The idea for using stainless steel for baby's bottles may be a new one for you as indeed it was for us initially so we thought it would be a good idea to publish some frequently asked questions to provide you with some more information. So here goes-
How do I measure liquid correctly in my Green.Kid bottle?
Every Green.Kid bottle has in internal volume marker, showing both ml and oz. Just take a peek inside your bottle and you will see the markers with ease.
What is the best way to clean my stainless steel bottle?
All Green.Kid bottle parts are 100% dishwasher safe on the top rack. All bottle parts and teats may be washed normally using a mild detergent and warm water. Gentle washing of your teats and spouts will ensure the longevity of your silicone. Your bottle and all components must be thoroughly washed and sterilised before first use. Never bleach your teats or bottle parts as this may cause weakening of the silicone or corrosion of your stainless steel.
How do I sterilise my Green.Kid bottle?
Your Green.Kid bottle may be sterilised either in an electric steriliser or with a sterilising solution such as “Milton’s’. Alternatively, you may set your dishwasher to ‘sterilise’ settings. Remember to use the top rack when putting your Green.Kid bottle in the dishwasher. DO NOT BOIL OR MICROWAVE. You should never fill your Green.Kid bottle with boiling or hot water over 38°C. Due to the natural properties of stainless steel, rapid expansion and contraction may damage the finish on the bottle. Steel is a very good indicator of temperature – Remember: If it is too hot to hold, it’s too hot to drink!
What is the conversion system?
The conversion system allows you to change your infant feeding bottle into a toddler sippy cup in one easy step! Just swap out your infant teat for the toddler sippy teat and you have a fuss-free and eco friendly solution. Both the infant teat and the toddler sippy spout are included with every Green.Kid bottle purchase. Green.Kid bottles are also compatible with most leading teat and sippy spout brands.
Can I use my Green.Kid bottle for my older child?
Green.Kid bottles can be used for older children and adults too! Just swap the infant or toddler teat for the Green.Kid Big Kid spout. Can I use my Green.Kid bottle from birth? The Green.Kid bottle is suitable from birth to adulthood.
What warranty does Green.Kid offer?

How do I heat milk in a Green.Kid bottle?
Electric or instant bottle warmers may be used. Follow the instructions provided by the manufacturer of the bottle warmer or simply place your stainless steel bottle filled with milk or other liquid to be warmed in a container of heated water for 1-2 minutes or until the bottle is lukewarm. Always test on the back of your hand before feeding. Remember to never put stainless steel bottles in the microwave. It is not recommended to microwave formula, breast milk, or other liquids as hot spots can occur. As with any baby bottle, we recommend that you don’t feed your baby liquids hotter than 37°C as your may risk burning yourself or your baby.

Is my Green.Kid bottle compatible with other teat and spout brands?
Yes, Green.Kid bottles are compatible with most leading teat and sippy spout brands. This makes for a seamless transition should you be crossing over from a plastic bottle – just use your existing teat!
What do I need to know about the teats?
As a general rule, we recommend slow flow teat for babies aged 0-3 months (included) and medium flow teats for babies of 3 months upwards (Coming soon!). As the average life span of a silicone teat is 1-2 months, we recommend replacing your teats as soon as there are any signs of ageing, such as bite marks or scratches. Should your baby be used to a certain teat, your Green.Kid bottle is compatible with most leading teat brands!
We do hope that this will be of use to you when you are thinking about buying a Green Kid Stainless Steele bottle.
