Thank you for your comments!

As you know we have a fab BornFree Parent Panel, made up of mums and dads who write regular articles for our blog about all kinds of parenting issues ranging from teething to tantrums. We’re so proud of our panel members for providing such interesting and thought provoking posts and we love it when they generate discussions within our community. In fact we love it so much that we chose one person from whoever comments on each blog post, either here on the blog or on the Facebook wall, to receive a BornFree goody, just to say thanks.

You may remember that back in June we held a ‘Brag about Dad’ competition to celebrate Father’s day and we chose 3 families who each received £100 in BornFree products. Our winners were given the pick of our online shop and we were delighted that one of our winners, Nicola, has sent us a fantastic review of the products that she chose.
Overall
I cannot believe the outstanding quality of the BornFree collection.  I’d heard about BPA free products, and I was slightly aware of the dangers in plastics, however BornFree have now educated me fully on the danger …

We’ve been very lucky to have a  review of our training cups posted on the natural parenting blog Diary Of  A First Child .
The author, Lushka, talks about how she wanted to introduce a cup to her exclusively breastfed daughter to make sure she stays hydrated in the hot weather. After struggling unsuccessfully with various cups she found BornFree and, well, the rest is history!
These 9 oz. (290ml) cups are BPA, phthalates and PVC free which means that no harmful ingredients seep in to the baby’s drinking water. The spout itself has proven to …

Being a new parent is hard work! But it’s a lot easier when it’s approached as a team effort. In the early days, the onus is on the new mummy but there are plenty of ways a partner can contribute and support : night feeds, nappy changes, looking after siblings, cooking, cleaning, foot massages…….I could go on.
In my work as social network coordinator I hear a lot about ‘hands on Dads’ and I’m very pleased to be able to post this  lovely feedback from new Dad, Ben Mynott,  who clearly has his wife and baby’s best …

We have now received some of the Tester’s Feedback for the products that BornFree entered and it’s so fabulous that we want to share.
Category Entered – Best Product for Bottle Feeding
Name of Product – Bornfree BPA Free Plastic Bottle
 My son really liked these bottles, he’s usually a very messy drinker and ends up with a ‘milk beard’ but with these he didn’t dribble any milk out.  I found them really easy to …
