What Do You Think About Negative Press over Plastic Baby Bottles and Sippy Cups?

I just wanted to get some other moms opinions on the articles I have read about plastic bottles and sippys. Studies have shown that bottles and sippys made out of polycarbonate can leach out a harmful chemical called bisphenol-A into the milk. I am not sure if this is only if the bottle or cup is heated or if it does it all the time. They say sterilizing them can also break the plastic down. I have always used Dr. Browns for my baby and she will only drink her formula heated. I don't put it in the microwave I just sit in a cup of hot...

Help with Weaning (Milk Allergy)

I have a 13 month old daughter who has a milk allergy. She is exclusively breastfed, and never took the bottle (no matter how many times we tried). She does take water out of a cup with a straw.

My Baby Just Started Solids and She's So Constipated!

My daughter is 4 months and 3 weeks. I just started giving her a little bit of rice cereal and baby food. She became so constipated! The pediatrician said to switch to oatmeal and pears, peaches and peas, but that didn't work either! The only way she poops is with a suppository! Also, she won't drink pear juice because she doesn't drink from a bottle! Any suggestions?

Sippy Cup Help!

My darling, stubborn 13 month old son ONLY uses the Nuby sippy cups (which was a great transition cup from bottle to sippy for my girls, apparently not for my son). He has 12 teeth, a real mouthful, and chews the tips of the Nuby nipples so they leak. NOT COOL. I've bought LITERALLY every. single. sippy. under the sun, and he can't drink from them. It's not that he doesn't try, he's just not getting it from a hard sippy. I don't know if this could be because he was tongue tied at birth (he got snipped), or if I just need to be persistant ...
