Does anyone use glass bottles?

My husband surprised me last night while we were at Babies R US by telling me that he doesn't trust plastic bottles for babies and would much prefer that we use glass bottles instead.

Personally, I'm not against the idea at all. But, I was wondering if anyone else uses glass bottles and what their thoughts/experiences/opinions are.

I am going to do my best to breast feed the baby (she's due in December), but there are no guarantees in life and eventually I'll have to give her a bottle, whether its so my husband can help with feedings or daycare.

We breastfed as well till DD 1st birtday..but when pumping we used dr browns glass bottles. I love them. no bad experiences at all. we had a few other glass bottles but Dr Browns were by far our fave. HTH.

We use glass bottles and I have had no problems. The only thing is that you need to make sure the ring isnt on too tight and that air can get in since they wont collapse like some plastic bottles.

I love them. My main reason for using them was that they will last longer than plastic bottles. We used plastic for a while (the ones that came with out pump) and they had started to go cloudy. So, when we needed to go to 8 oz bottles I bought glass.

Good luck and congrats on a Christmas baby! My DD was born Dec 18 last year

I liked our little glass bottles..If they weren't so heavy, we'd be using the bigger ones. The only thing to watch, our little bottles had a pretty fast flow nipple, so maybe have some slower flow nipples on hand, just in case.

we used glass bottles but had two problems. 1, they were a pain to clean, 2 my baby would only use the natural latch nipples. Which worked for me just fine because they use the disposable liners. In my house if it can't get clean in the dishwasher it's gone!

I got mine pretty cheap on amazon.com. I actually had one fall out of the diaper bag, bounce on the asphalt and just roll away They do not shatter very easily, and they're super easy to clean. Loved 'em!

We used Born Free glass that we got on here FSOT. Love them, no fiddley little straws to clean out like Dr.Browns and DS still had no gas or issues, we used them for daddy to feed EBM. They became a liability when DS became old enough to toss them (never broked one though) they regularly dent my maple hardwood floor when he tosses them. So we bough some of their BPA free plastic ones as well, those were great for plane trips and travelling where glass just added too much weight.
