Why a baby bottle?
introduced the Thinkbaby over 4 years ago 95% of the baby bottles on the market
were made of polycarbonate which contains BPA.
Initially, we attempted to convince the major companies to move off of
polycarbonate, but after being unsuccessful we launched thinkbaby and
thinksport to address the concern of chemicals leaching from consumer
products. We started with the baby
bottle because polycarbonate was ubiquitous across the industry. As little ones systems are still in a state
of development they have very little defense against foreign chemicals.
companies have emerged to offer BPA Free baby bottles, many bottles not only
still contain BPA despite saying BPA Free (see Health Canada study), but many
companies have also landed on untested materials just because the material
claims to be free of BPA. thinkbaby
utilizes the precautionary principle in the creation of all of our products. We
dont jump to new materials without doing the requisite testing to ensure that
we havent landed on another BPA-like material.
When we target a product segment that concerns us, we ask the question,
How can we make the product line Safe. Functional. Sustainable. thinkbaby and thinksports focus has led us to
be the first company to span safe consumer products ranging from baby to
How is the Thinkbaby bottle different?
Simply creating a
baby bottle that was safe just wasnt enough.
We went the extra mile to create a bottle that solved many parental
complaints. For example, most bottles on
the market contain venting systems. Our system is built right into the
nipple. So there are no extra pieces to
clean or potentially lose.
We then made the
nipple No Spill through our cross cut design. This eliminated a large amount of
mess that occurs during feeding. It also
mimics the way children feed during breastfeeding, as it requires them to apply
pressure and nurse to receive fluid.
We also used a little forward thinking and
designed the bottles to be convertible into our award winning Sippy Cup. Most parents have between 8 to 16 baby
bottles. And when it comes time to move to sippy cup they have to go out and
spend a lot of money to acquire them, while also having to toss out all of the
old baby bottles which are then destined for landfills. With the conversion kit, parents can simply
convert their existing baby bottles into our Sippy Cup which not only saves
them money but it also saves the environment from excess waste. Once parents are ready to move on to regular
cups, the baby bottles can simply be recycled after use, as they are
made from No. 5 plastic.
You may also
notice that we do not use clear plastic windows with our products. We have found that these windows are made
from PET or PVC. It doesnt make sense to take a safe baby bottle and put it up
against something that can off gas onto the product.
