Did you use a new bottle for every feeding, or re-use the same bottle all day?

I use the same bottle all day long, just rinse it out between feedings and fill it up again. Then I'll start with a new bottle the next day. What about you?

  • i also used the drop ins. They were so much easier to use and I was worried about the whole bottle contamination thing when my dd was born. I also just kept a whole bunch of nipples and switched them out regularly. It proved to be much easier and more sanitary.

  • I premade all the bottles for the day in the morning or the night before - then just washed/steralized them the at the end of the day.

  • No. You have to make sure you use a clean and sterilized bottle everytime. You know how much milk can build up around in a bottle or nipple? I would never. I have about 10 bottles and use about 6 a day. And after each use, they get washed in hot water in the dishwasher.

  • Both my girls I used diffrent bottles at every feeding. My sister however I think is gross she uses the same bottle anywhere from 1-4 days with just rinsing it out or just taking a bottle brush and washing it under the running water. That is nasty

  • Ew gross, I would never go that long without washing the bottle! *gag*
    I use the drop-in system too, that's why I use the same bottle all day. But between feeding I pull the nipple and cap off and scrub them for the build-up. But I do wash the entire thing everyday for those that called me gross... :-/

  • New bottle each feeding because I made them up ahead of time for the day and kept them in the fridge. Besides it is much more sanitary.
