Love the quality
I don’t think you can buy better for the price/quality of these Cherub Baby glass bottles. The glass is of a laboratory standard and comes with a 12 month warranty, which tells me it’s super strong. I like that you can take it apart and put everything, except the silicone sleeve, in the dishwasher to clean. Love this!

Initially loved these bottles, now extremely disappointed in their quality
We first bought these glass bottles for my baby daughter last September, and I was very happy to have found what seemed to be such an excellent plastic-free option for her. It's a really nice design and the 1 year guarantee against breakages was also very appealing. Despite the bottles being advertised as break-resistant, we have taken all cautions to try to minimise her dropping the bottles from her highchair, supervising her closely.
The problems we have had are as follows:
- In December of last year (3 months after purchasing), the white ...plastic collar (which the handles are attached to) cracked at the top after she dropped it onto the linoleum floor at her daycare. I emailed Cherub Baby and they said these collars were not included in the guarantee, but replaced it for me as a "one time courtesy", which I very much appreciated. - In early June of this year (8 months after purchasing), my daughter dropped one of the bottles off her high chair onto our dining room floor (wooden floors, not tile or concrete) and it cracked (did not shatter). This was replaced under their guarantee, which I also appreciated. I noticed that this was a slightly different bottle to the original ones which we had purchased (unsure if this is a lesser quality glass also given the two incidents below). - In late June of this year (after only using the REPLACEMENT bottle for a matter of days), my daughter dropped the REPLACEMENT bottle from her high chair again onto our wooden floors and it completely shattered - water and tiny shards of glass everywhere, very hard to clean up safely. I emailed Cherub Baby and was informed that the drop guarantee terms and conditions cite that "Only one claim can be made per order per customer within the one year warranty period." Hence they would not replace this bottle under guarantee for me so I purchased a replacement bottle at the standard price, but they did send this to me with free shipping. - Today (after less than 2 weeks of using the SECOND REPLACEMENT bottle), my daughter dropped the SECOND REPLACEMENT bottle from her pram, which sits very low to the ground, approx 1 foot, onto the floor of the store we were in (linoleum floors, not concrete). It shattered with water and glass everywhere. Needless to say, I am so so disappointed with this overall experience, but in particular how easily the two replacements bottles shattered, especially the second one which dropped approx 1 foot onto the ground. I find it hard to understand that these products were apparently tested from heights of up to 3 storeys; it seems unbelievable to me when two broke from a distance of 1 metre, and one from a distance of 1 foot.

As a more traditional mum, I prefer glass to plastic for my children, but I have been wary about finding drinking bottles and cups that don’t break or chip. The Cherub Baby glass straw cup has proven itself time and time again. Toddlers drop and throw things all the time, and my two little ones are no exception. I’ve lost count about how many times these straw cups have been dropped and they're still in one piece! Plus they have funky colours, so there’s no argument about who gets which one.

Good product good service
I ordered this glass bottle online after reading about the bottle drop guarantee. If a company offers a 12 month warranty on a glass baby bottle they must be pretty confident right? And so far so good. The bottle arrived quickly, and I’m very happy with it. My baby has dropped it and it hasn’t broken. The silicone sleeve is a great colour distraction plus it really protects the glass. Love the colour change feature when the milk is too hot too. I’m loving it so much that I’m going to order the twin pack.

Couldn't recommend it highly enough
This is the only glass bottle I have bought that hasn't broken on me!! Absolutely love them!! They are very durable and toddler proof! They are easy to clean and have great colour options.

Glass does break when dropped!
I bought the 240ml straw glass bottles as I was looking for a non-toxic option to plastic, and these were a great option. And they have a no break drop guarantee which swayed my mind even further, so I bought 2 for my little one. In general they are a great bottle but unfortunately if they are full of milk and are dropped, parts of them break quite easily and so does the glass! After not very long of having them my little one dropped both of them a few times, initially it was the plastic caps, that hold the straws in, that split so I needed to ...replace these quite a few times, but then the glass broke, even with the silicone protective cover on it! I don't know if it was the angle it was thrown-off a high chair- or that it was full of milk making it heavy, but they still broke. I took photos of them and the company was very helpful and replaced them straight away which was good, but then my little one broke another one so I'm in the process of getting that replaced too! So I guess if you can try and stop a toddler from dropping them on the ground they will be a great option and you do get the glass replaced but nothing else so you do have to buy extra parts all the time if they break too. I will still use them for home use as long as they keep replacing the glass if it breaks, but it is a bit annoying!
Thought it would be a great replacement for plastic. It leaks constantly. We have made sure all parts are dry so there should be a decent seal but NOPE... Still leaks. The teat hole is also so wide it leaks if ever left on its side.

Worst bottle ever
All this bottle does is leak- even when the 'anti colic valve' is facing up. When I shake the bottle when preparing the formula, it leaks EVERYWHERE I literally leave a trail of milk from the kitchen to my bedroom. When I feed her it leaks all over my daughters face and neck. In other words I have to always have wet wipes on hand when using this bottle. Changed to the AVENT glass bottle because I don't know how many litres of milk I'll be wasting when my daughter starts to hold the bottle herself.
Definitely DO NOT recommend this bottle to anyone. Not worth a single cent.

