    BPA is Bisphenol A, it's a chemical in plastic baby bottles that can be harmful to babies. I guess they've suspected for awhile that it could be harmful but it's not til recently that they did studies on it, and found that it's potenntially harmful, and so now baby bottles are made without the chemical.

    Hope this helps, :D.

    it fairly is a non-situation in case you do not warmth the bottle. in case you prefer to warmth your formulation, placed it right into a measuring cup, warmth in microwave and then pour into the bottle. Hand wash your bottles with a bottle brush particularly of applying the dishwasher, even nevertheless the temperature is regularly not over one hundred forty five F. BPA breaks down at temperatures over a hundred and seventy, which doubtlessly can happen in a microwave. bear in mind that little one food in sparkling plastic boxes additionally should not be heated in a microwave for a similar reason. If the plastic is obvious, it includes BPA. BTW, the BPA situation has been happening for greater beneficial than 12 years. so some distance, exams have not shown that BPA leaks into milk except the plastic is previous or no count if it fairly is heated above a hundred seventy five levels.
