BPA Free Glass Bottles

I would like to switch from Plastic bottles to glass ones b/c of the dangers. Looking for a great safe, Bisphenol-A (BPA), phthalate, and polyvinyl chloride (PVC) free bottle. Are all the plastic parts like the nipple and valves BPA free too? What are you opinions? What do you think of glass bottles with the silicone covers? Ease of hand washing? I'm considering "WeeGo BPA-Free Glass bottles"
Thank you!

What can I do next?

We used Evenflo classic glass bottles with with Gerber NUK nipples. The plastic rings on evenflo are BPA free and the nuk nipples are silicone. Packs of 3 evenflo glass bottles w/ silicone sleeves cost $10 at target. They are super east to wash and very affordable.

I don't know about your state but in NJ BPA is now outlawed in baby bottles. Born Free has always been BPA free. Glass is naturally BPA free but glass does break. Personally, I would not go with glass because of that issue. What if it breaks by your babies eyes? Or he steps in it? I don't know, do they make shatterproof glass?

I used evenflo. They're cheap, the perfect size and easy to clean. Never had an issue with breakage.

My SIL used Dr. Brown glass bottles, they were a nice heavy glass, she has broken a few though and they are pricey. Read up on them, they seem like great bottles. Patented no air, bubbles, vaccum etc.

Born Free makes a glass bottle, which we use. Since Born Free has always touted itself as BPA free even for its plastic bottles, I can only assume the same is true of their glass.
This bottle has a gas-free attachment as well, and my daughter has not had to burp since we started with them (at about 1 yr, so maybe that's moot anyway)

We too did the Evenflo classic glass bottles.. Great price on them, easy to wash with a bottle brush. I really like using the glass bottles because they are easy to clean.. They look great while plastic can start to get scratched up and not look so fresh... glass looks great all the time.. My daughters never had troubles with them and we never broke any and have dropped a few.. but if you are worried the covers are not that expensive seeming you can use the same ones over and over.

I used Evenflo classic glass bottles for my daughter's daycare (pumped breastmilk).
I had started out on Avent plastic bottles, but she hated the nipples and I had a tough time getting the bottles clean in our crappy dishwasher.
The evenflo bottles were cheap (5.99 for a 3 pack), fit the only nipples my daughter would take (Gerber NUK) and had no other parts involved (no valves etc.). They were easy to clean in the dishwasher and by hand.
The glass is quite sturdy and only one ever broke on us, when it fell on the concrete floor at daycare.
They also fit the Medela pump, so I could pump directly into them them (not sure if that's a consideration in your case).
They don't look as stylish as the newfangled glass bottles, but I can only recommend them.
Good luck.
