So, my 13 month old ds is all set to start using his klean kanteen sippy. It comes w/ two avent sippy adapters. I was just wondering whether the sippy adapters had BPA as well (they are hard plastic) and whether this negates the value of the metal cup. Anybody know?

i'm not sure about BPA in the sippy adapters, but remember the water is in contact with the adapter for a relatively short period of time, just when flowing into the mouth. the majority of time it is in the metal bottle. i know Born Free has a completely BPA free sippy and so does the Safe Sippy (but i think its sold out everywhere right now).<br><br>
maybe somebody else will know about the sipy adapter ring...did you try to contact the company?

We bought these as well, and according to the klean kanteen website<br><br><i>we only use non-leaching Polypropylene #5 (PP#5) in our caps, adapters and sippy spouts</i><br><br>
I just hate thinking about all of the plastic sippy cups and lids I remember seeing in my friends cupboards, and how many times they were put through the dishwasher. It really makes me angry that companies are not more careful, thoughtful, (can't think of the best word) when making products for babies.

Maybe the word you're looking for is "moral"?!?<br><br>
We have a Klean Kanteen sippy and were promised by the woman at the store where we bought it that Advent sippy tops are made with "good" plastic.

DH and I both use Kean Kanteens all day, we have about 8 now I think! I didn't think of using their sippy cups, we have been using born free. I might have to get DS his very own Kanteen!

Hi there,<br><br>
All our kids (and us parents) are using the Klean Kanteen containers... our youngest uses the sippy and we were assured it was safe. It's also comforting to know that the water if held up right is store in a safe container anyway and they water is only briefly passing through the plastic. My older two use the klean kanteens with the screw top which is completely stainless steel. They really like them and they've been super durable. We've made a point of labeling everybodies kanteens and stuff with the labels from <a href="http://www.christa.mabel.ca" target="_blank">www.christa.mabel.ca</a> (not affiliated) as well because they are kind of expensive. They are safe as well and completely washable and kind of help rid ourselves of that disposible mentality. hth. CJ

Born Free sippy spouts (both the hard and soft) fit inside the Avent ring. My friend uses those on her Kleen Kanteen bottles without a problem.

We used Avent bottles and I have tried using the sippy adapters with the Avent bottles and the kids can't seem to get the bottles to their mouths to use the sippy sup without bumping their noses. My eldest had the same trouble. Is the Klean Kanteen shaped to be easier to use? I hate to spend the money and not have them be able to use them.

Hmmm. I'd try the Born Free spouts with your Avent bottles first. They are bigger and brighter so maybe it would work better for your little one.

I got this from KK:<br><br><br>
Hello Ashley -<br><br>
I do not have material testing from Avent regarding their spouts. Below is<br>
the info I have received from Avent in the past:<br><br>
According to Avent, the green sippy spout is made of FDA approved Evoprene<br>
and Polypropylene. They also state that the no spouts from Philips/Avent<br>
contain any Phthalates (used in PVC) or BPA.<br><br>
FYI - Polypropylene is plastic #5, a non-leaching plastic, the same material<br>
that our sports caps are made out of. Polycarbonate is plastic #7, probably<br>
the worst type of leaching plastic that there is, and it is the material<br>
that Nalgene water bottles are made of.<br><br>
I have read studies done on Avent's bottles being unsafe, but I have yet to<br>
see anything about their sippy spouts. Please note that we are tooling our<br>
own sippy cap so that we can eliminate Avent products from our product line<br>
all together. This should be available sometime in 2008.<br><br>
If you have any further questions please contact me via the info below.<br><br>
