The Soft Landing was kind enough to send me a Wee·Go bottle for my son to be a test subject. The bottle itself is a glass bottle, with a BPA free cap, nipple and a snazzy rubber sleeve that is also BPA free. The sleeve is to give Mama and baby a better grip and also to protect it from the inevitable drops. Also? Bonus! It comes in 6 snazzy colors.
I really love the look and feel of glass bottles. I bought some of the evenflo bottles, and also a few of the Born Free glass bottles. But there’s one small problem: no pressure release. My son has managed to collapse the nipple to every glass bottle that I’ve ever tried, and this one is no exception. I’m not sure if it’s just him, or if it’s just that there’s no way to release air in the glass bottles. I’ve switched out the nipples and it doesn’t seem to work. My next step is to try the experiment again with a Y cut nipple.
That said, these are still really great bottles and one thing I love about this one is that I can store water in it for his formula when we go out and not have to keep it in plastic (We usually leave glass at home, so that we don’t have to worry so much about it smashing in public). I’m still squicked about storing liquids in a plastic bottle. Even a BPA free one.
Thanks again to The Soft Landing. They’re totally awesome and have the biggest selection of BPA free products out there. Not to mention flat rate shipping on all orders over $50.
