  • Bpa free plastic ones… glass would be so easy to break by the baby and us both !

  • I would love to use glass (for environmental reasons), however, I am so bad with dropping everything and know I would break glass bottles so I use plastic.

  • I like the idea of glass but to be honest we tried both and the plastic ones are more practical as not worried about you or hun dropping and not as heavy for Bub to learn to hold on their own.

  • Glass bottles are longer lasting and healthier than plastic bottles.

  • If you are only just starting your feeding journey I would personally suggest glass bottles. Not only do they save plastic, which you have to replace every couple of months, they are so much easier to use and wash in my opinion!

  • I’ve never tried glass but I figure it’s probably a lot better to clean and safer than plastic. Personal preference is mainly the choice.

  • I think glass bottles are good,durable and easy to clean.But when baby wants to hold the bottle by himself it is quite heavy and can happen accidents.

  • I preferred glass when they were very young and when they were old enough to hold the bottles themselves I’d use plastic. It’s really a personal choice but I never liked the thought of them dropping a glass bottle in case it shattered.

  • We used plastic but if I was to doit again I’d use glass if it was cor me feeding the baby. When they feed themselves I’d go plastic.

  • I always used glass bottles when I had to. So thankful that nothing I used ended up a problem like plastic does.

  • We’ve used plastic for all 3 kids. Im toi worried about broken glass!

  • Plastic all the way for us. We found it really easy to sterilise and had zero risk of shattering. I would be concerned about breaking glass bottles as I was such a sleepy exhausted new mum.

  • Glass all the way. So much cleaner, smell free and can last years unless broken. All you need to do is change the teats so it is a great investment

  • I’d pick plastic. I’d worry about glass shattering. I’m not the most delicate of people
