Old baby bottles

Hi - just wondering what people tend to do with old bottles?

I replaced mine recently as I read you should do after 3 months. However it feels wrong to just throw them away - are they reusable or should I just recycle them? (they're plastic)

Might sound like a stupid question but feels like a waste!

I pushed my few to the back of the pantry..... Then gs came along and I bought some new teats to keep at our house!! Also keep one as a measure for the dc to use for baking instead of my glass jugs!!

I put mine out for the recycling. I'm sure they would be recyclable

I use them as measuring cups and to take cheese to work for pasta if I've run out of lunch boxes grin

You don't need replace baby bottles every three months. What a waste. I should imagine the bottle companies think it's marvellous.

You don't need to replace bottles after 3 months, what a waste! Replace teats when required and replace bottles if they are scratched or damaged, not just for the sake of it

All good points above- the plastic ones do tend to discolour a bit so don't think its a bad idea to assess them although agree its a waste and the manufacturers are having a laugh.

Local schools and nurseries might like them for their role play areas. I take mine into work for to use with our home corner and baby clinic role plays.

Baby bottles are not made from plastic which can be recycled.

Didn't realise they were supposed to be replaced every 3 months? Whats the reason for this?

Bottles do not need to be replaced every 3 months. I only replace them when I needed to. Teats can be replaced yes, but no need for bottles to be.
