    Default What did you do with your used baby bottles?

    I'm getting around to sorting through the madness that is my house and I have LOADS of bottles that I would prefer to donate rather than bin.
    They were hardly used. DD only took formula for about a week and the rest of the time she refused any that were made so they're in really good shape.

    Is my only option to recycle, if I can even do that?
    I don't know anyone having a baby soon either.

    I think I still have mine in a container somewhere.

    Yes my son is 4.5, I have no plans to have other children, and I may be a bit of an unintentional hoarder

    You could list them on facebook buy/swap/sell, even as a freebie if you want to get rid of them quickly?

    Yeah a freebie would do. But is there any places in Sydney that would take them, like a Vinnies for pregnant women? I don't know if anything like that exists.

    I'm not sure - what about a local women's shelter?

    Great idea, you could also Google your local area to see.
    Maybe a local playgroup or daycare might like them ( even to use for dolls)

    Dandelion Support Network in Sydney takes pre-loved baby things (including bottles in good condition) and packs them up to go to mums and families in need. They have regular donation days.
