“I am so glad to see all the attention that this topic is getting lately! I have been reading about this for the past year and it hasn’t seemed to catch on to the masses until the last couple of months. Of course, I had used the Dr. Brown bottles, not knowing about the BPA issues. Once I became aware, I switched to the Born Free bottles. The bottles were great but we had issues with leaking with the Born Free sippy cups. We had similar issues with the Avent Magic cups, which are also BPA free (and affordable). So our new favorites are the Klean Kanteen and the Sigg cups. The Klean Kanteen are steel containers that actually use Avent sippy spouts. My boys LOVE them. I ordered them fromAmazon.com and you can also find them at Great Outdoor Provisions and REI, as well as www.kleankanteen.com.

Wrap N Mat is a great alternative to plastic baggies. Did you know that over 20,000,000 baggies are thrown away each day? The mats are lead free and some are made in the US. Again, remember that every little bit helps to make this earth a better place for our children and their children!!”
