Medela Bottles Your Experience.

Hi Ladies! I am buying a Medela breast pump and want to buy the bottles to match. The Medela bottles are pretty much the most expensive ones I will ever buy, but they seem kinda flimsy. Do you have experience with them? The plastic seems pretty thin. I wonder how they hold up in the dishwasher and over time. Any experience is greatly appreciated.

What Medela Spare Parts to Buy?

I am moving overseas and want to buy spare parts for my Medela InStyle pump just in case I need them and they aren't available for sale in my new country. Any advice on "commonly replaced" parts? For example, I can see if the shields don't need replacing that often, but maybe the membranes do. Thx
