Does SippyNipple Save Money?

Save Money

SippyNipple recycles mom's water bottles, helping to save money and the environment.  

Go Green - Recycle Your Water Bottles

Light plastic 8 oz. water bottles are an ideal weight for babies feeding and lighten the diaper bag load. Maternity consultants recommend that you have on hand 10 to 12 clean bottles a day to properly care for your baby; so recycling your disposable water bottles can make your life easier, especially on the go. Reuse your water bottles for babies water, juice or formula and just toss away old bottles SippyNipple fits most leading water bottle brands. 

Nipple Flow

What size is right?

Beginning with a slow flow nipple is ideal for newborns and preemies. As your baby grows, they are ready for faster feeding and a faster flow. SippyNipple offers two sizes custom designed to meet your baby’s needs that are designated by age (3+months and 6+ months). Don’t be concerned if your baby doesn’t exactly follow these guidelines, you may have to play with nipple sizes to find out what works best for your baby. And of course, be sure to mention any feeding issues with your baby’s doctor. The American Pediatric Association recommends that mom's only to give formula or breast milk (not water) to children between the ages of 0 and 6 months.

No Spill – No Mess Nipple

SippyNipples are designed for a perfect universal “no-spill” fit and easily lock on to leading bottled water brands. Plastic water bottles are easily squeezed to remind sleepy babies that they are still feeding.

Nipple Selection

Dr. Mike's SippyNipple comes in two baby nipple sizes: one designed for 3+ months and a larger feeding hole for 6+ months. For teething babies, try Dr. Mike's Toddler Spout engineered specifically for babies teething needs,

Watch your baby’s cues, as they will tell you which nipple is best for them. If your baby seems frustrated while eating it may be that they are ready for a faster flow. If your baby is choking on the fluid or spitting up, it may be that you have too fast a flow and need to switch to a slower flow. The ideal bottle flow allows a few drops to spill out as the bottle is held upside down.

If your baby is ready for a faster flow, but you don't have one handy, simply take a sharp knife and slightly widen the nipple hole. That should do the trick.

BPA

Major US manufacturers are no longer selling plastic bottles that contain BPA, but if you are traveling Internationally, it’s good to know about BPA. The chemical bisphenol A (BPA) was banned by the FDA in the manufacture of all baby bottles. The American Academy of Pediatricians recommends that parents take precautionary methods to reduce BPA exposure. SippyNipple is 100% BPA Free.

  • Avoid clear-plastic baby bottles or containers with the recycling number “7” and the letters “PC” embossed on them, as many may contain BPA.
  • Use certified BPA-Free plastic bottles
  • Choose bottles with the recycle symbols with the number “2” or “5” in them that do not contain BPA
  • Do not boil, microwave or place in the dishwasher polycarbonate bottles that may release BPA when heated.

Care 

Proper Care

Be sure to wash your bottles and nipples after every use with hot water and soap, or in your dishwasher. SippyNipple is top-rack dishwasher safe. Replace nipples with signs of wear or tear. If you’ve been using your nipple for a while, the hole may be cracked and larger. If so, it might be time to replace your nipple as pieces that break off can be a chocking hazard. Inspect nipple and bottles frequently to be sure that they are free of bacteria in the corners and cracks.

See "Use" section for additional care recommendations.
