Silikids Siliskin Bottle Covers
We have compared and reviewed baby bottles on this blog. But we forgot to recommend Silikids Siliskin. If you use a glass baby bottle such as the Evenflo Classic Clear glass nurser simply slide on the custom silikids silicone sleeve. The innovative sleeve allows babies to grab hold and avoid slippage when feeding from a glass bottle encased in a colorful siliskin. It is microwave safe, keeps heat from transferring from bottle to hands, hypo allergenic, and dishwasher safe. This translucent silicone sleeve allows you to see measurements and liquid in the bottle.
Cleaner than any plastic, glass bottles are the best. The secret is silicone. It is safe, pliable, and stylish. Due to recent concerns regarding BPA, many parents are switching to BPA Free children’s products. Silicone offers just that solution. Silicone does not contain toxic chemicals like bisphenol-A, lead, PVC, and phthalates.
Silikids Universal Wideneck Large Siliskin, Yellow is basically made up of silicon, a natural element present in sand, quartz and rock, which, after oxygen, is the most abundant element on earth. Silicon is transformed into silicone when combined with oxygen, carbon and hydrogen. Because it is an inert material, it does not react with food or beverages, or produce any hazardous fumes. It’s non-toxic, hypo allergenic, does not promote bacteria or fungus growth, and it does not transmit taste to food.
Silicone does not decompose but it is recyclable -- although probably not through your city-wide recycling program. There are many specialty recycling facilities that recycle silicone. (Send your Silikids products back to the company and they will recycle it for you!) Silicone is very durable so you won’t have to worry about disposal for a long time, thus promoting reuse and less waste.
