Green to Grow Bottles

Oh, hey, did I mention we got our http://www.greentogrow.com/ a couple weeks ago? I mentioned them originally here. You know, the Bisphenol-A and Phthalate free ones?

Well, we used them fairly extensively for the first time on our trip back home for Thanksgiving. I like ‘em. There are, like with everything, good and bad point about them, which I will attempt to outline here:

Good:

  • Plastic. And not the bad plastic. We like glass, but to put the glass in a diaper bag is not something we like to do.
  • 5 ounce size. The glass we have are 4 oz. Believe me, the extra ounce comes in handy. Especially when travelling. We also have some Born Free Bottles, but they only come in sizes which are way too big right now.
  • They are kind of cool looking. Yeah, I know – silly, but a plus, none the less.

Not-so-Good:

  • As I mentioned before, they are a bit pricier than glass. Maybe that will change if more people buy them.
  • The stuff printed on the bottle scratches easily. We didn’t have this problem with the Avent plastic bottles we used with my daughter. And we used those for years. It isn’t really that big a deal if the cute cartoon fruit guy on the front gets scratched. But, if we lose the measurement stuff on the back… that won’t be quite so okay.

Overall, we’re happy with them. Will we buy more? Probably not. We use glass in the house, and three is sufficient for most travelling. Maybe when we move up to a bigger size for him, but then again, we already have the Born Free in the bigger size…

    Just saw this and was wondering if you were using a dishwasher to clean the bottles? We have several of these and we have not had any issues with the cute artwork or measurements scratching off. We have been washing them by hand and they still look as good as new.

    [Kaz: Sometimes, if we need to fill the top rack, we will throw bottles in the dishwasher, but it is usually by hand. I am not positive it was the washing that did it — could have gotten scraped by anything. We don’t use them often, but so far, we have not found any additional scratching, so it may have been just a fluke…]
