  • You're supposed to use glass bottles with newborns? Wish someone would have told me that with my daughter...

  • I didn't use glass bottles. I used the Playtex drop-ins.
    You can switch to plastic anytime - just be sure it's OK with baby's mom. In general, I'd say to switch to plastic or sippy cups before the baby is allowed to hold the bottle on her own so there is no risk of them dropping and breaking.

  • Well, glass bottles are optional. They are suppose to produce less air and now with the BPA scare everyone's using glass bottles or BPA free plastic bottles. My daughter is 4 months old and we are still using the glass bottles. I'm guessing when she starts using a sippy cup we will change her bottles. Unless we can find a glass sippy cup?lol Oh, I don't know.

  • They have padded/knitted sleeves you can buy to put the bottles into so if dropped they dont break if you plan on sticking with the glass.. Up to you..

  • I never used the glass bottles, we started off with Playtex drop ins. ALOT EASIER!

  • I also used drop-ins. Easier cleanup, in my opinion. However, I was told that you can use glass bottles until the child shows an interest in holding their own bottle. I think that the only concern then is a baby breaking a glass bottle and then there would be glass every where. Congrats on the grandbaby.
