Plastic Baby Bottles
Plastic bottles have gained popularity due to their affordability and convenience.

PPSU plastic is medical-grade plastic and offers a higher heat resistance of 180°C.
Featuring exceptional clarity which resembles premium glass, the new T-Ester plastic bottle is exclusive to Pigeon. Popular for it's durability, you can shop T-Ester baby bottle range online or instore at one of retailers.

In the end, the decision between glass and plastic bottles is subjective and dependent on individual preferences, lifestyle, and priorities. Each option has its own advantages, and what matters most varies from parent to parent. Some may prioritise durability and longevity, while others may place greater emphasis on affordability and convenience.
