The guide is available free of charge on the BabyGearLab website:
Dr. Spurrier, founder of BabyGearLab, said about the buying advice article, “The number of decisions first-time parents need to make regarding their baby can be overwhelming. Even a topic as seemingly simple as choosing the right baby bottle turns out to be very complicated when you consider the more than 30 competing products on the market. We set out to create an educational guide that breaks down the decision-making process across five criteria, each of which prioritized and provided performance ratings for each top baby bottle.”
For example, the buying advice guide covers baby bottle nipples in detail, explaining the different types of nipples, the safety considerations with different nipple materials, why the flow rating of a nipple is important, and how to choose the right nipple for your baby. In addition, the guide makes specific recommendations for nipples that the review editors at BabyGearLab believe are the very best available.
BabyGearLab links the buying advice guide to a related article entitled, “Are Plastics Safe for Baby Bottles and Sippy Cups?” which provides information and research on the safety of plastic bottles, while exploring the question of whether even BPA-free plastics are safe.
To further help parents choose the right baby bottle, BabyGearLab presents a detailed summary of its editors’ baby bottle testing results and ratings of 17 of today’s top baby bottles, which can be found here:
Juliet Spurrier, MD, established BabyGearLab.com with a goal of creating a free, high-quality information resource for new mothers and caregivers. The site’s editors rigorously test and rate baby products to help parents find the best for their baby. While practicing medicine in the Bay Area and pregnant with her first child, Dr. Spurrier found herself overwhelmed with the baby product decision-making process. After the birth of her second child, she decided to create a resource for others that she wished existed when she first became a mother.
