I posted a while ago about my plastic freak out, & since then we have made the transition from plastic to glass baby bottles. Although glass bottles for babies/kids do have their shortfalls (smash!) & you can buy certain brands that are BPA-free, I am really happy that we have eliminated some more plastic from our lives.
The whole issue of the plastics used in some baby bottles (& particularly the possible danger of toxic chemicals being released when they are heated) has been in the press of late with the decision of the Canadian government to ban the sale of polycarbonate baby bottles because of the possible safety risks.
A while ago I read a fantastic (if a bit scary) article in Kindred Magazine (Dec/Feb edition) on the subject of toxic plastic. Does anyone out there ever look at the little recycling symbols on the bottom of plastic bottles etc? I never paid them much attention until I started reading about plastics & now I am intrigued. Basically plastics are numbered 1 to 7 & it is suggested (to be safe) that you should avoid 3, 6 & 7 with food-eek!
Oh & if you want to buy glass baby bottles & you live in Australia (they are very hard to find here) you can buy them online.
