Is it bad to share bottles between twins?

I've heard alot of people say not to share bottles and spoons between twins but my boys share a spoon cause i have to feed them at the same time or the other one goes nuts. I mean i know if one is sick then duh dont share but i dont see it as that bad to share between them. What do you think?

  • no, no more than other siblings share drinks... because what one has the other will get anyway.

  • when babies drink from bottles, their saliva gets pushed back into the bottle. so unless you're okay with one of the twins drinking milk that has the other's saliva in it, then no it's not good for them to share bottles.
