Trade in for BPA-free bottles

Parents, if your child is still using bottles, it's time to change to your Bisphenol-A (BPA) leaching bottles (click for list) to BPA-free bottles.

Mums & Babes (United Square and AMK Hub) is offering a trade-in: You can purchase a BPA-free Medela milk bottle for $6.90 instead of the usual $10.90.
They are great for breastmilk storage too.

For those who doesn't know what is Bisphenol-A (or BPA)...
BPA belongs to a group of chemicals known as endocrine disruptors that mimic or block the actions of our natural hormones, especially oestrogen. ... Children, especially unborn and
newborn babies, are at the greatest risk from such chemicals because imbalances of hormones can have pronounced effects during their critical developmental stages, although many of which do not reveal themselves until much later in life.
