Who can advise? Can share with me?
when dear son was young, we changed his teats monthly, and bottles 2-3mths. after he started semi solid, we change the teats every 2-3 mths and bottles depends on the condition. =)
why is it that we need to change it so often? my son is 4 months old and i have not changed anything.
I change when it becomes "slimy" - sticky, opaque. no matter how you wash, it can't would look clear like when it was new.
hmm.. it didn't occur to me that teats needed to be changed. this topic never came to my mind at all. haha!
ok, i shall look out for signs of age and it being un-washable. =)
the tell tale sign of when to change teats is when it become cloudy...ie no longer transparent.
and of course when your baby is taking longer than usual to finish the milk or they start getting frustrated cos milk flow too slow
so that means that we have to throw the bottles after 6 mnths?!!
will change when it becomes yellowish/slimy..like every 3mths
