Whether you are breastfeeding or formula feeding, there’s a good chance you’ll need a bottle at some point. Even though my first baby was a champion breast feeder, I had to pump and leave bottles for his nanny, when I went back to school. Unfortunately deciding on which bottles to use is not easy with so many in the market.
Since I wanted only the best for my bundle of joy, I knew that I wanted to use glass bottles. Not only are glass bottles better for the environment; it does not contain any harmful chemicals such as s BPA, phthalate, PVC, or polycarbonate. Glass preserves nutrients longer. My top choice for glass bottles is the Lifefactory.
Although they are not completely indestructible, my current stash of bottles has survived 2 babies and I use them myself. Each bottle comes with a silicon sleeve. Some might complain about the price but one great thing about the Lifefactory bottles is that you are able to interchange the caps so that you can use them for years to come.
Clean up is also much easier with these bottles since you only have 3 parts to wash. I had previously used Dr. Brown glass bottles, and found that it was just to many parts to clean. Also, I would find that the inserts in the Br. Brown bottles would become greasy from naturally occurring fat in breast milk and formula.
Let us know what bottles you like to use for you little ones.
