Aden + Anais

The Glass Baby Bottle is proud to add Aden + Anais to our line of safe products.

Aden + Anais products are never treated with nasty flame retardant chemicals and the fact that they are super soft and luxurious is a definite plus.

The Bamboo Burpy Bibs have a dual function.  Throw it over your shoulder as a burp cloth, or use it as a full coverage bib. Simple, soft and absorbent!

  • Practical; zip from the bottom for easy nighttime changes
  • Breathable; helps reduce the risk of overheating
  • Comfy;  super soft and will continue to soften with every wash

BPA Free Does Not Equal Nontoxic & Safe

As public awareness of the dangers of BPA grows some less than reputable manufacturers have decided to capitalize with technically true, but in our view, deceptive labeling.


Case in point is this 5 gallon water jug from Walmart. While prominently labeled as BPA free, which is commonly held as dangerous, they neglect to mention that a compound (DEHP) commonly found the #3 PVC from which the jug is made is a suspected human carcinogen according to the National Institutes of Health.

Whether any plastics are safe for food or water storage is debatable, but some plastics have been clearly identified as a health risk. No matter what the labeling may state, we recommend avoiding #3, #6 and #7 plastics when used as food or liquid containers.
