After all the hoopla about BPA in 2008, a worthy hoopla, but hoopla nevertheless; I have been in search for the perfect baby bottle. Not that we really need one. I am a breastfeeding mother, but I think of all the mothers who decide to go on formula (or maybe a break from Breastfeeding once in awhile) and want the safest option for them. There have been many reviews here on Eco Child’s Play about BPA free baby bottles, and I would like to add another one to the mix.
Introducing the first Silicone baby bottle from Prince Lionheart, it’s an option for those mothers who do not like glass or want to ditch plastics altogether. Starting at about nine dollars a pop, the price point is very similar to other BPA free bottles, maybe a bit more affordable. Made with medical grade silicone, it is considered more safe than any polycarbonate or bottles made out of synthetic materials. According to Twilight Moon, one of the suppliers for the bottle, “The plastic ring, collar and cap are made of FDA-approved food grade material and contain no polycarbonates or BPA”. It is suppose to be colic reducing but all the baby bottle companies make that claim; it’s hard to really know for sure. So take that with a grain of salt. However, other reasons why you might want to consider Prince Lion Silicone Baby Bottle:
• BPA, Phthalate, PVC latex and lead FREE
• Microwave, freezer and dishwasher safe
• Easy to Clean
And as someone who likes beautiful things, I have to say that it’s one of the best designed bottles I have seen in, very modern and minimalistic. A moot point for most but for those moms who are design oriented or fashionable; it could be your bottle of choice. Something you won’t cringe taking out of your very “un-baby like” diaper bag.
While this probably won’t be an option for the “au naturale” moms, it can be an option for those who really are against the idea of using glass bottles. We used Born Free Glass Bottle without any chips or breakage, but I know some who get nervous at the idea of mixing baby with something breakable. Just another option in regards to providing safer bottles for infants. Since FDA won’t do it; the writer’s at Eco Child’s Play will.

I was reading your post on our new bottle. I see that you stated it says anti-colic, or colic reducing and you are pretty numb to that phrase. I agree with you on that. Every bottle says reduces colic. Ours truly is though! 🙂
Our Silicone Bottle is actually collapsable, similar to a drop in. Also, we do not have a ventilation system…we have the opposite. We want parents to squeeze the air out because our specially designed nipple will not let the air in. If no air is allowed in the bottle, no air will get into Baby’s belly from the bottle. That actually is a great way to reduce colic.
Thank you so much for your wonderful post! I hope I cleared up any issues you had with our wording choice.
Please feel free to contact me anytime!

this looks great! I nursed my first child for 18 months, but being a working-outside-the-home mom, and a mom who needs some time to herself on occasion to function properly, my son had expressed breastmilk from bottles a lot. this was prior to everything about BPA becoming widely known, and although we never microwaved or even washed our Dr. Brown’s bottles in the dishwasher, I’ve been thinking about replacing them for baby #2 (on the way this summer).
We’ll definitely be checking these out!
I was waiting in these bottles to come out and bought them as soon as they did. At first I was very happy with the bottles, they really are great…the ones that work anyway. I don’t know why but it seems as though all of the bottles are not made the same. When you try tightening the top on some of them a bump on the nipple prevents it to do so properly and the top will either just keep spinning or pop off and create a total mess when you try to squeeze the air out. Though two bottles out of the 3 pack I received did work properly and you could tighten them as much as you want without a problem, I was still dissapointed due to my problems with the other one. I called Prince Lionheart and they replaced the one which had the problem quickly but the one they sent me did the same thing. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE my Prince Lionheart bottles….I just wish I could LOVE all of them the same. This flub with some of the bottles is frustrating to say the least. But I still reccomend the bottles that work correctly 5 out 5 stars.
i think this product is great.. im expecting my second child soon but i still have not decided which brand to get. i was using avent for my first child but then im thinking of switching to another brand because of the bpa issues. im torn between born free, dr. brown or price lionheart. help..

I just bought my first Prince Lionheart Bottle and love it. I’ve tried MoMo, Dr Browns, Playtex drop-ins, and Evenflo. The silicon bottle by Prince Lionheart is my favorite! It is easy to fill, easy to clean and my baby boy seems to like the nipple by this company (although it would be nice if the ring fit standard nipple sizes). And until I read about silicon, I didn’t realize it is an element and doesn’t melt until it reaches over 1400ºC. So I feel really good about my boy drinking from this bottle. Definitely going to buy more.
I agree with you!Silicone is called organic silicone,but its components is SiO2 and H2O compound ,which is really non-toxic and healthy to body.
