It's 4 am and the sun is barely peeking over the horizon as you stumble out
of bed, exhausted from lack of sleep. Following the all too familiar sounds
of a screaming baby, you grab a conveniently placed bottle to do the
Do you really want to be worrying about the safety of the bottle?
Well have no fear! Our friends at Our Green House no all the deets on why GLASS baby bottles are the right ones for you.
"Forty years ago parents had it easy. They say that ignorance is bliss, that
was proven through the tedious task of boiling and sterilizing glass baby
bottles day after day with no visions of other options. Yes, the bottles
were a bit cumbersome and a hazard in the hands of a sleep-deprived parent, but overall, the system was working.
We were all happily naïve until a few creative people decided to market
lighter, more flexible plastic baby bottles. To amp up their ³stand-out
factor,² they added special features. There were bottles that had nifty
plastic bag inserts that slid up through the open bottom. There were breast
shaped bottles that were supposed to help the baby latch on, and there were ergonomic shapes that were designed to reduce colic. All of these novelties created a plastic bottle fad. Quickly replacing standard glass bottles, these new bottles became all the rage.
Everything was evolving nicely . . .until ³Oops² we realized the fancy
plastic bottles might actually cause our precious babies harm. BPA, a
potentially dangerous chemical, was thought to be leaching into the milk.
Switching back to glass bottles proved to be the logical solution.
Not only did we go back - we added sleek silicone sleeves in delectable
colors. These easy grip bottles not only protect from broken glass, but grow with baby! Glass baby bottles now transform to sippy cups and, later on, to water/juice bottles.
Okay, so we may have gone in a giant circle, but at least we figured it out!
Next time maybe it won¹t take 40 years.
