Is Plastic Baby Bottles Safe?
Plastic baby bottles made of Polypropylene or Poly-amide are safe. Most baby bottles or accessories are now made of this material.

Don't forget to read the manufacturer's guide before beginning to understand how to use it safely.
If you are going to choose a plastic feeding bottle for your baby, you may try to look for packaging that says that the bottle is BPA, Phthalates, and PVC free. When you first purchase your baby's bottle, wash it with soap and water, and then put it in some boiling water for about five minutes.
• If you are going to use a plastic bottle you must find a BPA Free one.
• Glass bottles are more expensive than plastic or silicon bottles. However, glass bottles are heavy and breakable, could be dangerous if dropped or cracked.
• It would be a smart decision to buy nipples along with bottles in starter sets.
Newborn bottle sets include all things needed to get started. Most babies are picky about nipples. You should buy a variety of nipples at first, once you find out your baby's favorite you can buy more.
When selecting the nipple to use for your bottle, you must look closely at the packaging. They may look similar but not at a closer examination.
You are going to find that there is a "Flow Rate" labeled on the different types of nipples. The "Flow Rate" is important. They are either going to be Slow – Medium – or Fast.
Depending on the age of your baby, you are going to select what is appropriate. For a newborn, you want to have a newborn nipple. That nipple is going to let the milk come out slower, so the baby does not choke or gag.
If you find that your baby is choking on the nipple when you are feeding her or him, check, you may have a nipple that is too fast. You may want to feed him/her more appropriately – which is why the manufacturers produce nipples with different flow rates.
