I have been using the Munckin bottle brush, but the sponge on the top rips off in just a few uses! :( I then bought the Munchkin Deluxe bottle brush which doesn't have a sponge on the top, but the problem is that it's too wide to fit into my Medela bottles. If anyone can suggest a good, durable bottle brush which isn't super expensive, I'd love to hear from you.

What can I do next?

I have an Avent bottle brush that has lasted for quite a long time (over a year). No spongy thingy on it. It fits into narrow bottles, including Medela.

I love the Avent bottle brush - been using it since the sponge on the Munchkin bottle brush ripped off like yours. The Avent brush works great with Foogo drinking bottles for the older kids, too.

I like the OXO bottle brush because it has a long and sturdy handle. Other bottle brushes I've tried get bent up too easily.

I think I use a nuby one. I had the same exact problem with the brushes that have sponges on them. I have also used another brand, but I can't remember the name. When it is time for a new brush, I just go to the store and see what is available. Look for a bottle brush without the sponge and then look for a skinnier one instead of the ones that fit into the widemouthed bottles. I like to find ones with a suction cup bottom and a nipple brush all in one. That way, you never have a bottle or nipple brush laying down on the counter. You might have to go to a few different stores. The first brush I liked came from babies-r-us, but when I went to get a new one, they only sold brushes with sponges or ones for wide necked bottles. Then I went to Target and found one that met my standards. Stores change their inventory regularly, so just because you found one at the store doesn't guarantee it will be there again, and a store that didn't have it might in a month.
