Should you reuse old bottles?
This is a collection P2B sees on a regular basis. Bottles given to parents by well meaning friends aka “hand me downs”, or on a visit mum is starting to express or give a bottle or sipper cup so she pulls out the bottles she used on baby #1 (usually 2 + years ago).
You may or may not agree with me and that’s OK because this is my opinion.
Or you may have not even thought about the following:
Over their previous “life” those “hand me down” bottles have been scrubbed with a bottle brush, sterilized, heated, and well used multiple times a day. They get the most use, the most wear and tear, and the most mileage from your little one.
I liken it to using a plastic drink bottle. I personally wouldn’t use one after 12 months of regular use. Once I notice any deterioration of my drink bottle – it gets thrown out. Your little ones bottles and dummies would be used more than my drink bottle.
