BPA Toxic Baby Items

Hi All,

I spent quite a lot of time looking online for a USA store that would ship the Avent Isis to go breast pump to Canada. Well I just found out from one Canadian retailer that it's banned in Canada because it contains BPA!!

For those of you who aren't aware what it is, please read here:

wiki: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bisphenol_A

There is a countrywide ban on products that contain BPA due to it's side effects on humans and especially infants.

If you're unsure if the bottles or pumps you currently own contain it, the number code on the bottom is "7" or call the manufacture to ask if it contains BPA.

Cheers Yummy Mums!

Yeah....I used Avent bottles with my first child but am going to use Born Free brand with this one as its BPA free.  I think the BPA comes out when you heat the bottles, so I think you may be OK with the pump as long as you put the milk somewhere else to store it.
