I believe the majority of the "safe" plastic sippies are made with #1, 2, and 5 plastics. There's a brief overview of the different types of plastic here. Mainly, you want to avoid #3 PVC and #7 Polycarbonate...those are the main "toxic plastic" culprits.

But yeah, its really difficult to know what to do. Even with the stainless bottles, they have plastic spouts. Its nearly impossible to avoid.
