  • Yes that’s absolutely fine when they’re thoroughly sterilized.

  • Yes, as long as they’re sterilised before use – which you should do every time anyway.

  • I agree with mom102959. The bottles can be sterilized, but I would buy new teats.

  • Only if it hasn’t been used as reusing teats are not hygienic for any child .

  • If they are super clean like have been used once or twice I cant see why not. But I wouldn’t if it has been used long term.

  • Yes, they should be fine. I would replace the teets.

  • Yes, they are safe for you to sterlise and use. You may wish to get new teats as the holes in them with the bottles are possibly too large You may decide to change them anyway unless they are practically new.
