Having a great drink bottle as a mum is an absolute essential as a mum.

You’ll drink more water when your pregnant to keep your baby healthy.  You’ll have one for the labour, because it’s thirsty work.  You’ll feel like a parched camel when your breastfeeding and a bottle is at times easier to manage than a glass.  You’ll pop one in the pram when you’re clocking up your pram miles and need a break from coffee…  Keeping all of that in mind, it pays to invest in a good one that you love.

Here are my top 3…

Camelbak – Brilliant as a no spill option and easy to manage with one hand on the go.  This is my daily go to when I’m running around.  It takes a bit to get used to drinking out of, so if you’re taking one into your birth with you – practice before you go in so you don’t get frustrated and want to throw it at someones head, just sayin’!


  • 100% BPA free durable tritan co-polyester material
  • Easy one-handed operation, gently bite the valve and apply suction to drink through the straw.
  • No need to tilt the bottle upright, ideal for cycling and other activities.
  • 100% spill proof when closed, properly maintained and properly assembled.
  • Spare bite valves available to purchase separately.
  • Wide-mouth fits ice cubes and makes cleaning easy with the Camelbak bottle brush kit.
  • Top loop for easy carrying or clipping onto a bag, belt or pram.
  • Top rack dishwasher safe but hand washing is recommended.


Life Factory – Glass, aside from being chemical free, it just tastes better.  I love this one for the car or pram.  After reading a lot about the nasty chemicals that leech from plastic when it’s left in the heat of the car, I love knowing my water stays clean and pure in this one.  I also love that it has a wide enough neck that it’s easy to put some fruit in if you fancy mixing up your flavours.


  • BPA, phthalate, PVC free.
  • Non-toxic silicone sleeve. Provides a great gripping surface and helps to prevent breakage.
  • New flip-top lid for easy drinking.
  • With glass there is no chemical leaching and no metallic taste.
  • Widemouth bottle make it easy to add ice, etc.
  • Bottle and sleeve can be put in the dishwasher together.


Klean Kanteen – Stainless steel, non breakable, sturdy and chemical free..  I love this because it can withstand some serious bumps and bruises and the ring on the lid makes it easy to carry when you’re juggling a baby or toddler.


  • Made from high quality stainless steel.
  • Caps made from BPA free polypropylene.
  • Fitted with a spill-proof sports 3.0 cap.  This top is not 100% leak proof – if left on it’s side or upside down when closed it may dribble slightly.
  • Does not retain or leach flavours. Safe for fruit & carbonated drinks.
  • Large-mouth fits ice cubes, makes cleaning a breeze.
  • Responsibly made in China.



The best bit about these three water bottles is that you are doing your bit for the planet by having a reusable bottle and reducing plastic waste.  The second best thing about them is they have mini me versions so you can happily match with your bub when they get a bit older.  So cute!

Have you got a stand out water bottle you’d love to share?
