Lifefactory Glass Baby Bottle

weeThink

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.

REGRET: 12 WANT: 96
  • Favorite bottles! Mar 07, 2017

  • I was hesitant to buy glass, but wanted a non-toxic bottle. These are so sturdy! I'm shocked that none have chipped or broken. I also like how the bottle can go in the dishwasher for easy cleaning. Jan 31, 2017

    Love the glass aspect and very easy to clean and survives a drop off the counter or two Jan 02, 2017

  • Cute, environmentally friendly. Dec 30, 2016

  • I was worried that they'd break but I've used these for two years and haven't had a broken bottle yet. Love lifefactory and highly recommend Dec 27, 2016

  • Weeeee loooove this Dec 14, 2016

  • I love that it's glass, but has the protection of the silicone cover. We found that we still preferred our other glass bottles that had a flow vent and were cheaper (Born Free). Dec 06, 2016

  • No matter what I do, these seem to leak. Dec 01, 2016

    • Ruha S.

    Love these bottles so much! Oct 06, 2016

  • Love these bottles! I think my favorite part was being able to take it from a bottle to a sippy cup. Oct 05, 2016

  • We use this with the straw top and my kid loves it. When on a plane, make sure you twist the top a bit before opening the straw. The straw top version might leak if left horizontal. Oct 05, 2016

  • I've used the 4-oz size since baby was tiny, and 9-oz as he got older. Quality is great, with no breakage issues. They're heavy, which is the only drawback as baby wants to start holding his bottle. Oct 05, 2016

  • I used these with my daughter and loved them! It was about the time when many of the bottles and sippy cups were being recalled due to bpa, these helped me feel safer for her Sep 13, 2016

  • Unfortunately my daughters have never taken a bottle, and I had these lovely (albiet slightly costly) bottles... thankfully, you can switch out the top into a water bottle head! Use for them after all Sep 09, 2016

  • Love that these can be used for bottles then for sippy cups and sport cups. My almost 4 year old still uses one with the sport spout. Way longer use than a typical baby bottle. Makes up for the $$. Sep 02, 2016

    Great bottle. Easy to use and clean. Very excited that I can just buy new tops and turn into a sippy cup, especially since they bottles are on the expensive end. Aug 30, 2016

  • I had issues with this one leaking a lot and I felt the nipples were weird. The small mouth was hard to fill and these were way more expensive than the wide-mouth Avent ones, Jun 21, 2016

    We breastfeed but if I need to occasionally give my baby pumped breast milk this is the only bottle I feel comfortable giving to my baby. Jun 06, 2016

    Cute design, love the cleanliness of the glass, but my kids don't take bottles in general very well. May 16, 2016

  • awesome glass baby bottle May 09, 2016

  • Love that these are a more eco-friendly option. We do not own any plastic bottles. High price tag and still have a bit of plastic, but they work fine on the occasions that we do use a bottle. May 03, 2016

    i like that this bottle is made of glass but protected so if it gets dropped it will not break. Apr 25, 2016

  • Despite being heavier than other baby bottles this one is the sturdiest and my all time favorite. Apr 19, 2016

  • Neck too small, causes messes & baby gets too much air. Very disappointed, Joovy has a much better glass bottle! Apr 16, 2016

  • BPA free. Two sizes. Beautiful colors. Strong and will not break after being dropped. Good for newborn through sippy cup training (with attachments). Mar 16, 2016

  • You only need a few. Clean easy. Won't break. Adjustable top from bottle to sippy cup. Fun colors. Bpa free. Stylish. Mar 16, 2016

  • Glass protected by silicone sleeve. looks nice. super functional! grows with child. baby, sippy, water bottle llid options. Mar 11, 2016

  • We didn't want to use plastic bottles and found these in our search for a good glass bottle. Our daughter has dropped them and they have not broken or cracked. These are excellent quality! Mar 06, 2016

  • Gave this as a gift to another expecting mom who hated the idea of using plastic for her baby. We had it engraved for a personalized touch Feb 02, 2016

  • Love the bottle but baby doesn't take to nipple well Feb 01, 2016

  • We use this as a sippy for my toddler. Is easy to clean and has held up well. Dec 28, 2015

Everyone
  • 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!
