    Default can anyone recommend a good bpa bottle?

    Im learning that all the major plastic brands leech bpa into baby and even low doses cause crazy things. I am a bit leary of handing a baby a glass bottle.

    Most, if not all, plastic baby bottles are now BPA-free.

    Agree with Sarah. It would be pretty hard to find a bottle WITH BPA nowadays.

    We used glass because there are other chemicals in plastic beside BPA. DD never held her own bottles which actually made weaning her from them that much easier.

    I must have read a very old article then. PCOSDC would you let your baby walk around with them? I mean how safe are they as far as if they were dropped or whatever.

    No but I wouldn't let her walk around with any bottle. She drank her bottle with someone holding her and when she was done drinking she was done. We weaned her off bottles by 1 year anyways.

    I have dropped them before and they didn't break but I imagine they can break if dropped. We use the evenflow old school looking ones.

    We also used glass bottles and no issues here. There are very thick. I dropped them a few times and it never broke. ( and that was only recently ) We also used Evenflo and decided on glass for the same reasons. Plastic in general leaches chemicals.

    My friend gave me tons and tons of Avent bottles and a sanitizer but now I am really looking into glass.

    I loved our born free glass bottles. They were dropped on cermaic tile floors countless times and never broke. They make rubber sleeves for them but I always thought they were more of a pain then they were worth. DS never held his own bottle either. By the time he was of the age to walk around with milk or water it was in a sippy cup.

    If you are set on glass (which is not a bad idea), they do have little silicone sleeves that you can buy, or that come with the bottle, like this: http://www.amazon.com/Evenflo-COunce.../dp/B001H0GGWS. I still wouldn't let my baby walk around with them, but it makes them a bit more drop proof.

    We loved the Born Free glass bottles, too. We had a few Born Free plastic (for daycare - no glass allowed) and a few Born Free glass (for home) and really loved them all.

    Thanks for the born free reviews I really am going to consider those. We have hardwood floors so that was kind of freaking me out. I am a FTM so I didn't really know how long you let babies go with bottles. I guess if they can hold it they probably should have sippy cups by then lol Live and learn I suppose!

    You should be fine we have hardwood floors too and ceramic in the kitchen and the few times I dropped them was on the ceramic and not even a chip! Ofcourse becareful with them but it worked out great for us. Nadia did start holding her bottle at around 7 months I believe but like everyone else we held her or placed her in her chair for feedings and We don't let her walk around with it.
