What should we pay attention to when choosing silicone products for our baby?

Almost every household will have one or two children. Similarly, we all pay great attention to the healthy growth of children. When choosing milk bottles for our children, generally, we will choose silicone milk bottles. Of course, this is because it has conquered us with all kinds of advantages. So what should we pay attention to when choosing silicone products?
If we want our baby to grow up healthily, we must strictly prevent “diseases from entering the mouth”. We should not only ensure the safety of the food itself, but also ensure the cleanliness of the tableware. Not only the baby’s bottle, pacifier, bowl, spoon, etc., but also toys. As long as they may be put into the baby’s mouth, their safety can not be ignored.
So how to ensure the safety of BB tableware and utensils? Most people only know cleaning and disinfection, ignoring the fundamental – material safety. BB products can generally use plastic, silica gel, stainless steel and other fall resistant materials, while most “imported” products use silica gel, such as silica gel bottle, silica gel pacifier and silica gel toothbrush… Why do these common “imported” BB products choose silica gel? Are other materials unsafe? Now we will explain one by one for you.
The bottle is the first “tableware” for a newborn baby. It is not only used for feeding, but also for drinking water or other granules.
In fact, milk bottles are not necessarily silicone. In terms of material, milk bottles are roughly divided into three categories: glass milk bottles, plastic milk bottles and silicone milk bottles; Among them, plastic bottles include PC bottles, PP bottles, PES bottles, PPSU bottles and other categories. It is generally recommended that babies aged 0-6 months choose glass milk bottles; After 7 months, when the baby can drink with the bottle, choose a safe and fall resistant silicone bottle.
Among the three types of milk bottles, glass is the safest, but it is not resistant to falling. So the question is, why should we choose silicone bottles instead of plastic bottles for our baby after 7 months?
The first is, of course, security.
Silicone nipples are generally transparent and food grade materials; The rubber pacifier is yellow, and the sulfur content is easy to exceed the standard, which is a potential risk of “disease entering from the mouth”.
In fact, both silica gel and plastic are very fall resistant. The soft hardness of silica gel is moderate and the hand feel is better. Therefore, apart from glass bottles, bottles generally tend to buy food grade silica gel.
The pacifier is the part that really touches the baby’s mouth, so the material requirements are higher than the bottle. The pacifier can be made of silica gel and rubber. When selecting materials, we should not only ensure safety, but also better realize the softness of the pacifier. Therefore, most people will choose silica gel.
Silicone has excellent softness, especially liquid silicone, which can be stretched and tear resistant, and has better shaping effect for products. In addition, the softness of silica gel can highly imitate the touch of mother’s nipple and soothe the baby’s mood. The rubber will be hard, so it is difficult to achieve this effect. Therefore, baby pacifiers, whether standard for feeding bottles or independent pacifiers, mostly use liquid silica gel as the raw material.

Silicone milk bottle is made of liquid silica gel, non-toxic and tasteless, which can be used as food grade; However, in order to achieve good product characteristics, plastics need to add a large number of antioxidants, plasticizers and stabilizers, which will be harmful to human body. The second is property stability. Because milk bottles should be cleaned and disinfected frequently, silica gel has stable properties, acid and alkali resistance, heat resistance (- 60 ° C-200 ° C) and moisture resistance; However, the stability of plastics is slightly poor, and harmful substances may be decomposed under high temperature (such as PC material).
