Guide to Bisphenol-A Free Baby Products
If you’re concerned about exposing your baby to Bisphenol-A in milk bottles, sippy cups, eating utensils and such, you have two options.
Seriously, why on Earth does a toddler spoon need to be plastic? The parent is holding the spoon, and by the time a kid is self feeding, he’ll only poke himself once before he learns. And really, how much does a spoon jab hurt? Impaled is impaled whether it’s plastic or metal. No companies make a "break away" safety spoon. Should they?
Oh, but who am I kidding? Most people will buy all the usual plastic junk at Target, K-Mart and Wal-mart.
So, two, you’d better enter the store informed. Z Recommends has its latest report out this month on BPA-free products. You can also look up information via text message while in the store, though I think a better option would be a PDF chart you could print and take to the store.
Z’s analysis contains self-reported information instead of lab test data, but what’s a blogger to do? So far, more than any advocacy group has done.
