I heard they were safe too. Also, Walmart makes a bottle that is safe as well. Its the standard size- and may fit your pump.

I wasn't sure so I looked it up on Google :giggle2: This site says it has no BPA and I found nothing bad on any other sites so I think you are good to go momma! I will look at a few more though and write back if I find anything that states otherwise.

Yep it is just the liners that you really need to be concerned about since the bottle doesn't actually touch the milk. They are all made of plastic that is not on the list of "harmful" plastics. We use em and love them. Try the preformed liners, they rock.

In a book I have ..Going Green for Life" it states that disposible liners can leach phthalates which is another hormone disrupting chemical in plastic..;(

Can you post a link to find this book? I did a quick look up on Google, but couldn't find it. Thanks!

The playtex drop in liners, themselves, are BPA free BUT not the bottles. So Vent-aire would have BPAs. If you are planning to just use the drop in ones, it should be fine, that is what I plan on using as well.

However, I didn't know the liners could have other chemicals/hormones though. *sighs* So many things to check on to see if an item is safe for your baby when we should be living in a world where all baby stuff SHOULD be safe and not marketed just for extra $$.

In regina, they actually just took everything playtex off the shelves,including liners... there must be something in them. I don't think there is anything safe out there anymore...
