Alternatives to Plastic Bottles


If you are concerned that BPA in your child's plastic bottle could be harmful, you have a few options. As always, there are trade-offs. You can get a glass bottle, which has no chemical side effects whatsoever. However, glass bottles are susceptible to shattering, which could lead to more immediate safety concerns. You could also try a BPA-free opaque bottle, instead of a transparent bottle made with BPA. You can buy natural products such as those available from Born Free Baby Products, which contain no such chemicals. In that case, you may not be able to tell easily how much liquid your child has consumed. As a parent, it's your job to determine what makes you the most comfortable.
