What kind of feeding bottle should you use for your baby?
When a family is happy for the newborn, there is a very real problem in front of them: How to feed a child. Except for natural feeding method, using a feeding bottle is also a choice.

Now many brands will choose such plastic extruder to produce corresponding products for them.
Many parents are afraid that plastic bottle will be harmful to their children, but if used properly, it will bring a lot of convenience to the entire parenting stage.

So now every country has ordered the production of this material to be banned.
PP Material: PP bottles are favored by parents because of high chemical stability, not easy to break, good hygienic performance and high heat resistance. Microwave tableware is generally a plastic PP product. Poor hardness, non wear resistance is its shortcoming.
PES Material: PES has excellent heat and chemical resistance, dimensional stability. It can resist heat at 180°C and doesn’t produce bisphenol A when heated, and the bottle body is light. The residual milk in the bottle is not easy to clean and is replaced once every six to eight months.
PPSU Material: PPSU is an amorphous thermoplastic with high transparency and hydrolytic stability. The product can be subjected to repeated steam sterilization.
Further than that the bottle is light, resistant to falling, not easy to break, brewing or steam sterilization is not easy to produce chemical toxins, doesn’t contain endocrine-causing carcinogenic chemicals (environmental hormone bisphenol A), heat resistance 180 °C, microwave heating.
