15 BPA-Free Baby Bottles and Sippy Cups

You won't have to worry about Bisphenol-A in your baby's milk when you feed her from one of these bottles or cups.
Green to Grow BPA-Free Baby Bottle 5 oz Regular Neck

With the Canadian government banning all baby bottles made with Bisphenol-A (BPA), and Wal-Mart pulling some BPA bottles off their shelves, you're probably confused about just how you're supposed to safely get drinks into your kid's belly. BPA, the controversial chemical in question, is used to produce polycarbonate plastic, the material from which many clear, hard plastic baby bottles and sippy cups are made. BPA has been shown to cause health problems in animals, and tests have found that after repeated use small amounts of BPA can leech into the milk, juice, or water in bottles. However, there's no conclusive data yet on BPA's effects on humans.

Still, many experts agree that it's a good idea to avoid feeding your kids from bottles or cups made with BPA. To set your mind at ease, we've rounded up nine great bottles and sippy cups that are all completely BPA-free.

Green to Grow

What it is: Made from BPA-free and phthalate-free plastic, each of these 5- and 10-ounce dishwasher-safe baby bottles can be outfitted with beginner (0-3 months), intermediate (3-6 months), or expert (6+ months) nipples.
What we love: Run by a socially minded Los Angeles-based husband and wife team, Green to Grow packages its products in 100 percent recycled paper, donates 1 percent of its revenue to environmental causes, and runs a "Bottle to Babies" program that distributes baby bottles to women's and homeless shelters. Plus, we love the cute fruit on the front.
What we don't: The nipple is a little harder than most, so depending on how particular your baby is, it might be a hard sell.
