This bottle says it is silicone and plastic, and while I was originally thinking of buying glass, I'm rethinking it due to the fact that I will so rarely use it. I'm only getting one in case DH needs to feed the baby in an emergency situation. (I'll be breastfeeding obvioiusly!)<br><br>
What do you think? Would it be crazy to get it for the rare use or should I still go for glass? Opinions please!<br><br><a href="http://www.babysupermall.com/main/products/adi/adi42443.html" target="_blank">http://www.babysupermall.com/main/pr.../adi42443.html</a><br><br>
Thanks!<br>

you never know what your baby will like. Sure, I'd give it a try, I've heard good things about that or similar products.

I don't know if I would go for glass, but check out this review (I found it very informative and helpful): <a href="http://zrecs.blogspot.com/2007/07/z-report-bisphenol-in-polycarbonate.html" target="_blank">http://zrecs.blogspot.com/2007/07/z-...carbonate.html</a><br><br>
The breastbottle apparently contains some polycarbonate - there are a few other safer suggestions on the list.

Great site!<br><br>
I've breastfed all of my children, but we sometimes have bottles around for those rare times when they may be needed. I think I'll be dumping all of my plastic bottles and buying some safe ones if we decide that we need a few.

If you only need the occasional "backup" bottle, I'd go with glass and silicone bottle nipples.

i'd try that Born Free type of bottles. even though they are plasctic, they are supposedly safer that reg. plastic bottles. i may try glass as another option.

I wouldn't get any bottles at this point honestly. I never even had one in the house for dd and never missed it.<br><br>

Get whatever you feel comfortable with, but keep in mind that even a newborn can be fed from a regular cup. Shot glasses work well--just put a little milk in there and tip it so the milk touches the babies lips. It takes a while to feed a baby this way, but so does breastfeeding and using a cup won't affect latch the way bottlefeeding sometimes can.<br><br>
peace, Beth

Medela makes polypropylene bottles which are considered safer plastic. Since the part of the adiri bottle that actually comes into contact with the milk and the baby's mouth is all silicone, I'd be comfortable using it. I think the polycarbonate part would be the bottle cover the huge nipple screws into and the ring.

Just an FYI - DH talked to someone at Dr. Browns today and they said that they will release a glass bottle in 3-4 months. The inserts (currently and in the future) are made from PP which is a BPA free product so they will be safe.<br><br>
Just wanted to let you all know.<br><br><br>
