With all the talk about BPA in plastic bottles and the dangers of it, many moms have found themselves raiding their cupboards, throwing out plastic bottles by the dozens. But what to replace them with? BPA-free plastic bottles in the store are expensive (I just bought 2 for $20) so replenishing an entire supply could take a huge bite out of the budget.
But spending a fortune isn’t necessary! Next time you’re out, check in the baby aisle for Enfamil‘s ready-to-eat formula (also called nursette bottles). I just bought a box with 8 6oz bottles for less than $20. You’ll need to attach your own nipple (well, not your nipple…you know what I mean), but the formula is packaged in heavy glass bottles (make sure you find the glass bottles!). So after you either use the formula or give it away or (gasp!) toss it, you’ll have a decent stock of BPA-free bottles for only about $2 or $3 each!
