Children and Plastics

Caring for our children’s safety and health is a matter of concern to all our parents, adoptive or natural. Recently published information draws attention to hazards posed to our children by commonly used products.

A widely used additive to plastic products has been identified as having potential health risks to children, particularly infants, who want to put everything into their mouths. This additive, bisphenol-a, also known as BPA, is used to make plastic products harder. It can be found in baby bottles as well as in many children’s toys. Is is also used in the liners of food containers.

We have posted a short article to our web site about plastics in our baby products where you can find more information and references.
