use of microwaves for all items and
products destined for your little one.
To prepare the nipple for first use, please squeeze the top
of the nipple and the venting tube. You
will want to make sure that both open properly.
When tightening down the collar of the bottle, do not over tighten, as
this will reduce the amount of airflow into the baby bottle.
What type of materials do you use in your baby bottle?
The nipple is made from medical grade silicone.
What nipple flow should I use?
Thinkbaby baby bottles come outfitted with Stage A nipples.
The nipples are designed for newborns to 6 months. The flow rates are determined by
averages. Depending on your little one you
may need to adjust which flow rate that you purchase. The chart below should provide help in
determining which to purchase.
We highly recommend that parents are purchasing at least 4
additional baby bottle nipples per stage.
Suggested Flow Rate
0 to 6 months Stage A Nipples
6 + months Stage B Nipples
9 to 36 months Sippy Cup Spouts
18 to 48+ months Thinkster straws
Baby bottle nipples and spouts made from silicone will
typically last 2 to 3 months prior to needing replacement. If you notice tears or breakage, discontinue
use and replace.
How does the venting system work?
The venting systems work by allowing air to travel back into
the baby bottle. Movement of air back
into the baby bottle allows the bottles internal pressure to reach
equilibrium. This reduces the amount of
suction required to get fluid out of the baby bottle. Research shows that having a venting system
reduces the incidence of gas and spit up, as children take in less air when
drinking when venting systems are present.
While most modern baby bottles have some sort of venting system, the
advantage to Thinkbabys system is that it is build right into the baby bottle
nipple. So there are no extra parts to deal with and its easy to clean.
How do I convert the Thinkbaby bottle into the Sippy Cup?
One of the great things about the Thinkbaby system is that
you can convert the baby bottles into our award winning Sippy Cups. Simply purchase the Thinkbaby Conversion kit
from your local retailer or online. To
convert, remove the baby bottle nipple and replace with the Sippy Cup
spout. Then place the Sippy Cup handles
around the top of the baby bottle and push down over the neck of the
bottle. Tighten the collar with spout
around the neck of the bottle and.presto chango you have our award winning
How to prevent nipple collapse?
With cross cut nipples it is important that you have the right
nipple flow for your childs age. The
suggested age range is listed above.
This is the number one reason for nipple collapse across baby bottle
lines. Please note that these numbers are based on averages. If you have an
especially fast or slow feeder on your hands, you may need to adjust your
movement between flow levels.
Do not over tighten the collar, as this will restrict the
