A new household member in 2016 means I now talk to a lot of other parents about baby stuff. As an engineer who has worked with and designed with plastics, I seek to limit my family’s exposure to the material. Just remember when a product is BPA free, that means some other compound you’ve never heard of is being used for the same purpose.
The essence of the problem is that plastics leach plasticizers and material into their surroundings. While most parents can’t avoid plastics entirely, I recommend limiting their use as much as possible. Avoid microwaving or heating the plastic. Avoid UV (Sun) exposure to the plastic.
This is what we use and we get a lot of questions about it and where we got them, so I wanted to post it up for other parents. While the nipple is silicone, as long as you don’t heat the silicone & plastic rim, your exposure is limited. These will last much longer than a traditional bottle, are durable, and heat up quickly in a pot. If you choose another company’s product, just make sure the stainless is very high quality and does not have any lining.
