Frequently Asked Questions about Wee-go Glass Baby Bottles

1. What are the bottle sleeves made out of?
The sleeves are made out of 100% silicone, which is non-toxic and has been well researched.

2. Why are they so expensive?
Silicone is much more expensive than plastic to produce and manufacture.

3. What kind of nipple is on the Wee-go bottle?
The silicone nipples are manufactured in France. The company was established in 1972 and they are the leading suppliers of nipples in France and distributed throughout Europe and the world. These nipples are Stage 2 for 3-6 months.

4. Will Wee-go carry other stage nipples?
Yes, they are considering selling the Stage 1 nipple for 0-3 months, Stage 3 for 6+ months and a multiflow nipple that can be used at different ages, a nipple that is a best-seller in France and England.

5. Will other nipples fit this bottle?
Yes, any standard size nipple (not wide neck nipples) will fit on the Wee-go bottle.

6. Do you sell the sleeves separately? Do they fit on other bottles?
No, we don't sell the sleeves separately and they fit snugger and better on Wee-go bottles.

7. How do I wash the bottle and its parts?
You may boil or place the bottle and sleeve together in the dishwasher, especially to sterilize. You can hand wash or put the nipple on the top rack of the dishwasher. It is recommended to hand wash the cap, ring and plug as boiling can cause distortion.

Babylife is concerned about plastics that leach chemicals. Typically these chemicals are what makes plastics hard. They are using softer plastics to avoid these chemicals and they may not be able to take very high temperatures. That is the reason why we recommend hand washing these parts.

8. Do you take the sleeve off to wash the bottle?
No, you can actually leave the sleeve on the bottle and wash the whole thing in the dishwasher. It comes out clean quite nicely. If you wish to take the sleeve off, it comes off best in warm, soapy water.

9. Where are your bottles made?
The bottles and sleeves are made in China with supervision from a team Babylife has contracted from the U.S. to make sure they use FDA approved materials. The nipple is made in France.

10. What safety certifications do you have?
Babylife is very concerned about infant safety. They have voluntarily had their bottles safety and integrity tested by an independent third party lab, Bureau Veritas. The bottles are in compliance with the requirements of 16 CFR 1500 in the United States and also are certified for the European Union. The nipples are CE certified.
