Are you considering using plastic-free baby bottles? Many parents are switching to safe non-plastic alternatives. Here we will discuss the best not plastic baby bottles options.
First lets go over the basics.
Let's take a closer look at the pros and cons of each option.
Pros: Glass bottles wont leak toxins into your babies food, and tempered glass can be warmed easily.
Cons: Glass is heavy, and if you find a glass baby bottle that is not heavy it may be because it is not tempered glass and could break easily.
Pros: This is a lightweight alternative to plastic baby bottles. Look for stainless steel bottles made from 18/8 stainless steel. Preferably double walled (insulated) to keep liquids cold or warm.
Cons: Sometimes the taste of steel is apparent and while you can use stainless steel bottles for breast milk and formula sometimes there is a strange aftertaste if the bottles are not thoroughly scrubbed before using them for other liquids like water.
Pros: Super lightweight yet durable. Have a good feel that babies and toddlers tend to enjoy. Silicone is a non-toxic polymer made of silica (sand).
Cons: It used to be silicone bottles where hard to find. Now there seems to be plenty of options. Consider only going with reputable companies the 3rd party test their bottles for quality and safety standards.
