What to do with his old bottles?

I am cleaning out my kitchen cabinets and I realized I still have my son's Playtex nurser bottles. My first thought was to throw them out, but then I wondered if someone else could benefit from them. We have a huge yard sale here every spring and if I put them out for a few cents a piece, it might help someone out. If I knew someone who had a little one, I'd just give them to them, but I don't.
I wouldn't sell the nipples, as my LO used to chew them, but do you think it would be ok to sell the bottles?

  • yes it would be ok, Im sure a lot of people would feel comfortable using them since no food actually goes into the bottle and they can just buy new nipples and the liners.

  • gosh yes. sell, donate, offer to a preg. friend, etc. I bought used bottles once but only because I owned a real sterilizer at the time. Not nipples, just the "shaft"

  • For the little amount you could get for them -why not donate them to an organization that helps moms in need. They DO encourage the girl to give birth (at the very least) & if they want to keep & raise their child-- them help them do so. Almost every community has these organizations. We have Pregnancy Resources, Crisis Pregnancy Center here but also check out Birthright. I like to help organizations that encourage giving birth rather than the unpleasant alternative. They need any other( clothes, money etc.) support too.

  • I'd donate them to a local shelter, without the nipples of course.
