  • I had some glass bottles, but I was so exhausted as a new mom, that I dropped a few of them and had to deal with infant AND broken glass.

    So, I got rid of the glass and used the PCB free bottle.

  • That's what I use, I don't see how they could be bad for infants. I have even dropped one on my kitchen floor and it didn't break. I used plastic for my twins and it was the worst decision! They were horrible and got so nasty! I love the glass ones.

  • Glass bottles are way better than plastic, because they clean up so well and there's no contaminants that can leech into the drink. Just make sure you inspect them and if there's any chips or cracks in the glass, recycle the bottle straight away. I breastfed and barely used any baby bottles at all with any of my six kids, but when I had to, it would be glass if possible.

  • if you're worried about breaking them, they make rubber sleeves that go over them and that really works well to prevent breaking when you drop them. my sister used glass bottles and loved them. i think she only broke one (and it was a freak accident lmao)

  • I prefer glass to plastic because it seems that I can get it cleaner... The plastic ones always seem to feel grungy, no matter what I do...

  • They are actually safer than plastic bottles from a BPA standpoint but you just have to be careful about not dropping them.
