CLEANING THE EDDY KIDS BOTTLE
We can’t offer up the bottle cleaning equivalent to the five-second rule, you just gotta do it. It won’t take long, and your kids will be eternally grateful. We recommend first removing your one-piece bite valve and straw for cleaning. It’s easy to do. (Yes, it looks like a lot of steps here, but it really is easy):

 

  1. Flip the stem to the open position by pulling on stem tab.
  2. Turn cap over and pull out the straw.
  3. Grab the flat finger tab on the base of the Big Bite Valve under the cap.
  4. In one firm motion, pull the Big Bite Valve component out of the cap.
  5. Clean the bite valve and cap by hand or in the top rack of a dishwasher.

 

If you use a dishwasher, a top-rack basket for small parts is ideal, and it’s good to avoid high-heat settings like 'sanitary clean' or 'heat boost' which may distort plastic components. If you clean by hand, use warm, soapy water. If you like to use a bottle brush, make sure it doesn't have exposed metal edges that could cut the silicone, then insert the brush into the open end at the base of the valve. We don't recommend forcing a brush of any kind through the Big Bite Valve slit (where you drink from) as this could damage the sealing surfaces of the Big Bite Valve.

To re-insert the bite valve back into the cap:

 

  1. Flip the stem collar (the component the bite valve passed through originally) to the open position. You should be able to look through both the opening in the cap and the opening in the collar.
  2. Turn the cap over and orient the bite valve so the finger tab points towards the back of the cap (where the handle loop is).
  3. Insert the tip of the bite valve through the cap and the collar until the end of the Big Bite Valve peeks through the outer end of the collar.
  4. Turn the cap over and grab the end of the Big Bite Valve and pull through until it sits in the grooves incorporated into the collar. If you pull the Big Bite Valve too far out these grooves will be visible. Just press the valve back down until these grooves are seated.
  5. Turn the cap over and press on the base of the valve to make sure it is seated.
  6. Insert the straw (either end it doesn't matter) into the hole in the valve base. Don't over-insert the straw just until you feel resistance.

 

FAQ

How do I put the Big Bite™ Valve back in the cap?
Follow these instructions to re-insert the Big Bite™ Valve component:

  1. Flip the stem collar (the component the bite valve passed through originally) to the open position. You should be able to look through both the opening in the cap and the opening in the collar.
  2. Turn the cap over and orient the bite valve so the finger tab points towards the back of the cap (where the handle loop is). Insert the tip of the bite valve through the cap and the collar until the end of the Big Bite™ Valve peeks through the outer end of the collar.
  3. Turn the cap over and grab the end of the Big Bite™ Valve and pull through until it sits in the grooves incorporated into the collar. If you pull the Big Bite™ Valve too far out these grooves will be visible. Just press the valve back down until these grooves are seated.
  4. Turn the cap over and press on the base of the valve to make sure it is seated.
  5. Insert the straw (either end, it doesn’t matter) into the hole in the valve base. Don’t over-insert the straw, just until you feel resistance.

Can I use a bottle brush on the Big Bite™ Valve?
Yes. The Big Bite™ Valve is made from tough silicone material that can be cleaned with a bottle brush similar to those designed for baby bottle nipples. Make sure the brush doesn’t have exposed metal edges that could cut the silicone. Then insert the brush into the open end at the base of the valve. We don’t recommend forcing a brush of any kind through the Big Bite™ Valve slit (where you drink from) as this could damage the sealing surfaces of the Big Bite™ Valve.

How is the eddy™ Kids Bottle cap different from the regular CamelBak eddy™ cap?
The eddy™ Kids Bottle and eddy™ both feature the easy-to-use, spill-proof Big Bite™ Valve technology, a convenient straw-feed format, and flip-close-to-shutoff stem configuration. The eddy™ Kids Bottle cap, however, features a Kids'-specific Big Bite™ Valve and stem design made from a single piece of medical grade silicone. This one-piece construction prevents a child from pulling the bite valve off accidentally, but makes it easy for a parent to remove and place in the dishwasher for cleaning.

Can I use carbonated beverages?
We do not recommend the use of carbonated beverages in the CamelBak™ Kids’ Bottle. Because of the spill-proof sealed construction of the bottle, carbonated beverages can cause pressure build-up that while not dangerous, can result in an experience like opening a shaken-up can of soda. To use with carbonated beverages, we recommend that you remove the straw and drink using the “tip and sip” method like an ordinary sippy cup.

Can I freeze the bottle?
You can freeze the bottle but make sure:

We also recommend that the bite valve stem NOT be flipped up or down if there is any frozen water in the tube. Wait until thawed.

Can I use the CamelBak™ eddy™ Kids Bottle in high-altitude/ low-pressure environments? (i.e. airplanes, mountain altitudes, etc)
Yes, but with extra care because pressure can force liquid out throuth the straw. Always keep the bottle right side up and the bite valve in the closed position. Remove the straw for additional protection. Expect a bit of “spurt” during the first sip.

  1. The bottle is not completely full when you do this (we recommend only 3/4 full to allow for expansion of the water

I love this brand bottle so much. It help tremendously when I was trying to get my son off from B. Feeding into bottle drinking. He refused every single brand bottle but this one. What help so much was the way the nozzle drinking was thick enough for him and the way he laid down to rest milk came out with eas no spill flow. Thank you so much you saved the day for me.

    Comments about eddy Kids .4L by CamelBak:

    This bottle is the best thing that has happened to our family. It has helped our adopted son with special needs in so many ways! We have bought multiple bottles since we have been home with him and none of them were as easy to use as this one. He choose this pattern on his own and we own 2 others, I plan on getting more! His one hand is pretty non-functional, but he can use this bottle with ease, due to it's one hand functionality. The fact that he needs to bite down on the rubber valve to get the water out gives him the sensory feedback that he craves since he's been home and has stopped him from chewing on toys, which is HUGE! I CAN NOT SAY ENOUGH OF GREAT THINGS ABOUT THIS PRODUCT!!!! Faithful customer here!!!!!

      Comments about eddy Kids .4L by CamelBak:

      This bottle is the first and only bottle my one year old accepted. He started to refuse bottles when he was three months old and continued to do so for over a year. Then I found this bottle!
      I'm so happy that my son is finally able to drink other things than just my milk. I'm finally able to go out with friends or work, without the anxiousness of my son not being able to drink.

      It would be even better (amazing) if you could adjust the bottle specially for smaller babies, so moms can see how much their baby drinks and without the tube, so there's no left over mother-milk.

      The reason this bottle is so good for bottle refusing babies is that most of them bite bottles and can't get out anything because of this. The eddy makes use of the biting, and enables to drink while biting. Wonderful!

            I was so excited for this cup. I have only heard great reviews of camelbak. We have the fox print cup and have found that if it's left on its side, the liquid will pool out, leaving a large wet spot. I thought it would be worth the cost, but won't be buying again.
