Sterilising your little one’s beloved baby bottles goes beyond keeping things clean – it’s about protecting your child from harmful bacteria that may cause some nasty tummy bugs. Before the very old age of 12 months, your baby’s immune system is not yet fully developed, meaning they are more susceptible to illnesses than bigger babies.
That’s why it’s so important to sterilise your baby bottles before the first use and then after every use and wipe out those annoying germs found in milk residue that might be lingering.
We recommend that you sterilise anything that comes into contact with milk, breast or formula and anything that regularly goes in their mouths. This includes bottles and teats, but you’ll also need to sterilise breast pumps, soothers, toys and teethers after every use. After sterilisation, your products will stay sterile for 24 hours when stored properly. We know, it seems like a lot of work, but it really doesn’t take too long and its super simple – it’ll become a natural part of your daily routine in no time!
