BFing mamas: Has your baby ever been given a bottle?? How do they do with one??
Bottle feeding mamas: Do you hand wash your bottles or do they go in the dishwasher??
Jacob is in daycare so he gets bottles everyday. We started giving him one bottle a day when he was around 4 weeks old. He doesn't really like the bottle, he must prefers mom's boob to the bottle..lol. We just bought him some faster flow nipples that seem to be helping him with the bottle a bit more. The slow flow just seemed too slow for him. he always would get tired of the bottle before he had finished then was hungry again very soon.
We usually hand wash our bottles. I use playtex nursers with drop ins so I usually just wash the nipples. I will occasionally wash in the dishwasher.
Thank you *Kiliki* for my beautiful siggy
Kira does great with a bottle. We started her taking the bottle at night very early on and she has never had trouble switching back and forth. It's funny, in the morning/afternoon she prefers the boob, but at night she gets angry at the boob and wants a bottle. Hey, whatever works!
We use the dishwasher for bottles. With both hubby and I at home now we go through so many dishes that we're running the dishwasher every day anyway.
Nick only gets a bottle when we are out for a very long time cause I'm too chicken to BF in public (even with a cover). He doesn't seem to care where his milk comes from as long as he gets it. I like knowing that I can go to the gym and other kid-unfriendly places and not have to rush back to feed.
We hand wash all bottles. We have a "bottle bin" next to the sink and each night before bed, one of us will wash all the bottles. I have enough bottles to get through the day and not have to re use them. We have a separate drying rack for our bottles apart from our normal dishes as well.

Jax has had a couple bottles. I was concerned about how he would take one, but he liked the first one we tried (Medela)! He will be getting bottles everyday at daycare starting in August. I always hand wash bottles. I don't trust our dishwasher!
