OWEN TECH: The new bottles

This post is: 

Owen got an upgrade! We've ordered these bottles by 'born free' which are a bit different than the run of the mill bottles. They have a very nice vent system, which Owen really appreciates, but the real difference is in the materials used to make the bottles. Most bottles are made from a run-of-the-mill polycarbonate plastic, most of which contains something called bisphenol-a. Now... some recent research has shown that the little bit of bisphenol-a that leaches out into fluids isn't the best thing for little people. (It's a little confusing to know which bottles contain this chemical, but since it's a somewhat controversial issue, most of the companies that are bisphenol free let you know.)

These Born Free bottles are free of bisphenol-a, which gives them a slight bronze tint. You can't really see it in this photo, but the tint is there. They come highly recommended!
