10% of the plastic produced every year worldwide winds up in the ocean. 70% of which finds its way to the ocean floor, where it will likely never degrade, leaving every square mile of ocean containing approximately 46,000 pieces of plastic. Another scary fact is an estimated 1,500 plastic bottles end up as waste in landfills or thrown in the ocean every second – with a huge portion of these plastic baby bottles.
Scary stuff right? … that is not even touching on the hundreds of chemicals used to create these bottles which also are not microwave or heat safe. BPA free – we have all heard of it but what people do not realise is many plastics, including BPA-free plastics, contain other chemical plasticisers. Unfortunately, many plasticizers are also endocrine disruptors similar to BPA, which means that they could cause many of the same health issues. Some plasticisers used may be even be more dangerous for our children than BPA.
Haakaa wide neck glass bottles are made of borosilicate glass. A material that is resistant to shock temperatures. The unique shape allows the bottle to be held closer to the body therefore allowing dads to enjoy closeness with baby during a time normally reserved for breastfeeding Mums. Our unique and natural shaped nipple mimics the natural feel, flex and movement of a mothers breast – making the transition from breast feeding to bottle feeding a pleasant one.
180ml bottles come complete with a slow flow nipple while our 260ml bottle comes with a fast flow.
Haakaa Nipple flow guides.
S – Slow flow (Suitable for 0-3month)
M – Medium flow (Suitable for 3+month)
L – Fast flow (Suitable for 6+month)
Please note: As all babies are different their requirements will not all be the same. There fore these age indicators are a rough guide only.
