Most Helpful Reviews on the Born Free Glass Bottle.

  • 5.0 out of 5 stars(5/5) – 3/26/2012 – … the design really drew me into them they were very plain looking but the colic stopper design is revolutionary & the cleaning of it vs Dr Browns design is a snap!!… My daughter has been using them since approx. 1 week old and she is now just about 4 months old they really do help with GERD and or colic issues she is on specialized formula….

  • 5.0 out of 5 stars(5/5) – 5/25/2012 – These bottles are great! Durable, easy to clean and vented. We love the glass option, no plastic or BPA to deal with, and much nicer for baby, and they hold up very nicely to washing. No fading of the printing, or old scratchy look like you get with plastic bottles…. As far as I have found, no one sells the sleeves separately, unfortunately…. You can also easily convert these into a wonderful sippy cup by adding the green to grow sippy trainer spouts…. (read more and buy it at
  • 1.0 out of 5 stars(1/5) – 10/8/2012 – We tried stove heating and our Dr Brown bottle warmer, both heat sources broke the bottles, regardless of batch…. If you do not intend to heat your formula/milk, these might be a good choice since they are glass. However, if you are going to heat it up, avoid this product. On the good side, we have dropped these on our DuraCeramic floor, and 4 out of 5 times they did not break…. (read more and buy it at
  • 5.0 out of 5 stars(5/5) – 7/28/2011 – I love these bottles. I am a little turned off by plastics, especially when used in the dishwasher, so I wanted glass bottles for my son. I was concerned about breaking them, but no worries. My husband actually dropped one off our front porch onto brick and it rolled down two brick steps and then on to our brick walkway and I couldn’t BELIEVE it didn’t break. These bottles don’t leak at all either…. (read more and buy it at
  • 5.0 out of 5 stars(5/5) – 12/24/2008 – I must say.. we have been using dr. brown’s bottles since the birth of my son… we needed a few extra bottles and could not find the glass browns bottles and ended up taking this one home to try. I love the width of the top, it allows you to add your formula nicely with out any spills…. (read more and buy it at
