In January 2010 the FDA finally reversed its earlier position and now believes exposure to bisphenol A (BPA) is not safe. BPA is commonly found in baby bottles. So over the past week we have been reviewing 12 BPA-free baby bottles we found.
We have already reviewed the Adiri and Avent BPA-free baby bottles, the Wee Go Nurser by Babylife, the Born Free bottles, and the Evenflo glass nurser.
Today, we ask nannies and au pairs to share what they like about the Green to Grow baby bottles.
The Green to Grow line of BPA-free plastic baby bottles grew from a couple's alarm as they read reports that highlighted the potential dangers of plastics. The parents were upset to discover that most baby bottles are made of polycarbonate plastic, which contains the hormone disruptor bisphenol A—a neurological, developmental, and reproductive toxicant. So, they launched a new baby bottle line with safer alternatives made from premium grade materials, even if they cost a little more. And to ensure the highest level of quality and safety, they decided to have our bottles independently tested for bisphenol A, phthalates, and lead at reputable labs in the U.S. and in Europe.
