With all the toy recalls and increased awareness of the benefits of organics, parents are more aware than ever about dangers that plague their children. All parents want to give their babies the best start and buying bisphenol-A (BPA) free baby bottles is a smart way to limit some possible risks, even though science has said that BPA is safe.
* Look for a recycle number on the bottom of the bottles. Many polycarbonate products are not recyclable, so if there is a recycle number on the bottom, you may have run across a "safe" plastic. A recycle number has a triangle made of three arrows around it and is usually molded into the plastic.
* Note the recycle number. Certain recycle numbers are said to be safer than others. Steer clear of numbers 3, 6 and 7. Numbers 1, 2, 4 and 5 are said to be safer. Categorizing plastics by recycle number is under some debate, so use your best judgement as to which plastics to buy.
Thanks a lot!
