Glass baby bottles


Hi,

I was wondering if anyone had some recommendations for glass baby bottles. I have only come a cross a few. I wanted Medela ones but I just found out that they are not made anymore. I have checked our Dr. Brown bottles and Born Free bottles but they don't seem to have very good reviews. I thought I would post this here instead of under the feeding boards because this board has more views.

Thanks!

When Lillian was very young we used NUK and they do glass bottles. I know alot of mums have used NUK and found them very successful.

Can I ask what the pros are to glass bottles? I've always wondered?

My for me personally I hated using plastic bottles with my daughter because regardless of make the plastic wore down very easily and they leaked all over the place. My daughter was a preemie and I bottled fed her breast milk and for a while we had to sterilize them instead of just washing them in a dishwasher or by hand. I will most likely have a preemie again and I would rather put my money towards one good brand of glass then a bunch of different plastic ones.

Also, some ppl say that any type of plastic releases a chemical when boiled (steriliser or for formula) I dont know how true this is for bottles nowadays, im just using standard plastic dr.browns but if i thought there was a big risk, i'll change

I use the born free ones and I love them, I prefer glass over plastic, because I feel like they clean better, they don't disintegrate or go out of shape & its better for the environment to choose glass over plastics.

I use evenflo glass bottles. They are cheaper than others, rugged, keep milk warm longer, and are a lot easier to clean and disinfect (I think because they are not porous). I have never had a problem with leaking or breaking (and I clean and boil them between each use).

What I like most is that they fit the Medela breastpump so I can pump straight into the bottle!

The chemical is called BPA and most new bottles don't have it in them, but I actually try to limit her exposure to as much plastic as possible because of personal preference (who knows what they will discover is bad next though, lol!) so we use glass bottles (and most of her toys are cloth, rubber or wood too).
