Baby's and young children are especially vulnerable to harmful chemicals as their little organs are not yet mature enough to proparly rid off toxins that we all come into contact with almost everyday. Extra care must be taken to reduce our children's exposure to harmful chemical like Bisphenol A and PVC both of which have been found in baby plastic bottles, toys and plastic food storage containers.
BPA simply stands for Bisphenol A, a toxic chemical that has been used in hard plastic products for many years. Bisphenol A is harmful to us and our children and should be avoided. It is found in Polycarbonate plastics and epoxy resins. Polycarbonate and Epoxy resins have been used in making food storage containers such as baby feeding bottles, water bottles and cans.
Polycarbonate plastics are commonly used in the manufacturing of products such as plastic baby bottles, plates, toys and sippy cups. The FDA has indicated that Bisphenol A can be potentially harmful to small children and encourage parents to reduce their children's exposure to it.
Finding Bisphenol A free products is becoming easier. Many baby product manufacturing companies proudly indicate that their products are Bisphenol A free. Having said that, it is important to remember that there are still many products out there that contain this harmful chemical but do not indicate it. So here are a few guidelines that I have put together to help you minimize your little ones exposure.
