Over the past 6 to 7 months, I have been using a wide range of AVENT’s products — breastpump, washable breast pads, feeding bottles, steriliser and warmer. As the potential adverse effects of bisphenol A (BPA) on infants became more widely reported, I decided to switch Baby V’s feeding accessories to BPA-free ones.
Although Baby V doesn’t drink milk from bottles, I occasionally freeze some milk to be subsequently warmed up for cup-feeding. The sterilisation and warming up processes (exposure to high temperature) could lead to BPA leach.
About two weeks ago, I finally saw BPA-free bottles at Robinsons and Isetan (The Gardens, Mid Valley). The new bottles are made from Polyether Sulphone (PES) — a BPA-free material with a natural honey-coloured tint, as stated on the packaging.
However, they were steeply priced relatively to the ordinary range:
- 260ml (9oz) bottles: 1 for RM49 or 2 for RM95
- 120ml (4oz) bottles: 1 for RM43
At Robinsons, the promotion was 20% discount and another 5% off by using Mastercard.
At Isetan, the discount was 10% rebate for CIMB cardholders on the last Sunday of the month.
Due to the high prices, I bought only two large bottles for immediate use with the breastpump. For storage purpose, I would certainly search for more cost-efficient bottles.
As for the many gently-used BPA-containing bottles that I have, they can still be used as water bottles (for cooled water) or recycled to store non-food items.
- Free from BPA
- Work well with existing AVENT feeding accessories
- Highly-priced (lack bundled deals)
By the way, AVENT’s BPA-free manual breastpump is also available at Robinsons at RM289 (20% discount was not applicable).
