Glass Bottles

While glass bottles might not be the best once baby is old enough to hold the bottle by it's self I plan to use them at least till then.

I always used plasic but glass is easier to clean, last longer, and doesn't have the chemical risk like plastic...plus it also is supose to keep the milk warm longer than plastic.

Anyone else use or plan to use glass bottles? Did you like them?

(and of course I breastfeed but I like to pump so daddy can give baby a bottle from time to time)

I've seen glass bottles with rubber sleeves that protect them if they fall.

Nope, daddy helps in other ways around here. Pumping while he bottle feeds is way to much work and there's a zillion other ways he can help out :)

We used the BPA free plastic ones when I worked outside the home with the older kids, glass is probably a much better choice.

 these are awsome! I have seen a 2 yr old throw one across the room and it still didn't break, I was amazed.

I agree. I did it for DH twice when my first was born. Pumping and leaving the house while Daddy got to feed, then cleaning the pump, then cleaning the bottle, too much work without much benefit. Then DH decided he didn't like it afterall. He did most of the other stuff, like rocking, singing, bathing, burping, changing clothes, even playing video games with baby. He also would hold our girls to my breast at night (we bedshare) so that I could dose off easier. 
We offered BPA free plactic sippy cups when I went back to work after my second. She never got a literal bottle. Glass is a better option. I have a friend who uses glass with her son (formula though), and those have been thrown around quite a bit without breaking.

I don't see the need to switch to plastic when they're feeding themselves.

Even when my DS was drinking BM from a bottle, it's not like he ran around with it.  It's dinner time--not run around and throw your food time!  Glass bottles have always been our choice, even though I have at least a dozen plastic Medela ones floating around.  I just don't feel like the plastic get clean enough, even when they're in the dish washer...

We used glass until my kids were off the bottle.  My ds had a glass bottle until 11 months and my dd until 9 months.  Both were on a cup full time after.
