BPA free bottles and sippy cups

Updated 2/10/10

Most parents are ready to pull their hair out trying to find BPA-free products for their kids. So I have compiled a cheat sheet to help you wade through the large selection of bottles, sippy cups, storage containers, snack cups, etc.

If you are aware of a BPA-free bottle or sippy that is not on the list, please let me know and I will add it. That said, this may not be a comprehensive list as new products are released all the time. Additionally, please be aware that Avent, Dr. Brown’s, Nuby, Gerber and others DO have products made of polycarbonate plastics and therefore NOT BPA free, so please choose wisely. I hope this relieves some concerns or helps you select products that are considered safe.

*If you are currently using Dr. Browns polycarbonate bottles and would like to switch, the Dr. brown’s venting system (the internal pieces) are BPA Free and are made of polypropylene plastic. Also, they FIT and work with BornFree bottles which could be a little bit of a money saver.

** Dr Browns bottle nipples fit with Green to Grow bottles. As we know once a baby is comfy with something it’s sometimes a pain to change so it’s good to know we don’t have to change everything if we don’t have to. Alicia of The Soft Landing did a more exhaustive report on what nipples fit what bottles. Read about it on her blog here.

Visit Z Recommends for product reviews on many of these BPA-free products. They have done an outstanding job of researching and reviewing these products.

What is Bisphenol A?
Bisphenol A is a harmful chemical found in polycarbonate plastic which is used to make many popular baby bottles and sippy cups, among other things. Bisphenol A (BPA) is a chemical that mimics the action of the human hormone estrogen, which alters our body’s natural pattern. BPA can leach from polycarbonate plastic, usually a hard, clear plastic that is common of many products we use everyday. Effects at even low BPA exposure include prostate cancer, breast cancer, early puberty onset, alterations in gender-specific behavior, decreased sperm count, affects on fertility, behavioral effects including hyperactivity, increased aggressiveness, impaired learning and other changes in behavior, and other problems.

Many companies use this chemical in their packaging including cans, soda cans, and plastic food containers. There is a risk of absorbing this chemical through the use of containing foods and liquids but can also leech into our water systems through landfills.

Many leading experts argue that the use of Bisphenol is safe to the human public but research may begin to further prove otherwise. No level of BPA has been deemed as safe by independent research.

    Avent Tempo disposable bottle liners also do not contain BPA. The bottle itself is made from polycarbonate plastic, but it never comes in contact with the milk/formula.

    Hi Shannon, thanks for the info. ZRecs lists the Avent Tempo as borderline. http://zrecs.blogspot.com/2007/07/z-report-bisphenol-in-polycarbonate.html

    The liners are PET and considered safe, but the bottles are not. I agree with the borderline theory and parents can make their own decision on this one, though in my quest for BPA to just go away, I would not recommend this bottle.

    Thanks for your comments!

    Thank you for these great guidelines and links. It is hard to sort out what has BPA and what doesn’t, especially when it comes to sippy cups. Canada gov’t is expected to label BPA as a toxic substance today, according to newspaper reports, so with that we will be looking for alternatives at our house.

    Thank you for posting this list! I have a 9 month old and just learned about BPA. Fortunately, my son is mostly breastfed, but the containers I stored expressed milk in do contain BPA!!! If I feed him a bottle I feed him out of a Platex bottle with a liner (however I have seen conflicting reports on that as well). I am going out today to find an alternative storage container and bottle!

    Betsy,

    Fortunately my DD was breastfed, but I used the Dr. Browns for daycare (grrrrrr…), but I at least feel a little better knowing she had a somewhat limited exposure. We also did not run the bottles through the dishwasher.

    As far as milk storage, I LOVED the Lansinoh freezer bags. They are safe, easy to use, and you can freeze then store them flat, so it saves a lot of room! There are many breastmilk bottles that are safe as well.

    Best of luck!

    I noticed in your post about BPA that you mentioned Playtex products. On behalf of Playtex, I wanted to clarify that the majority of the Playtex feeding & soothing portfolio is BPA-free, as well as all products being Phthalate-free.

    Maria, the Dr. Brown’s nipples are safe, the bottles themselves are not (unless you get the new glass or polyethylene ones labeled BPA free). Yes, Medela bottles are safe and are on the list!

    I am not certain, but I believe I was told that the Dr. Brown’s nipples fit the Medela bottles.

    don’t you think that they should nationally recall these bottle and that the companies should be forced to comp their consumers i just bought roughly thirty dr. browns bottles and they have been used so returning them is not an option yet i don’t want to expose my baby. any suggestions?

