Does plastic make that much difference over glass?

plastic baby bottles are easy to clean and they are environmentally friendly (most are recyclable).

Some plastic baby bottles can be recycled through your local recycling centers or curbside pickup. Check for the raised identification number on the bottom of each bottle. Most bottles will either have a number 4, 7, or no number at all.

If your bottle has a number 4 or 7 there is a a good chance you will not be able to recycle it in the traditional manner. Contact your local recycling centers to see if they accept plastics with a PIC (Plastic Identification Code) 4 or PIC 7. If they do, great! Your work stops here, just drop off your supply of bottles with those numbers.

Polycarbonate plastic is used for a reason: It's useful. Hard, shatterproof, lightweight and clear, it's in a huge range of products from water bottles and food storage containers, to lenses in eyeglasses and car headlights, CDs and DVDs, and even bulletproof glass. "Whether you realize it or not, you use it in your life every day," says Steven Hentges, head of the polycarbonate group at the industry lobby organization American Chemistry Council.

Better alternative than heavy glass bottles because a baby using a glass bottle might accidently hit himself with it and be hurt, as opposed to a plastic bottle which you wouldn't have to worry about in this regard.

The Juvenile Products Manufacturers Association (JPMA), which represents the leading manufacturers of baby bottles in the United States, stands by the scientific research indicating that plastic baby bottles are safe.

Sound and respected scientific research has consistently shown there is no danger to consumers when products are used as intended. Trace levels of bisphenol A (BPA) from consumer products are well below any level that could cause harm to adults or to our children. Other scientific studies have shown that BPA has NO effect on the reproductive system, NO effect on the developmental system, and NO cancer-causing effects. Recent reports indicating otherwise are both sensational and biased, and they have not received any validation from the scientific community.

Researchers tested 19 baby bottles purchased in nine U.S. states and Canada. Bottle brands included Avent, Dr. Brown, Evenflo, Disney, Gerber and Playtex. When the bottles were heated to 175 degrees F (80 degrees C), every one of them leached bisphenol A at about 5 to 7 parts per billion. The report also suggested that because of the chemical makeup of bisphenol A, it may leach more in fatty or acidic liquids, such as milk or apple juice, than in water.

Glass baby bottles retain heat very easily and can be kept warm longer than their plastic counterparts.

If you misplace a glass baby bottle around the house and it has milk in it, it will not retain the rotten milk smell like plastic baby bottles.

The glass bottles are very easy to clean and are very dish washer safe.
