Eco bottle brands - best one? Glass bottles any good?

I use plastic bottles at the moment. But trying to move towards a more eco friendly way!

My baby has dropped and lost two bottles and we're down to only one. It's not that bad as he only gets one bottle a day when it and about for convenience etc (breastfed the rest of the time), but could do with another bottle.

Any glass bottle brands anyone can recommend? Or eco brands?

Ugh badly phrased! *Only gets one(ish) bottle a day when we're out and about - or I'm not home and DH feeds.

NUK do a glass one. They also make latex and silicone teats both of which are compostable in your long term garden compost.

Lifefactory glass ones have a silicone protector so they don't smash.

Klean Kanteen do a stainless steel one that you can covert into a sippy cup.

It's a dangerous site! 🤣

I used and liked the NUK when DD2 was very little. We all have the Klean Kanteen bottles. They are fantastic.

Glass seems unwise if the problem is the baby frequently dropping the bottle. From an ecological perspective, I'd imagine secondhand / pre-used would be more environmentally friendly than most other options.

Not for plastic. It degrades over time and leaches toxins into the food.

The silicone sleeves do work to prevent breaking.

Those sites,*stargirl*!!! I love them. Uhoh... I now have a couple of full shopping baskets!

Yes it's both the environmental factor and that plastic leaks toxins is why I want to avoid them. I think those silicone sleeves on the life factory might be the ones I try!

We moved from Dr Brown to mamm glass bottles. Very happy with them. We put them in the dishwasher (from 6 months old). Cute designs too.
