In case you haven't heard about the chemical bisphenol-A (BPA) in baby products, check out this video from ABC news.
It's been awhile since I first wrote about my recommendations for BPA free sippy cups. Several more have come in to the market, and you might be wondering about other safe BPA products to use with your baby and kids. Lots of mamas are writing about this on the web, and I provide links to some helpful resources in this post. Thanks to all the great research and work by mamas everywhere to help get the BPA out of our kids! Here is a link roundup of the latest information about BPA free gear for your kids.
I found the motherload of a site about BPA! Check out The Soft Landing, an online store featuring BPA free everything and a blog about non-toxic living. Run by a mama and nurse, this site is packed with helpful information about raising kids as "softly" as possible.
Safe Mama has a helpful (and brief- good for us sleep deprived parents!) list of safe, non-toxic teethers and pacifiers. If you must buy plastic, these are some solid BPA free choices.
The folks at Z recommends have seriously done their homework! This post has a great graphic that shares simply what brands are their "top picks", "proceed with caution", and "ones to avoid" in the areas of bottles, sippy cups and pacifers.
A new BPA free Sippy Cup: The Safe Sippy This is real pretty and priced at 14.95.
Here is a brand called Nuby, with more affordable options, but there is a bit of confusion about which products might contain BPA, and which might not. My gut reaction would be to avoid them altogether, but you can check out a thorough review of Nuby's products for yourself.
