BFA Free Bottles & Sippy Cups

Your baby's bottles and sippys may not be as safe as they seem. According to a new report from the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences, certain types of plastic bottles and sippys contain a potentially dangerous chemical called bisphenol A (BPA), which has been linked to a number of health conditions in animals, including early onset of puberty, increased diabetes risk, hyperactivity, and certain cancers.  This chemical is found in hard, clear plastic baby bottles and sippy cups; over time, it can seep into the containers and into your baby's milk.

Click here to read more about BPA and for a review of 9 different BPA free bottles and sippy cups.
