Glass Feeding Bottles

I remembered that my mum fed my younger brother with glass feeding bottles when he was a baby. In fact, most of the olden days mother practiced the same way too. In the 80's and 90's, the trend has switched to plastic feeding bottles again. The reasons are glass bottle is heavy & fragile. It may break during late night feeding. Moreover, you can never let you growing baby have the ease to learn to self-feed because the weight of the glass hinders him to prop the bottle up all by himself.

For quite sometime, nursing mothers have made plastic bottles their top choice because of the durability and practicability. However, due to certain health issues with plastic manufacture, glass baby bottles have made a big come back. For example, Biphenol A (BPA) was known to be hazardous to infants most especially causing health problems like cancer and hormone system change. I have posted few links below for your further reference.

As a new mother-to-be, I have known my priorities for my baby Ethan at the moment. Glass bottles will be my choice. It does not retain odor after soap wash & does not pose any health hazards to baby. When our baby starts to learn holding his bottle, then I'll switch it to BPA free feeding bottles. What do you think of this idea?

If there's BPA in there, who knows what else. Although, I grew up with plastic bottles (I think) and I think I'm pretty normal. Right?
