With a new baby on the way, you must be preparing for his/her arrival. You are setting up a nursery, buying supplies, deciding which the best items are for your new baby. These are things you enjoy doing while waiting for the big day. Nothing but the best will do, of course. Then the dilemma comes, do you need to buy bottles? If so, what type of bottles – glass or plastic? Glass was a popular option thirty years ago, but then came plastic bottles. Soon enough we realized that plastic may not be so good for your baby, so now it’s back to glass bottles again. This Born Free Glass Bottle review attempts to shows you that it is the perfect option out of all the items available to you in the market.

Read our Born Free Glass Bottle review further to know why glass gives you an advantage over plastic:

Advantages of using Born Free Glass Bottles:

Inert Glass – your Born Free Glass Bottles are inert, that is, they don’t give off or absorb any nutrients, chemicals or other things from the milk. It’s so much safer for your baby.

Stronger bottle – In our Born Free Glass Bottle review, we found that the latest technology has been used to toughen the glass, and if it does break it shatters into smooth pieces, unlike the old bottles which shattered into sharp bits. So it’s easie

Better for your baby – We found in the Born Free Glass Bottle review that the shape and structure of the bottle helps keep your baby colic free. So less trouble with gas.

Heating – they don’t break on heating. The Born Free Glass Bottle review also found that on heating, the bottles are safer than heating plastic bottles, which may leach harmful chemicals; after all, plastics
are a petroleum bi-product.

Environmentally Friendly – your glass bottles are recyclable, so when you are done with them, if you dispose of them properly they are not going to end up in a landfill.

To be fair we reviewed some plastic bottles too, so here are the disadvantages of using glass bottles:

 – Despite being reinforced, glass bottles do break. They need to be handled with care but can last for years.

– The glass bottle is a bit heavier than plastic. You will adjust to them soon enough.

– Due to the high quality of the glass, they are more expensive than plastic bottles. But glass will not show wear and tear.

– It’s best not to use these bottles for freezing as they can break during the defrost process.

Here are some more reasons why Born Free Glass Bottles are best for Baby:

Chemical Free

We found during our Born Free Glass Bottle review that the bottles are BPA free and PVC-free, so your baby isn’t taking in any toxins while on the bottle. You’re feeding your baby pure milk and nothing else when you use Born Free glass bottles.

Convenient Sizes

If you find the usual 4oz and 8 oz bottles inadequate for your baby, your best bet is to get Born Free Glass Bottles which come as 5 oz and 9 oz bottles. They are just right for the active and demanding baby.

No Nipple-Confusion

In our Born Free Glass Bottle review we see that these glass bottles are designed so they imitate how your breast milk flows. It is similar to breastfeeding for your baby. Your baby can control the flow as required. The nipples in the bottles are designed to resemble your breast as closely as possible, so there is less likely to be nipple-confusion. You can use the Born Free Glass Bottles along with breast feeding whenever necessary without your baby feeling the difference.

The Latest Technology

These glass bottles are well-designed to reduce colic and uncomfortable bloating from gas swallowed during feeding. They have a leak free, Active-Flow vent system. So it’s the preferred choice for your colicky baby. Our Born Free Bottle review noticed that the Active-Flow vent technology doesn’t allow a vacuum to build up and reduces air pressure, so your baby won’t take in as much air as in other bottles. The upshot is there is less discomfort due to gas resulting in less fuss.

The nipples come in different flow rates – there are five types of flow. You can get:

· Slow Flow for 0 to 3 months babies

· Medium Flow for the 3 to 6 months babies

· Fast Flow for you 6 months plus baby

· The Y Cut Fast Flow for the six months and older baby

· The Variable Flow Slow, Medium and Fast Flow for all age babies.

Easy to Carry Around

We also noted in the Born Free Glass Bottle review that the bottles don’t cause leakages when you carry them around in a diaper bag. They have a special sealing system in the cap and sealing ring that keep the milk from messing up your diaper bag or another carry bag when you are on the move.

Ready for Baby Fast

This range of glass bottles can be heated very quickly, so a crying baby won’t have to wait long for his/her food. Use the silicone sleeve to protect the bottle from breakage if you accidentally drop it. The Born Free Bottle review shows an added advantage in the silicone sleeve which gives you a firm grip on the bottle.

Easy Clean Up

The Born Free Glass Bottle review also shows that the bottles are easy to clean. No mild odor, no staining or scratching of the surface of the bottle during washing. The bottles can also be washed on the top rack of your dish washer, an added blessing for a busy mom. Sterilizing the bottles is easy as they can tolerate high temperatures well so boiling them in a sterilizer will not damage them.

Interchangeable Parts

The Born Free Glass Bottle review also distinguished that the collars, valves, and nipples, are easily interchangeable. When your baby is ready to transition away from the bottle, they also have interchangeable Sippy cup spouts and handles. If you want to use glass instead of plastic for your Sippy cup, just transition using the bottle. You can also buy 7 oz and 9 oz training cups which use the same spouts and handles.

Finally, you know it’s definitely a personal choice whether to use glass or plastic. There are many options out there and many pros and cons in the decision. The Born Free Glass Bottle review was done with honesty and care so that you can make the right choice. We hope our review helps you in your decision to make the best selection for your little prince or princess.
