Baby bottle suppliers beef up utility, safety features

 

Baby bottles that have temperature indicators and anti-colic designs are gaining traction.

 

TOP TRENDS

  • Functional add-ons: To increase product usability, several makers are attaching temperature indicators such as LED and color-changing thermometers on models. Music ICs and flashing LEDs may also be placed on the bottom of the bottle to help entertain and calm down babies.
  • Health-friendly design: Angled-neck bottles are gaining traction as these ensure that the nipple is filled mostly with liquid rather than air. This is to prevent gas problems and ear infections. Similarly, suppliers are adopting angled and flat-tip nipples that are said to reduce the risk of colic.
  • PC now low-end: With increased restrictions on BPA, demand for PC bottles has dropped even further. Upscale models for the EU, the US, Japan, Australia, Canada, South Africa, Brazil and Malaysia now use safer PP, PES, PPSU, silicone, glass and stainless steel. The toxic chemical was even recently banned in China. PC is now found only in low-end items for less stringent markets.
  • PP & glass dominate: Together, the two materials account for 70 percent of output in the line. They are favored for their lower cost and BPA-free quality. In addition, glass can resist heat and abrasion, while PP is lightweight.
