I was tipped off by a reader (thanks Annilee!) about new developments from Handi-Craft, the makers of Dr. Brown’s bottles. I confirmed with the company too and then later noticed it posted on their website.

Before catching wind of this BPA business, I used Dr. Browns polycarbonate bottles for months. I wish I would have known and had the option to choose a Polypropylene alternative then. Mom’s will be able to choose polypropylene bottles (a BPA free plastic) over the polycarbonate bottles this spring. Yay! Below is an excerpt from an email sent to us by a Handi Craft rep:

Dr. Brown’s Natural Flow is extending its baby bottle product offerings to include bottles made of three different materials – glass, polycarbonate plastic, and polypropylene plastic. All three bottle types will maintain the unique internal vent system that makes Dr. Brown’s bottles popular with parents and babies. Polycarbonate bottles are available now, glass bottles are available in January, and polypropylene will be available in the spring of 2008. …

Glass and polypropylene plastic bottles will join our polycarbonate bottles, and all three types will be sold at retail.
