Toxic Baby Bottles Banned

This Nuby bottle is BPA-free. Buy it at Baby Bungalow.

Bisphenol-A (BPA) has been declared toxic (and particularly dangerous to newborns and babies) in Canada, and the country is now moving to ban all baby bottles containing this chemical. In the U.S. the FDA says there is no cause for concern, however three states are trying to stop its use.

Attorneys general in Connecticut, New Jersey, and Delaware have asked companies that make baby bottles and baby formula containers to stop using BPA.

A few weeks ago, I blogged about BPA in baby bottles and pacifiers and offered some BPA-free alternatives. Some Baby Mamas were concerned about the chemical, others weren't. But there is still a lot of discussion about BPA on CafeMom.

Now that Canada has declared bisphenol-A toxic, especially for babies, does this change your opinion about using products with BPA or are you comfortable with the FDA's position that BPA is perfectly safe?
