We know that sterilising sounds intimidating...
like you should have a lab coat and some goggles to get your baby’s bottles clean! But it’s not all that difficult, you just need the right tools and methods that work best for you & you’ll be fine.
It’s important to remember that there’s not one correct way to sterilise. There are a number of perfectly safe and appropriate methods that will work - it’s just about finding what’s best for you and your little one.
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!

Before sterilising, always wash your baby bottles and teats to remove as much residual milk bacteria as possible.
Most bottles can be cleaned in a dishwasher, on the top shelf only, or in hot soapy water with our 2-inl cleaning brush!
Once clean, sterilise them with your chosen method and you're all good for 24 hours - just make sure you keep them in a sterile place (like inside your steriliser) or reassemble the bottles so the teat is covered and use within 24 hours.
You can also keep sterile bottles in a sealed container in the fridge to help avoid any germs or bacteria getting to them. Just bear in mind that the container must be sterilised too.
