Hi mummies /mtbs,
just want to find out if you are using BPA free bottles.
If so, what brands of bpa milk bottles are you using?
I know of the following brands, wondering which one is a good plastic BPA FREE bottles for baby
1) Dr Wood,
7) tommee tippee
9) Green to grow.
There are many more, but the above mentioned are sold in shops in sg.
i have seen 1) to 5 and 8) sold in "First Few years" but as their stock for playtex which is kinda appealing to me is low in stock(they do not carry many units of them) so i didnt get them. I also like nuby, but dont't know where to get it, except knowing there are pple selling them online. want to touch and see before buying....anyone know where?
Which plastic BPA free milk bottles are you using? Any one is good?
was told Dr Wood bottles have the best bottles for anti coli. and is BPA free
But design wise very boring.. hehe
Thank you for all your kind advices and opinions
What is BPA?
got this from google search
Bisphenol-A (Bis-fen-ol) – Bisphenol A (BPA) is a hormone-mimicking chemical used in polycarbonate plastic resins, epoxy resins, and other products. It is most commonly used in baby bottles or any type of hard shatterproof plastic containers. It is also found in the lining of canned goods, plastic wrap and other household plastics. Bisphenol has estrogenic properties which, in animal tests has shown to cause a bevy of health problems such as an increase in prostate and breast cancer, uro-genital abnormalities in male babies, a decline in semen quality in men, early onset of puberty in girls, metabolic disorders including insulin-resistant (Type 2) diabetes and obesity and neurobehavioral problems such as Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. Research is showing that when plastic containers, mostly those used to hold liquids and foods, are leeching Bisphenol into the foods and liquids they are holding. Heating food and liquids with these plastics is shown to increase the leeching of this contaminate. Please see the Environmental Working Group’s EnvrioBlog for great beginner information.

11) Lucky baby (a set of 4 narrow neck bottled less than $20) saw it at amk ntuc fairprice plus
I fianlly got tommee tipee BPA free bottles! At mothercare (marina sq) not as exp than other brands like medela though more exp than most other non- BPA free bottles.. I think tommee tipee BPA free bottles are good because it is stated on the packaging that the TEATs is BPA free
Their bottles also have pink and blue colours tinted on top of their usual transparent ones.... it is very cute as there are prints on these 2 series of bottles.
can consider this brand =)
I'm using Avent. I change my teats every 2 mths and my bottles every 3.
Today i am at baby kingdom and tom & stehanie and saw that acutally pigeon also has their range of plastic bottles that are bpa free! But is not cheap. a small bottle, if not wrong 260ml cost $15.90...
So for mummies who are waiting to get pigeon bpa free plastic bottles can head down to either baby kingdom and tom & stehanie to get them! Think it just arrive this week. Last wk when I bought my milk bottles, i did not see pigeon's bpa free plastic bottles !
