Made with babies and parents in mind, they’re easy to hold, hard to damage and dishwasher safe.
A: All organicKidz®products are BPA free. BPA (bisphenol A) is a chemical that is added to plastic in order to make it stronger. BPA has been linked to a number of health concerns including endocrine disruption, some types of cancers, attention deficit disorder and increased risk of heart attack.
Q: Are your bottles free of PVC’s and Phthalates? Show Answer
A: All organicKidz®products are free of PVC’s and Phthalates. PVC’s and Phthalates are also known to be harmful to children’s health.
Q: Will my child get a metallic taste in their mouth when drinking from organicKidz®stainless steel bottles?Show Answer
A: No. Bottles made of lower quality metals can result in the fluid inside getting a metallic taste. organicKidz® uses food grade type 304 18/8 stainless steel for our products. This is the same stainless steel that is used in kitchen cutlery and will not taint the contents.
Q: Are there other advantages of stainless steel that I should be aware of?Show Answer
A: 304 18/8 stainless steel has a number of advantages over plastic, glass and aluminum including:
Unlike glass, stainless steel will not shatter, and expose your child to potentially dangerous glass shards
Unlike some plastics, stainless steel does not leach harmful chemicals when heated
Unlike aluminum, stainless steel does not require a liner to protect your children from potentially harmful elements – stainless steel does not leach, it’s made of natural elements
Unlike glass or plastic bottles, stainless steel is very difficult to scratch thereby preventing potentially harmful bacteria from hiding in your child’s bottle
Unlike glass or plastic, the temperature inside a single hulled stainless steel baby bottle is essentially the same as the temperature on the outside of the bottle – this built in safety feature allows you to always know the temperature of the liquid so it’s not too hot for your baby
A: organicKidz® bottles are naturally bacteria resistant. To sterilize, use only a baby products sterilizer and remove the bottles once they have cooled by the threads. This will help to maintain the designs.
Q: Are organicKidz® bottles dishwasher safe?Show Answer
A: organicKidz® baby bottles are dishwasher safe on the top rack. We do recommend hand washing as this will increase the longevity of the designs.
Q: Can I put the bottles into the microwave?Show Answer
A: It is not recommended that you heat any baby bottle in the microwave as the contents can heat unevenly. This can be dangerous for your baby.
A: All that is needed to heat your organicKidz® stainless steel bottle is a glass of hot tap water or a bottle warmer. Your organicKidz® baby bottle will heat up more quickly than glass or plastic does.
Q: I am concerned that the stainless steel will get too hot for my child.Show Answer
A: Unlike glass or plastic, single hulled stainless steel lets you feel the temperature of the bottle contents. This means that simply by holding an organicKidz® single hulled bottle you will know if the liquid inside is too hot for your child. This is one of the many great safety features of stainless steel! Stainless steel will also cool down faster after cleaning or sterilizing, making it ready to use faster.
Q: How do I know how much liquid is in my stainless steel bottle? Show Answer
A: There are several ways to measure of the amount of liquid in your organicKidz®bottle:
All organicKidz® baby bottle lids are a 2oz/ 60ml measuring cup. This is ideal for measuring and mixing formula or breast milk.
All of our single hulled bottles have a scale stamped on the side of the bottle. If you pour 2oz/60mL of warm or cool liquid in the bottle, you will feel warmth or coolness at the 2oz/60mL line.
The scale stamped onto the bottle can also be seen from the inside. Simply open the bottle to check how much liquid is inside.
You can also use a measuring cup to measure in and out if preferred
A: Yes. All of our lids are made of stainless steel. A function of stainless steel is that it expands and contracts when heated or cooled. If your lid is loose, place it on its side on a flat surface. Push down gently until you get the desired fit. If you push too far, simply turn the lid around and push down again.
A: organicKidz® is proud to have the world’s first thermal baby bottle in our 9oz/ 270ml narrow necked bottle. Liquids can be kept hot or cold for over 6 hours. Our 11oz thermal wide mouthed bottle is coming soon.
Q: My bottle ring broke, can I still use my bottle?Show Answer
A: BPA is a chemical that is used to make plastics stronger. Plastics without BPA can be more susceptible to breaking if thrown or dropped on a hard surface. organicKidz® replacement rings can be purchased from a variety of organicKidz® retailers or from our website. If you’re unable to locate a retailer in your area, please feel free to contact us directly at info@organicKidz.caor 403-201-2585*Please note if you purchased a narrow necked organicKidz®9oz Thermal Baby Bottle with a stamp CN12/11 on the bottom, you will need to contact organicKidz®directly to purchase a replacement ring.
Q: Does organicKidz® offer a Sippy Cup as well?Show Answer
A: All our bottles convert to a Sippy Cup when your child is ready. Simply remove the nipple and replace it with an organicKidz® sippy spout. Your child will still be using the same drinking container they did as a baby, so the transition to a Sippy Cup will be easier. Our goal is to provide you with a bottle that will grow with your child from birth to toddler and beyond.
Q: Do allorganicKidz®bottles turn into Water Bottles?Show Answer
A: Yes, all our bottles convert to both Sippy Cup and Water Bottle by simply changing the top. Remove the nipple or sippy spout and replace it with our sealing disk and your bottle is ready to go as a Water Bottle in your child’s lunchbox or use our thermal bottles as a “To Go” bottle for your coffee, tea or other beverage.
A: Yes, our bottles are made from stainless steel, so they are 100% recyclable. However, because they are stainless steel, they can be passed down to other children and won’t need recycling!
Q: My wide mouth lid is hard to get off the bottle.Show Answer
A: The easiest way to remove the lid is to twist the lid clockwise and pull.
Q: Should I use my organicKidz® lid when I am using the bottle stopper?Show Answer
A: Yes, we recommend that you always use your lid with our bottle stoppers, nipples or sippy spouts. The lid will ensure that the surface remains clean for your child. By preventing other objects from push against the stopper, the lid will also help prevent accidental leakage.
