Key Baby introduces BPA-free infant care line

“We recognized a gap in the marketplace for well-designed, healthy, safe, yet practical baby bottles,” says Steve Schmidt, CEO of Lutz, FL-based Key Baby. “We’ve provided what parents are looking for—BPA-free bottles that are clear, durable, and long-lasting, as well as good for the environment.” BPA, or Bisphenol A, is a compound under scrutiny for its possible safety concerns.

“At the beginning stages of development, we were looking for a material that was BPA-free but also offered design flexibility, clarity, and durability,” adds Schmidt. “There’s really nothing else like Tritan on the market in terms of its processing and property advantages.” The bottles were designed by HLB, Inc. (www.hlb.com).

Key Baby is the first company to process baby bottles with Tritan EX401 copolyester through injection/stretch blow-molding, done by Pretium Packaging (www.pretiumpkg.com). The product line was developed with guidance from Dr. Andrew Weil, a renowned leader in integrative medicine, and tested by pediatricians, lactation consultants, and moms. The Weil Baby bottles and sippy cups feature the AirWave™ one-piece venting system, which reduces or eliminates air bubbles ingested by babies and toddlers to help reduce the risk of colic, gas, and spit-up.
