5.0 out of 5 stars great for travel, do not contain BPA, July 17, 2008
This review is from: Similac Advance Infant Formula with Iron, Stage 1 Ready-to-Feed Bottles, 8 Ounce, (Pack of 24) (Packaging May Vary) (Health and Beauty)
First off, the bottles DO NOT contain BPA. The lids are coated in an epoxy that does, but there is another layer over that to help protect the BPA from getting to the formula. I actually called Similac's parent company to verify this.

Yes they are expensive, but I get coupons all the time from Similac and use those to buy these bottles. They are wonderful for camping, fishing, or any other time sanitation may be an issue. All you have to do is attach your own nipple and ring. Much less to wash.

Though they are really not made to do it, you can punch out the center from the ring and put in a standard nipple. It seems like it will leak, but it doesn't. Then you can just throw the whole thing away.

I don't really remember. You might try calling the company and ask them. It seems like I was on a list from one of the parenting magazines or something.

How were you able to punch out the center from the ring? Are there any issues with venting when doing this?

I would have to use something like a screwdriver or pen

Can you use coupons on Amazon or are they just for the brick-and-mortar stores?

Not sure that this is BPA- free? Read my review and if anyone has any additional info, would appreciate that.
