i've been using bottle feeding since son is 3mths old. now he is 6mths old. when should i change the milk bottles and teats? i've pierce additional holes on the teats to cater to his month-age.
i am using avent 260ml bottle and avent teats. kept seeing these "BPA" on the bottle labels. what are they?
for bottles, dear son has been using Avent 260ml bottle from 3mths old till now, so far have not change yet.. as for the teats, we change every 1-2mths.. as for the sizes of teats, we change his teats to the 3mth+ one when he reached 5mth+ old.. and few days ago, we just change the teats to 6mth+ ones. he is currently 8mths old =)
Some mommies recommend to change the bottles once every 3 mths...coz w the daily sterilize the plastic may leach into the milk... but i also know some mommies use the bottles for up to 2 yrs... well i guess it is up to individual comfort level ...
As for me, i just changed my boys bottles when they turned 8 mths.... as for teats i changed as the boys progressed from 3 mths old, 6 mths old....
i've been thinking of changing since my girl was 6mths.. but dragged until she was 1.. then i change her normal 9oz avents to a 9oz BPA free avents.. teats, i changed with her age, then when she started biting into the teat, i changed them more often.. as long as there's a "enlarged" hole or "extra" hole appearing, i change..
i also change the teats when it starts to show biting marks or color change..anyway teats are quite cheap.
as for bottles, have been using the same bottles since dear daughter 8 months...maybe time to change..
