  • That’s a pity, they look really beautiful.
    I think that many bottles will break when thrown down with force. Good on Smiggle for recalling them.

  • I thought all baby products would have to go through stringent safety testing before being released onto the market.

  • Yes, Smiggles products are expensive and are normally excellent quality.
    I think this may be a faulty batch. I’m wondering who the actual manufacturer is and if there is any other brands involved.
