Review Lifefactory Glass Baby Bottle

weego The Lifefactory glass baby bottle is made of glsas, with a BPA free cap, nipple and a snazzy silicone 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.  ( I have since learned that over-tightening the collar can cause nipple collapse). 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.
