What type of bottles do you use?

I'm using the Medela Calma (5), Medela regular (6), and Avent Natural (2)

How many do you use a day?

I almost use them all throughout the day because Lilly still drinks every 2 hours most of the time

Do you wash by hand or in the dishwasher?

I wash them by hand because the dishwasher never got the nipples clean enough.

Do you ever rinse and reuse?

No, I wanted to do it once and the nipple just didn't look clean enough, so I just washed it real quick.

How often do you sanitize them?

Honestly, never done it.

Do you wash by hand or in the dishwasher? Hand wash in-between uses.

What type of bottles do you use? Dr. Browns
How many do you use a day? About 8 - she eats ever 2 1/2-3 hours during the day but longer at night
Do you wash by hand or in the dishwasher? By hand most of the time - just easier
Do you ever rinse and reuse? No, but unlike last time, i will save unused formula in the fridge if it is over an ounce. I'm not entirely sure why they say not to, but it's too expensive to dump
How often do you sanitize them? Once, when i take them out of the box. That is it!

What type of bottles do you use? the disposable gerber bottles but we bought some Tommie Tippie for when they run out.

How many do you use a day? We go through about 8 -10 a day
Do you wash by hand or in the dishwasher? We'll be washing them by hand
Do you ever rinse and reuse? We won't, it takes just as long to wash it as it does to rinse it.
How often do you sanitize them? We sanatize when we take them out of the box and then we'll probably do it once a week or something. Not sure yet.

What type of bottles do you use? Tommee TIpee

How many do you use a day? I just gave her her first bottle last night! Eek!

Do you wash by hand or in the dishwasher? Dishwasher for shizzle! hehe

Do you ever rinse and reuse? I rinsed and re-used the bottle I pumped into, but then saved the pumped milk in a clean bottle in the fridge.

How often do you sanitize them? I just ran them through the dishwasher. I don't have a sanitizer and I had a horrible fail once where I melted all my bottles with boiling!

What type of bottles do you use? We are switching to Avent

How many do you use a day? Normally around 12. That includes night feedings.

Do you wash by hand or in the dishwasher? Dishwasher for sure!

Do you ever rinse and reuse? Only if I had just used the bottle not long ago or if I have none clean and she is screaming for a bottle (very rare).

How often do you sanitize them? Yes, I sanitize every wash because my dishwasher has a sanitize option. It's just a button away, so why not!
