    Default Re: Sterilizing bottles & room temp boiled water.

    We only sterilised the first week, after that just hot soapy water and rinse. Same with temperature.. First week was warmed up... After that I went room temp.

    It's interesting how some hospitals are now saying not to sterilise. I had my bub 9 weeks ago & our hospital advised to sterilise so we will continue to do so. It's not much effort. We wash in hot soapy water and then chuck in the microwave steriliser.

    I was advised almost 5 years ago by my hospital not to bother sterilizing

    We stopped sterilising DDs bottles when shes 12 months old and will likely do the same age for DS. We wash in hot soapy water then use the microwave steriliser.

    DS was a summer baby so we never bothered heating his formula, only on really chilly mornings now we heat it a little, but most often its room temp.
