Munchkin Mighty Grip Glass Bottle: The Real Worry-Free Glass Option

03/27/2009 at 07:00 AM ET

I’ve long been a fan of the Playtex Drop-Ins. But now that my twins are holding their own bottles, they have a hard time getting the last few ounces out of the compressed liners. So I’m on a mission for a replacement. At first glass was not an option. They love throwing their bottles at the end of the meal, and I just pictured glass shattering everywhere. But Munchkin’s Mighty Grip Glass Bottles changed my mind.

The esthetically pleasing design caught my eye immediately and the contoured sides made it easy for my little ones to get a grip. Also included is the Healthflow® Vented Nipple designed to prevent gas and colic. The silicone disc ensures that no plastic (from the cap) ever touches what’s in the bottle. And if—like me—you’re afraid of broken bottles, Munchkin has perfect little silicone Bottle Sleeves. They help improve grip, reduce breakage, insulate the bottle and add a pretty pop of color. Sliding the snug silicone sleeve onto the bottle took a little effort, but the end result was well worth it. The bottle stayed in one piece even my son forcefully threw it across the kitchen. The Mighty Grip Glass Bottles and Silicone Bottle Sleeves are both available in 4oz. and 8oz. sizes.

Munchkin bottles and accessories can be found at Target, Babies R Us and other retailers nationwide.

I’d like to give my own review on this product. Our daughter was born 5.5 weeks ago, and I went through a bunch of different bottles, both standard size and wide mouth nipples. This bottle was one of my lesser favorites. It was awkward to hold, and was pretty heavy. The Evenflo glass bottles worked just as well, and were easier to hold in my opinion, although those are pretty heavy as well. The whole “vented nipple”… it’s the same as any other standard nipple. I only know this because on top of the Munchkin and Evenflo bottles, we also tried the Gerber (the cheap plastic ones), and Medela. The nipples ended interchanged at some point in the last 5.5 weeks and they all work the same. Out of all of the bottles I just mentioned mentioned, along with the Playtex drop-in system, the Playtex Vent-air, and Dr. Brown’s, the one I like the MOST is the cheap Gerber bottle. It’s light in my diaper bag, works just as well as the glass bottles, is BPA-free, AND is the cheapest bottle you can find. I also like the Medela bottles, but they are the same quality of the Gerber bottle, but more expensive… you’re basically paying for the Medela name. Now that we know what we like, once we move to the 8 oz. bottles, we will purchase more Gerber bottles.
