Plastic or glass feeding bottle?

Patient

Q: Is it safe to use plastic feeding bottle? i read a report recently that plastic feeding bottles release harmful chemicals on exposure to heat. i have been using plastic bottle for my kid since 2 years, sterilizing it in boiling water and pouring hot milk into it. please advice if this is harmful and i should switch to glass bottle.
