What is bisphenol?

Bisphenol A (BPA) is a chemical used in the manufacture of plastics and resins. Specifically polycarbonates, which are plastics used to manufacture food containers, such as bottles, plates and cups.

This polycarbonate can also be found in epoxy resins, which are used to make the protective coating on food and beverage containers, as well as in thermal printing inks (for purchase tickets).

Why is bisphenol (BPA) dangerous?

Bisphenol A (BPA) is hazardous because when a container made of this material, polycabonates and/or epoxy resins is used, it can travel in the form of small amounts to the food and/or beverages it stores.

As a result, although it is currently authorized for use in plastic materials intended to be in contact with food, there is a specific migration limit of 0.05 mg per kg of food. Furthermore, its use in the manufacture of plastic baby bottles has been banned since 2011, and its use for thermal paper has also been banned since 2020.

The best bisphenol A (BPA)-free baby bottle

The best bisphenol A free baby bottle At Happymami, we are well aware of this regulation, and during the development of our Happymami baby bottles, we decided to go beyond just complying with food safety regulations (BPA). That’s why our teats, like the cups of our Happymami bottles, are made from the highest quality medical grade silicone.

Thus, you get the safest bottle for your baby, being free of bisphenol (BPA) but also free of BPS and BPF, as other toxins that plastic bottles may contain. And if it falls, it doesn’t break as it might with glass bottles. We want to offer you the best! That’s why we look for the best material for our bottles.

What does bisphenol A (BPA) do to your health?

The effects of bisphenol A (BPA) on human health and animal studies. High doses of Bisphenol A (BPA) are likely to affect the kidney and liver, with its main adverse effect being its ability to influence the human hormone system as an endocrine disruptor. These endocrine disruptors interfere with the functioning of the hormone system by supplanting natural hormones, blocking their action and increasing or decreasing their levels.

This would ultimately affect the reproductive, nervous, immune, metabolic and cardiovascular systems. It also increases the likelihood of developing cancer.

Why is bisphenol A (BPA) still used if it is harmful?

This question is difficult to answer, but in the end according to EFSA, a combined dietary and non-dietary (powder, cosmetics and thermal paper) exposure to Bisphenol A is considerably below the tolerable daily intake. It is set at 4µg/kg bw/day, which is a dose that does not pose a health risk to a consumer in any age group (including neonates, infants and adolescents).

This maximum daily intake is taken from an EFSA study on the likely adverse effects of bisphenol A on the kidney and mammary glands of mice. Using a BMDL10 of 8,960 µg/kg bw/day, for changes in mean relative kidney weight, although BMDL10 could not be calculated for mammary gland effects. Based on this BMDL10 the temporary tolerable daily intake was established.

How do I know if a product contains bisphenol A (BPA)?

However, as we have seen, since 2011, according to the EU Regulation of 2011, it is no longer possible to produce baby bottles with these plastics based on bisphenol A (BPA). And in addition to having given you the best solution with our Happymami bottles made of medical grade silicone free of BPA, BPS and BPF, as plastic bottles can be, and if they fall they do not break as can happen with glass bottles.

To help you we bring you some recommendations from the Spanish Association of Paediatrics, which gives us a series of useful tips to ensure that we are buying the best for the baby.

  1. See the label

It seems silly, but it is essential to make sure you read the labels to use BPA-free bottles, and if there is no mention of any that makes you wonder.

  1. Get to know the types of products

It may seem difficult, but plastic packaging should have a number indicating the type used in the product. For polycarbonate it is 7, although there are polycarbonates with or without BPA.

  1. The translucency of the bottle

Opaque plastic bottles do not usually use BPA-containing materials.

  1. The material

You may have thought of using glass then, but be careful. They could break when handled. Therefore our recommendation is to use silicone.

Conclusion: Bisphenol A (BPA)-free baby bottle the recommended one

In short, the best thing to do is to look for a baby bottle free of bisphenol A (BPA), which does not contain chemicals that pose a risk to your baby. It has been shown that BPA has a particular effect on a developing organism such as our children, affecting the endocrine system, their defences and the appearance of tumours.

With all these tips you should be able to identify these plastics in your baby’s bottle, although you will always have other alternatives. Remember that at Happymami we use medical silicone for our made-to-measure bottles because, as well as being safe for your baby, they are free from BPA, BPS, BPF and other toxins used in plastic bottles. It gives you a natural and warm feeling so you don’t have to worry about anything.

Sabemos que durante la toma se produce una elongación del pezón, y la hemos tenido en cuenta durante el desarrollo de nuestras tetinas. Selecciona el pezón con el que te sientas más representada previo a la toma. 

Y por último, si usas pezoneras ten en cuenta el tamaño de la pezonera.

[B] Escogemos el flujo según la edad del bebé.

Recuerda que si vas a usar cereales, tienen una densidad mayor a la leche líquida, por eso tenemos disponible un flujo exclusivo para cereales y/o papillas

matrona

[LM] Existen corrientes de usar un flujo menor correspondiente a la edad del bebé.

Con Happymami no hace falta, nosotras para desarrollar nuestros Happymamis estudiamos la lactancia materna en su conjunto. La eyección de leche materna, el flujo de salida en cada etapa, la succión del bebé, las necesidades del bebé…. Y a partir de ahí desarrollamos nuestros flujos.

Entonces si tú tienes un bebé de 4 meses y le pones un flujo para bebés de 2 meses, lo que probablemente tenga más riesgo es que tu bebé rechace el biberón.

Por eso nuestra recomendación es que cojas el flujo que le corresponde por edad, y sigas las pautas que te daremos al realizar tu compra para que tu bebé coja el biberón sin afectar a tu lactancia materna.

[B] Si tu bebé sufre muchos cólicos necesitamos un biberón con un sellado total, que corresponde a la inclinación pronunciada. Por el contrario, usaremos una inclinación media, para casos aislados de cólicos. Y una inclinación suave en casos especiales indicados por nuestras matronas.

matrona

[LM] Puedes ponerte de perfil y observarte el pecho.

  • ¿Tienes un pecho totalmente plano? cogemos inclinación suave.
  • Si acaba totalmente en punta, escoge inclinación pronunciada.
  • O si más bien es redondito, inclinación media.

Si tienes dudas entre cualquier forma y redondeado, nuestro consejo es que cojas la inclinación media que corresponde al redondeado.

[Biberón exclusivamente] Si es el primer biberón que vas a usar desde el nacimiento, nuestra recomendación es que escojas un pezón medio.Por otra parte, si tu bebé ha usado ya otros biberones y los rechaza, o si al usar el chupete le genera muchos ascos y arcadas a tu bebé escogeremos pezón pequeño.

Sabemos que durante la toma se produce una elongación del pezón, y la hemos tenido en cuenta durante el desarrollo de nuestras tetinas. Por eso se tomaron justo esos parámetros de la medida del pezón antes de realizar la toma
