Walmart and Toys "R" Us Pledge To Go BPA-Free

15 Jul

On another note, because of the National Toxicology Program’s recent findings on the effects of BPA on lab animals where they proclaimed there is “some concern,” big changes are happening.

For starters, the largest retailer in the world, Wal-mart has pledged to sell only BPA-free bottles by early next year. Woohoo! And Babies “R” Us has pledged to rid its shelves of all BPA or Bisphenol A bottles by the end of the year. Hooray! Whole Foods is also pledging.

Medela BPA-Free Baby Bottle Review

15 Jul

All Medela products are BPA-free. When I first bought my Medela breast pump, they came with 4 baby bottles. At the time, I had no idea they were even BPA-free.

I have been using Medela baby bottles for over 6 months now and I have to say, I really dig them. They’re easy to wash. They’re a nice small size, which is perfect for infants under 5 months. And it’s super compact, so it takes up less room in my diaper bag. My son is currently 6 months and I still use them on the go. He drinks 8 oz per feeding, so I have to fill it up some more. But it’s okay. I normally make sure he eats before I go out, so I normally don’t have to feed him while I’m out.

If you plan to breastfeed, I recommend these–especially if you buy a Medela breastfeeding pump. Not only will you get to use them with the pumps, but with regular feedings, too. And just so you know, Medela’s breastpump kits are BPA-free, too.

P.S. If you buy a new Medela pump, buy it off ebay. I saved $50.
