Plastic Baby Bottles Ruled Safe

Plastic baby bottles and water bottles are safe, a federal health official said Tuesday, seeking to ease public concerns about the health hazards of a chemical used in the products.

The National Toxicology Program said in a recent draft report that there is "some concern" that bisphenol A can cause changes in behavior and the brain, as well as reduce survival and birthweight in fetuses. It drew its conclusions from animal studies.

All the same, I don't see why I shouldn't just use glass bottles. It's easy enough for me. I am leery of such news; it seems we could find out eventually how true such news is, and why take the risk?

check out this page about plastic baby bottles,


ask yourself is it worth the risk for your baby, it wasnt for me. glass bottles are just as easy to use and are very inexpensive to purchase. dont take the chance.
