The best baby bottles 2020 are the ones that your baby will take with ease. As we all know babies have big personalities and what might be the best baby bottle option for your friends baby, may not work for yours. Having said that, we will give you several great baby bottle options, as well as tips and tricks for helping make sure you pick the best baby bottle for your baby!
Here are some things to consider Before buying your babys bottles:
It is most likely that your baby does not like the nipple, not the actual bottle itself. You can use our Baby Bottle/ Nipple Compatibility Chart to see if there are other brands of nipples that will fit onto your baby bottles. This is a quick, cost effective way to keep your current baby bottles.
The stainless steel Pura baby bottles and sippy cups are a great alternative to plastic. If you have decided to stay clear of any plastic baby and sippy bottles, and now you are on the hunt for a stainless steel baby bottle that can also be used as a sippy cup, Pura baby bottles are the bottle you have been looking for.
In general, I tend to lead parents to a hybrid style bottle that will grow with their child. In other words, a baby bottle that can then easily also be used as a sippy bottle. For glass, I usually steer parents to the Lifefactory glass bottles (I will write more about Lifefactory soon). And for a stainless steel hybrid bottle, Pura is the way to go.
Pura designed their line of baby and toddler bottles with a few simple concepts in mind featuring:
Yes, you can, but as a lot of parents find out over time, your baby or toddler may tend to prefer a brand of nipple or sippy spouts over another. So instead of having to spend your money and time looking for a perfect fit, Pura makes it easy.
Pura bottles come in either a 5oz. or 11oz baby bottle size or an 11oz. sippy size. There are even some fun sealing disks that can turn the bottle into a great storage container for snacks while on the go. Below is a chart of all of the nipple and sippy tops that are compatible with the Pura bottles.

Minnesota has become the first state to legislate a ban on Bisphenol-A (BPA) in baby bottles and sippy cups.
Interestingly, but not surprisingly, the FDA continues to maintain the chemical is safe.
Other states (California, Connecticut) are set to follow suit and this precedent by Minnesota will only serve to make further bans more likely. Canada has already banned BPA from numerous baby and toddler products.
Unfortunately, even in Minnesota, you’ll still have to wait until 2010 before the ban goes into effect.
While we applaud these efforts we must point out that most (all?) proposed bans target only a very small range of products used by infants and the youngest of children. Important product categories such as feeding and food storage containers, amongst others, are still not being addressed, not to mention the continuing risk of BPA in older children.
