Many people have been saying this for years.

They were muted with "the science is settled, it's been tested and approved by the FDA, it's all safe"

Many new mothers consider switching to the bottle because breastfeeding ain't easy! Months of breastfeeding take a toll on new mothers and there isn't nearly enough support from society to encourage them to keep at it. Breast may be best for baby, but for mothers, sometimes a pump/bottle-shaped break can be life-saving.

Microplastics are now in the food chain. Shame on us!

Thank you for sharing this information. I am glad I bought my kids a glass bottle when they were born and not some plastic stuff.

I encourage future parents to do the same.

The old fashioned way is the best way..the natural way.

Does anyone think mammals rule the planet because and at the same time can't nurse children the natural way.
