BPA and baby bottles
It's hard these days to keep track of all the evils that are out there but BPA is one of those things that most of us has heard about and if not I will just tell you that most plastic bottles are made with it (apparently it makes the plastic harder) and all canned goods are lined with it, if you want to learn more about it click here. But in March 2009 three states attorneys general (Connecticut, New Jersey and Delaware) asked the top six baby bottle makers to stop using it. So now, Avent, Disney first years, Dr. Brown, Evenflow, Gerber and Playtex will all stop using BPA in baby bottle manufacture.
In the article that I found in the medlines website they go on to say "Legislators in Suffolk County, New York, unanimously voted last week to ban polycarbonate baby bottles and sippy cups marketed for children age 3 and under, making the county the first jurisdiction in the US to ban BPA products. Canada banned BPA-based baby bottles in April 2008, with the expectation that bans on all BPA-based products will follow soon."
I think this is such good news and hopefully we will follow suit with Canada and not have to worry about BPA's anymore!

Or you can just use these wonderfully colorful glass bottles from wee-go with a silicone sleeve that keeps them safe from breaking! I think I would go with this choice!!
