If you hand wash bottles,

How many do you have? We have to use the Ventaire system and there are so many parts. I feel like I'm always washing bottles.

  • I always had at least 3, but at one point I had 6 so I only washed bottles once a day.

  • I have only ever had two bottles at a time - but I HATE doing dishes, so I kept it to a minimum so that I would be forced to wash her bottles right after she used them.

  • I only had one bottle while my baby bottle fed. I just cleaned it right after he was done.

  • I breastfeed and pump (occasionally). I just started with Prince Lionheart bottles. My (and my husband's)favorite by far. And there aren't a lot of parts, either. Anyway, we wash them in bunches.

  • I had enough to get me through a whole day of feeding. We washed a lot of bottles. We used Dr. Browns bottles and I would wash them a couple times a day so that I wouldnt be hit with like 6 of them before I went to bed. I know how you feel about all the parts. Dr. Browns bottles had 4 pieces to them. It just became part of my everyday and it didnt bother me so much after awhile.

  • Ugh we used Vent Air bottles and I haaated washing bottles. Sippy cups are so much easier!! But I would wash at least 5 at a time, more if I had been extra lazy. We had up to 30 bottles (for ONE baby) at one point because I hate washing them so much I just started buying new ones lol.
