Many of us try our best to reduce the amount of unneeded plastic in our homes. But sometimes you just have to use it and in that case you want plastic that is free of Bisphenol-a (BPA), phthalates and any other potentially yucky things that can leech into your child’s food. A Safe Mama reader emailed to ask about a product she found on One Step Ahead called Baby Cubes. Baby Cubes properly store and freeze fresh home made Baby purees in handy containers. They come in sets of 8 and sit neatly on a organizing storage try that are stackable, to save room in the freezer. Our lovely reader wanted to know if Baby Cubes were safe and non-toxic. I did a little searching and found the company website. According to the company, Petite Creations, Baby Cubes are free of phthalates and Bisphenol-a and is made of safe polypropylene plastic:
The Baby Cubes are made of a non toxic Polypropylene Virgin raw material We do not even accept Recycled Polypropylene in the fabrication of The Baby Cubes It must be of a Virgin Raw Polypropylene so that we can be certain of the highest quality.
Petite Creations say they are microwave and dishwasher safe. I think it’s probably smart to avoid microwaving anything in any type of plastic to eliminate any possible problems, but for storing and freezing these look like a nice solution. Baby Cubes are available at One Step Ahead for $6.95 if you buy two.
