It's Official! The FDA Officially Bans the Use of BPA in Baby Bottles & Sippy Cups

Took long enough, right? After admitting that they had “some concern about the potential effects of BPA on the brain, behavior and prostate gland of fetuses, infants and children” back in 2012, the FDA finally voted to officially ban the use of the chemical in baby bottles and children’s drinking cups on Tuesday.

While this is a huge milestone, it doesn’t mean parents are entirely in the clear. The FDA only banned the use of BPA in baby bottles and sippy cups–that means manufacturers can still technically use it in drinking containers that aren’t designed for  kids, plus other lunch box storage containers made from hard plastic.

So while you’re on the hunt for all those BTS essentials this summer, make sure you do the BPA-free check. Or, just shop these BPA-free products we love.
