Giveaway: Silikids Products for Babies


In my upcoming book, Boosting Your Baby’s Brain Power, I discuss studies showing a possible link between bisphenol-a (BPA), a chemical that is commonly used in plastic baby bottles, and cancers and reproductive problems later in life. A report issued by the U.S. National Toxicology Program said there was “some concern for neural and behavioral effects in fetuses, infants and children at current human exposures.” And Health Canada has said that BPA is particularly harmful to infants. We don’t have conclusive evidence that BPA is harmful -- and industry insiders insist that it is safe -- but if there are alternatives available, why not do your own research and consider them?

Giuliana Schwab and Stacey Feeley are two moms who turned their concerns about BPA in baby products into action. They founded a company called Silikids, which produces a unique line of products that are germ-, mold- and toxin-free, hypoallergenic and made entirely of silicone! A non-porous material made from sand, silicone is an ideal solution for addressing parents’ concerns about BPA in their children’s products. So far, the Silikids collection includes:

Siliskins: silicone sleeves for 4- and 8-ounce bottles (glass bottles included)
Silibibs: soft and easy-to-clean bibs made entirely of silicone
Silipads: stylish silicone kneepads for crawlers and toddlers

I was able to obtain a sample of all of these products, and I fell in love with them! All the products are available in four great colors. The bibs are super-soft, flexible and easy to clean. The bottle sleeves have little bumps that make them easy to hold so they won’t slip out of your hands, and holes on the side so you can see how much liquid is left in the bottle. And the silipads…you have got to see these adorable little knee pads!

How do you get your own Silikids products? Just order online at http://www.silikids.com! Even if you’re done having babies, these products make fabulous gifts for new eco-conscious moms who are concerned about their babies’ exposure to plastic products.

You can also win a free set of Silikids products! This set includes: 1 silibib (green), 1 siliskin (green) with accompanying 8-ounce glass bottle and silicone nipple, 1 siliskin (green) for a 4-ounce bottle (bottle not included), and two silipads in orange. To enter the drawing, visit http://www.silikids.com to see the products and leave a comment here indicating which product and color is your favorite. One entry per person please. One winner will get the set I described above. Deadline: Sunday, November 16, 2008 at Midnight EST.

    The bottle liners would be perfect for my new grand daughter as I'd know she is protected from those unnecessary chemicals in the plastic!
