Environmentally conscious moms are always on the lookout for baby products that not only protect the well-being of their child but also pose the least threat to our environment. Having said that, the healthiest, most earth-friendly options are not always the most practical. With the potential of plastic bottles to leach chemicals and deteriorate over time, glass bottles are clearly the healthier, more earth-friendly choice. Lifefactory’s silicone covered baby bottles eliminate the worry of breakage and the protective sleeve gives it a good grip. Lifefactory has made the traditional glass baby bottle a modern practical option.
These adorable bottles come in funky and fresh colours with names like raspberry, spring green and ocean blue. Lifefactory’s nipples and colourful sleeves are made from medical grade silicone so all components of the bottle are bisphenol-A (BPA), phthalate, and polyvinyl chloride (PVC) free. I especially like that I can freeze pumped breast milk right in the bottle and warm straight from the freezer without worrying about cracking, unlike with other glass products. The reason these bottles are capable of withstanding such temperature changes is because they are made using thermal shock resistant borosilicate glass – the same glass used in chemical laboratory equipment. The bottles can be hand washed, boiled or placed in the dishwasher without removing the sleeve, which saves time and ensures that pieces don’t go missing.
The silicone sleeve included with every bottle adds a splash of colour while giving your child a tactile experience. I love that it protects the bottle from becoming slippery with condensation and my son is fascinated with the cut-out circle pattern. Each 4 oz. bottle comes with ring, cap, plug and stage 1 nipple (9 oz. bottle comes with a stage 2 nipple) – you can purchase additional accessories so your lifefactrory bottle grows with your baby. There are four flow options, as well as standard white or coloured baby bottle caps for use without the nipple for drinks or snacks later on.
