If you read yesterday's post about glass baby bottles then you are already up to speed on the health risks of polycarbonate plastic (from which many baby bottles are made)...and the resurgence of glass, as a safer alternative.
The people at Silikids have come up with a novel way to make glass bottles even safer. They invented Siliskins, a protective, silicone 'skin' that slides on and off the bottle. Not only do Siliskins help protect the bottle, but they also make it easier for baby to grip. They come in fun, pastel colors but are translucent, so you can still see how much milk is in the bottle at all times! Each Siliskin comes with an Evenflo glass bottle and a silicone nipple (substituted for the traditional latex, due to the possibility of allergies).
Siliskins are completely safe for you and your baby - they are made from 100% food grade silicone and are hyper-allergenic. Toss them in the dishwasher, put them in the microwave or even boil them with your bottles - all this makes for super-easy handling and clean-up!
I've got a set of Siliskin bottles to give away! One 4-oz and one 8-oz bottle in your choice of colors. If you would like to win, just enter a comment on this post stating why you would like to try Siliskins. The contest will run through Thursday, February 7th at 12:00 midnight (One entry per person please and you must have a U.S. shipping address.) and I will post the winner on Friday, February 8th.
