FAQ About Baby Bottles
Baby bottles should be sterilized after each use. This is the only way to ensure that your baby does not come into contact with germs and bacteria.
You should leave the bottles and other accessories in boiling water for at least 10 minutes to kill all germs and bacteria. Alternatively, sterilizers are an option. They disinfect within 5 minutes and are therefore particularly suitable if you have few bottles to hand.
At least 6 to 7 baby bottles are recommended. Since newborns eat frequently during the day and baby bottles need to be sterilized after each use, a large number of bottles is necessary.
If you use a sterilizer to sterilize your baby bottles, they will remain sterile unopened for up to 24h.
At best, you clean your baby bottles with a sterilizer. There is also the possibility to boil the bottles or put them in the dishwasher, but you run the risk of not completely disinfecting the bottles.
Baby bottles should be disinfected until the oral phase. This is when the child begins to put everything in its mouth anyway, thus introducing many germs and bacteria. It would therefore be superfluous to sterilize the bottles.
