Giveway of New BPA Free Bottles

Bookmark and Share

UPDATE: And the winner is… Jennifer B who wrote about wanting the bottles for her sister.
I love it when I find eco-conscious bottles. So here’s a new one...MilkBank. Brought to you by a company called DexBaby, MilkBank has insulated feeding bottles, a vacuum storage system for breast milk and vented feeding bottles. They will be coming out with a breast pump shortly. The company says all of these products are free of lead, phthalates, PVC and BPA.
Since my breastfeeding days are over, I wasn’t able to test these bottles out for you. But I did email with a childbirth educator friend who says she actually loves the bottles.
MilkBank says their storage system is unique because you can use a special pump to remove oxygen from the bottle of milk, and thus prevent the milk from spoiling. This is the first I’ve heard about oxygen causing milk to spoil. So I’m still in the process of figuring out how to evaluate this claim. But here’s what the company has to say about it.
In the meantime, here’s a link on Kellymom to on guidelines for storing milk.
And now… last but not least… I’m giving away a set of these bottles. To enter leave a comment here on why you want or need them. I’ll pick the winner. You must be a U.S. citizen to enter. The deadline is February 18th.

I WANT these bottles because they are better for the son I will have in July.
I NEED these bottles because I will have to go back to work when he is about 4 months old, and I won’t have the luxury of staying home with him like I did with my daughter. :(
I hope I still will the closeness I did with my daughter through nursing full time, even though he will be getting a bottle some of the time.

I want these bottles b/c my friend R adores them and she’s pretty savvy when it comes to baby products. I need them because I keep losing breastmilk to spoilage and it breaks my heart- I work so hard for that milk!

Although I am no longer breastfeeding my daughter, my little sister is now pregnant. She has an anxiety disorder and was molested as a child. She has a fear of breastfeeding, but is willing to pump to give her baby breastmilk. I am doing all that I can to encourage her to give her child breastmilk, even if its not in the typical way. These bottles will be a great start for her milk storage and giving her child expressed milk. She’s come a long way in a few weeks (from insisting on an elective section and refusing to even discuss breastfeeding to accepting vaginal birth and entertaining the thought of exclusive pumping), and these bottles may help and encourage her to try something that makes her a little uncomfortable. Who knows, maybe I can even get her comfortable with nursing!

I would love to get these! One of our families New Year Resolutions was to try to be more “green” and these sound perfect! Also, I just started back to work and my 6mo old doesn’t care very much for the bottles I have – maybe he would like these…
Love your blog! Thanks!

I am currently breastfeeding my 4 month old daughter and working full time. She is bottle fed my expressed milk while at daycare. I would love to have these bottles so that she will have a safe bottle to drink from, knowing it does not contain any of the yucky stuff in the plastic. It would also be more “green” for the environment, which I am trying to be more aware of since I have two children. I would love to give these a try and possibly try their storage system, as well. Thanks for introducing us to a great, new product!

I am due soon (March 1st!), and will have to go back to work shortly after the birth of the baby in order to make ends meet. I was given a breast pump, and I’m planning to pump while I work so that my baby is exclusively breastfed. This sounds like an amazing system, and would be so wonderful to have! Thanks for the opportunity!

Oxygen causes everything to spoil… at least, spoilage by means of aerobic bacteria. That’s why canning and jarring preserves food.
I’m a soon-to-be childbirth instructor, and if I win these bottles I will give them away to my students.

My daughter was born three weeks ago today, and didn’t take to the breast (she’s a lazy sucker, even on the bottle) so I am pumping round the clock for her, and want to keep my “liquid gold” safer for her, longer.

Breastfeeding for me has been my EVEREST and I’m not even exaggerating. Every single meager drop I get out is precious and I’d love a way to keep it as fresh as I can for my peanut.
Thanks!

I need a new storage system because of a breakdown in my effort to share the wealth.
I’m nursing #2 and have, this time, and when a friend got an adoption placement and asked for milk donations, I packed up the freezer and took the contents along to our out of town meetup.
Unfortunately, her pediatrician said no to donated milk, and we haven’t been able to id a new person to take the milk. It’s stuck in a freezer in a city 800 miles from where I live.
I’m now down the vast majority of my Mother’s Milkmate bottles. Which I hesitate to replace, what with my continued unemployment.
