Bottles with BPA, Glass or plastic baby bottles

I bought an Avent breast pump when I had my son in 2007, and due to the fact my second is due in one week I phoned to see if it contained BPA.. And it did.

I plan on breast feeding, and was able to get a different pump from a friend but it came with no bottles to attach to it. I've heard that glass bottles are better, but in my 'what to expect when you're expecting' book it says that you should not store breast milk in glass bottles (not sure the reason for that but thats what it said).

I used bottle liners with my first son (who was switched to formula after a month) and it seemed to work well for him, no colic or any thing. And I know the liners don't contain BPA so there is no worries about it there. But I never used the liners for giving breastmilk or storing it. What has every one else used and which do you think would be better for me?

I used glass bottles with both of my kiddos (well, tried to, neither of them would have anything to do with bottles really) and never had a problem with them. I stored the milk in the liners, but I pumped directly into the glass bottles - they fit nicely to my Medela pump. I've never heard about not storing milk in glass though..doesn't make any sense to me except for maybe they always say not to store any kind of milk in a clear container as it's light sensitive? I give glass bottles a big thumb's up! :) And congrats on the new baby coming!
