If you have been following the BPA controversy like I have, you know it’s been “uh oh they’re dangerous!” and “nuh uh, they’re safe” for awhile now. To bring you up to speed, some say that any clear plastic water bottle that is shatter proof (like those Nalgene bottles that hikers use) can leech harmful chemical BPA over time.
They told us don’t wash them in hot water, don’t microwave them, don’t use them. The BPAs can lead to cancer, or early onset puberty (when I was a kid, that would have been awesome, but now I know that it would not have been awesome, and now that I have a kid, I don’t want any chemicals messing with his junk)

Well they’re also used in all kinds of popular baby bottles, so people were starting to freak out. First a study comes out saying they’re bad, then a study says they’re ok, then it turns out that THAT study was funded by a plastic company, then Canada’s FDA equiv says they’re banning them…
So now, is reporting that the FDA (our own USA FDA) says that they’re fine… nothing to see here, go about your business. (Click to read the article)
I wonder what we’ll hear next week.

    I have read an article that said you should not use the rubber nipples because they are made with the same type of materials. They (the article) recomended using the silicone ones.
