Not to brag, but we are selling glass baby bottles like hotcakes! We’ve certainly noticed the growing attractiveness to glass bottles as opposed to plastic, and we’re here to tell you some reasons why parents might be making the switch to glass.
Going plastic-free sounds intimidating, but no one is saying you have to chuck out all the plastic products that you and your little ones swear by. Making a few teeny tiny adjustments might make your life a little easier!
Buying glass bottles is an easy and practical first step to becoming more sustainably-minded – something everyone seems to be thinking about more and more. Shifting to a long-lasting, glass product just makes sense for a lot of people and makes your home that little bit more sustainable.
This is just one reason why parents are opting for great products like glass bottles, and products made from more natural resources.
A more sustainable future
Living a more sustainable life seems to be a growing trend among parents and it’s not hard to see why. We all want to create the best future we can for our little ones, which includes doing our bit for the environment they’ll grow up in!
Personally, we’ve set ourselves the ambitious goal to remove single-use plastics from our packaging and facilities by the end of 2022. We’re on track and making conscious choices in our packaging and our products every day to look after our planet for future generations.
Listen, we’ve all taken an extra long shower for some peace and quiet or driven to the shop that’s a 6-minute walk down the road – reducing your carbon footprint can be tough sometimes. But buying glass rather than plastic is a simple and effective way to create a more sustainable future for your little ones.
What are the main benefits of glass bottles?
There’s nothing worse than when your plastic containers start to get a little orange from washing them with last night’s tomato pasta sauce. The good thing about glass is that it won’t stain or hold on to smells like plastic bottles might.
You know what they say, if you can’t stand the heat, get out of the kitchen. You need to know that, when sterilizing or preparing formula, your baby bottle can hold up to the hot temperatures they’ll be exposed to – time and time again.
Some plastic bottles contain BPA which can be harmful to your little ones (rest assured, Tommee Tippee bottles don’t). Glass bottles are 100% BPA free so there’s no need to worry about your baby’s health when it comes to feeding.
The main concern around glass seems to be breakability, but they’re more durable than you think! Our glass is tempered, meaning no more worrying about the inevitable bumps and drops that come with feeding your little one.
Some plastic bottles morph and distort over time, especially when exposed to high heat. Tommee Tippee bottles are made to hold up to extreme temperatures, but buying glass over plastic is a sure-fire way of ensuring your baby bottles last as long as your little one needs them.
Choosing what’s right for you
Buying bottles isn’t an easy task, there are so many choices and you never know if you’re making the right one! Consider these factors in your search:
Our bottles are designed with your hands in mind – so they’re easy to hold and hang on to when feeding!
Tommee Tippee’s bottles all have an extra-wide neck and breast-like nipple to help babies make a natural latch and secure seal.
Our Closer-To-Nature bottles only have 3 parts so it’s easy to separate and clean or pop in the dishwasher!
If you need some convincing, our trusted Partner, Hilaria Baldwin, loves our Closer-To-Nature bottles!
“Having a bottle designed to mimic mom’s breast was vital to ensure a natural latch for my babies…. I completely fell in love with Tommee Tippee’s Closer to Nature bottles and it’s always one of the first things I buy when I’m nesting for one of my babies.”

Coming up with fun activities for the kids during this time is extremely important for all of our emotional well-being. One of the activities we've been doing is going outside in our yard to have picnics. I'm five months pregnant and starting to think about the essentials I need for when baby is born. I have used @tommeetippeenorthamerica ever since I had Carmen, and I'm super excited about the 3-in-1 bottles because they're stage appropriate for all my children. As they go from bottle to cup to container they've been fun to bring out on our picnics because they're shatterproof and super kid friendly #nipplevision
Remember, if your baby has a Tommee Tippee bottle that they can’t live without – don’t worry about it! We are 100% baby safe, no matter which bottle you choose.
