    Would appreciate it if anyone can share with me how long do you change your baby's used milk bottle i.e how many months later do we need to change it to a new one after using it?

    Hi Blisslive

    What I understood is you need to change teat every 2-3 months...milk bottle as well....taxing on pockets huh....

    I am using Avent so this is what I was told...

    Dear Sunglow

    Thanks for your sharing. So far I had been changing the teats from size S to Y. I am using Pigeon. However, I heard that the whole milk bottle need to change after 3 or 4 months too.

    Yes...like I mentioned, the milk bottles also need to be replaced with new ones every 2-3 months....

    As Avent has indication as to which teat to use for what age baby, I generally adhere to what they say...

    Hi ladies, it all depends on what kind of bottles you are using. If you are using the glass type, you don't need to change unless your broke it. Of course lah.

    However, if you are using the plastic type, then you have to change it once every quarter. If KS a bit, change it every 2 to 3 months. This is because plastic bottles tend of the hairline scratch that you can't see it. Chemical will leak into the milk. Especially we steam and stem and steam it.

    Same for teats. For hygiene purposes too.

    didnt know that have to change the milk bottle every 3 to 4 mths..

    the milk bottle that my son is using, has been used for 6mths plus.

    I thought to only change teats every 2 mths n bottle theres no need to.

    do mummies here really change the milk bottle ???

    I think if the bottles that you are using are not BPA free, then shld change it every 6mths max or when there's cracks.

    For the teats, I think as long as there's no tear I wldnt change it till the next level lor.

    if the bottle is BPA free, is there a need to regularly change the bottles? cos BPA free bottles not cheap ah, quite taxing on the pockets.

    why does BPA free botles look yellowish compared to the clear transparent non BPA free bottles?

    I agree that BPA free bottles are very expensive. use MAM ones for my gal. As the bottles are colored, I can't tell whether they are yellowish.Have been using for 3mths le. Not sure whether to change it or use for another few months.

    Anyone has any idea?

    For my 1st bb I used BPA free bottles for about a year, no problems.
  18. bluemarinesg

    bluemarinesg New Member

    I change the teats about 4-6 mths after using. No fix rules for me though. If the teats turn super yellowish or are torn (such that the holes become gaps and will interfere with the baby's sucking), then I will change.

    Bottles leh... As I have 10 bottles in use at any one time, I think I only change them once a year? Not very sure. Same as teats, only change the bottles when necessary. Like too many scratches. Usually I will tab on 'trade in your old bottles' promo. Like that then wu hwa (worth while) mah....

    We change bottles every 4 months or once the colour changes. Teats almost every other month 'cos many are torn from biting (teething). BPA bottles seem to last longer. Using both types at the moment.
