Knowing that the best way to your baby’s big smile is through the stomach, you have to make sure that she still enjoys the same milk even when you are out of the house. Since teleportation remains a futuristic idea, you have to get high-quality glass bottle for your babies.

As you get ready to go to work, you have to find a bottle that will try substitute the good work done by the boob. You may also have to introduce the bottle early if breastfeeding isn’t an option for you.

But, which is one this the best? Why can’t you buy any bottle on the market? Well, the best bottle is the one your baby loves – babies are selective, and they reject feeding bottles.

In short, the bottle should mimic or try to mimic the breast in the best way possible to keep. Glass baby bottles are chemical free, easy to clean, recyclable and long lasting.

Unfortunately, finding a bottle that offers all these features is a daunting task especially if you are a new parent. But, don’t fret. We’ve got you. Here is your guide to find out the best glass baby bottle.

What Features to Look for When Buying a Glass Baby Bottle

  • Handles
    A baby easily and naturally holds your hand when feeding. The grip may not be strong but, it is a grip. As they grow, the hands grow bigger and stronger. Within a few months, the grip is firmer, and they can hold a few things.

    As they gain independence, she will be able to feed herself. Since your child won’t be able to hold the round part, you have to get a bottle with a handle. The handle should be small to fit the hand. It should also be comfortable. Most bottles with handles are trainer bottles and ideal for the first months.
  • Size
    How much milk will the bottle hold? Can your baby hold the bottle comfortably with milk or formula? A smaller bottle is preferable since a baby drinks a few ounces several times in a day. Sizes range from 4 to 12 ounces.
  • Does the bottle fit the breast pump?
    There are many glass baby bottle made to fit specific breast pumps. So, whether you buy the bottles alone or with the breast pump, make sure they are compatible. The compatibility will save you time, energy and it enhances hygiene. A wide bottle doesn’t fit in the breast pump.
  • Shape
    There are regular and wide glass bottle designs. Your baby may like both or one. The wide bottles mimic the breast, and they help in avoiding nipple confusion. While trainer bottles come with handles, many other bottles don’t have handles. The shape should be ergonomic. It may also have an angled neck.
  • Anti-colic Features
    Look out for anti-colic features such as vents to prevent your baby from swallowing air. Colic and constant burping result from ingestion of air. Also, oxygen oxidizes the milk.
  • Nipple & Material
    The material and the shape of the nipple determine how fast your baby embraces the use of a feeding bottle. Nipples are either latex or silicone, but silicone is preferable because some are allergic to latex.

    Regarding the shapes, there are orthodontic, bell shaped and traditional shaped nipples. You will also have to check out the nipple size and the flow of liquids from the bottle. Fortunately, the bottles come in sizes with the bottle for newborns marked stage one. It has the lowest flow. There also are disposable nipples.
  • Glass Protection
    The glass is prone to shattering. To reduce the risk of broken glass, you should consider getting bottles with a silicone coating. The silicone will hold the glass together if the glass shatters. You can also get a bottle with a silicone sleeve.
