hi all MTBs,
if anyone is experienced in this, i would be most grateful for your help!! I've been reading and reading and I think i'm getting quite confused over the range of baby products and their compatability with each other. I'm due in May 2012 so trying to buy my stuff early before I feel like a whale.
I bought a breastpump from Medela - model PISA (Pump in style advance) which comes with a few bottles and also Philips Avent bottle newborn starter pack.
I'm now looking for a sterilizer, maybe a bottle warmer and some breast milk storage containers.
My question is, if i buy the Philips Avent Sterilizer - does it work with my Medela pumps/bottles?? Same goes for the warmer - can my medela bottle fit into the warmer? I almost bought the Philips Avent storage container (which can be used as food jar later) but i read that it's compatible for use with Philips breast pump so there's no need for you to pour from one source to another.
I hope someone understands where i'm getting at.
Lastly is a bottle drying rack really necessary? I have those big drying rack for dishes at home (2 levels built-in the cupboard) - can i just use that instead of buying a rack?
anyone? pls help
i had been using almost the full range of Philips Avent products like the single electronic breast pump, the sterilizer , breast milk storage containers and milk bottles.
The breast milk containers can just use it to direct bottle feed your baby right after express out breast milk, just remove the breast pump body and add the screw ring with teat. Save your trouble by pouring the expressed breast milk into milk bottle and can be use to store foods like biscuit for baby. But since you had already brought the breast pump from Medela, just use the containers to store breast milk as it can be wash and reuse again.
The sterilizer think can use for other brand bottle, just the sterilizer basket with hole that might not fit well apart for Avent.
I have try putting Nuk bottle to sterilise, ok but Nuk bottle are smaller then Avent.
My sister In law pass me her Pigeon warmer which i hardly use as i've been breast feeding most of the time , but it can fit Avent bottle.
I did not get any bottle drying rack cos right after washing all the items, i'll sterilise them.
After sterilise and cooling down the bottle and breast pump body, i'll dry all the items with a clean cloth that will not deposit any loose fibre and store it in a big plastic tupperware container, so every items will be clean and ready for use.
Hope i have help you out a bit, take good care
Im currently using medela freestyle pump , avent sterliser and avent warmer. Yes, the avent sterliser and warmer fit the medela bottle and pump parts. I used the avent sterliser to sterlise my pump accessories.
