Yucky Plastic

So after the baby shampoo info….it got me thinking about plastic. (of course that was another chain email..I think). You may have heard about all of the yucky plastic stuff:  Bisphenol-A, PVC, Lead, Phthalates, and Nitrosamines.  I am sure all of us trendy mommies know never to cook in plastic and then my friend told me about sippy cups and  how many of them are made with yucky bad plastic.

My kids have a water bottle next to them at night and it was some cutsie, probably yucky plastic one.  My friend and I purchased together water bottles from http://www.kleankanteen.com and we love them! They even have interchangeable tops like a sippy cup top or regular sport bottle and it keeps the drinks cold too! 
There is also a cool sippy cup from the safe sippy.  http://www.thesafesippy.com
 

But what about for babies?? I used to use the disposable plastic liners and I wonder how safe those are? I remember in the hospital they gave me glass ones and there is this great site that sells some neat things as well as glass bottles. Check it out.   http://www.healthykitchenware.com

    Oh, very good! I always cringe when I buy a bottle of water at a convenience store – normally I keep a refillable bottle of water in my car but sometimes you just need a cold fresh bottle and I worry about the plastic and impact on landfills (or even the energy needed to recycle them!) The Safe Sippy is uber-cute and they sell it at a store near me – I think I see a shopping trip in my near future!
