    Default Cleaning Feeding bottles?

    Hi Ladies,

    I need some ideas on how to clean baby's feeding bottles. How long should I sterilize and Is there any soap I can use for cleaning? I have been just washing with plain water and soaking in boiling water..

    All websites say clean with hot soapy water. Please tell me what soap is that.

    Thnx!!




    Selvi.

    Default Feeding Bottles

    Hi Selvi,

    Here is what i used to do: Just load the bottles in the top rack of your dishwasher. The dishwasher will completely sterilize them first with hot water wash and then by drying it with the hot air.

    For the nipples, i just wash it separately in mild dish washing soap solution and then sterilize in boiling water for 3 minutes.

    Hope this helps

    Default Hi Selvi,

    I use to do the same thing as Vandhana. Dishwasher is the best way to wash the bottles completely. In case I wanted it immediately I use to wash it with regular dishwashing soap like ivory,dawn etc.I used an angular brush that you get in Wal-mart that cleans the bottles well in areas that cannot be reached.

    Boil them in water, bottles separately and nipples and rings separately till the water boils vigorously.Hope this helps.

    Bye,

    Anjana.

    Thanks Vandhana & anjana for quick replies.

    one question, For dishwasher loading, should I run without any detergent or use any detergent like cascade/electrosol ?

    Thanks.

    Default Hi Selvi,

    I do use dishwasher detergent for cleaning the bottles[cascade] and it comes out spotless. Hope this helps.

    Bye,

    Dear Selvi

    Cleaning a feeding bottle is not a difficult job at all.In India,we generally do not have dishwashers and so one is forced to clean it by hand with the help of a bottle brush and some liquid soap.Once this cleaning is through,the bottle,the nipple and its various parts are all dumped into a big vessel with lots of water and boiled over the stove.Once the water boils for a few minutes,the stove is switched off.This is how we sterilize in India.

    Here also,you can do all these things.Since a dishwasher is there,the cleaning can be done using the dishwasher.Once the cleaning is thru',sterilize using the above method.I think you get microwave bottle sterilizers also,I am not sure.

    I used to have only 2 feeding bottles for my son.In the evenings,after coming back from work,I used to sterilize both bottles or you can do it in the night. In between,if a bottle had to be re-used,I just used to wash it nicely with soap water especially the nipple .You don't have to sterilize it each time before using.Just wash it well.

    ptamil, when we were in Delhi in February, my MIL got me a bottle of bottle and nipple washing liquid. It's called Stony Angel bottle and nipple cleaner (it's imported from Thailand). She got it from INA market - shop's called Gogia's. It's on the main road, right opposite of Dilli Haat. Do you know where I am talking about?
