You can buy teethgrin

I would use the bottles again but buy new teats.

I'd also probably re-use bottles but get new teats - but not invest in too many till I was sure new baby would take them (I knew a good few mothers who had acquired a massive selection in an effort to find one acceptable to their DC...)

i had my daughter last year -so my bottles and teats were brand new then and-am due again this aug-so im going reuse mine-and the teats as i bought 2 sets one was new born flow and the other lot for when they can drink faster-they all still in pretty good condition...........and was expensive at time -got my dd at moment 2 other handle cup bottles to use for her juice and milk......though she dislikes using sippy cup which am still trying to get her used to.

Same as other replies, I intend to use same bottles but and buy new teats for them.

I intend to use same bottles with new teats too. Do check them thoroughly for cracks, the risk is that bacteria can grow more easily in old cracked bottles, so as long as they are in good condition crack wise, IMO its OK.

Ooh i think it depends how old bottles are. Personally I'd buy new ones. You don't know what minor damage there is to them. They're not that expensive either...
