How to Sterilise Baby Bottles.
Your baby is most vulnerable to illness during the first year of thier life. If baby’s bottles are not sterilised, it is very easy for virus and bacteria to gather on the bottle and its contents inside and which can make baby ill. It will be possible for your baby to develop anything from mild thrush (which looks like white spots or patches in and around bubs mouth) to a more vomiting and diarrhoea.
It is potentially impossible and impractical to create a totally germ-free environment for your baby but by sterilising your baby’s feeding equipment, you can reduce the risks.
How to sterilise?
There are various different ways to sterilise but steam is the safest, easiest and most cost effective method of sterilising your baby’s feeding equipment and pacifiers. Sterilising is the process used to make reusable baby feeding products free from live bacteria and viruses. Steam sterilisation is preferable over chlorine tablets as it is a chemical free process using only the power of boiling water to create a sterile environment in which to clean feeding equipment.
Microwave steam sterilisers are simple to use and budget friendly!

Electric steam sterilisers are quick and efficient, taking eight to nine minutes, plus cooling time. They can keep bottles sterilised for up to three hours if you leave them in the steriliser with the lid closed.
