thinkbaby BPA-Free Baby Bottles
Starter Set Giveaway
Many parents believe that because a product is sold in stores, like baby bottles, they must be safe. Unfortunately, this is just not true. When my oldest child was first born I used plastic bottles bought at a popular Baby store, and became concerned after the bottles began showing scratching and looking cloudy after just a few weeks. I did a small amount of research and was shocked to learn a number of things. Most disturbing was that heating a bottle can cause harmful chemicals, like BPA which four years ago was in 95% of bottles sold in stores, to leach into the milk (and is then consumed by the baby). Research has linked many of these commonly used chemicals to a wide range of health problems including developmental disorders, hormone disruption, change in sexual maturation, breast cancer, type II diabetes, and more. Having no alternative when my son was a baby (nearly six years ago), I turned to glass bottles. This was a great alternative, however, for babies who are prone to gas or colic a vented bottle or nipple works best. I just wish I had a safe alternative like thinkbaby when my kids were still drinking from a bottle. Here’s some info on the thinkbaby company and about the Starter Set they’re giving away:
