Storing pump parts/bottles for baby #2?

Hi everyone,


I am in the process of weaning I made it to 6 months and am happy with my decision to stop by the end of the month.


But I have a question...is it sanitary to store the pump parts and medela bottles for baby #2 if I sterilize them before I store them and sterilize them again before I use them for the next LO? I have so many bottles and extra horns that I bought but I'm not sure if it's sanitary to use them again or should I just throw them away and rebuy everything when I have our second baby.


Any thoughts?


TIA!

Good question. I stored mine in a ziploc bag or other containers and definitely reused them between my children who were 23 months apart.

Great thanks! That will definitely save me some money the second time around!
