amb04006:I only sterilized them before the first use. Now I just use Dawn and water after each use, and I'll sometimes throw them in the dishwasher if I have room.
It was suggested by my pedi to sterilize bottles after every use. I have a microwave sterilizer, so it's not a pain to sterilize the bottles.
But if you are only going through a couple of bottles a week, you can just boil the bottles and nipples for two minutes.
emriley84:I BF so I didn't want a sterilizer that would sit around and be used occasionally, I've been using the microwave steam bags. They take up no space and can be reused up to 20 times.
this. It is so quick and easy!
This exactly. Also, I have those Medela microwave steam/sterilizing breast pump bags and once in a while I toss a load of bottles in there. Little guy probably only gets 1-2 bottles per day (DH feeds him once, and then he has one feed where we put vitamin d in the bottle), but I am pumping quite a bit to build up a stash for when I go back to work, so we have lots of dirty bottles!
