    I switched all of my houshold and personal products to Ava Anderson Non Toxic since getting pregnant in Feb 2014. I have faithfully used them and recently became a consultant because I am so passionate about spreading the message about avoiding toxic chemicals and sharing the research with fellow mammas and mothers to be. I would be happy to share my knowledge with anyone interested. Please send me an email at or visit my Ava site to learn more I also use Dr. Browns glass bottles and love them.

    @rrp14 - thanks for the recommendation! I just looked it up on EWG and there are great ratings. can i order directly from your site? do they offer samples?

    You can order directly through the site. While the company doesn't have samples, it does have an amazing 30 day return policy. The stuff is really amazing! I am a devoted convert!

    Love all things Ava Anderson! I was also curious too regarding the glass bottle preference. My heart says go with the life factory because of the silicone sleeve for protection- but they are more pricey than the rest!

    @mrsreagan81 - I use life factory for myself right now and the biggest pain in the butt is cleaning the sleeves as they are hard to remove and put back on so i give up and just throw it in the dishwasher. i see that born free now makes silicone sleeves for their glass bottles but i dont know about the ease of taking them on and off.

    The little one has dropped his Dr. Brown's glass bottles before and they have not broken. I tried life factory, but like you said, the sleeve is a pain. We just are a bit more careful with the glass ones. Also, pure kiki makes aluminum bottles which we are just starting to use and really like. Maybe look into those?
