Life Factory glass bottles are a safe, sturdy alternative to plastic. Made from the highest quality, thermal shock resistant borosilicate glass, these beloved bottles can do it all. The colorful silicone sleeves provide a good gripping surface for little hands and protect against tumbles and drops. When your baby is over bottles, simply swap out the nipples for sippy cup tops. All components are BPA- and phthalate-free, and transition safely from freezer to boiling water.  

The Catch: Because they’re made of glass, they’re heavy for a baby or toddler to hold.

  • These bottles are amazing. I love that they dont have issues you would have with plastic bottles, as far as wearing down and residue. The only downside is the price tag, but worth it Feb 15, 2019

  • I had the small one. I was scared of the glass but it never broke with the gel cover protects it. My baby dropped it alot. Feb 10, 2019

    I like these bottles. The only problem is that they are a little heavy for a baby to hold. Jan 26, 2019

  • We had to learn BPA was bad over time - what else will we learn about plastic bottles in the future?Glass bottles are safe for baby and these go from freezer to heated so easily. Jan 22, 2019

  • I wanted to love these but they weren’t for my colicky baby. They are super durable and clean very well compared to Dr Browns. I’ve kept them to try them on her again once she’s older. Jan 10, 2019

    Loved the idea of a glass bottle, but it didn't work for us. It's not vented, so when my baby tried to suck on it, the nipple collapsed, causing a very frustrated baby! Oct 28, 2018

  • Bought 8 of these for bottle feeding. Now that my baby is a toddler I have the supply cup top and I put juice and milk in them. I love the quality and that I can use them for a cup too Sep 27, 2018

  • Son never took a bottle, but these can grow with kids and we use them all the time now with our toddler. They didn't survive a second story fall, but have survived lots of other falls. Sep 09, 2018

  • These bottles are great. Thick glass, silicone cover. Not too heavy. Convert to sippy cups. Aug 28, 2018

  • My son used these bottles from birth to 2 yrs and they lasted! Love them - oh and he threw them everywhere Aug 21, 2018

  • Neither one of my exclusively breastfed babies would accept this bottle Aug 14, 2018

    This was the first bottle I tried with my little girl and she took to it right away, though she now prefers the sippy cap. I love that these bottles seem to keep milk warmer longer. Jul 30, 2018

    Love how this comes with the silicone cover so it doesn't break! Didn't work for us. Jul 03, 2018

  • Expensive and breakable. Our son has had a pitchers arm since birth and I ended up not trusting him to use a glass bottle. Waste of money. Jun 29, 2018

    Love the glass bottles and felt some much better feeding my baby from glass than plastic. Easy to clean. Jun 28, 2018

  • My friend gave me this, and I’m ALL for glass and silicone bottles. I particularly like the narrow neck, which makes it easier for me to pump directly into it and stash in my diaper bag. Jun 21, 2018

  • Daughter wouldn't take them. And they're too heavy Jun 02, 2018

    • Lea R.

    I love these glass bottles! My son also loved these. I highly recommend these bottles because I prefer glass to heat milk up in and I love the covering over them it makes safe for baby. Jun 01, 2018

  • We love life factory glass bottle as a non plastic option and for the beautiful design, but we were disappointed to find trouble with leaking from the top whenever the nipple was moved by baby. :( May 03, 2018

  • Q: Do these bottles leak? We are currently using Dr. Browns and they are always leaking in my diaper bag of if they topple over somewhere.

    asked by Caroline D. - Aug 25, 2015

  • We haven't had any issues. Little Man walks all around with them, tipping them upside down. The lid has a nice snap to it as well.

    Alexandria D. - Aug 25, 2015

  • We never had a problem with leaking unless the nipple was old/started to tear. They are the best but will definitely be heavier in your bag than other brands.

    Britt P. - Aug 25, 2015

  • We've never had issues with leaking. The collars fit snugly. Liquid may come out of the Stage 3 nipples if turned upside down but the bottles come with small discs you can insert instead of the nipple if you are traveling somewhere with a full bottle and the bottle might flip around in transit.

    Elizabeth P. - Aug 26, 2015

  • I never had any issues with spillage, leakage or bottle breakage and I have been using them for quite some time now.

    Martha R. - Aug 26, 2015

  • Only with the sippy cup adapter and if not using the silicone piece that comes with that. My son has a hard time sucking when that silicone is inside of the sippy cup thingy so we have removed it. Because of that, we do experience leaks if the bottle is tilted or put upside down.

    Verena S. - Aug 26, 2015

  • Q: Does it really not break if dropped from table / high-chair height?

    asked by Colin B. - Mar 24, 2014

  • We drop them on a daily basis and haven't lost a single bottle yet. No issues on wood, tile--even concrete.

    Britt P. - Mar 24, 2014

  • We've only broken one, and that rolled out of the back of our Volvo and onto pavement. Have never had an issue indoors, after 2.5 years of use.

    Allyson D. - Mar 24, 2014

  • No breakage as of yet! They are really sturdy find the silicon sleeve is her protective. No worries!
