I have been trying to find an alternative to polycarbonate bottles and also to find out what mine are made of. I currently use Avent with my 4 month old and also did so with my 3yr old. What are Avent bottles made of? On one particular site that sells them it says polycarbonate and I've just read in one of the threads that they're polyproplyene.<br><br>
I was all ready to buy a set of evenflo glass bottles when I discovered that evenflo does not exist in the UK and you can't get any US seller to ship out of the country. I have now found a make called MAM who make polyproplyene bottles, (if these are safe!) that I can get hold of - but I just don't know if it is necessary to change from Avent. Their website gives no info on materials used.<br><br>
I'd really appreciate some clear answers as I've spent several weeks now going round in circles and don't want to continue using something which is potentially bad for my son any longer than I can help it.

Medela and Ameda make polypropylene bottles. You can order them from their sites <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

Avent bottles and pumps are made from polycarbonate.
