BPA-free Bottles - know the dangers
BPA (bisphenol-A) is a harmful substance that can be found in baby bottles. Make sure you know the facts, the dangers and the safest bottles on the market.
Recent health scares, concerning polycarbonate baby bottles containing bisphenol-A, centre around concerns that long-term exposure to BPA could result in health and developmental implications for infants and children. The concern is that, in preparing a bottle by heating to a high temperature in a steriliser or microwave, babies could ingest a quantity of BPA, which leaches out of polycarbonate bottles more easily if they have been heated to a high temperature.
Many leading bottle and cup retailers, including VUPbaby offer leading-brand BPA-free bottles and cups, such as MAM, Born Free and bibi - all available online for delivery direct to your door. Further information on their BPA-free range can be obtained from the website; www.vupbaby.co.uk.
