I boiled my baby's bottles and put a plastic teether in the water to sterilize. The teether melted ! I later rewashed and boiled the bottles but could there be any solvents or toxic material in the bottles from the melted teether.

Thank you

@elanamazur,
Did any of the water get into the bottles? If not, I'd say it's probably impossible for there to be a problem. Not to say there's necessarily an issue if water did get in.

@jespah,
I was sterilizing the bottles so the water did get it. I am not familiar with how the melted plastic ( teether) reacts in water

@elanamazur,
Hmm wish I could help more. Bumping this up, hoping for a Mom (or a chemist, or a chemist Mom Smile) to see it.

@elanamazur,
What are the bottles made from? Plastic or glass?

I *think* that if they're made from glass they should be fine.

I'm just not sure, though.

@alipooh10,
Not to sound cavalier, but with all the other stuff babies manage to put in their mouths, is this really an issue?
