How often are you supposed to replace baby bottles?

Someone told me that you should replace the bottles after every child. Something to do with the plastic breaking down? Anyone heard of this before? I know you should replace the nipples, so I suppose it makes sense to replace the actual bottle but I never thought about it before now.

I tried that with my last baby but she was really picky about her bottles and wanted a wider nipple. I may try them again, since I have them, but I do like using the wider ones. It seems to make going back and forth between BFing and bottle feeding easier.

are you breastfeeding? or using formula
you do know that bottles arent even necessary. if she is picky, she can just be fed with a syringe or even drink it right out of a cup.

I've heard that plastic bottles can get tiny cracks that can  harbor bacteria. I'm kind of wondering this myself- number 2 is due in July and I have a ton of bottles that I want to reuse but I'm debating if it's worth the risk. I'm leaning towards no.

I have to supplement because of a medical condition. It's an uncommon one and I have seen several professionals about it. I am actually lucky that I can nurse at all! Some women can't at all with this condition. So I nurse as much as I can and give formula as well.

I replace my baby's bottles every three months. It's a habit. To me after three months they are gross.

That is kind of what I am thinking too. I might try Playtex Nursers (the drop in kind). That way, no bacteria problem. However, I worry that will get expensive.
