  • I replace them if they start to yellow, tear or look punky. I sterilize them after each use in a microwave sterilizer.

  • We a few binkies and nipples that were yellowish rubber.

  • New yellowish rubber pacifiers are made of latex & that is the normal color but when they age, they get really very yellow & cracked looking. The clear pacifiers are made of silicone. They will also slightly yellow & get cloudy with age as well. I only buy silicone ones since latex can cause an allergic reaction.

  • I kept all my bottles from my daughter and used them again with my son. I just threw them away if they ripped.

  • Until they look or smell used? Inspect for tears of course
