I try to stay away from bandwagons. I don’t like to go with the flow. I really prefer to do my own thing and think my own thoughts. I’ve been heartily resisting the BPA in the bottles panic over the past weeks on the grounds that it’s not the big deal some are making it out to be.
I managed to keep a clear conscience, right up until I found out that many Babies R Us are offering a full refund on bottles that contain BPA.
Wow. This must be a bigger deal than I thought.
Wondering if it was for real, I called the Harrisburg store, and the clerk confirmed the offer. Joe and I packed up all of the bottles we’ve been using for 11 months and 3 weeks, and we took them in to the BRU store. They gave us a few cents less than $80 in store credit, which we used to buy some glass bottles, new nipples, and formula.
I liked our Ventaire bottles a lot better than the new glass ones, but the glass ones are undoubtedly safer.
I noticed that a lot of the bottles still being sold have BPA, which makes me wonder about the bottle industry. What’s going on here? Have they not gotten the memo??
