Tall Mom tiny baby: Baby Essentials: Born Free Glass Bottle Gift Set {review}

Baby Essentials: Born Free Glass Bottle Gift Set {review}

Wednesday, January 1, 2014

For eight months I have almost exclusively breastfeed my son.  But, despite my best efforts, I've come to grips with the idea that I cannot always be by my Itty Bitty's side. Sometimes I have to leave him with someone else - a sitter, a friend, grandparents, or even ::gasp:: Tall Dad :)
But, um, Houston, we've got a problem - my baby has become a food snob, or more appropriately, a BOOB SNOB.   He doesn't like to drink out of bottles for anyone - sitters, friends, family members or even Tall Dad himself.  Sometimes, he will go on a food strike, and wait for me to come home to satisfy his snobbery.

We have tried several different types of bottles over the months, and didn't have success until we tried the new glass bottle from Born Free.  Maybe it's the size of the nipple, or the special device inside the bottle that helps control the flow, but whatever it is - Itty bitty now drinks from a bottle when I am away.
Born Free is a sister brand of Summer Infant - a Rhode Island based brand who's products I already love and trust!  Born Free is also the first of its kind to design a line of BPA and PVC-free products!

The Born Free Glass Bottle Gift Set includes bottles and nipples in various sizes, a bottle brush/sponge, a nipple brush/sponge, and a formula dispenser.  Each bottle comes with special venting pieces, which are clinically designed to help with colic and gas.  It feeds the baby and creates a steady flow of liquid only when the baby sucks - just like breastfeeding!  



This gift set comes with two silicone sleeves to add a bit more grip to it and make it a little bit more safe for Itty Bitty. In regards to the cleaning system - it's a sponge rather than a bristle brush, which is great because I feel like it cleans the bottles much better than any brush. There is even a separate sponge brush only for the nipples! For convenience sake, all bottle pieces are dishwasher safe, but I often wash the bottles and nipples by hand because its quick and easy. 

I would certainly recommend Born Free Glass Bottles to all my family members and close friends.  So, in an effort to benefit my awesome readers, I've teamed up with Born Free to host a giveaway for the same set that we have!  Just enter below. Good luck!

  3. I love this review and have been looking into glass bottles. I could definitely use this, my baby is due March 4th, and I would love to breast feed, but he needs to get used to bottles as well since he will have to start daycare when I go back to work and pump.

  4. My 20 week old daughter is EBF but with my return to work looming in the not-so-distant future we've begun introducing bottles. We also have a boob-snob on our hands but we have found success with the born free bottle systems. Could always use more!

  7. I could use this myself. We are planning to have a baby and we are starting to buy the essentials. I am very paranoid about the harms of plastic, and other materials, so this would be just perfect. Thank you for the opportunity to win. Good luck to everyone. And I wish a lot of success to you in your blog in this upcoming year.
