Ok, ok. Handwashing a couple bottles isn't anything to cry over, but we needed to have more on-hand, so I picked up a $6 three-pack of Nuby's 8 oz Non-Drip Baby Bottles at our local discount kid's store, 1/2 Price Kids. ($4.99 for 2 on Amazon.)
My only real beef--and it is a beef I have with many bottles--is that the oz/ml measurements on the outside of the bottle are starting to rub off. Come on bottle manufacturers! Can't you use something more permanent on the outside of the bottle? I know Nuby does actually make a great nurser bottle where the numbers are just stamped into the bottle plastic (think raised like braille.) This is what I would like to see on all bottles in a perfect mommy world. Hah!
Bottom line: Even if you have to remark the oz measurments with a Sharpie and spend some extra time cleaning the unconventional nipple, these are good, solid bottles for the budget-minded mama and her not-very-fussy toddler.
