Did you know that Avent bottles have high levels of BPA in them? It’s a chemical that pretends to be a hormone inside the human body. In fact, all clear plastic bottles have high levels of BPA in the plastic. So does canned liquid formula. And this chemical is absorbed by infants along with their milk. Babies are exposed to way more BPA than adults, and their systems are much more sensitive to the hormone-like effects.
There are three types of bottles that are BPA free, and therefore much safer for your bundle of joy. Medela products – across the board have no BPA in them. Playtex nurser bottles – the ones with the drop in liners, are BPA free. However, the rest of Playtex’s bottles (like VentAire) do contain the chemical. And then, glass bottles are also BPA free.
Playtex is offering a FREE nurser system if you’re interested in switching. They will mail it to you!
