BPA & Phthalate Free Pacifiers

My next child will be avoiding the Avent Pacifiers that Solomon well as the BPA loaded Avent bottles. We bought the Born Free bottles because they were most comperable to the Avent style...but I think for a second child, we would use either the BPA free Avent or Medela. Has anyone used the Medela bottles? I am a primary breastfeeder, but I did a lot of pumping due to a REALLY high production rate (I know it only makes it worse, but I could pump 16oz at a time, and the relief was worth it) so bottles happened...and if I could avoid it, I might, but if bottles were to happen a second time, I wouldn't be worried about it. Here is a list of BPA binkies...because in our house, we cannot live without them!! :)

Our binky passes! I never used the Medela bottles to actually give her milk. I don't think they came with nipples and such, so I never thought about it. 16 oz?? Wow. Oh, and I pumped religiously in Italy. Of course for those awful first couple of days, she wasn't interested in nursing and seemed like she didn't even remember how, so I nursed her a lot at night (just went in and did it while she slept), and now she is pretty much back to her same schedule before I left. Amazing. I was a little surprised but happy, of course.
