Page 73 and onwards, point 8.3.1 advises formula is not sterile and can harbour the organism cronobacter which has high risk of mortality.

In many hospitals the bottles come in sterile packets and the formula comes in tetra packs not powder. The bottles are one use only. Working in the health industry I can only suggest you do your own research. Health professionals are human beings who need to keep them selves updated as does their manager. Personally I wouldn't be relying on them when it comes to infants, sad but that's life sometimes. Having said that the risks are low but its easy to sterilize so why not?

12mths. Everyone said that washing in hot soapy water is enough, but IMO you never know if youre going to have the water hot enough. Bacteria is killed in temps above 65deg. Is your washing up water actually 65deg? I sterilised water and bottles ect until 12mths. The only exception would be putting them in the dishwasher.
