Which S-bottle should I choose for my baby?
Of course, you want the very best anti-colic baby bottle for your baby. Choose your bottle! With the Difrax S-bottle, your baby will suffer as little as possible from intestinal cramps, burping and throwing up. The ergonomic S-shape ensures that you feed your baby in a relaxed and comfortable position. But one question remains unanswered: which type of S-bottle is most suitable for your baby? We’re here to help you make the right choice.
The Natural and Wide S-bottle
The Difrax S-bottle comes in two types: Natural and Wide.
The Natural S-bottle for your baby
Your baby will quickly accept the Natural S-bottle thanks to the small bottle teat, making it the most popular baby bottle. The slim design ensures that the Natural S-bottle is easy to hold.
The Wide S-bottle for your baby
The Wide S-bottle has a bigger bottle teat. This is especially suitable for babies who prefer a wide latch, as they open their mouth a bit more. The Wide S-bottle is available in two sizes: 200 ml and 310 ml. The Wide S-bottle 310 ml has the largest capacity and is therefore the ideal follow-up bottle.
Which capacity should I choose for my baby bottle?
The Natural S-bottle comes in 170 ml and 250 ml, the Wide S-bottle comes in 200 ml and 310 ml. The smallest sizes (170 ml and 200 ml) are mostly used in early on, just after birth. After a while, your baby will start to drink more. That’s when you can switch to the Natural 250 ml or the Wide 310 ml S-bottle. The Wide 310 ml bottle is also available as a porridge bottle. The follow-up bottles of the same type differ only in capacity
Difrax porridge bottle XL
Most babies love a porridge bottle as a change from their ordinary bottle of milk. Also, milk porridge keeps the baby’s tummy satisfied just a bit longer. For this reason, Difrax designed a special porridge bottle. The porridge bottle XL is suitable for 310 ml of porridge and has an extra-large bottle teat. The XL bottle has wide opening, which makes it suitable for thick porridge. With the handles supplied, your child can easily hold the bottle and drink on its own. The porridge bottle can be used from about nine months.
Which material should I choose for my baby’s S-bottle?
The standard S-bottles for your baby are made of polypropylene. This is a safe, relatively hard and therefore a very strong and sturdy material. It’s also BPA-free and does not include softeners. Polypropylene comes in a wide variety of colors, so S-bottles always look fun and trendy.
The glass S-bottles for your baby are made of durable borosilicate glass. This type of glass is lightweight, safe and durable. Borosilicate glass can withstand large temperature differences and is therefore also used in laboratories. The sturdy glass prevents damage or scratches in which bacteria can nest. This gives the glass S-bottle an extra-long lifespan. The sturdy glass is impact-resistant but not unbreakable.
Recyclable materials in the S-bottle
Both materials are fully recyclable. Polypropylene can be put directly in the plastic waste and borosilicate glass can be taken to a waste collection facility. Difrax has made a conscious choice to use sustainable materials. Want to know more? Go to the “We Care” page.
