Everything old is new again… especially when it comes to Glass Baby Bottles. When my little ones were weaned but still taking a bottle I used glass and really liked how the worry of BPA was eliminated.
I am assured by my mother that I was super attached my my glass baby bottle as a littlie and it was VERY difficult to wean me off it (a little like my nightly glass of wine methinks….?)
1. Life Factory: $29.95 for 250 ml. Hip brand with a sturdy reputation and fun style. These glass bottles were my favourite with Matilda. (see her below). With a range of tops to suit different stages, even adults get to join in the fun. Buy here.
4. Cherub Baby: $14.95 for 150ml. An Australian company offering a cheaper option, Cherub Baby make bottles plus some other really clever feeding products. While the bottles come with a slightly thinner silicone sleeve than the Life Factory ones, they’re great if you’re on a budget. I didn’t use the teats that came with these ones, instead using the leftover Life Factory ones which lasted a little longer. You can also get the funky colour change sleeves to give you a rough guide of the milk temperature.
– Glass bottles are made of high tempered glass to make them tough and able to withstand extremely hot temperatures.
– Glass is heavier so if you’ve gotten to the stage where baby is holding their own bottle, plastic will be lighter and easier.
– Like plastic bottles, the teats come with different sized holes for flow and a lot are interchangeable.
So you can mix the bottle and teat you prefer.
– A Silicone or fabric sleeve will protect the bottle from little knocks and make it more grippy for little hands.
Morning: Sleeping Bag. Check. Bottle of Milk. Check.
