Just be sure you don’t use a plastic bottle that contains the highly publicized BPA. I’ve been preaching about using Sigg Bottles because they are not made of plastic that can leach into your drinking water causing harmful chemicals to enter your body. I wish I would have placed my order for Sigg before the news release came out. I do have a few available, some kids ones with soccer kids on it, but most of my adult ones are sold out. Here’s what Idealbyte has to say.
- Avoid clear, hard plastic bottles marked with a 7 or PC (polycarbonate).
- BornFree Bottles – each bottle holds 9 ounces of the white stuff. Also: a glass version ($27/3).
- Babylife Wee-go Bottle – another 9-ouncer that comes in a protective, dishwasher-safe silicone sheath to avoid breakage ($18).
- Camelbak Better Bottle – 25-ounce bottle made from a new, clear, safer plastic called Tritan; in 5 colors ($9).
- Alternative-material bottles cost a bit more than the usual polycarbonate-plastic ones, but they’re widely available and you can worry less about nasty chems slipping into your and your kids’ drinks.
