Agree totally.

Re: Anyone use glass bottles???

I stopped using them for daycare, because they are top heavy, and if you free your bottle holding hand to do something, the bottle immediately falls out and flings it'self to the tile floor.

BUT, I tried the Born free, and the Evenflo, and I like the evenflo much better. If you don't get the rubber covers, you can use a baby sock, and even if it breaks, the glass tends to stay inside the sock.

BTW, I have some of the old evenflo bottles from the 50s, and they still look exactly the same as the new ones, except for the ring and nipple.

We used evenflo in the beginning. But as he grew older he needed a larger nipple base as he nursed a bottle like the boob, big o fish lips. We switched to born free. We liked them.

Evenflo here. They were affordable and now I have the lifefactory sippy tops with the stoppers removed and those are our cups of water or juice for all my guys in the car. We love them.

We have the Life Factory glass bottles, and also a glass water bottle for me. We like them a lot. No complaints except that we tried some other brand of nipple and it leaked terribly. Had to use the Life Factory brand nipples only.

Re: Anyone use glass bottles???

I've never used a bottle, BUT I have used the Life Factory glass water bottles for myself and my kids use the glass baby bottles with the sippy attachments (or the lid attachment in the case of the older two now). They are fantastic. They've taken plenty of falls, even on concrete and they do not break. Totally love them. If I were using bottles, I would not hesitate to use theirs. Good luck on your search!

Evenflo: inexpensive, solid, and simple.
