What's the best way to care for my glass sippy cup?
Hand-washing is best - although if you do want to use a dishwasher, please place on top-rack only. Over time and persistent machine washing, the heat of the dishwasher may warp the outer silicone sleeve.
Are BPAs in plastic toxic?
"Some research has shown that BPA can seep into food or beverages from containers that are made with BPA. Exposure to BPA is a concern because of possible health effects of BPA on the brain and prostate gland of fetuses, infants and children. It can also affect children's behavior. Additional research suggests a possible link between BPA and increased blood pressure."
But recent studies have shown that even BPA-free plastics aren't safe:
"It's worth noting that many BPA-free products have merely replaced BPA with bisphenol-S (BPS) or bisphenol-F (BPF).However, even small concentrations of BPS and BPF may disrupt the function of your cells in a way similar to BPA. Thus, BPA-free bottles may not be an adequate solution "
Are all bottles & sippy cups BPA-free?
"In 2012, the FDA banned the use of bisphenol A in the manufacture of baby bottles and sippy cups. There were concerns that the chemical in polycarbonate plastic could lead to certain cancers, changes in the brain and reproductive system, and early puberty. All baby bottles and sippy cups sold in the USA are now BPA-free."
