FAQ’s

Does Refresh-a-Baby fit all water bottles?

Refresh-a-Baby fits well on most water bottles. The product has been trailed on a very extensive range of Australian water bottles. This research has shown that Refresh-a-Baby fits securely on most bottles with no leakage. However, there are a few brands and bottle types where Refresh-a-Baby does have a loose fit which may cause leakage or cause it to become disconnected from the water bottle if excessive force is used. It has been found that the water bottles with the half sized lid (most commonly seen in Supermarket brands) have a larger opening which increases the likelihood of spillage. Refresh-a-Baby recommends parental discretion to ensure an adequate seal is obtained prior to giving to babies.

Does Refresh-a-Baby come with a cap?

No, Refresh-a-Baby does not come with a cap. The awkward shape of Refresh-a-Baby makes it very difficult to have a protective cap that covers the whole product.

Plus, you don’t have to worry about misplacing an extra piece!
