How often should bottles be replaced?

A good rule of thumb is to replace your baby bottles after every 6 months as long as they are BPA-free. In case you aren't using BPA-free bottles, remember to buy new ones within three months. Now, that doesn't mean that you'd have to wait 3 or 6 months just to get new bottles.
