So, after months of reading about the dangers of Bisphenol-A in baby bottles I finally decided to toss the plastic baby bottles and buy some glass ones. Apparently I'm not the only one, because those suckers are nearly impossible to find nowadays. Great! The message is getting out. I imagine sanitation workers scratching their heads, trying to figure out why all of a sudden the landfills are overflowing with Avent and Dr. Brown's bottles.
My son is about to start solids, so I was at the supermarket picking up some commercially-prepared baby food. I've always bought the ones in glass jars (maybe because of nostalgia, I don't know), but out of curiosity I took a look at the Gerber first foods in the square plastic containers. Guess what? They're packaged in #7 plastic.
I'm starting to think manufacturers of baby products are out to drive me crazy. Why take the risk? Why not go for the safest materials and ingredients? Whyyyyy?
