The FDA website has the following suggestions:
- Follow health guidelines to breastfeed babies for at least 12 months whenever possible. If that's not an option, the FDA states that iron-fortified infant formula "is the safest and most nutritious option. The benefit of a stable source of good nutrition from infant formula outweighs the potential risk of BPA exposure."
- Don't heat cans of infant formula on the stove or in boiling water. You can serve it at room temperature or run warm water over the outside of the baby's bottle.
- Discard scratched baby bottles and infant feeding cups.
- Don't put boiling water or very hot water, infant formula, or other liquids into bottles that contain BPA when preparing them for your child.
- Only use containers marked "dishwasher safe" in the dishwasher and those labeled "microwave safe" in the microwave.
- Discard all food containers with scratches, as they may harbor germs and may lead to greater release of BPA.
