Why are Parents are Switching to Glass For Breast Milk Storage and Bottles?

In recent years, there's been a surge in awareness surrounding the potential hazards of traditional plastic breast milk storage and plastic bottles. With increasing reports about microplastics in the food chain and chemicals leaching from plastic containers, you, along with many other parents, are seeking safer alternatives for their little ones.

Burrbaby’s plastic-free, glass breast milk storage containers and bottles are designed to ensure your breast milk stays safe for your baby, while making your breast milk storage and feeding routine more convenient at the same time.


1. Safety First: The Non-Toxic Choice

Your number one priority as a parent is the safety and health of your child. With Burrbaby glass containers, you're making a choice that safeguards against many of the risks associated with exposing breast milk to plastic.

First, our plastic-free containers ensure no microplastics make their way into your precious milk. Unlike plastics which can break down over time, our glass remains stable, ensuring that every drop of milk remains as pure as nature intended.

Additionally, Burrbaby containers prevent chemical leaching. Many parents remain unaware that plastics can release potentially harmful chemicals, especially when subjected to heat. With glass, this risk is entirely eliminated, granting you peace of mind every time you store or warm milk.

Furthermore, Burrbaby glass containers naturally resist bacterial growth. Unlike plastic, which can become scratched and harbor bacteria, glass is smooth and non-porous, making it an excellent choice for reducing bacterial contamination. Glass is also safe to heat sterilize, unlike plastic.


2. Convenience at Every Step


Being a mother is challenging, and every little added convenience can make a big difference in day-to-day life. Burrbaby understands this and has designed our glass containers with busy moms like you in mind. One of the standout features is the ability of Burrbaby containers to transition seamlessly from storage to feeding.

By simply switching out the lids, what was once a storage container can quickly become a feeding bottle, reducing the need for transferring milk and washing extra containers.

Organization is also made easy with our FSC-certified bamboo box that comes with Burrbaby bundles. It ensures your storage containers are organized and secure, reducing clutter and making it simple to grab what you need.

Another major convenience feature is the container's wide opening. This design makes it easy to pour milk from your breast pump and a breeze to clean, be it by hand or in a dishwasher. Plus, the lids even come with space to write important details like storage dates or times, making milk management simpler than ever.

3. Cost-Effective in the Long Run

When new parents first start looking at the expenses that come with a baby, it can be daunting. The continuous purchasing of disposable breast milk storage bags or plastic bottles that require regular replacing can quickly add up. Burrbaby offers a lasting solution that not only ensures safety but also saves you money in the long run.

While the initial investment might seem higher than buying a box of disposable bags, the ability to reuse the Burrbaby containers means they quickly pay for themselves. When you add in plastic bottles that need to be replaced every 3-6 months; the savings with Burrbaby become even more significant. Plastic could cost over $400 per year.

Once your baby outgrows the need for breastmilk, our containers can be transitioned into food storage containers, further extending their usability. And the bamboo box? It becomes an attractive storage solution for a plethora of household items, ensuring that every cent spent on Burrbaby products continues to deliver value for years to come.

4. Eco-Friendly: A Sustainable Choice

Single-use plastics are detrimental to the environment for a variety of reasons. Choosing eco-friendly alternatives is more than just a personal choice; it's a responsibility. Burrbaby's glass containers are an answer to this call.

All the components of Burrbaby products are made with premium quality materials that are built to last. This durability means fewer replacements and, consequently, less waste. The FSC-certified bamboo box is another nod to the brand's commitment to sustainability.

When you choose Burrbaby, you're not just making a choice for today; you're investing in a more sustainable future for the next generation.

5. Bonus: Elegant & Aesthetic

Choosing safe products for your baby doesn't mean you have to compromise on style. Burrbaby's glass containers, with their minimalist design, premium materials, and natural aesthetics, are a style statement in addition to being functional. The combination of clean glass, sleek stainless steel, and earthy bamboo ensures that they're not just containers; they're a statement of elegance.
