The reason I ask is because I've been using the breastbottle. I purchased 3 of them. I called the company and they will not sell just parts. So I would have to buy all new bottles. At about $12 each I really don't want to do that again. I have avent and playtex new nursers. DD tried those again today and did much better though she still had air leaks on the side of her mouth with the avent and I still think that the playtex flows too fast.
So, what if I swab the breastbottle nipples really good with GV after a LONG boiling with vinegar and the lid on the pot (increases water temp)? I'll toss them if I have to. I'm hoping dd gets back to the breast pretty soon since she seems to be doing better with swallowing.
in summary - at what point do I replace the nipples (5 days, 7 days, when no visual signs of thrush...) and is it absolutely necessary?
