What is BPA?

Posted by

In 1999, ABC-TV reported on an unnerving plastic component called BPA. It was reportedly used in all plastic containers, including baby bottles, teething rings, toys and even juice liners and the insides of cans. And so the question was asked - do the petrochemicals that make up plastic pose a real tangible health risks to infants and children? Study after scientific study suggests an alarming possibility. 

Laboratory tests showed that Bisphenol A, (or BPA), even in small amounts, could leach out of the plastic baby bottles and potentially make its way into milk and from there, into baby's digestive system. And while the amount of BPA that ended up in the milk was very small (one part per billion), scientific studies concluded that even this small amount was enough to cause "actual" effects on animals.

The alarming concern, among many, was that it disrupted the development process, impacting things like intelligence, behavior, learning ability, reproductive ability, fertility many years after exposure and a myriad of serious health complications later on in life.

As a result BPA became a banned substance in plastic containers in many countries including Canada, countries of the European Union, China, Malaysia and others.

While BPA is not banned in Australia, most parents are choosing BPA free milk bottles and other containers as well as BPA free toys.

Kinder Baby offers 4oz and 8oz bottles, and pre-sterilized, disposable and BPA-free liners to fit both bottle sizes, for your convenience and baby’s health and safety.

You gave them life. Now give them a healthy start.
