Glass bottles or plastic bottles?

I went to Babies r Us the other day and I noticed that Dr Brown's bottles come in glass now and so do these others called Born Free. I kinda liked them. Have any of you used either of these or will you be trying either of them? I always used Avent but I liked the idea of glass for this time around.

I LOVE MY BOYS!!

personally, I am going to stick with plastic bottles again. The idea of a glass bottle scares me.

I will be breastfeeding but I will use the Breast Flow BPA free bottle for when I go to school and stuff.

I was planning to use glass until First Years went BPA free and since I LOVE those bottles SO  much and they worked GREAT with my first breastfed baby I plan to use them again.

I agree with the PP, I stick to plastic...  Glass usually breaks easily and its a safety hazard...  Or if you're like me and use a dish washer they might break (like most of my glasses had already) then you will run out of bottles without even noticing...

I wanted to but I couldn't find them  any where.

 

They aren't made so they will break when dropped and  such, that stuff is considered.

I do however  use Dr. Brown, and  love them. I recently found  the glass ones too but my son is already off the bottle...

I did want to add that my best friend was terrified of glass bottles but decided to try them anyway since she realized that she wanted her baby to always be held while feeding since that's what she felt he could be comfortable with and what he was used to from BF.

She made it clear to the care givers that they were to hold him. They did and she's never had an issue.

So if you want to use glass bottles I would go for it as long as your child is always going to be supervised and held which is the safest thing anyway.
