    Sterilize Bottles & Pacifiers

    Hello Friends,

    Baby bottles and pacifiers should be sterilized before their first use, according to the Cleveland Clinic. Bottles and pacifiers do not need be sterilized again if you have a chlorinated water supply, according to Gerber. However, if you use a non-chlorinated source of water, such as well water, you will need to sterilize your baby bottles and pacifiers each time you wash them until a doctor tells you that it is safe to stop doing so. Nevertheless, regardless of water supply issues, baby bottles and pacifiers need to be washed after each use.

    Thanks and Regards

    Re: Sterilize Bottles & Pacifiers

    Hello Members,

    Newborns are not as capable of fighting off germs as older children. Since they are so vulnerable, it is important to implement the proper cleaning and sterilizing of the items, such as bottles and pacifiers, that the go into the mouth. Sterilization involves leaving your items in a temperature that is hot enough to kill germs.

    1. Read the manual for your dishwasher. Clemson Cooperative Extension states that a dishwasher that reaches temperatures of 165 degrees Fahrenheit or hotter will be able to sterilize our bottles and pacifies. If your dishwasher fits this description, just run the bottles and pacifiers through one cycle in the dishwasher.
    2. Fill a pot large enough to hold your bottles and pacifiers with water. Do this if you do not have a dishwasher that reaches temperatures over 165 degrees Fahrenheit.
    3. Set the pot on the stove and turn the heat setting to high. Bring to a boil.
    4. Place the pacifiers in the boiling water. Take your bottles apart and place all of their pieces in the pot of boiling water along with the pacifiers.
    5. Set a wire veggie steamer over the bottles and pacifiers to keep them under the boiling water for a total of five minutes.
    6. Drain the water out of the pot and set the pacifiers and bottle pieces on some paper towels to dry.

    Best Regards,
