    Default Australian made baby bottles

    Hi Everyone,
    In light of the Nanna's berry Hep A Scare I started looking at where things are made and was horrified to find that all the bottles I am feeding my toddler with are all made in China and Thailand.
    I then had a look in Coles and Woolies and again nothing Australian made.
    Major Pharmacy's the same. I then spoke to a Chinese Mum at Mothers group and she said that Chinese mothers don't use Chinese made bottles and dummies. She buy's a brand called Grow which is made in Melbourne. I tracked them down at Baby Bunting and the sales lady said they are all hospital and food grade plastic and they are actually cheaper than the Chinese bottles that I have been using.
    I have now changed to Grow and thrown out all the others.

    I have been to China so I know what it is like there. Therefore I never buy food that are produced in China. However, for other products, sometimes I have no choice because I can't find any that are made locally or made elsewhere. Good to know that there are Australian made bottles. Thank you for the information.

    Interesting. I actually used grow bottles. I've used a lot of brands cause we had issues with her latching.

    It's funny how different countries have their "guild lines" or "things" in Greece they don't recommend plastic bottles, the mums I seen had glass bottles.

    I just find it amazing and I say it all the time. I think we are pretty strict with our guild lines.
