Are you re-using your old bottles and bottle nipples?

Hi ladies,

My twins are 5 years old now and I kept all their bottles and bottle nipples, which is really a lot of them, as you can imagine. I know that during this period, avent changed the material to BPA. Mine are of course, still the old ones.

I did buy some new bottles this time around (I'm 29 weeks pregnant with one baby this time), but I'm in doubt about the nipples. Do I throw them all away and buy new ones? We can afford to do that, but I just don't know if that's really necessary, given that I took really good care of them?

I will attempt to breast feed this baby too, but last time around I wasn't very successful so I want to be ready in case this doesn't work again.

No. We have recycled all of DD's bottles and teats.

Both silicone and latex teats need to be replaced every few months so I would get rid of them

I'm sure they recommending replacing the teats every 2months so I would buy new ones. Did the new bottles not come with any?

Ok, thank you all.

Yes, the new bottles came with two new teats I believe - I bought that starter pack from avent.

Will then throw all the old ones away and buy a few more sizes 1 and 2 for now.
