Not so long ago, glass baby bottles were the choice for mothers everywhere. When plastic came along, it was thought that it would be cheaper and simpler to make bottles, and many other products, out of plastic instead.

The recent concern about the environment and the desire of many people to lead greener, healthier lives, has brought glass back into the market. We'll explain why glass baby bottles are better than plastic and give you some information on where you can purchase them.

Why Choose Glass?

Plastic is difficult to recycle and it doesn't break down in landfills. - Many plastics contain a substance called Bisphenol A, or BPA, and it's now known that that this chemical is toxic and can cause serious health problems, including cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and breast cancer. It's also been proven to affect the reproductive system in animals.

Won't They Break?

I was a little concerned at first that glass would break and then pose a serious health and choking hazard for babies.

But, after testing lots of glass baby bottles, I've found that they don't break very easily - a bottle would probably have to be thrown across the room onto concrete or something to break.

On top of that, many companies are offering their bottles with protective rubber sleeves that help to prevent possible breakage.

Overall, they are extremely safe and concern over the possibility of a glass bottle breaking shouldn't stop you from using them.

Who Makes Them?

There are actually a number of companies that make glass bottles now. We'll list just a few of our favorites to help get you started.

Evenflo Cozy Glass Bottle with Sleeve, 3-Pack, Colors Vary: These are quite possibly our favorite glass bottle. They are extremely reasonably priced at only $8.99 for three bottles in either the 4 or 8 oz. size, and they even come with colorful protective sleeves. The sleeve and the bottle are both recyclable. These are great eco friendly baby bottles.

Momo Baby 5oz 3-Pack Glass Bottles and Thermal Hugger

These are slightly more expensive than the EvenFlo bottles, costing $12.99 for three 5 oz. bottles. What we like about these is the shape, which is like an hourglass, that makes the bottle easier for baby to hold.

We also like that it comes with a free thermal sleeve that helps to keep the contents warm or cold. However, the one downer is that it only comes with ONE free sleeve per three pack of bottles.

If you are prone to losing things, that sleeve can disappear in a hurry! Overall, they are great bottles and worth the cost. Plus they've got really cute designs on them and the company tests every batch of paint to make sure that there is no lead.

As you can see there are a lot of Green Baby Products out there and Glass Baby Bottle are certainly an important part of the movement toward sustainability.
