    BPA (Bisphenol A) is a chemical used to harden plastics. Unfortunately, it can leach into food from the plastic. There aren't any absolutes about what it does, but it can disrupt hormone, neurological, and possibly cardiac functions. It may also contribute to cancer risks. All these issues are more pronounced in children for the same reason that a drop of food coloring in 2 ounces of water is much darker than it would be in 12 ounces. Their bodies are smaller and less efficient at removing toxins than adult bodies.

    BPA free products are marked as such. You may also rest assured that the FDA has banned the use of BPA in baby bottles and sippy cups. Many companies have also voluntarily stopped using it. If you're still worried, there are plenty of glass options available.

    If it's BPA free plastic, it should be written on there or at least advertized as such. Of course the internet is a good place to shop around...

    All I know about BPA is that it can leach into products over time, and it is poisoness, it can cause infertility and mental disorders.

    BPS has been linked to certain kinds of cancers. The bottles will say BPA free. You can try for an aluminum or stainless steal bottle.
