7 Ways to Save on Feeding Supplies


Because Mason Bottle products are 100% Made in the USA, we're not the cheapest bottles on the market. We think it's worth it! Plus you'll still save a ton in the long run. Here's how:

1. Make Your Own Mason Jar Baby Bottles

    Buying lots of glass bottles can cost you. But you can get a dozen jars from the hardware store for about a dollar each. Then just get a set of Mason Bottle Silicone Nipples or some Mason Bottle DIY Kits to make your own affordable glass bottles.

    2. Use Mason Jars Instead of Plastic Breast Milk Storage Containers 

        One less thing to buy and one less thing to throw away since breast milk storage bags are single use (and prone to leaking, btw…) You won't spill a drop of milk or waste a minute of your time. Learn more about how to simplify your pumping routine with mason jars here.

          3. Use Mason Bottles, Skip the Bottle Brushes

             The wide shoulder-less design of mason jars means there are no hard to reach places that require bottle brushes or pipe cleaners. So cross those two purchases off your list. Here's our guide to making feeding as minimalist as possible.

            4. Skip the Bottle Warmer (milk may be more nutritious without it anyway)

            While bottle warmers are super handy, warm tap water in a bowl is actually the perfect temperature if you want to avoid damaging the nutrients in breast milk. Learn more about safely heating breast milk and preserving nutrients here.

              5. Use Mason Jars and Our Silicone Sleeve for Baby Food Portions

                 Freezing or refrigerating baby food in 4 oz. jars make a lot more financial sense than buying specialized glass ware. Add a silicone sleeve before serving, just in case =)

                  6. When Baby Becomes a Toddler, Make A Mason Bottle Training Cup

                     When your little one wants to show you how big they are, just put a sleeve on your jar. As we explain on the blog, 4 oz jars make especially good training cups, as there will be less to spill.

                      7. Keep Your Coffee Hot!

                        The 8 oz. silicone sleeve also does a lovely job of keeping your coffee or tea warm. Or even an apple cider for bigger kids.

                        ...And very soon, this list will have a #8, because Mason Bottle is launching a straw top for toddlers and adults in June 2017!

                        @faustisland just bought a pack of Mason Bottle Silicone Nipples, and then combined one with a classic blue mason jar she had at home. Extra adorable!

                        @valeryphalon.photography uses Mason Bottle Silicone Sleeves to make toddler training cups for her big girls.

                        @headygrimm gets a Mason Bottle + Silicone Sleeve ready for her little one. She got the whole bottle including the jar as part of the Essential Mason Bottle Gift Set, but you can also make your own with jars from home using the Mason Bottle DIY Kit.

                        @loveandcovenant uses the 8 oz DIY Kit in combination with their mason jars from home.

                        @eyecreate_ gave her little lade The Original Mason Bottle. The width of mason jars makes them easy to hold for little hands.

                        @headygrimm got the Essential Mason Bottle Gift Set for her little one. It comes with both size bottles, both sleeves, and set of extra set of Medium Flow Nipples.

                        Paola used Mason Bottle with her son Max from the day they brought him home from the NICU. Though he didn't take to the preemie nipples in the hospital, he latched onto his Mason Bottle immediately!

                        @sriesland stocked up on mason jars for pumping at work, then she got a Mason Bottle DIY Kit to turn those jars into baby bottles.

                        @MasonBottle we like to use our 4 oz. sleeves with baby food portions.

                        "The nipples are very wide, like on an actual breast, and our daughter really liked them. Early on, she would suck really hard on the other nipples and make a very strange noise. As soon as we changed over to these her feeding became effortless." -Denielle
