    My son would love too drink home squeezed orange juice out of the Twist N’Pop straw cups, he makes play time out of the cups he uses. he likes too pretend they are air planes, trains, and horses. the only problem with that is the cups he likes too play with leak, this getting one of these cups would be a win-win for both him and me.

  • patricia alner said:

    My daughter refused every sippy cup that I had given her. My girlfriend told me that her daughter liked the Bornfree trainer cups and recommended that I tried them. I was shocked. She is still using them and loves them. I was very thankful to bornfree for creating a product that my daughter would actually use. I have since recommended it to four other friends who were having the same problem and they are sold too!

  • kia said:

    I am new to Born Free so don’t have much of a story, my baby is only 8 weeks old. No one told us about Born Free. My husband and I researched what we thought were the best products for our baby and made sure to register for 2 Born Free glass bottles. I am breastfeeding on demand but we picked up a couple of bottles so I could hand pump and have a little reserve if I needed to leave my babe to teach a yoga class or run an errand. All we have are those 2 bottles and they are serving us well. I am looking forward to my baby’s next step which would be a sippy cup to use as he ages.

  • Emily said:

    I heard about BornFree from Baby Rabies (your sponsorship is working!), and I’m now a huge fan of the Twist ‘n’ Pop cups. My toddler loves them!

  • Melissa said:

    Born Free came 2 me by surprise! I had never heard of them b4. I was pregnant again and starting 2 hear bad things about BPA so I started looking 4 baby/toddler feeding items that were BPA free. And I found Born Free and I became a Born Free mamma and never looked back! Thank u Born Free!

  • meghan said:

    so far the only bornfree products i’ve used are the pacifers and the 9oz BPA free plastic bottles. My favourite is the bottles…I had another brand of glass bottles but they were heavy and my daughter was getting some serious gas and was having reflux issues…switched to these….problems all went away! Thanks BornFree!!

  • stacie said:

    My Little boys love drinking chocolate milk first thing in the morning in there training cups and especially love that they are blue. It makes me feel cool.

  • Heather Smith said:

    I loved the twitter party last night… the onion rings were devine :O)

    My sister asked me to join the BornFree facebook page as a referral. To be honest, I hadn’t tried any of your products. Then I found the twist n pop cup.. they are our favorites!!

  • Anna said:

    I first saw bornfree at babies r us. I love to use the formula dispenser as a snack cup.

  • Megan said:

    I actually heard about born free when I went to a talk by Dr. Greene. I talked to a rep about your products and the advantages and loved how they were truly BPA free and I decided your bottles were the ones I would try. We love them and are now trying (cross our fingers) to move to your training cups.

  • Samantha Ballinger said:

    I learned bout BornFree when I got one of the drinking cups as a giveaway at a MetroMoms event. My daughter loved it and I searched out for more. Then we got the Twist n Pop and fell in love with those which are now my new favorite BornFree product. Thanks for making such great products!!

  • Regina H. said:

    My darling daughter loves to drink ANYTHING out of her BornFree cup!

  • Wendy said:

    I did a lot of research on bottles while I was pregnant and while BornFree is definitely one of the most expensive, I felt like it was still the best bottle for my money. Especially since I could just buy spouts and handles and use them as cups when she got older. We do have one trainer cup though and just keep washing the spout. =) before she is a year old I will go stock up on the drinking spouts.

    My favorite product is the glass bottles. I love the glass more than our plastic ones. They just look so much cleaner and shiny. =)

  • Irene Hopper said:

    I first found out about BornFree when I registered at Babies R Us. Inside our registry gift was a small BornFree plastic BPA free bottle. I breastfed our daughter, but when she went to daycare she needed bottles. This was the first bottle we had for our daughter and after trying out a few other brands that were gifted to us, the BornFree is the only bottle my now 14 month old will use. I have just found out that there are more items than just the bottles. Sippy cups and pacis too! I will need to make a trip back out to BRU and get some sippy cups since our daughter only takes a bottle at nap and bedtime now.

    We LOVE Born Free!

  • julie l said:

    i found them on the web when searching for BPA free bottles for my now 3 1/2 year old. love everything but espec the bottles! they’re healthy and they don’t leak!

  • Marina Secor-Gonzalez said:

    I shared this on facebook!!

  • Marina Secor-Gonzalez said:

    I found them when I was trying to find a sippy that my son would use he will use them all for a few minutes then thats it there they go on the floor. I noticed he liked the shape of the sippy cup nipple and so I purchased it from babies r us and he has LOVED it from day one! I love these sippys and I only have 1 right now so to win more would be AMAZING!! :D

  • Michelle said:

    I love Born Free! I did a ton of research and decided on your bottles. I have not been disappointed!

