Frequently Asked Questions:
Do the nipples collapse during feedings?
No, Born Free is a vented bottle system and the nipples do not collapse when used correctly.
If a customer is experiencing nipples collapsing it is due to one of two issues. The most common reason is that the child is ready to move up to the next level nipple. When the baby sucks harder than what the liquid is flowing, the nipple will start to collapse or invert into itself. Born Free offers 5 levels of nipples to fit all the stages of a baby’s development.
The second reason a nipple will collapse is that the collar is being screwed onto the bottle too tightly. This will build up too much pressure inside the bottle and the nipple will collapse. Loosening the collar just a little bit will solve this issue.
Are the Born Free parts interchangeable?
All cups and bottles are completely interchangeable. Spouts and handles can be put on bottles and nipples can be put on cups. The only exception is the Twist ‘N Pop Straw Cup which is not interchangeable.
Can cereal be added to formula when using a Born Free bottle?
When cereal has to be added to a bottle, consumers should use Level 3 nipples. The Y cut can be used for thicker formulas or for children who are older. Born Free recommends speaking to a pediatrician before adding cereal to bottles.

Are the bottles dishwasher safe?

Secure the smaller pieces so they do not fall to the bottom of the dishwasher and run the dishwasher as you would normally.
How should Born Free products be maintained?
