  • I couldn't do it personally, but I guess if you don't have the money for new ones, used ones are better than none. I breastfed my son so I used a real minimal amount of bottles, but I imagine if you're a formula feeder you got through a lot of bottles.

  • For the price they are probably charging you can go to a dollar store and get some bottles. yuckers.

  • You'd be surprised what people will sell (and buy!) I was garage saling one day and was rummaging through clothes. I pulled out a pair of nasty, raggedy, whitey tighties, had tracks running up and down them...I was like um??? lol I was actually horrified, but the lady smiled and said "five cents?" omg that made it even worse...I had to leave her presence. But back to your question, I don't see anything wrong with buying the used bottle, but nipples I would certainly buy new.

  • I haven't bought them but if you change the nipples I don't see no harm.
