Many are switching to glass containers from plastic containers, avoiding the chemicals that supposedly come with the latter. From lunchbox containers (aka baunans) to baby bottles, cheaper plastic is being replaced by a heavier contender.
One couple, Laura and Sebastian Belmar, thought it good as well to get their child glass baby bottles. They soon found, however, that the glass alternative was far more expensive than the plastics. Hence, they decided to create glass baby bottles of their own. Cheaper and nontoxic, they’re making theirs with mason jars.

Mason jars have invaded every nook and cranny of our lives so much that even our babies might soon be getting into them. The Belmars have yet to sell their idea to the public but they are prepared to if they reach their $25,000 goal on Kickstarter. As of writing, they're already nearing $22,000 with 7 days left to go.
Here’s what their mason jar baby bottles are like.
According to the Kickstarter page, the majon jars are temperature resistant, easy to clean, affordable and sustainable. Plus, they’re stoutness makes them easy for baby to hold in his tiny hands, they said.
Because the jars are temperature resistant, you can store milk inside them in the freezer with just the lid. When it’s feeding time, you can simply take one out, heat it up and screw on a nipple. If you’re on the go, the nipple can be placed upside down for storage inside the bottle and put right side up again for feeding.
