I always premade bottles and lined them up in the fridge. 

I still do that with sippy cups now. :)

I used to prepare the day's bottles the night before (mostly because I had twins and time was short!).

I like the ideas of glass bottles. No BPAs and you can use the dishwasher.

I use these bottles and absolutely love them.  I have a fear of using plastics for y little one.

Quoting Blue-PinkDream:

i was very excited when i received the born free bottles. my lis bottle fed and he had no problem adjusting to them.i loved the glass bottle .it is cuter than the plastic one and it is also easier to read than the other one. i also loved this bottles because Alexander could control the flow better ,he finished his bottle faster than with the ones we normally used,without choking on them iwould definitely recommend BORN FREE BOTTLES to other moms.

Quoting Kreeman:

I had heard of Born Free bottles before this survey but I had never tried them before or known anyone personally who had. I am more of a mainstream type parent, so my first impression of the bottles were that they seemed kind of "crunchy" and green which is something I would not personally go out of my way to look for. Nevertheless, it can't hurt, and the bottles were aesthetically pleasing, especially the glass one. I also liked that the nipple and system are meant to mimic breastfeeding.

I liked the glass bottle better than the plastic one, and I think baby did, too. The weight of it felt nice in my hand but I did worry that if it were to slip it could injure the baby. The glass just felt unique and old school to me and I enjoyed that about it. 

My baby is not very picky at all. He will usually accept any paci, formula, or bottle I offer to him and never has issues switching back and forth between these things or from the breast to bottle. Likewise, he accepted the new bottle immediately without any transition period. I did notice a slight reduction in his fussiness through the day, however I am not ready to believe it was solely due to using Born Free bottles. My child simply goes through phases a lot. 

I mostly breastfeed, but baby typically gets 4-5 ounces of formula a day. Sometimes but not often, he'll stay with his nana and have a lot more formula then. I think that this bottle's flow was more similar to my breast than to any other bottle we have tried. However, my flow is very fast and so this bottle is faster than others I've tried. 

I would recommend these bottles to other moms if they are not super concerned about slow-flow and want a cleaner way to feed their baby.

I always did that too. It's important to stay ahead on busy mornings.  I worked outside the home so I had to make sure I was super organized.
