Lifefactory beverage bottles are made from soda lime glass. This is the same container glass used for wine bottles and other food storage containers. It is strong but not impervious to rapid temperature changes or impact. Like any bottle, it will expand and crack if left in the freezer or hit with boiling water.
DO NOT PUT OUR BEVERAGE BOTTLES IN THE FREEZER.
Take care in the winter months. If bottle is left in car during extreme temperatures, glass can become damaged.
Yes. Lifefactory baby bottles are made from borosilicate glass. Borosilicate glass is known for its superior durability, chemical and heat resistance, and is excellent for use in chemical laboratory equipment and cookware. This allows the baby bottle to go from the freezer to boiling water pot without incident.
When freezing, store the bottle in an upright position. DO NOT FILL TO TOP. Leave a minimum of 2oz/58 ml of open space from neck of bottle to allow for expansion and prevent glass breaking while frozen.
No, you can leave the sleeve on the bottle and wash the whole thing in the dishwasher. The bottle and sleeve in tandem can be placed on the bottom rack of the dishwasher.
If you wish to remove the sleeve, it’s best to use warm, soapy water to carefully slide the sleeve off of the glass. To put the sleeve back on the bottle, use warm soapy water to slide the sleeve back onto the glass. Rinse off any residual soap from the bottle and let dry.

While our bottles are durable, we do not claim our product to be unbreakable. We understand accidents happen, so we offer plain replacement glass bottles in the event that the silicone sleeve and cap are salvageable after breakage. This offer is valid only for customers with a US shipping address in the 48 contiguous states. Replacement glass for glassware such as the wine glasses and beverage glasses are not offered at this time.
Replacement bottles must be requested directly through a Lifefactory representative. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your US shipping address and confirm the size of the bottle needed. We kindly ask that you do not send us your broken glass items, it is a safety hazard to our Lifefactory staff.
Our adult water bottles are not microwave safe. DO NOT microwave the adult water bottles. (12, 16 and 22 oz bottles).
Our glass baby bottles and silicone sleeves are microwave safe (4 and 9 oz bottles). We get asked by lots of moms if it is OK to use a microwave to warm up milk or formula in our glass bottles - the answer is yes. Please remove tops and nipples before microwaving. Please test the temperature to ensure that it is safe to drink. We also recommend shaking the liquid before testing the temperature to eliminate the hotspots that can occur with many microwaves. Some of our labels and inserts state that our products are not intended for use in a microwave oven. This is a general statement because our bottles are not specifically developed as cookware/bakeware.
Glass is clearly a better choice for baby bottles. Plastic bottles can leach chemicals into milk or juice (including BPA/BPS); glass does not. Plastic bottles can scratch, and scratches can harbor bacteria—glass does not. And plastic bottles typically end up in landfills when their useful life is over; glass is recyclable and reusable, and is better for the environment.
Most parents like the idea of using glass but worry about breakage. Lifefactory offers a solution by combining a sturdy glass bottle with a custom-designed silicone sleeve to protect the glass from breaking.
