Heck no hun. They are just an extra cost. Get a good bottle brush and drying rack...that will cost you maybe ten bucks total for the both and as long as your washing them in hot soapy water your fine.

I would consider that about as necessary as a wipe warmer

Yep you can. They have dishwasher things for nipples and the bottle rings. They cost like 5-10 bucks. And they work great for sippy cup tops too and pacifiers and straws lol

You can use a dishwasher but your bottles will not last as long. I suggest washing by hand and rinsing with super hot water

Unless they're glass! We switched to pyrex bottles towards the end because all of our plastic ones went white and began to crack. We had to buy new ones so we went with glass so that we could use them again with any other children.

If you're worried about your child throwing a glass bottle (because they will) the kind we got has a rubber ring at the top and bottom so that when it hits the floor it hits just the rubber bits. You can also buy these lil leashes to velcro around the bottle so when they throw it it will catch and then swing out of harm's way My daycare at the time was nervous about using glass so I brought in our sippy leash and had no problems.

here's one brand of leash:
Amazon.com: Booginhead SippiGrip, Black: Baby

And here is the glass bottle we bought:

I would not waste my money on one. A bottle brush and drying rack worked just fine thru 2 kids for us so far. I also think a bottle warmer and wipe warmer are also wastes of money!

The only time I really bothered to sterilize bottles with DD was when I first got them. And then I just boiled them in a pot on the stove.

I am gonna go out on a limb and be the only one that says I LOVED my sterilizer! I used it for bottles and nipples because my DD was preemie. But I also used it for pacifiers, toys and teething rings. It is definitely NOT necessary, but I did enjoy mine. It wore out after using it for two kids and I don't think I can justify buying a new one. My first was a baby shower present.
