    Default When you did decide to get rid of your "tainted" bottles...

    What kind did you get? I have decided to go and buy new ones even though dh doesn't want me too. I am torn between the Green to Grow, Wee go and Born Free. What does everbody have? Do you like them? A friend of mine bought the Born free and loves that they don't leak like the Avent so I want to make sure the others don't leak either.

    I switched from leaky AVENT's to ThermoBaby glass about 3 months ago and love them. I thought the AVENT were the top of the line, so why were they only leaking for me, guess I wasn't the only one.

    I've never had ANY problems with the ThermoBaby's that I got at Cheeky Monkey, you can get cheaper ones at ToysRUs I think and other places, but I got a 10% discount on my glass bottles and I only have 5 now so it's all good.

    I have the "ThinkBaby" bottles for Clair (http://www.thinkbabybottles.com) and they are 2 for $21 at Funky Monkey downtown. I like them (well, Clair does) - she had no problem switching from Avent to Thinkbaby whereas other bottles were a problem for her (and by problem I mean she screamed instead of eating).

    ETA: I switched about mid-January...

    I use born free, and I love them...they have a neat valve in them that really reduces gas in my lo. I decided to go glass rather than BPA free plastic, IMO they are still plastic...who knows what they will discover is coming out of them next! I got mine at Cheeky Monkey.
    By the way, my Avent bottles leaked as well!!

    I have some Born Free glass ones too. However, DD won't take a bottle so kinda hard to say if I like them. In the few times I have tried, they seemed fine to me. The nipple is very much like the Avent.

    We switched to the Gerber Clearview. Much more affordable for us.

    I pitched all the rest of our Avents and Gerber's two weeks ago when the Born Free was picked up. I love them.
    DH felt the other bottles were fine since DD used them, but they were five years old. Plus, with all the information out there about the problems with GPA for an extra $25 dollars I would rather be safe then sorry.
    BTW they will leak if not sealed properly, but that's any bottle right?

    These are what I have now as well. Logan's been difficult to get switched to a sippy. He'll use A sippy if I hold it.

    We switched afew months ago to Gerber Gentle Flow. I had to find the most similar bottle to Avent. I knew dd wouldn't do well with a switch. We are wanting to get her fully onto a sippy. We'll be using (if all goes well) Klean Kanteens.

    Our Avents AND Gerbers are horrible for leaking. Avent is by far the worst for that though.

    I totally agree...I'm not changing the bottles that Lauryn uses. Half are on the "bad" list and half are on the "good" list. I too am not over concerned as I feel as though we have not been provided ALL information....

    they are born free wide mouth... 2 are new in boxes/shrinkwrap, 2 are gently used with a small lovable label sticker on them with our family name (I can try to get these off)... we tried both and preferred the plastic so I have no use for these 4.
