One of our favorite Mommy Hacks is how to make a glass baby bottle using mason jars. This is a cost effective, way to feed your baby. Plus there is ZERO plastic in this homemade baby bottle. Just a glass mason jar, silicone nipple and a metal jar ring.
A good quality glass baby bottle can range in price from $8-16 depending on brand. Instead you can use mason jars that you already own, or purchase regular neck mason jars for as little as .71 cents for 4oz jars! Plus the cost of the nipples which come in at about $3.50 per nipple. Here we picture an 8oz and 12oz mason jar baby bottle.
*Added Bonus* – Most mason jars are freezer safe, pumping moms can easily store their breast milk in the mason jars and warm as needed. AND you can use the sweet little 4oz mason jars to for homemade baby food.

- Glass Mason Jars Regular Neck in 12oz, 8oz or 4oz sizes (freezable)
- The screw on rings provided with the Regular Neck Mason Jar, or can be purchases separately here.
- Comotomo Baby Bottle Nipples (available in 6 different flow rates)
Place the Comotomo baby bottle nipple inside of the ring provided with the mason jars. It is going to be a snug leak proof fit. Next take your regular neck mason jar and screw the ring with nipple attached onto the mason jar. It may help to wet the bottom of the ring where the nipple will touch the jar. The Comotomo nipples are vented so you should not experience issues such as nipple collapse, but if you do, you may have the ring to firmly tightened to the mason jar.
Here is a link to purchasing the Comotomo silicone bottle nipples. FYI, the Comotomo silicone baby bottles are some of the best out there, if you prefer a light weight option and non-glass.
