BornFree Review

Born Free Logo

With all the worries we have for our children as they are growing up, it is always refreshing to find a company that gives us nothing to worry about!

BornFree was created by a dad out of a need for chemical-free bottles and sippy cups. The line of bottles, sippy cups, pacifiers and more do not contain the harmful Bisphenol-A (BPA), Phthalates and PVC. These days many companies are removing these chemicals from children’s items. BornFree never used them. Ever. BPA is a known estrogen mimicker that is used in the production of polycarbonate plastic. According to researchers, BPA may cause developmental and neurological problems if it leaches from plastic. Reports suggest that small amounts of BPA may leach into food or beverages stored in polycarbonate containers, especially when the contents are heated. BornFree’s cups and bottles feature the unique venting system, designed to reduce colic and ear infections. ~BornFree

My brother had his first child 6 months after I had mine. He told me about BornFree when she was born and that is all they have ever given her; bottles, pacis, sippy cups, everything. He told me they were BPA-Free {I hadn’t heard much about this 2 years ago!} and the safest thing for her. We already had all of our baby stuff, so that is what we used. Recently, after receiving several products from BornFree to try, now I see why he swears by them! Not only are they safe for children, they are also very durable and made with a very high quality plastic….BPA free plastic! So you know that those yucky chemicals are not seeping into your child! My two year old has been using her BornFree drinking cup for the past few weeks and I was really curious to how it was going to hold up to her chewing. She has ruined almost every sippy cup in the cabinet by chewing on it within the first few uses {none of these were BornFree}. Well, the BornFree drinking cup has withstood her chewing and is still fully in tact! Yay! The drinking cup also hasn’t started leaked like the other sippys we have. She is also very prone to ear infections, so I absolutely love that the BornFree venting system is made to reduce ear infections! We also received a few formula containers and pacifiers. The formula containers are perfect when we will eventually need to take formula on the go…or I love Steph’s idea of using them as a snack container for older children! Just one way to extend their use! The pacifiers are wonderful, too! I love the soft grip handle and they come in some fun bright colors! So nice! I am most definitely a BornFree fan and can’t wait to get my little guy one of their silicone teethers! {he will be finding it in his stocking Christmas morning!} He is just starting to want to chew on anything and everything. I know he will love it! amandasiggy Let’s take a minute to check out a few of the amazing products offered by BornFree:

tall glass

BornFree offers bottles made of glass as well as BPA-free plastic. You know when your baby is drinking from one of these, they are safe from harmful chemicals! Each bottle is complete with the new innovative air vent that helps eliminate colic symptoms.

BornFree also offers Eco-friendly bottles! They are made with the same Bisphenol-A Free plastic, and have the same venting system as the other bottles, but when you are done using these, just send it back! BornFree will recycle these into other products lines! So Awesome!

green drinking cup The BornFree drinking cup is Bisephenol-A Free and combines a hard, teething friendly spout and low vacuum valve that allows a free flow of liquid and reduces the risk of ear infections! I also love that the handles can be removed and used on any BornFree bottles and cups!

pacifiers_3x_tn

The BPA-Free Pacifier for Day and Night Use is new from BornFree. It is an orthodontic silicone pacifier with a flexible handle that retains its shape and doesn't hamper sleep. Made from materials that are 100% free of Bisphenol-A, Phthalates and PVC. I love that the pacifier encourages the natural development of baby’s teeth and that they are developed under the guidelines of biological dentistry. The breathable shield reduces skin irritation and protect sensitive skin! Check out those cute colors!

teether_pink_tn

The BornFree Silicone Teether, available in blue and pink, is made from medical grade silicone and is 100% free of Bisphenol-A, Phthalates and PVC. Designed by a Pediatric Dentist, the Teething Ring stimulates and soothes baby’s gums and allows for easier teeth eruption. The teether can be stored in the refrigerator and features a built-in cavity for anesthetic paste, an easy-grip handle and 5 different textures to enhance tactile sensation.

Getting your hands on BornFree products is so easy! You can shop BornFree products online or in several neighborhood retail stores! I know so many families that would appreciate BornFree products for their children!

Here’s what some of the gals had to say about BornFree:

We have been using our BornFree bottles for the last few weeks and I have to say I am in love with them. They are so nice. I can see now why people swear by them. They feature a valve that handles a smooth flow and in turn there are no leaks. This is a heaven send when our little one throws his bottle on the carpet or in his crib. I don't have to run and pick it up when I hear the thud. I also love that they feature a unique venting system that allows the air to flow and helps reduce the hard sucking that often leads to colic.gas. and ear infections.
BornFree also sent us a drinking cup which has been great as we are going to be weaning our little one off of his bottle soon and this has really helped as he can easily drink from it while sitting in his highchair. BornFree is such a great company and I am so glad to know that their products are safe for my little one. I am so happy with their products that I will be using them with my next baby too.

My girls used BornFree sippy cup when they first transitioned from the bottle. I chose the BornFree brand because they use BPA-free plastic. The handles were great for when they were first learning to hold the cup, and later they preferred to use the cup without the handles. My girls eventually moved on to sippy cups with a hard spout, so we stopped using the Born Free ones. I didn’t realize that we had been using the BornFree Trainer Cups (with the soft spouts), and that there is a BornFree Drinking Cup with a hard spout, until I received this sample from them! It is great for my girls at this age (two and a half years). The hard spout has not leaked at all, and the cup, valves, and spout are easy to clean. They are a snap to wash by hand or on the top rack of our dishwasher. We also received two formula containers, which we use as snack holders when we’re on the go. They hold a lot of cereal and little cookies and are also easy to clean. BornFree products are perfect for us! stephaniesiggy

Wow! BornFree has created high quality, safe products for our children! Now that I have used the BornFree products with my children, I will most definitely continue using them and recommending them to my friends! BornFree would make such great stocking stuffers this holiday season!
