What does it mean. Are the older bottles not BPA free? What happens if you dont use a BPA free bottle?

It's a risk, as with anything.

Yep, there are some older bottles which are not BPA free.  Most bottle companies are now BPA free if not all.  If you dont use a BPA free bottle, there is a chance that the chemical will leach into the milk.

Exactly. :)

 If I wasn't going to be breastfeeding, I would be using glass bottles instead of plastic just for added measure of safety against chemcials.

I use Born Free bottles which are BPA free. There are a bit more expensive, but I was worried about it because Ive read that heating the bottle can accelerate the problem.
