Feeding time.

A baby bottle design to prevent infants from swallowing excessive amounts of air is sure to be welcomed by parents everywhere. The BubbleFree bottle, from Wynnovations, Inc., features an angled neck that helps fill the entire nipple with milk rather than air. The design also encourages babies to drink in an upright position, which improves swallowing control.

Makrolon MPG-3408 polycarbonate resin is used for the bottles, providing good resistance to breakage and a high-quality, glass-like appearance. The packaging-grade thermoplastic, which is recyclable, is also said to have the heat resistance necessary to withstand dishwashers and microwave ovens.

Baby bottles made of plastics, and in particular polycarbonate, have caught on rapidly during the past decade as a lightweight, shatter-resistant alternative to glass.
