Is anyone really using glass bottles to avoid the bpa chemical?

My baby would throw it. How do you do this if you do?

  • BPA is a chemical that mocks estrogen. When bottles are heated, the chemical can get released. While anon beliefs they are "safe" I think it's a risk no parent should take. Canada banned BPA products.

    I breastfeed but we will probably use glass bottles when the new baby gets here. I wont need many bottles though. It will also depend on what kind of nipple she will take. My first daughter never took a bottle haha.

  • They now make BPA plastic bottles. I would try born free, who I think have always been BPA free.

    I will be using glass at first, but have thought I will probably end up switching later to the plastic versions as the baby gets older. I will be using Born Free for both versions.

    Hope that helps.

  • BPA is a chemical that the media was reporting would make babies sick, cause cancer, and a myriad of other horrible things.

    The media was wrong. They misrepresented the study results as usual. There is no poisoning going on.

    Use the bottles, sippy cups, toys, pacifiers, etc that you want. It was a big scare last couple of years....a needless scare.

    Recent studies have supported previous ones in that the amount of the chemical in plastics is NOT harmful...but again, those results were barely reported. It wouldn't bring in the ratings for the media that they wanted.

  • Anon read the studies and the actual conclusions, not just what the media reported.