  • Amber said:

    Our lactation consultant told us about Born Free, she suggested the bottles because the slow flow nipples are truly slow flow and have a wide base. Our daughter uses the bottles and is transitioning to a training VIP now. The glass bottles are our favorite product, as an exclusive pumping mom, I love these!

  • Julie A. said:

    I actually heard of BornFree from the show Tori & Dean. Tori used BornFree bottles on her daughter Stella at the time I was pregnant and did some research and was sold on the line. I not only love the bottles, but I am a huge fan of the trainer cup as my son LOVES it!!

  • Jennifer Moore said:

    I had seen Born Free products at Babies’R'Us, but Baby Rabies really got me interested in looking into Born Free products more closely.

  • Claudia Beal said:

    No one told me about BornFree but as I looked at what bottles we were going to use I loved that I could use glass and also have some plastic for when we were away from home. I settled on BornFree because it was the only glass option with a silicon sleeve. Now that my son just turned one a couple weeks ago we are trying to transition him to the trainer cups, I love that the parts are interchangeable with the bottles.

  • Amanda Cruz said:

    I heard about you through my sister! She uses the sippy cups for her daughter and loves them. I wanted to try the bottles for my baby and it turns out my daughter loves them too! :-)

  • Delora said:

    I’d first learned about Born Free through the blogging community. The name first came up when the BPA findings were becoming public a few years ago, but I was well past the bottle stage at that point. Fast forward to last summer, I was pregnant again and met a women at BlogHer09 who was sponsored by Born Free and sharing information. What a great line of products! So far, baby C loves the chewy teether and pacifiers. Would love to try a training cup now that he’s 7mos and getting interested in the grown up’s cups.

  • Elizabeth Keller said:

    I am part of a Mommy Group that BornFree came and spoke to. I was pregnant with my first at the time, and it really struck a chord with me. I didn’t realize how prevalant BPA was in just about everything, especially what we have for our babies. BornFree made the desicion super easy for me and kept the guesswork out of choosing. I knew whatever I got with the BornFree label was good for my baby. Thanks for keeping us little less stressed with those little ones!

  • Amanda DeLeon said:

    A couple of years ago I reading about BPA and how harmful it was to children. Some people would use another brand that my daughter didn’t like because she liked the wider bottles. My oldest daughter loved them and I continue the trend with my 9 month old. We only use Bornfree bottles, and I would love to try the trainer cup as my little one keeps trying to steal her sister’s big girl cup.

  • Amy Collier-Steinle said:

    We found BornFree when our daughter was displeased with the nipples from the bottles we used with my son. We tried a different bottle brand with similar nipples to yours, but the bottles leaked, and worse, she writhed in pain when she drank from them. Obviously a poor or nonexistant vent system. So, I went on a quest to find a quality bottle with a good vent system that had a nipple as close to the one that she liked as we could find. Lo and behold, it existed in the form of the BornFree bottle. We got the glass ones and LOVE them. There’s something very natural and right about feeding your child from a glass bottle. And since breastfeeding didn’t work out for me (much to my dismay), BornFree has helped ease that pain a little. Now my baby girl can relax while she eats and barely spits up anymore. Thanks!

  • Jennifer Boydon said:

    My husband like the BornFree design so we tried out the sippy cups. Sippy cups have been our favorite and I just love how they’re perfect sized for my little guy’s hands. I’m so happy that I can just change the spout to a nipple when we have another baby.

  • Sarah Martin said:

    In 2008 when I was pregnant with my DD, a friend sent me an article about BPA. I went through and purged all of the bottles, sippy cups, bowls, spoons, pacifier, etc. that were not BPA free. I was left with pretty much nothing and I needed some bottles before she was born. I went to Babies R Us and saw that they had just started selling BornFree products. So I bought a bottle. After my DD was born I breastfed the first couple of months. Then, I decided it was time to introduce the bottle for when I needed to run out and my DH watched her. I tried the BornFree bottle with her and she took it right away. I love that the nipple didn’t collapse. I bought more bottles and have loved them ever since. In May of this year, I had a DS. I introduced him to the BornFree bottle earlier this month and he took it right away as well. I highly recommend this bottle to all of my friends!

  • Jessica said:

    I was desperate to find a bottle that would work for my little man (now 7 months) because he had very bad reflux! I bought pretty much every bottle out there and he hated them all. Then I found a Born Free bottle set at Babies R Us and I thought that it was worth a try. I loved the unique venting system and hoped that Eli would like it too! The first try and he was hooked! He still won’t take any other bottle or sippy! And not only did he like the nipple, the venting system took his reflux almost all the way away! Amazing! I tell all my friends about Born Free!
    I am DEFINITELY a Bron Free Mom!!! :)

  • Katy Galloway said:

    My little girl is 6 months old and may I say Bornfree has helped my daughter in more ways than you might imagine!!! Since my daughter was born she had extremely bad colic and couldn’t even eat for the amount of gas and feeding issues she had. She would scream for hours on end like she was dying. Everyday it would take us almost an hour & half to get a feeding down her because of her stomach trouble. At the time we had tried Avent, Dr.Brown’s, Tommie Tippee & Playtex bottles for a few weeks each. Nothing helped our daughter and the problems continued.