    Reply

  21. Posted by Trisha on April 30, 2008 at 6:45 pm

    amanda, i definitely think they should recall them, but the FDA still maintains the safety of BPA bc of the 2 studies they have that were supplied by the plastic industry (you know the folks that gave us BPA). until the FDA sees the light, no recalls will happen. Not sure they would institute a recall.

    I definitely think the bottle companies should take it upon themselves to do some type of buy back or swap out, even if they have a minimal charge.

    I personally have Dr. Brown’s and I will be contacting them and asking them if they will swap out the bottles in some fashion. Even if they charge me half, I’m fine with it, though I really don’t expect they would even acknowledge my request, but it’s worth a try! If you try it, good luck and let me know what type of response you get!

    Oh, you could still try returning them if you purchased them recently — it would be worth a try.

    Bobbi, sorry, something happened to my original reply and just noticed it did not post. #7 typically indicated BPA is present, though 7 can also be a catch all for items that use a combination of plastics, though it still could use a plastic that should be avoided.

    #5, along with 1, 2 and 4 are considered safe. Experts advise avoiding #3, 6 and 7 as they are more likely to leak dangerous toxins.

    Hi Rebecca, regarding your comment about the baby food – there is a #7 on the Gerber plastic baby food containers; however, I called Gerger and they advised that #7 can mean that the product is made up of different plastics – and they assured me that there was no BPA in the plastic containers.

    Rebecca and Bridget, Gerber’s #7 containers are BPA-free, but I called numerous times and was told a few different things. It is made of 2 plastics (either #2 or #5 depending on who you ask at Gerber) but the 2nd plastic was always #6, one to avoid. Still a sad case.

    I’ve just moved from using “Pigeon” peristaltic bottles and nipples to “Tommee Tipee” sippa cups. After reading this page I’ll be changing for sure and checking my entire cupboard for plastic ware. I didn’t see pigeon on the list so I’m assuming it’s bad.
    I’m sure there was a story on the t.v. once about stuff(bpa’s) in plastics and the glues on say yoghurt containers with the aliminium covers seeping into the food they contain. Again apparently not in a number high enough to cause any further investigation or change to company practices

    Please read the article at Stats.org about this issue. There is always more to the real science than what is being reported in the news. The main study that is being reported was done under very extreme conditions, that no normal baby bottle or especially cup is subjected to! Although it is still a good idea to remove the BPA from products, do not feel guilty for having used the bottles in the first place!

    Lini, if the milk comes into contact with the parts made of BPA, I personally would get another pump. You could try and return it to the store where you purchased it or contact Avent and ask for a refund. There is actually a class action lawsuit against 5 baby bottle manufacturers claiming they knew the harmful effects of BPA and still used them in their infant products.

    Help! I have a 12 month old that won’t give up his bottle. We’ve only used Born Free bottles and BF training cups. He associates the BF training cups with water only. Now that we’re on whole milk, he won’t give up the bottle. I’ve tried the BF drinking cup but it leaks and well ‘it’s for water only.’ (Also tried Green Sprouts, Kleen Kanteen and Nuby drinking cups). He also won’t drink from a sippy with a straw … he loves to chew on everything! Any advice on other BPA-free sippy cups that will help with the transition to LOSE the bottle? Thank you in advance!

  48. Posted by Trisha on August 4, 2008 at 9:06 am

    Nicole,

    have you tried just a plain cup with no lid? of course he will need help and can’t walk around with it, but it may help him get better aquainted with a cup. I was going to suggest a Nuby, since the soft spout is very similar to a bottle, but looks like you already gave that a go. I was also going to suggest a straw, but looks like he refused that as well. My daughter really liked the take-n-toss cups. She gave up bottles on her own at 10 months. She prefered the sippy, so I am just going to tell you what I would try. Maybe someone else can offer some real-life experience suggestions.

    1. Let him keep the bottle for 1 or 2 more weeks and try again
    2. Put the bottles away so he has no other choice
    3. Just keep offering, as you currently are. Make sure he understands how to use it, show him how it works. If you only just started offering a sippy recently, it will take him some time to get used to it. I think I started at about 6 or 7 mo with my DD, so it was another 3 or 4 months until she only took a sippy.

    Above all, be patient. 12 months is usually the time to take the bottle away because of increased risk of cavities/tooth decay. Also remember that if he is eating table foods really well, he’s getting liquids from those as well. If you keep offering water in a sippy throughout the day, he’ll probably get plenty. Don’t worry if he is not drinking multiple ounces at a time since he no longer has breastmilk or formula as his primary nutrition.

    Hope that helps. If anyone else has suggestions for Nicole, please chime in!

