Question about bottle sterilizers....
Do I need one?
I registered for one but am now having second thoughts. How often do I even need to sterilize bottles/nipples? Can they go in the dishwasher?
I have no idea what I'm doing here....
Another vote for dishwasher and boil.
.....and skip the wipes warmer, too ;)
Having a preemie, I used it a lot. I have a microwave one.
However, I'll probably use it this time around, too. I never like how plastics come out in the dishwasher and I've heard that handwashing usually doesn't get hot enough.
I also used it to sterilize pump parts. It was pretty handy.

This. If you end up formula feeding then I would just buy enough bottles to get you through 2 days of feedings so you can just run them through the dishwasher. So not worth the hassle in my opinion.
