Where to find BPA free bottles?

Standard

With the ban on BPA feeding bottles announced yesterday, I am sure many parents would be hunting for BPA free bottles for their babies/infants. I googled and found this excellent blog by Trisha, http://amomsblog.wordpress.com.  She has presented a list (cheat sheet as she calls it) of BPA free bottles and sippy cups.  See here.

Ban on non-BPA-free feeding bottles

Standard

Tonight’s evening news headlines highlighted that the Malaysian government will ban feeding bottles that are not BPA-free by March 2012.

I googled online and found an article by The Malaysian Insider (it’s the first to publish online).

Hmm … I wonder why wait a year?  A year is too long if you’re thinking of the safety of the little ones who are drinking from these bottles.

So, which plastics contain BPA?

According to Wikipedia, we should look at the identification code found at the bottom of the plastic container/bottle.

“In general, plastics that are marked with recycle codes 1, 2, 4, 5, and 6 are very unlikely to contain BPA. Some, but not all, plastics that are marked with recycle codes 3 or 7 may be made with BPA.”

Some type 7 plastics may leak bisphenol A
Type 3 plastics may leak bisphenol A
