BPA Free Bottle Exchange at Babies/Toys R Us

by Marcy on August 11, 2008 · 0 comments

If you read too much on the Internet like me, you have probably heard about BPA by now. And while I am obviously not an expert on the subject, I have decided to err on the side of caution when it comes to the plastic products that I am currently using for my daughter. I am not trying to sway you one way or the other when it comes to your opinion about this, but I did want to share some info with you if you are concerned about BPA and own baby bottles that were made with it.

Several months ago, I read on a couple of blogs that Babies and Toys R Us would gladly exchange any used bottles made with BPA for BPA free ones. However, when I contacted my local store, I was told that it wasn’t so. However, my friend and I were both able to exchange our Dr. Brown’s bottles this week for BPA free ones.

A few notes about our experiences:

* Babies R Us took all of my friend’s bottles (if they carried them), determined how much they were worth, and gave her a temporary “credit” to go and pick out BPA free bottles. She had to use the entire amount on bottles, and had to complete the transaction at that time.

* I went to Toys R Us and was able to exchange 9 large bottles for 3, 3-packs of BPA Free Bottles. Because they don’t carry the other sizes of Dr. Brown’s bottles I had to exchange, they asked me to take the remainder of them to Babies R Us.

* I am not sure if any other brand besides Dr. Browns is eligible for exchange, or if all Babies/Toys R Us stores around the country are willingly allowing exchanges.

* Both my friend and I only took in bottles that we had all of the pieces/parts to.

* For those of you who know me…no I am not pregnant! I just wanted to have BPA free bottles for when the time comes.
