    Default Glass bottles

    Does anyone use glass bottles and can recommend a brand? A bonus would be if they can fit in my avent microwave sterilizer (I assume u wash & sterilize them the same as plastic ones?)

    I'm in Melbourne and haven't looked too hard, but haven't seen any in stores, so any suggestions where to look?

    Thanks!

    Nuk have them. They are great. Prob to tall for the steriliser though. Also glass are pretty expensive.

    I bought pigeon from baby bunting. Don't think the big size would fit the microwave steriliser but they fitted in the electric auto one. They were okay, but I found the teat flows annoying, couldn't get the right flow for my DD.

    Is there a reason why you want glass? I started on glass but swapped to plastic so DD could learn to feed herself. Glass is too heavy and breakable for self feeding.

    Thanks for your help.
    I brought one pidgeon and 2 cherub baby ones to start.

    I want glass to reduce possible plastic chemicals etc leeching into the milk as it warms. I'll be (hopefully) breastfeeding mainly, so will just need a couple for expressed feeds.

    I just realized too if I'm worried about using plastic, the microwave sterilizer won't be any good anyway, so size doesn't matter.

    I have a 5 month old and use expressed milk from time to time but never warmed it up. He drinks it at room temperature. No need to worry about chemicals from plastic if you don't put bottle in microwave maybe?

    Also, if you are expressing, you will need a bottle that fits your pumping gear. Actually the pump might come with one bottle, I don't remember

    Have you ever considered silicone? I have the Prince Lionheart silicone bottles... They're medical grade silicone, and have no open pores so can't harbour bacteria, and leaching of harmful chemicals isn't an issue.

    They're also a lot lighter than glass, and because they're a soft material, excess air literally gets squeezed out, supposedly reducing the risk of colic.

    I mostly bf, so only use them occasionally, but I think they're great... They take a little getting used to because they're so soft, and the texture is a lot different to glass or plastic.

    They also have adapters that will turn the bottles into sippy cups later on which I think is pretty cool.
