Runaby Baby Glass Baby Bottles
When my first baby was born, I went into research mode. Back in 2007 it was just becoming known in the United States that BPA was a horrible chemical, prone to disrupt hormones. I vowed to never buy a product with BPA. a few years later when my twin boys arrived, I had done even more research (a mother's research is never finished!) and found out about even more terrible chemicals in plastic (such as phthalates & pvc) so this time I vowed to be done with plastic. We did glass bottles and I still don't regret it. Even without the yucky chemicals in plastic, I have found that when it comes to drinking things I personally find them to taste better out of glass. It holds the temperature better and it doesn't have any plastic-y after taste. I was excited to come across the Runaby Baby bottles because I have several friends pregnant with their first children right now and I want to share my love of glass bottles with them. The Runaby bottles come in 4 oz and 8 oz sizes and are available in pink and blue. I received the pink bottle. My first impression was that this was a super light bottle for 8 oz of glass! Ir is made of baby safe glass and surrounded by a layer of medical grade silicone for added comfort and safety. The bottle is an hour glass shape for easier gripping and contains removable handles to coordinate with whatever stage your baby happens to be at. The silicone sleeve is dishwasher safe and doesn't need to be removed from the bottle upon washing, that is a huge win for a busy new parent! My only complaint is that these bottles are not available in a gender neutral color. I would love to see green and yellow options available for those parents who chose not to find out the sex of their baby or who just don't care for pink or blue so hopefully we will see those options in the future. I will definitely be recommending the Runaby Baby bottle to all of my expectant friends!
