10 of the best glass baby bottles for Earth Day and any day.

With news that even Phthalate-free and BPA-free plastic baby bottles may not be all they’re cracked up to be, more parents are on the hunt for glass baby bottles. While not long ago, the idea of glass baby bottles once inspired panic in the hearts of new parents — and I remember those days! — glass in the diaper bag is becoming increasingly prevalent. Even old school bottle brands that were holding out for years are now out with glass alternatives and hey, we’re all for choice when it comes to our baby gear.

Comotomo: Cool new silicone baby bottles that are soft, gentle, and awesomely squishy

As a mom of three, I have checked out my fair share of bottles. Some are great while others…just awful. And during those sleepless days (and nights), it’s fair to say that a bottle that eases my mind, whether the baby is right in my arms while I work from home, or away from me when I’m getting a needed break. Lately, I have been trying out the Comotomo soft baby bottle system which is made of a safe silicone that’s super squishy for little hands can grip them comfortably.

A formula dispenser bottle that’s a game changer when you’re on the go.

While it falls squarely in the category of #firstworldproblems, making bottles with formula when you’re on the go can be a pain in the neck. Individual sleeves of formula are easy, but not in my budget. Those little three-way containers are an improvement over lugging a value-sized container of formula in my diaper bag, but it can still be a mess to pour it into the bottle while I’m trying to balance a baby on my hip too. So I’m thrilled to share the a new formula dispenser bottle  from Australian company b. box that I discovered, because it’s going to make life easier for a lot of new...

Silispoon: Possibly the new best baby spoon

Ahh, the teething phase. Which is only made worse by the fact that it occurs the same time as the baby food phase. My kids liked to soothe their aching gums by biting down on their spoons, but even the plastic ones couldn’t have felt that great. That’s why I’m convinced the best baby spoon for teething kids may be the brand new Silispoon from Silikids. The flexible silicone bends and squishes, which is perfect since babies chew on absolutely everything when they’re teething. (Who else has the bite marks in their skin to prove it?) The flexible silicone scoop of the Silispoon bends when...

Nutribaby Food Processor: Possibly the new must-have baby registry item

So yeah, making your own baby food can become daunting and tedious surprisingly fast, even for people like me who love to cook, and even if we have awesome baby food gadgets like the excellent Beaba Babycook. But even with the Beaba (and other similar products), I often had to steam one ingredient at a time since each required different amounts of water and time to cook properly. Also, the smaller capacity meant spending double or triple the time to make a decent batch of food to freeze so I didn’t have to do it all again the next day. Problem solved, now that French company Babymoov has...

The Munchkin LATCH bottle may be the closest to breastfeeding yet

When my first baby was just a few weeks old, I injured my back which meant medicine for me and bottles for my baby. I was a basketcase, and he was totally confused because he was used to nursing. Of course there are all kinds of reasons that new moms bottle feed, and I really believe that having the most breast-like bottle for your baby can be ideal, especially if you’re weaning or experiencing unexpected incidents like I did. The newest bottle to mimic breastfeeding is the LATCH bottle from Munchkin.I’d say that while it doesn’t look like a boob, in some...

A Keurig machine for baby formula. No, really.

When I recently heard about the Baby Brezza Formula Pro, a new Keurig-like machine that dispenses baby formula, I chuckled to myself and thought, How hard is it to shake a bottle? But after re-experiencing the sleep deprivation that comes along with having a newborn myself (gah) I’ve decided this nifty device might be a winner for parents whose babies formula feed. If you can work a Keurig, you can work the Brezza. The Baby Brezza gives you one-touch access to pre-mixed formula that’s the exact amount you need and the right temperature you need it to be. When baby is ready for a...

Baby bottles that come close to the real thing. Or so we can hope.

When my daughter was a baby, she was a hardcore bottle protester. I went through every single bottle brand I could get my hands on at the local Target, hoping that one would magically work on the kid. Luckily, with Baby #3, I think I’ve found a bottle that I am hoping will avoid some of that hassle right from the get-go. This line of baby bottles from Comotomo might do the trick for any baby suffering from what experts call “nipple confusion.” (anyone else hate that term and want it banned forever? Not just us? Okay). The inventive...