Practical and safe!
A great bottle, love the versatility of option bottle to straw sippy cup. I also love the colour changing sleeve! So handy for those late nights when you don’t no what’s going on!

surprised with the bottle's toughness
Babies + glass = breakages, right? Not so with this glass baby bottle. I must say I have been pleasantly surprised with this bottle’s toughness. My toddler has thrown or dropped it many times and it’s still in great condition. The silicon sleeve is very durable and helps with my son’s grip, plus it changes colour to warn when his tea is too hot! This is a neat reusable product and a great alternative to plastic, which has to be a good thing.
I love this glass bottle!
I know it’s the ‘old-fashioned’ way, but I was a bit nervous about switching from plastic to glass bottles. I was reassured by Cherub Baby’s Drop Guarantee which gives the glass bottle a one year warranty. So far, so good, I’m loving the bottle and more importantly my baby is too. It comes with a silicon sleeve that protects the glass and also changes colour if the liquid inside is too hot – this has proven to be very useful! All in all it’s a great product and I’m not sorry to have made the switch.
Chemical smell from silicone teats
The glass bottles themselves seem alright but the silicone attachments give off an awful chemical smell. My baby hated it straight away and I could even tell that the smell was being transferred into the milk. Surely this is not food grade silicone, whatever they're using it seems to me like a cheap China sourced product. The smell of the silicone is nauseating. Horrible product for a baby bottle.
Was surprised that the bottles are really not breaking
I love the bottles because it has been proven to be highly-durable and the sleeves/bumper turns to white when the bottles are too hot for the bub. I say that it’s durable because for me the bottles have been so strong in handling drops. I really can’t remember how many times the bub have dropped them but still it showed zero signs of damage and still works perfectly.
bottles are great for wriggly toddler
These bottles have gone through a lot. I can’t remember how many times its been dropped and it is still it its best condition. I’ve read that if it breaks, the company will replace it. So far I’ve been loving it, the color-change feature has saved me heaps of time because the time have for checking when the bottles are ready is what I use in looking after the wriggly bub I have.
Both bottles broken within two months of purchase
I find plastic icky so was very happy to be using these glass bottles for my toddler with the straw adaptor. Unfortunately we found with both bottles that the silicone sleeve doesn't stay firmly in place on the bottom of the bottle and both broke as a result of being unprotected. I reported this to Cherub Baby and they basically told me I was wrong because the sleeves were 'made for that purpose'.
Excellent product, affordable price
I've tried Avent, Spectra, Pigeon and Medela bottles, but for the same price (bought on sale from Cherub baby), i got these durable, eco friendly and healthy (no bpa or other chemicals leaching int baby's milk) from Cherub baby. my baby prefers the Pigeon teats and the great thing is these are completely compatible with the Cherub baby bottles.I haven't experienced any leakage even with the Pigeon teats on the cherub baby bottles.
Terrible faulty product do not waste your time or money
I bought 2 of these bottle for my twins, and BOTH excessively leak from where the lid screws onto the bottle..
I bought these bottles with the sippy cup attachments, which are the handles and the sippy teat.
The product even appears cheap and makeshift, the handles are a really bright white that dont match the bottle lid in material or colour.
These handles and sippy cup attachments are clearly an afterthought therefore are faulty and leak excessively.
Also the sippy teats basically dont work as u have to suck really really hard to get anyt...
sturdy enough to handle
I never regretted my decision to buy this product. It is made of highly-durable glass which doesn’t break even if my baby throws it all away from our living room to a far away part of our home. It’s a top-notch sleeve (I really can say that!) contributed to its durability and its color-changing feature is superb, it even tells me when the bottle are too hot to use!
dropped a few times but still good as new
It took me a lot of courage to get the glass bottles. However after giving this one a shot, I think we made the right decision. The bottles are made of high quality glass. Back then when my baby was throwing tantrums, I was really scared that the bottles might break but they didn’t, not even after 20+ throws! The colour-changing feature is also awesome, it tells you when the temperature might burn the baby’s mouth.
Don't waste your money.
Purchased glass bottles and sippy cup attachment to avoid plastic with my second baby. A complete waste of money. I have been unable to use bottles as the seal is not good enough and they leak on my baby or in my bag if we take them out with us. Also dropped a bottle and the plastic rim around the teet shattered. Very, very unhappy with this purchase.
Questions & Answers
My baby just turned 3months and the past month I started noticing the teats would push in while she drinks or the bottle will start leaking. Even when I put the ring in they still leak or the teat still pushes in. I hand wash and sterilise them in your microwave steriliser. Also noticed the teats colours changed a bit. Not as see through as they used to be anymore. Am I doing something wrong? Are the teats old and need to be replaced?
Thank you for taking the time to talk to us regarding your bottles- that should not be happening and we would need further information from you if thats ok :)
Please send us an email at: email@example.com and we will happily help you out and get you back to using your bottles
Where does the fine ring go, on top or under the teat?
In the bin. They don't work.
There's no need to use the ring unless you are converting the bottle to a sippy cup using our sippy cup adaptor pack.
