LilSugarSource: 7 New Baby Bottles For 2012
The average baby bottle is about to get a modern makeover! Most moms don't equate technology and baby bottles, but as with most baby products, the two worlds are colliding. From new bottles designed for breastfed babies to bottles that avoid plastic and glass altogether, take a look at seven bottles that will be hitting store shelves this year!
- 5 Phases Hybrid Glass Baby Bottles: The safety of a glass baby bottle and the comfort of a BPA-free plastic bottle in one, the 5 Phases Bottle ($20 each) is one of the most interesting phthalate-free bottles to hit the market. A removable glass insert is placed within a plastic sleeve to protect baby (and floors) from shattered glass. If the glass does break, it is contained within the plastic sleeve, making clean up a breeze.
- Similac SimplySmart Bottle: Similac has been the go-to formula brand for bottle-feeding mamas for years, so it's no surprise that the company is now introducing a line of baby bottles. The Similac SimplySmart Bottle ($15 for two) is designed with many mom-friendly features such as SmartClose (a blue shield that appears when the bottle is properly closed to prevent leaks), EasyMix (a device that helps mix formula and water to reduce bubbles and formula clumps), and a powder cap that holds formula for easy on-the-go mixing (sold separately).
- BARE Bottle: Your breasts don't have air vents, so why should bottles? That's the thought process behind BARE (available later this year) bottles. Designed to mimic the natural breastfeeding process, the BARE bottles have silicone nipples that mimic the behavior of real breasts - extending and retracting during the feeding process to reduce air intake.

- Comotomo Baby Bottles: A squeezable bottle? Comotomo Baby Bottles ($16) are also designed to mimic the breastfeeding process with their wide-neck design and smooth, skinlike feel. Best of all, the body of the bottle is squeezable, much like a natural breast, so baby can grab on and get comfortable.
- Klean Kanteen Kid Kanteen Baby Bottle: Klean Kanteen burst onto the eco-friendly market a few years ago with its stainless-steel water bottles. The company is now extending their range to include five-ounce and nine-ounce baby bottles ($20), designed with a double-venting system to reduce colic. Available with three different flow rates, the bottles feature measuring guides on both the inside and outside.
- Pura Kiki Bottles: Another stainless-steel offering, Pura Kiki ($14) gives parents and plastic-free option when it comes to bottle feeding. What separates Pura Kiki from other stainless bottles is their compatibility with other brands' silicone nipples - including Dr. Brown's, ThinkBaby, Avent, and Mam. The bottles then transition into sippy cups with a simple switching of their tops.
- Born Free Disney Baby Collection : Born Free, the first BPA-free collection of bottles, recently revealed its new packaging design (the bottles have, for the most part, remained the same) and is now introducing a fun new collection for Disney Baby ($20 for three). Featuring Born Free's popular venting system, the bottles and sippy cups are decorated with characters from The Lion King or Minnie Mouse.
