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.

  • We knew we wanted glass bottles for our twins, and this came highly recommended. It did not disappoint. My husband and I even got our own water bottles to match with I think they will love when older. Nov 04, 2017

  • 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. Oct 20, 2017

  • I love that when I’m heating up her bottle no toxins are getting into her milk. I’ve dropped it quite a few times and the silicon sleeve has protected it! And when she’s older I can get the sippy cap Oct 20, 2017

    Great looking, durable (we dropped plenty of times and never broke one) and don't get cloudy like plastic. Love that you can get so many different tops. Screw flat top, sippy cup top, or nipple. Oct 19, 2017

  • This is our go-to bottle. I like the sturdy, eco friendly glass. Easy to wash by hand or in dishwasher. Looks great. Oct 19, 2017

    The slow flow is still too fast for newborns. Oct 18, 2017

  • Great glass bottle! Hooks up directly to medela pump. Comes with a leak proof top. Only downside is the cover makes them difficult to slide into diaper bag pockets. Oct 18, 2017

  • We love these bottles! They travel well and don't leak. I also love that they are glass and I don't have to worry about plastic breaking down over time. Oct 08, 2017

    Love the glass bottles, sturdy and easy to use. I will only purchase sippy cups & bottles now that are interchangeable due to waste concerns! Stylish to boot. Jul 18, 2017

  • I used these bottle soft my daughter from when she was born until she stopped drinking from a bottle. She loved them and was able to hold them easily later on. we still use them for water,you buy lids Jul 18, 2017

  • We love these! We just got the sippy cup tops because its time to say bye to nipples. My son recognizes the bottles and it made for a smooth tranistion! Jul 11, 2017

    • Sara N.

    The nipple is so narrow that baby's lips don't open wide the way they should, milk streams out of the nipple way too fast, and the lids don't snap on easily, they are always coming loose. Terrible!! Jul 07, 2017

  • I stored all my breastmilk in these bottles (bought matching lids) I loved that they are glass and could be frozen and unfrozen without breaking. Great bottles for storage. Jun 15, 2017

  • I love my lifefactory bottles. I love they are glass. I love they are easy for my baby to hold. You can use as bottle and later transition to sippy cup. Worth the extra money. Apr 15, 2017

  • My baby only kind of took this bottle. She doesn't love it but will taste. I love how nice they look and that they aren't plastic though. High quality if your baby likes it. Apr 12, 2017

  • 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!
