I'm actually very annoyed.

Need new bottles as my steriliser has worn mine. We use CTN bottles with variflow teats.

I spent £10 on 6 bottle with size 1 teats then bought 6 X variflow at about 6 weeks. Costing about £15.

I noticed TT were launching new Ultra bottles - look v nice.

They are only available at Boots - fine- they are £8.99 PER BOTTLE. The teats are £5.49 - so £2 more than current CTN ones AND do not come in variflow.

They are made of the same material but have a slightly different shape.

I feel like I've spent enough money on baby stuff without TT ripping me off!!!

So if you have bottles that work for you why do you need more? I'm confused?

How are they worn? Do you mean they just look more used?

Sorry, the teats are worn when I test a bottle some come out some don't. I would like to replace them. If they were size 1 it would be cheaper to buy a whole new set of botttles.

The markings have come off the bottle which is ok as we use the PP machine anyway.

I would take the teats back to the shop, they are unsafe if they are weakened surely they would have to replace. then try a different method of sterilisation.

Confused. Are the new ultra ones replacing the CTN ones or just an additional option? If so, then surely you can stick with the CTN ones your happy with and you won't be ripped off by the new ultra ones?
