Many parents are preferring glass baby bottles over plastic ones because of concerns about the former containing a chemical called bisphenol A (BPA) which is linked to some health issues. While they are more expensive, breakable, and heavier than their plastic counterparts, glass baby bottles ensure that no harmful chemical leak into milk babies consume.
Furthermore, glass baby bottles can be easily sanitized by boiling or heating without getting deformed. With proper care, they are also more sturdy than plastic and can be used by the next child. They are also recyclable and more eco-friendly because they were made without petroleum.
Because of their weight and fragility, baby glass bottles must be properly packed to ensure that they arrive intact and in perfect condition. Here are tips on how to properly pack and ship baby bottles.
Clean the glass baby bottles including nipples and caps. Make sure that everything is completely dry before packing. Place the nipples on the bottles and put the caps on for protection. Wrap each bottle in a generous amount of bubble wrap, making sure that all parts are well protected and padded. Use tape to secure the wrap in place.
Arrange the wrapped bottles in a box with a layer of fillers on the bottom. Fill the sides of the box and spaces between bottles with more packing materials until the box is packed to the brim. Close the box and shake a little to test for any movement and add more fillers as necessary to keep the items from moving.
Close the box and seal with packaging tape, securing all seams to prevent them from bursting open during transit. Address and label the package. Take the package to the post office or shipping company.
