Pura Kiki: 100% Plastic-Free Bottles That Grow With Your Child
As with most moms, I feel like we are constantly in the "testing" phase of baby, toddler and kiddo products - and the search for the perfect bottles or sippy cups can frustrate the best of us.
We look for ones that are:
- Leak- proof
- Easy to Hold
- Easy to Clean (the fewer parts, the better!)
When we became aware of BPA's toxicity, we started seeing "BPA-Free" products everywhere, however, it was recently found that BPA was replaced with BPS which is just as toxic as BPA!
So we wanted a completely plastic-free system so avoid as much chemical concern as possible. My options were glass - or - stainless steel. At the time of my search, my daughter was in a throwing phase, and I don't care how many silicone covers we'd use, she would have broken them, so I narrowed my search to stainless steel.
Then I found the jackpot: Pura Kiki. Not only do they meet the requirements above, but they also grow with your child. These bottles, offered in 5, 9 and 11 oz sizes, can be used from birth through toddlerhood allowing you to pop in a nipple, sippy spout, straw or even close off the opening with a seal when you use the bottle to hold snacks.
Even better, while you can buy Pura Nipples, the system is also compatible with MAM, Dr. Brown's Wide Neck, Avent Sport Spout, ThinkBaby, BornFree, UPIS and Pigeon Silicone Nipples.
They are made with unbreakable stainless steel and have the option of several fun colors options using non-toxic paint free of lead, phthalates, PVC and all that BPA nonsense.
Furthermore, they offer silicone covers and lids for each bottle - and since we wanted to avoid denting our hardwood floors and germs on the nipples, we snagged these as well.
Note: Since writing this, I noticed a few paint chips on two bottles. I recommend the silicone cover for protection and added insulation, however if that is not an option, the plain stainless steel will not chip.
The bottles features a wide mouth opening which is easy to clean and features internal volume markings for ease of measuring and to see how much your child is drinking.
We have been using the Pura Kiki System exclusively with Avent Silicone Nipples and Pura Sip Spouts for many months now with no leaks or issues of any kind (and my daughter takes her bottle to bed with her!). We can't recommend them enough!
Update: These bottles now have the option of a wide-mouth sports lid! It just keeps getting better!
You can purchase the Pura Kiki's on Amazon or at your local Whole Foods!
I hope you'll try them out!
