    According to the WHO you should always sterilize bottles.

    With my first I did until 12 months, with my newest I stopped at 4 months, with all the things he puts in his mouth my dr said it really won't hurt him!

    I was told by the midwife that I don't need to sterilize every day or after baby used each bottle and to just sterilize once a week or so.

    So we sterilize once a week.

    Umm.. What's the point in once a week? I don't get it?

    I believe sterilising bottles once a week or so to be your best bet. Babies need to be exposed to bacteria to strengthen their digestive system. As long as you wash and rinse bottles well.
    Ialways think it's a bit funny the mums that sterilise bottles then when a dummy drops on the floor pick it up and put it in their own mouth to clean it.

    Sterilising once a week will kill all bugs before they begin to build again, like starting a fresh.
    I think it's more important to use different water, sponges etc so they don't get contaminated with food. Lots of different bugs in food to formula!

    We did for the first 2 weeks and then was told by midwife no need to in Australia because we have great tap water quality full of choline. We never sterilised beyond 2 weeks.

    And as a side question - once they start solids did anyone sterilize their bowls, spoons, plates, highchair tray, etc. ?
    I always found it odd when people sterilized bottles but then didn't sterilize any of the other utensils or things that their baby used to eat..
    Amen to that! Common sense right?! :-)