    It got so bad that our baby girl screamed for an entire day straight and barely could eat anything. We ended up taking her to the hospital only to find out that in fact it was just extremely BAD COLIC like her doctors kept telling us!! The head doctor at the University of Kentucky Hospital that was in-charge of our little girl asked us many questions and then she asked what bottles we were using and mentioned that BornFree helped their daughter the most with colic. The next day we stated using Bornfree that we purchased from a BabiesRUs. We noticed improvement within a day and within 2 weeks it was like we had a totally different baby!!!!!!! Her belly was not filled with gas like it once was. The bottle was excellent with venting air and way better at it than any other bottles. Also the writing on the out-side of the bottle has not rubbed off like many of the other brands have even though we have used them for 3 months now. Just ask anyone I know I’m a HUGE ADVOCATE FOR BORNFREE BOTTLES!!! I will always use Bornfree your product is by far the best thing I have ever used with my baby. Thanks for being a huge help my entire family really appreciates it!!!

  • angela tuttle said:

    i was first introduced to born free when my son was a toddler i used the training cups but stopped because he figured out how to spare it everywhere. now enter baby #2, between the extreme colic, and reflux she experienced i was having some postpartum issues and my milk supply was dwindling, so i knew i had to supplement, being an avid breast feeder i felt the look of the born free nipple was most appropriate for supplementing not to mention i think bottles in general are gross and you offered the glass option which i absolutely love! so we started using the bottles i pumped and supplemented with formula and her colic issues vanished, the child i could never get to burp could easily burp after a feeding and was SO much happier. Fast forward 9 months later born free bottles are the only bottles she will take! thank you for making my baby happier!

  • Mel1010 said:

    We were given a Born Free bottle when we registered at Babies R US. I love the wide neck bottles. Easy to hold and clean.

  • Adrian Bruce said:

    I have been petitioning our small town to have recycling bins so that we can recycle. I have also been teaching my children to be energy aware by turning off lights and running water. My daughter will also pick up trash in public and try and find a trash can.

  • Julie A. said:

    What I am doing to help Mother Earth is reusing my own bags anytime I am shopping, recycling whatever I can, eating local and organically, buying organic clothing, walking places more often, and I’m sure a few other things that I can’t think of right now :)

  • Ginger Cleveland said:

    We use cloth diapers and wipes. And since it’s 100+ degrees we have been hanging all of our laundry out to dry.

    I always try to bring my own grocery bags. We recycle when our community does not and use eco friendly light bulbs. In the future, I want to cloth diaper my baby and make own food.

    Thanks for a great week of giveaways!

  • Sarah N said:

    We recycle and try not to waste!

  • Nichole B said:

    I use cloth diapers! When my little guy grows out of them, I pass them on to the next mom in my MOMS Club. I have become a bit of a cloth diaper guru and have converted several friends — better for the earth better for baby! We also have a zero tolerance for disposable cleaning supplies (except TP ;) in our house. Just another use for old diapers.

  • Michelle said:

    I recycle and I use environmentally friendly cleaning products.

  • Wendy said:

    I use cloth diapers, reusable grocery bags, biodegradable cleaning products…I have pretty much eliminated paper products in my home–except TP =)

  • Katy Galloway said:

    I just recently bought some cloth diapers that I’m going to try with my daughter. I’ve also started using glass plates & cups instead of paper ones. I also try to buy products that have recycled materials and ones that are environmentally friendly. :)

  • Amy Collier-Steinle said:

    We are proud users of cloth diapers, biodegradable soaps, a clothes line, and filtered tap water.

  • Mary-Frances C. said:

    We no longer use paper towels. We use reusable cloths for cleaning. We use vinegar and lavender essential oil for cleaning. We moved within walking distance of my daughter’s school, and no longer drive her to and from it. Also, we didn’t purchase a new backpack for school, her backpack from last year is just as good.

    Recycling, cutting back our water and electricity use, and driving as little as possible.

  • Elizabeth Keller said:

    We add something new every month. It’s easy to get a new habit started if you do one thing at a time! This month we’re using less air conditioning. We’re at almost 20 straight days of over 100 degree weather in Texas. WHEW! Love being sweaty while I’m pregnant…

  • stacie said:

    THis is a good question we actually do alot of things to help mother earth. We Switched all the bulbs in our home to compact fluorescent bulbs. We Lowered our home thermostat.
