Whether you are supplementing or have chosen European baby formula as the very best alternative to breastmilk, choosing the baby bottle your little one takes will be a big part in introducing and making the perfect bottle or baby formula for your baby.
With so many baby bottles on the market you may wonder what the best one to choose is. The first place to start is with the material your baby’s bottle is made of.
Say no to plastic baby bottles
BPA or bisphenol A (BPA) is used to make the polycarbonate and epoxy resins found in plastic baby bottles. When BPA is heated, it turns into a very toxic chemical. Studies have shown that consuming food or liquids from containers where the BPA was heated can lead to brain cancer. Plus, it has been highlighted as a cancer risk later in life.
Plastic baby bottles are not environmentally friendly or responsible either. It can take up to 1,000 years to decompose a plastic baby bottle when discarded.
A safe baby bottle
When it comes to glass baby bottles vs. stainless steel baby bottles, the choice is personal preference. Each of these materials are made without harmful chemicals, toxin-free, and eco-friendly.
