3 Benefits of Glass Baby Bottles
Choosing bottles for your baby can feel stressful. With so many options available, it’s easy to become quickly overwhelmed by all the materials, shapes and styles! However, if you’re looking for a safe and eco-friendly alternative to plastic, glass baby bottles are an excellent option. Here are three interesting benefits of going with glass!
Easy to Clean
While many modern plastics are dishwasher safe, they're often relegated to the top rack of the dishwasher only, which requires careful (and annoying!) placement strategy while loading the machine. Glass bottles, on the other hand, can withstand boiling temperatures which means they can go anywhere in your dishwasher—including the bottom rack! If you need to wash your baby’s bottles by hand, glass is easy to clean and can drip dry on top of a special rack that’s solely devoted to your babies feeding accessories.
Glass can withstand heavy use without suffering any physical changes. Modern glass baby bottles often come with silicone sleeves, which make them even more durable thanks to the addition of a shock-absorbing outer layer. The silicone also makes the bottle easy for both parents and babies to grip, resulting in less drips and spills. Plus, you’ll never have to worry about crushing your baby’s bottle when you toss it into your diaper bag!
Glass baby bottles are easy to recycle or upcycle, and you can keep them on hand for years as your family grows without needing to switch them out as frequently as you would with plastic. Glass is an organic product because it's easier to manufacture and doesn't create as much waste as plastics. However, BPA-free plastics are still a convenient option for sippy cups and tableware as baby begins to self-feed.
