To provide parents with safe, healthy and environmentally responsible choices in baby feeding products, Andrew Weil, M.D., world-renowned leader in integrative medicine, and Key Baby, LLC, are pleased to announce the launch of the Weil Baby(TM) line of bottles, nipples, sippy cups, pacifiers, gift sets and accessories. Trusted and tested by pediatricians, lactation consults and moms, the complete range of products are based on Dr. Weil's 30 years of clinical experience. Weil Baby(TM) products are currently available on www.weilbaby.com and will be available at select Babies 'R' Us stores, www.BabiesRus.com, select Whole Foods stores and Duane Reade stores in late August.
"These products reflect the prudent combination of functional design and the best material-safety available today to help infants get a healthy start in life," said Dr. Weil. "My philosophy is that it is far better to maintain good health from an early age than to attempt to achieve it later in life."
Weil Baby(TM) Products are a Breakthrough in Healthy and Safe Feeding
Weil Baby(TM) bottles and sippy cups feature the breakthrough AirWave(TM) one-piece venting system, which helps eliminate air bubbles ingested by babies and toddlers, reducing the risk of colic, gas and spit-up. The containers are made of both glass and Tritan(TM), a remarkable clear material that contains no bisphenol A, commonly known as BPA, which may disrupt normal estrogenic activity (EA). Extensive laboratory testing has shown that Tritan(TM) is completely EA-free, making the Weil Baby(TM) line ultra safe.
Weil Baby(TM) Products are High Quality and Unique
Weil Baby(TM) made the investment to produce the products in the USA to offer moms the highest degree of quality assurance that the products have met strict quality control standards and have lot-number traceability. These qualities are rarely, if ever found in other baby feeding products.
The current Weil Baby(TM) line sports a unique, stylish look -- the bottles are made in an ergonomic cylindrical shape, while the handle, sippy cups and pacifiers come in assorted colors. "The principle aim was not to create 'high style' baby feeding products, but rather to make products that were optimally safe, healthy and convenient," said Dr. Weil. "But as is often the case with objects that are carefully designed to be extremely functional, they just happen to be attractive!"
Weil Baby(TM) Products are Environmentally Friendly
Weil Baby(TM) products are also good for the environment. American production means shorter transportation routes, which minimizes our carbon footprint. The packaging is made with 100 percent recycled paper, the windows are made PET, one of the most recyclable materials on earth. The inserts are fully compostable and dissolve in water because they made from Plantic(R) which is also known as Biomax(R) from DuPont(R).
A Complete Healthy-feeding Collection
In 2010, Weil Baby(TM) plans to add several breast pumps to the line, including the only FDA-approved, hospital grade breast pump sold at retail. They are designed to be the most comfortable pumps available, easily adjustable and highly portable -- perfect for moms-on-the-go. In addition, Weil Baby(TM) is also adding formula dispensers, nipple shields for breast feeding, electric steam sterilizers and bottle warmers, travel bottle warmers, collapsible snack containers and an innovative silicone breast milk spoon feeding system. "At that point, a complete healthy-feeding collection will be in place," said Dr. Weil.
