Dr. Brown's Glass and Polypropylene Bottles

Dr. Brown's Introduces Glass and Polypropylene Bottles


Like strollers, cribs, and nearly everything else baby–related, I was stumped when I had to buy bottles for my baby. Unaware of which brand or style to purchase, I went on the advice of fellow mothers and bought a supply of Dr. Brown's.

My friends said that the patented internal-vent system incorporated in the Dr. Brown's Natural Flow bottle helped their babies avoid gas, indigestion, and, in some cases, colic. I was sold. My only problem was that the bottles were only available in plastic, which is a serious downer for mothers like myself trying to avoid it.

But alas, Dr. Brown's has boarded the glass-bottle train. In December, the manufacturer began selling its genius bottle in glass form ($13 for two 3.5-ounce bottles). And late next month, the brand will be introducing its newest line of polypropylene baby bottles.

Which do you prefer: plastic, polypropylene, or glass bottles?
