Baby Teethers, are they Really BPA-free?

Dr. Adam

From central Texas, I spent most of my young professional career advancing my knowledge and becoming a board certified pediatric dentist. Unfortunately, I have experienced an occupation ending disability and had to sell my practice. After selling my practice, I have since committed my efforts to spreading expert opinion to parents regarding the oral well-being of their children. Thanks for stopping by and please don't hesitate to contact me should you have any questions.

    I am glad that someone is warning parents about the potential damage these teethers could be doing to their children. Being able to self-sooth is important in my mind, so my children didn’t have any dummy or soother but merely used their thumbs. At least we know that there is nothing harmful in their own hands. However, it is shocking that teethers that might be toxic to children are for sale without any warning to parents. How can this be allowed?

      Thank you for your comment and question Gillian. From what I am seeing, there is inadequate regulation of the chemicals that are in question. The research was pushing for more regulation and better advertising practices. As stated in my post, these companies are getting away with false advertising.

      Another reason that they are getting away with it is that the exposure the child is experiencing from the product is minimal enough to stay below the level needed to cause side effects. I am glad that you are helping me keep this conversation going.

      Thanks,
      Dr. Adam

    Great post! I shared simply to help get the word out about BPA Free and promote the frozen carrot or rag.
