    BPA is a dangerous cancer causing chemical that is found in some plastics. Generally in bottles the BPA is released when a bottle is heated up (like in a dishwasher). You will know a botle has BPA because it will have a number 7 printed on the bottom :)

    BPA stands for Bisphenol A. It's an endocrine disruptor. It's an estrogen receptor agonist that can act like the body's natural hormones, causing similar physiological effects on your body.

  • The above answerers are correct. I HIGHLY recomend using Playtex Drop-in nursers. (They are the kind with the liners.) The liners are BPA free and they really help reduce the amount of air your baby swallows, so there's less disscomfort for everyone! :)
