Probably about 6 months old. Then just made sure I rinsed bottles with boiling hot water.

Milk can breed bacteria like crazy so if you miss washing it off then sterilising kills any left over. It's got nothing to do with bubs putting objects in his/her mouth off the floor!!

Hot soapy water from day one. Midwife advised us and that's what we did.

I stopped sterilizing when DS was around 8 months old.

The point to sterilizing is this - (per the WHO). Formula is made overseas, the product is not deemed reliable to be clean ie it harbors bacteria. The only way you can prevent the bacteria growing is to prepare it in a sterile place ie sterile bottles, teats etc in boiling water that is used within 2 hours. the international guidelines recommend sterilizing up to 6 months minimum, after this babies have a more advanced immune system. I am aware of infection control through my profession and before bub was born I wasn't going to steralise, that was until I learnt the formula is unsafe until the bacteria is eliminated. There are up to date feeding guidelines that are evidence based which take the should I shouldn't I queries out of the equation for feeding your baby safely.
