While there are many types of bottles, most will be made of plastic, but occasionally they're made of glass or another material. Glass bottles tend to be strong and sturdy, so they if you drop them, they won't usually break. Plastic bottles are lightweight and should be BPA-free but they can wear out more quickly than glass bottles.
The best baby bottles for newborns should have a slow flow nipple so your baby won’t drink too fast. A faster flow nipple will work for older babies who can handle a larger amount of liquid. Those are mostly made of silicone, latex, or natural rubber.
If you’re using bottles consistently, make sure you have approximately six to eight on hand so you won’t have to get out the bottle brush after every use!
