PC Bottles

More and more research done on this plastic material (Polycarbonate) and it seem like more bad news appear. It's also means that my son feeding bottle also not "healthy" as well his drinking bottle.

Must ask him to use cup to drink milk instead of feeding bottle. But about the young small baby? This is why we practice changing the feeding bottle after 3 months as we always "sterilise" the bottle daily. OK, use back old generation's way - Glass feeding bottle. But please ready it 10 pieces, the baby might break it anytime after they finish it!

PC bottle tend to release some chemical
bisphenol A (BPA). BPA has been linked with health problems such as impairment of reproductive organs and tumour formation. It is also "environmental hormone" which disrupts the endocrine system of humans and animals. Sound scary right!!

How to know it PC bottles? Look for the label of "triangle with a 7 in it" at the bottom of the bottles. Good luck
