Gentlefeed bottles from Mebby – the safer way to feed your baby
The chemical content of baby bottles has been a hot topic in the USA for some time and in April
The chemical content of baby bottles has been a hot topic in the USA for some time two years ago San Francisco became the first state to ban the sale of baby feeding bottles that contain the chemical Bisphenol-A. Since then the debate has escalated as the US media uncovered the story that the baby bottle manufacturers have tried to keep hidden.
Because of their body weight, children are far more susceptible to adverse affects from chemical exposures than adults, even at very low doses, with children under the age of three being the most vulnerable.
Bisphenol-A, also known as BPA, is used in the making of polycarbonate bottles, plastic food and drink packaging and is known to cause neurological and hormonal damage to animals.
Lab tests have shown that when baby bottles are heated, as many parents do to warm formula or breast milk, potentially dangerous levels of BPA leach into the liquid. While industry leaders continue to defend the use of BPA, it has been linked by scientists to cancers, impaired immune function, early onset of puberty, obesity, diabetes, hyperactivity and possibly autism.
Environmentalists are calling for clearer labeling by manufacturers whose baby products contain BPA, so that parents can make an informed decision before purchasing equipment that could pose a potential long term danger to their child.
Earlier this month the National Childbirth Trust (NCT) stood up to be counted and called for companies to stop using Bisphenol A (BPA) in the manufacturing of their baby bottles.
Despite the bans in San Francisco and Canada BPA is still present in many of the baby bottles sold in the UK. This is made worse by unclear labeling and many parents are buying products containing this potentially dangerous chemical without even realising it.
Mebby produce a BPA free range of Gentlefeed baby bottles made from chemical free Polyether Sulfone (PES), an innovative medical grade plastic that is honey coloured, hygienic and unbreakable. Mebby bottles are available in three sizes 150ml, 250ml and 280ml and feature an anti-colic silicone teat.
