Which bottles have bisphenol-a?

Hi Everyone:

I have been searching to find out which bottles contain the bisphenol-a?  I have been boiling my bottles and have concerns.  I am using the Playtex Advance Wide system.   I am going to Walmart in the morning to find a glass system or get more information if possible.

Any advice/help would be greatly appreciated.

I am due in June and I have done alot of research on this topic. They say Avent and a few others, but I decided that I am going to use the Playtex drop ins. They have been proven safe and are highly reccomended. Hope this helps.. Good Luck and let me know what you decide to do.

Here are some links with some good info.  Also dr has come out with some glass bottles and some plastic ones that are bisphenol free.  I've see the glass ones in stores but the other ones I've only see on line.  Avent has also come out with a disposable drop in system.

I did some research on this and found that if the package does not say BPA free it has it in it.  I did not find any at stores that said BPA free.   I did find a bunch, color and not, that have the 7 on the bottom and many that did not.  It is not required to put it on there.  I did find that you could go online and buy some that are $15 each.  I opted for the glass bottles.  They were 3 or $5 and I love them.  The drop ins are also good.  From what I read if you dont microwave, use the dishwasher, or boil, very little BPA is released.  I have a few avent bottles that I take on trips because I dont have to worry about the glass breaking.  I clean them with warm soapy water and just make room temp bottles.  This is such a hard topic because no real study results will be clear until many many years from now (about 20 years).  It is all precautionary for now.  Apparently this is also a problem with lotions in plastic bottles.  Anyone come up with a solution for that one?
