BPA in everything???
I have recently started paying more attention to all the toxins "they" say are in everything I use in my house. Okay, so maybe I am exaggerating, but I do find it frustrating that so many items I use on a daily basis are now being found toxic, especially for kids.
In her article on BPA-free sippy cups, Keeper of the Home provides great links for more information about BPA. She also gives the results of her in-home testing of several sippy cups.
I'm not sure if I am ready to fear all plastic in my home, but I did purchase BPA-free sippy cups this weekend. My kids were in need of new cups anyway, and I decided it wouldn't hurt to buy the "safer"ones. I purchased the less-expensive Avent Magic Cups with the handles for my daughter, and a new cup from Playtex, the Baby Lil' Gripper Twist 'n Click (which was not reviewed in the article) for my son.
What do you think about BPA? Have you done anything to limit or remove it from your home?
