    Brands with BPA

    here's an updated Z-report on BPA ratings on more baby brands, not just for bottles but other things as well, hope this will help.

    Bfree and Born Free are 2 different brands, whilst Born Free rates well as BPA free, Bfree is only rated as fair.

    My issue with Bfree is that its unclear whether all parts are BPA free or just the bottle. The company is not great with disclosure on their products so I'm not completely confident about the bottles.

    Query: Thanks for your opinion on MAM. I found it helpful. May I ask where you bought the MAM bottles? Are they available locally?

    Just another quick note- I would like to buy the Born Free bottles but I'm unsure if it has any good anti-colic features. Dr. Brown worked really well for my newborn. If anyone has experience with the Born Free brand, please share.

    How universal are the glass bottles with pumps? I have an Avent hand pump but want to use glass bottles. Will the BFree glass bottles fit the hand pump? I was told the Nuk glass bottle necks are too narrow for the Avent pumps but since the BFree are out of stock, I couldn't look at them to even guess. If anyone knows, I'd be grateful for the info.

    Thanks

    tikkunolam,

    I just tried the pump with the bottle and it didn't seem to fit exactly right (not sure if you can get different size bottles for BFree though). Why don't you pump and then transfer? I used to pump into pigeon bottles (you can also find glass ones, athough the other parts is NOT BPA-free), and then transfer to my Adiri bottles for feeding.

    Hope that helps.

    Have a look at this article on BPA bottles. Even the well liked brands are not spared from BPA.

    Hi All,

    Here's information on the Avent website regarding BPA and their products;

    http://www.avent.philips.com/en_US/p...ent_on_BPA.asp
    also does anyone know if the WHO has issued any statement regarding BPA?

    Just want to research this thing thoroughly, thanks!
