Q: What are the safest baby’s bottles and nipples to use? –Ginny, NY
A: Great question, because some plasticizers, called phthalates, can cause reproductive harm, cancer, asthma, premature breast development, and organ damage.
The Safest Baby Bottles
Tempered glass. The next best is #5 plastic (polyethylene or polypropylene) plastic #5 (discard if cracked or scratched). Avoid polycarbonate and PVC.
The Safest Nipples
Choose clear silicone nipples over rubber. Discard any that are cracked.
