Hi everyone! We're all alive here, and we weren't carried away by the flood! Things have just been very busy here lately! I'll post an update soon, but in the meantime, I just wanted to pass along a tidbit of information.
A friend called this morning to tell me that Zellers stores are giving refunds for any product which they've pulled off their shelves due to BPA (Bisphenol A) concerns. I called the store, and as far as I can tell, products do not have to be in their original packaging, nor do you need to have a receipt. They will give you a gift card with your refund on it. This is only until Friday though!
I'm going to bring back our Avent bottles and a few other things this afternoon, so I'll let you know how it goes!
For a comprehensive list of which products have BPA in them, check out the Z Recommends BPA Report.
I didn't have any trouble returning my Avent bottles, and I received a $95 gift card in return! I kept the nipples and sealing caps though, because they fit on the Klean Kanteen sippy cups (which use Avent sippy cup spouts). Also, I figure that Avent will probably make bottles without BPA that can use the same nipples, so that may save me some money when we have another baby.
