Just looking at the latest woolworths catalogue and they have a product called 'Bebi Infant suitable water'.

It also has a ready to use infant teat so all you have to do is add formula or just give them water.

Its a good marketing ploy for those who think its too hard to prepare a bottle of water.
I certainly won't be buying one...

Wow, imagine the mark up on it!
Sounds like when they started selling pre-cut fruit.

it's a convenience.  i can see it coming in handy for people in an emergency (ie a bottle has leaked/no boiled water available), much like formula stick packs/'poppers'.

Exactly what I was thinking!  You wouldn't buy it to use every day, but if you get caught out at home or if you're out and have no other option than to buy a tin of formula and a bottle of water...  If DD ends up bottle fed then I would consider having one as an emergency.

I'll be boycotting this product on the basis that they actively market fruit juice to babies in a bottle with a teat. They have a Facebook page where they are pretending to be open to hearing issues from concerned parents, but when someone posts a comment they don't like, or a link to nutrition advice from WHO and NHMRC, they are actually banning people and deleting their posts!

Edit: I have deleted my comment about Bebi just selling the water used to mix formula. Because I have never used formula, I didn't release that it's not just the water that needs to be sterile, the formula has to be heated to 70ÂșC and then cooled to be sterile... so unless parents are able to heat the bottle after mixing, this could be dangerous as well! I believe you can buy tetrapacks of premixed formula that is safe for babies and would be far safer than using this product!

I've also posted a link to this statement by the Dental Health Association

Beats me why they couldn't have just sold the sterile water product for mixing formula and left it at that shrug.gif

i can see the use of a the product...

there were a few times with boys boys that i had to purchase a bottle and bottle of water because i had forgotten to pack a bottle...

I noticed this last week or the week before on one of those morning shoes as I was running out to work. Missed half of it but it was like an infomercial segment.

Only based on the little bit I did see it's the biggest load of crap I have come across in a while. Still to this day I do not buy juice or cordial and can not see why it should be part of any childs diet who is still needing a teat!

I think it is terrible and the juice is just wrong. If they did any research at all they would find very quickly that babies/infants/toddlers should NOT have juice in their bottles as per recommendations from Paediatric Dentists.

Baby Bottle Tooth Decay anyone?

I am another boycotting them based on their juice products. Disgusting company.

I thought I saw this product on the bus today.  I was wondering what the mum next to me was doing unwrapping the bottle and snapping off the tip...

Thanks for clarifying what it actually is.  

Won't be buying either variety either....

They were handy when we travelled with a baby recently to a place without potable water. I took half a dozen of them.

I saw the juice and just said wtf to myself.

Say what?  It that just these bebi bottles or in normal formula usage?


No you don't boil formula. You don't have to sterilise even. It is just reccommended hot soapy water to wash and air dry. Some people still like to sterilise their bottles. But as most peoples kitchens arent sterile it doesn't really matter. You use cooled boiled water to make up the bottles.

This product looks pretty bad mad.gif
I think one of the juices is white grape, seriously it sounds like white wine!  I wonder if it is the same people who make alcho-pop type drinks?

#23 Acidulous Osprey

Posted 26 November 2012 - 11:46 PM

The product is bad but seriously?  You really think grape juice is bad?  To turn into wine it needs to ferment.

No way would they put wine in a product designed for babies.

Maybe evil people.  This guy perhaps
