Avent bottles contains Bisphenol A

MUST READ!
and forward to all ya friends who have children using bottles or are pregnant.

"SAN FRANCISCO -- ...

The independent laboratory study ...

The group tested five popular baby bottle brands -- Avent, Dr. Brown's, Evenflo, Gerber and Playtex -- all five of which leached bisphenol A at levels "found to cause harm in numerous laboratory animal studies," Gibson said."

boohoohoo... now mummy is super worried because I've been using Avent bottles, and we have like more than 50 avent bottles used to freeze my milk. Wonder does this have anything to do with my slowed down growth rate since I started going to infant care and use bottles.

Mummy knew about this chemical (BPA) but trusted Avent cos they said, "suitable for freezing breastmilk".

so now how? this is terrible.

see video at http://www.bisphenolafree.org/

look also at http://www.thegreenguide.com/reports/product.mhtml?id=44&sec=3
they list Avent baby bottles as those to Avoid. *Mummy faints*

how siah?

at this point, Mummy wants to send all the avent bottles for recycling. but it's like >50 bottles we talking about here. and the $$... oh man. to think Mummy trusted them and recommanded them to many people.

another question is: if we're not using Avent, what other brand can we use?
Mummy tried to check the packaging for Avent and NUK bottles (both we have at home) but they don't say what they use to make these bottles!
so how are we going to know if the bottles contain Bisphenol A (BPA) or not?!
we don't want to buy another 50 bottles to discover that they also contains BPA.

here's a pharmacy having a trade-in drive for BPA-free bottles:

oh God, please tell Mummy what to do.
