BPA in bottles banned

Since alot of baby bottles are banned now in Canada, I am going to try the new Foogo thermos baby sippy cup (I ordered it online). Here is a commercial for it:
It looks like a great new product. Anyways, also Avent bottles, etc. all contain BPA in bottles which can be toxic to babies. Most stores are now accepting the bottles in exchange for a gift card for their store etc (London Drugs, Zellers, Walmart etc.). You do not need a receipt for them. This is great since nobody wants to expose their children to these toxins. Anyways, this sippy cup had great reviews and looked good. Anyways, talk to you later.

About me

Of course I have a wonderful family with three beautiful children, two boys ages 6 and 4 (Logan and Aaron) and a baby girl Erica who is 7 months old already (man how time flies). I can't believe it. I am a medical transcriptionist and work full time (but currently am on maternity leave) and my husband is just finished university and he has a computer science degree and is starting a new job soon. We shall see where this all takes us, but hopefully it is all good.
My absolute favorite website is frugalshopper.ca I have been a member for a few years now and started entering contests and getting freebies and I can't say it hasn't done me well. I have won three trips and various other smaller prizes and can't wait for the mail to arrive on a daily basis as you never know what might be in there (other than bills. . . . but who looks forward to those anyways). I have gotten a bunch of my family and friends involved now in frugal shopper and now they have tried entering contests etc. or getting freebies like me. It is a fun and free addiction and one I will have to start a support group for to stop (just kidding). Anyways, I hope you all enjoy this thread of mine. Talk to you soon.

First time blogger

So I have finally started up a blog (with the recommendations of my sister Jenn). I have never tried this before, so we shall see how it goes.
