BPA's Worries and Sippy Cups

My two year old loves his Winnie The Pooh sippy cups, but mom is not so much enthralled anymore. Not since I've been learning about Bisphenol A and phthalates anyway. So I have been on a mission to find BPA free sippy cups that I can somehow convince my little guy to use and let Pooh retreat to the far corners of my kitchen cabinet. I think I have found Pooh's successor--this sippy cup from Kid Basix that I I saw featured on Celebrity Baby Blog. The cup is non-leaching food-grade stainless steel, with a rubber sleeve to help protect the cup when it is dropped (because you know that cup is gonna hit the floor several times over!). But for me, the very best part is that this is a BPA free sippy cup-- certified free of those chemicals! I know the cap is plastic (who knew one day I would shudder at the word plastic?), but is Polypropylene (#5 plastic), which is the most stable of all the plastics that is Bisphenol A, phthalates and DEHA free.

If only these sippys had Winnie The Pooh on them...it would make the switch go so much more smoothly. Sigh.

I've been searching for some BPA Free sippies that are better designed than Kleen Kanteen. I hadn't seen these before. I will try these out! Thanks for the post1
