What bottles are BPA free?

Currently I have Playtex vent-air bottles, NUK bottle, and First years breast flow bottle, and avent bottles. I am wondering are these bottles safe or should I get rid of them.

Also what do the numbers on the bottom of the plastic containers actually mean? I see some with 1 and my daughters sippy cups which are playtex insulators have a 5 on the bottom and the gerber baby food plastic containers have 7 on them. Does the number on the bottom mean anything if so what?

Thanks in advanced!!

    Although I read on safemama.com that 7 just means that they combined some plastics and that they may or may not contain BPA. 7 is on Gerber containers....

    apparently #7 is the one that contains Bpa. All hard, clear plastic bottles have Bpa. Switch to the Playtex Nurser. It has drop in bags. The bags do not contain Bpa. Also born free bottles are safe, but they have a completely different nipple that my baby wont take. If you switch to the drop ins at least you can still use Playtex nipples.

    All of the bottles you have contain BPA. Here is a list of some BPA-free bottles:

    Also, I use Playtex drop ins and really like them. Generic liners are much cheaper and work just as well. The drop in system is so convenient! Maybe you should try it! Good luck!

    These Gerber ones are BPA free, simple, cheap and do the trick! Thankfully I have been using them from the start!

    I'm sure you've got all the info you need, but thought I'd put my 'two cents' in. ; p

    Evenflo's glass and classic colored bottles and Wal-mart's Parent's Choice are BPA free.

    i'm sure you can look up the dangers of bpa online and it should give you a list.