  49. Posted by nicole on August 5, 2008 at 7:42 pm

    Trisha,
    Thank you for the advice. I’ll for surely try what you have suggested. I need to be more consistent with the sippy cup offer and not give up so soon. He LOVES to drink from an adult cup and from a bottle of water, which is why I thought this would be easier. But he doesn’t have anything else that ‘soothes’ him (no blankies, stuffed animals, minimal pacifier use), so the bottle could be his soothing item.
    Once again, thank you for your help!

    Hi Nicole,

    If you think your son is using the bottle as a comfort object, maybe try to introduce a lovey of some type — a bear, blanket or whatever. My DD carries her Dolly everywhere and has been attached to her since about 7 months. It has certainly helped in many situations — leaving her at daycare or at grandmas, going to bed, when she gets a boo-boo or feels sick. A lovey can be priceless when a child adopts one. Just make sure to have backups and change them out so they all get the same worn look after time. We have 3 Dolly’s!

    My DD also LOVES to drink from a water bottle and by 19 months had a regular “big kid” cup with no lid as long as we were sitting at the table.

    When was this list last updated? I’ve heard that Avent was supposed to come out with a new line of BPA Free products in the summer of 2008. Does anyone have any information on this? Or does anyone know of any other bottles that will work with the Second Nature nipples? The Second Nature nipples worked well with my first child, and I’d like to try them again with my second child (who will be born any day now) but the Second Nature bottles contain BPA. I know that the nipples fit on Avent bottles, but according to this list only the Avent disposables are BPA-Free, and I don’t think those would work. The Second Nature nipples are made from silicone, so they should be fine, right? Arrgh, this whole BPA thing is so frustrating. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Mellissa, the nipples are fine –no BPA. Last I heard, Avent had no plans to make a BPA-free bottle, though I think they were actually considering it. I know Dr. Brown’s has released a glass and polypropylene bottle.

    I will look up the Avent bottle again, as I have not checked in about 2 months.

    And sorry, I am not personally familiar with the 2nd Nature nipple, but hopefully someone else will have some tips!

    Do you have any information on the Nuk bottles and pacifiers concerning BPA?

    Melodi,

    You pushed me to get my BPA/Phthalate free paci list complete and posted. Here it is! http://amomsblog.wordpress.com/2008/08/19/bpa-free-pacifiers/

    As for the Nuk bottles, they do contain BPA. The ones listed above are the only Gerber bottles I know of that are BPA-free. I do not know their plans to make any additional BPA-free bottles.

    Thanks!

    Tammy, BRU has been known to take back bottles. I have heard different stories, but it seems if you no longer have a receipt, they will give you store credit, but there may be some contraints, like you have to get the same brand or many you have to use that credit that same day. It’s worth calling your local store and speaking to a manager about it before making the trip. I called mine and they were happy to help, eventhough it had been over 2 years since I got the Dr. Brown’s but he said they stand behind all the products they carry. I give BRU big praise bc when I called Dr. Brown’s directly, they were very snooty and rude. So much in fact, that I will not be purchasing anything from that company again.

    Good luck

    I have two Avent sippy cups green and a pink one that they showed on the news are they affected with BPA? If so what do i do as far as getting my money back.

      Tara, since the FDA is saying BPA is “safe,” so far no company is offering refunds, nor are they recalling any products. Check out my “cheat sheet” on safe sippy cups, as there are many affordable alternatives, unless you want to avoid plastic altogether, then a stainless steel sippy will set you back about $15 each, but they’ll be with you for the long haul, unlike plastic.

      You can also call the manufacturer. If you purchased the cups recently, they may offer a refund if you are “not completely satisfied!” :)

      Contact the manufacturer, or return them to the store you purchased them from. Most are not doing recalls since the FDA says BPA is safe. but if you bought these because they were supposed to be BPA free and now they are saying they are not, I certainly thing a replacement or refund is in order.

  68. I just came across a Canadian site selling 9oz Weego Bottles for $10.99 each. I’ve NEVER seen a cheaper price anywhere…this is crazy.

    I just purchased 10 of them.

    Good luck.

    What about things from before they put recycle numbers on them? I have some 9oz Nuby Cups that say Luvn’care copyright 1996 and some playtex & tupperware with no numbers. I’ve also been trying to find out about plastic electric teakettles with no numbers on the bottom – any idea about those?
    Thanks!

      Bridget, I would contact the manufacturer of those products to ask since it sounds like your products are from 10+ years ago. I would hate to give you bad information. For the tea kettles, I would not heat anything in plastic. I would let those go, or if they are eye-catching, put them on a shelf for decor. Sorry I am not more help.

    Study by Health Canada (governmental equivalent of FDA)

    shows trace leaching of BPA in many “BPA Free” Sippies.

    chekc it out, its impartial and scientific:

      If the packaging says BPA Free then yes, it should be. You can call the manufacturer to be sure if you have concerns.
