How to Choose BPA Free Baby Bottles

Updated on April 14, 2009

BPA Free Baby

While Canada has placed a country-wide ban on baby bottles containing BPA, the American government hasn't flinched, despite CDC reports that over 90 percent of Americans are exposed to BPA.

It's a mystery why the American government continues to sell toxic items to families. That's right: toxic. The Canadian government has labled BPA a "toxic" chemical and has banned BPA as a result. To learn more about BPA studies and the dangers that it imposes on children, read about the dangerous chemical known as BPA.

After testing five manufactured baby bottles: Avent, Dr. Brown's, Evenflo, Gerber and Playtex -- studies found that all five leached the hormone-disrupting chemical bisphenol A (BPA).

What can you do to protect your baby from these harmful chemicals?

Choose BPA free baby bottles. The following resources are intended for parents who wish to choose BPA free baby bottles. Most of these products are available internationally.

The latest, Playtex Drop Ins bottle system is not only Bisphenol free, but using the drop in disposable liners make it so much more hygenic and easier to clean than traditional baby bottles. This company www.baby-bottle.co.uk can supply the range of Playtex Bottle products.
