    Nice that you had this inspiration. I did not know that the USA has not banned BPA – same as lawn pesticides. As a Canadian I see the advancements we have made and the freedoms we have. The pharmaceutical industry has way more grip on the choices in the States. I appreciate your contribution to planet – human health. What I would like to see added is that babe at breast is always the first choice and doing what we can to promote this is essential for the optimal health of the generations to come. There are international certifications that birthing centres can get – Baby Friendly hospital- to optimise the knowledge regarding Breastmilk and breastfeeding. Continue the good work?

      Breastfeeding is always recommended as the first and healthiest choice for babies and mothers. However, sometimes bottles become a necessity if a mother must go back to work or if there are latching problems or physical disabilities a baby has (such as cleft lip, Down Syndrome, cerebral palsy) that does not make breastfeeding a possibility.
