I’m actually glad that I pitched all of the bottles I used for my first two kids and had to buy new ones for surprise baby #3. Because with all the recent news about plastics leaching BPA and who knows what chemicals into the milk, I’ve gotten a lot more choosy about what I stick in my baby’s mouth.
Medela has recently come out with new glass bottles and they definitely get a thumbs up from me. A totally safe alternative from a company we mamas have trusted for years, they’re finally widely available–both at big ol’ stores like Target and smaller shops we have a heart for like Upper Breast Side and Ten Toes.
Stop worrying about whether those plastic bottles you’ve got really are BPA-free and pick up some new ones that are guaranteed to be. Whatever moms can do to sleep better at night we’re all for. -Julie
