2008 was the year that changed the baby bottle. Glass Bottles made a come back, bottles with BPA were removed from the shelves and Silicone made it’s debut.This year at ABC a few companies introduced bottles made of this amazing material.Silicone is perfect because it has no open pores to harbor bacteria. It is free of BPA , Latex, Phthlate, PVC and lead.

Bottles made from this material are flexible except for the BPA-free plastic exo-skeleton, which is placed over the neck and shoulders of the bottle.

They are also heat-resistant, microwavable, shatterproof and dishwasher safe.

Four companies have created bottle made of Silicone.

    I live in Onatrio Canada and the Nuby soft air silicone bottle are for sale at Sears. I have two and the built in vent leaks and even with the slow flow nipple the milk shoots out gagging my 12 month old bottle fed son.
    I can’t see this bottle working for a breast fed baby.
