    Bisphenol A - are you concerned?

    It was on the news not long ago that by heating up plastics i.e sterilising plastics will cause release of Bisphenol A which can cause damage to babies such as obesity and other mental disorder. Are you mommys doing anything differently to prevent that? and how?

    you can buy glass bottles instead. Or if ur little one is old enough, you can stop sterilizing the bottles and wash the bottles with hot water and soap/washing detergents.

    You can also try Adiri bottles which are all tested safe. Have a look on their website www.adiri.com, they are great to use!

    I used Dr Brown before and it starting leaking internally especially when I sterilised them!!

    How can you tell that they are leaking internally? I've been using both Dr. Brown and Avent and haven't noticed anything. I use the Avent steriliser. I'm wondering now, is it a big concern now?

    Bubbly, can you get the Adiri bottles in HK or do you need to order online?

    I know they are leaking (well, maybe not just internally), but my Dr Browns only leak when I put hot water in them, so I can it is heat related. If I put juice or room temperature water in them, it's all fine, but as soon as hot water goes in, it leaks like crazy! I think the hot water expand the plastic causing it to leak.
