  • I did with my youngest two, there were 15 months between them. I can't see why it's bad if you sterilize them before using with your new baby.

  • Doesn't hurt as long as you sterilize them. Just check the nipples as you may need to be a new set of those if they are starting to go bad.

  • Bottles yes, nipples no. Nipples weaken with use and over time.

  • The bottles themselves are ok. We threw ours away, including our unopened ones, because they weren't BPA free! I wish we had known about that with our first.

  • I read that bottles also break down after time, especially if you use a dishwasher...so I wouldn't re-use them unless your babies are really close in age. Also, bottles only recently became BPA free, so I would want all new ones.

  • We are reusing the bottles from our first, however, we bought new nipples. I also don't buy into the whole BPA thing so I don't worry about that.
