For the design-conscious baby and mama, meet the Comotomo bottle, a brand that was a recipient of the 2010 IF Product Design Award. Your baby will love the soft, skin-like material of the bottle, which promises to help the little one transition from breast to bottle, and the bottle’s unique air-flow system allows babies to get more milk and less air. Approved by the FDA and BPA-free, Comotomo’s wide-mouth design also makes the bottles easy to clean (also helpful: the fact they can go into the dishwasher — perfect for busy moms everywhere.
The Ba Baby Bottle Holder
Baby bottles are great for feeding your baby, but the design leaves a lot to be desired when it comes time for your baby to self-feed. The Ba Baby Bottle Holder is a circle-like encasement for your favorite baby bottle that helps your munchkin feed solo — sometimes as early as three months. The ball-design of the Ba is FDA-approved silicone, BPA-free and features an array of fun colors to get your baby gripping away.
Munchkin’s Click Lock spill-proof cups
Before you know it, your baby will be a toddler and you’ll need some bottle-like toddler cups for when it’s time to make the transition. That’s where Munchkin’s new Click Lock spill-proof cups come in. Available in an array of bright colors and designs (trainer, sippy, straw, flip-straw and big-kid cups), they all feature an advanced leak-preventing design and are BPA-free.
“Very Hungry” baby bottle (8 oz.), $15; “Not So Hungry” baby bottle (4 oz.), $14
The Mimijumi “Very Hungry” and “Not So Hungry” baby bottles also get high marks for design and functionality. Designed with input from mothers, doctors and lactation experts, the BPA-free Mimijumi (which features a nipple that is breast-like in appearance and texture to help with latching) was conceived as a stylish complement to breast-feeding.
