Reason of Sterilizing and Cleaning Babies Feeding Bottle
During the first year of your baby's life, he's at his most vulnerable to illnesses. If you don't sterilize your baby's bottles, viruses, bacteria and parasites can gather on his bottle and in his milk and make him ill.
Your baby could develop anything from mild thrush to a more serious bout of vomiting and diarrhoea.It's not possible or practical to create a totally germ-free environment for your baby. But by sterilising your baby's feeding equipment, you can reduce the risks while he's at his most vulnerable.
Before you sterilise, you'll need to clean the
used bottles thoroughly. Wash the bottles, along with the teats,
retaining rings and caps, so that every trace of milk is removed.
need to make a feed, clean and disinfect the work surface you're going
to use. Then wash and dry your hands. Take a sterilized bottle from the
sterilizer and put it on the clean surface. Use sterilized tongs to
place the teat, lid, retaining ring and cap out ready, preferably on the
upturned lid of the steriliser (DH 2009).
By the time your baby is one year old he'll have started to produce his own antibodies and be more resistant to harmful germs. However, it's a good idea to carry on sterilising bottles, dummies and teats until your baby stops using them.
