Lee County, GA (WALB) -  Are the bottles you use to feed your child safe? Several studies have shown that some may not be.

Many plastic baby bottles can contain bisphenol 'A,' which has been linked to reproductive and developmental defects. Lee County mom Brandi Curley says she uses a bottle liner drop-in system just to be safe.

 "I haven't been too worried because there is no real definite confirmed studies. There hasn't been a whole lot said about it and I figured if anything was real dangerous about them, they'd be pulling them off the shelves," says Curley.

Many food containers and water bottles contain BPA. If the plastic identification number "7" is on your bottles and plastics, they may leach BPA.
