Glass is back, baby. In the past few generations, glass baby bottles have gone the way of glass milk bottles (and George the milkman) – replaced with plastic. Many parents have concerns about potential chemical leaching from plastic bottles and while safer plastic bottles have arrived on the market (here for example), going back to glass might be the next trend. The wee*go bottle offers a little added protection as well as some color and style.
The wee*go bottle is made from glass, but is protected by a silicone sleeve to minimize worry about breakage. The textured surface also makes gripping the bottle by small hands a bit easier. Both the bottle and sleeve can be boiled or put in the dishwasher.
The wee*go should be available for sale next month with an anticipated pricetag of $18. Check back with the producer, Babylife, for more details about where to purchase one.
(Edited to correct sleeve material from rubber to silicone.)
