I'm still pregnant, and planning my baby registry. Though I hope to be able to stay home most of the time, I will have light needs for pumped breast milk, when I leave the baby with my MIL for a date with my husband, or if I have to take occasional, part-time work. I am wondering, though, if there is any point in registering for glass bottles, since breast milk needs to be stored in the freezer unless it will be used within three days. I am thinking it will probably be best to keep some in the freezer, since I don't know whether my milk supply will facilitate sporadic, last-minute pumping or not.
I have generally come to prefer glass storage for food, because it seems like researchers are always coming up with a new problem with plastic. We now know to avoid BPA, but who knows what will be next. I am starting to read that glass CAN be frozen if done carefully. Have you had any luck with that? I would hate to have to throw away breastmilk in a broken glass bottle, or, worse, accidentally have the baby ingest broken glass. I know I can buy plastic bags/liners and then transfer them to glass, but if I'm going to do that, I might as well skip a step and just use a plastic bottle.
