If you are planning for the arrival of a little bundle of joy anytime soon then I recommend investing in the Milton Cold Water Steriliser. When the initial adrenaline and hormones wear off after birth and the sleepless night start to kick in, you will really appreciate how easy and efficient the Milton Cold Water Steriliser is. I found it really easy to fit sterilising into our routine with the Milton Cold Water Steriliser. I would empty the sterlisier water at night so that it was ready to be re filled fresh the next day. I would wake up in the morning and wash up all the bottles from the night before then fill the steriliser with water, pop the tablet in, wait for it to disperse and then pop all the bottle pieces into the steriliser. Then after the day feeds I would wash the bottles straight up and sterilise. I would empty the steriliser before bed so that it was ready again for the next day. Due to allergies George stayed on formula until 18 months of age and I used the Milton Cold Water Steriliser from birth to 18 months daily. It was always so handy to have a bucket of sterile water on the side all day as any dummies that fell onto the floor could just be popped in and ready to go again in just 15 minutes time. Once George was teething it was handy to have the sterile water ready for any teethers that dropped and I also used it to sterilise sippy cups and bowls and spoons once George started weaning (as he had to wean early at just 4 months on pediatrician advice due to severe refulx).
The Milton Cold Water Steriliser is available at Amazon for just £12.79 at time of writing and the Milton sterilising tablets are also available at Amazon for just £3.75. The amazon links are affiliate links and I may make a few pennies from the sale of each item, at no extra cost to you!
How to use the Milton Cold Water Steriliser:
The Milton Cold Water Steriliser is very easy to use. The Milton Cold Water Steriliser has a large 5 litre capacity that can hold up to 6 bottles. It can also be used to sterilise other items as and when needed such as dummy’s, teething rings, plastic toys etc. The Milton Cold Water Steriliser can be used for any bottle on the market – unlike steam sterilisers which tend to only fit certain brands and make it really difficult if you need to change bottle brands (which we actually did need to do with both children – funny how what works for one child doesn’t necessarily work for the next!).
To use the Milton Cold Water Steriliser simply wash the bottles and teats and rings in hot soapy water then rinse in cold water. Fill the Milton Cold Water Steriliser to the 5litre line then either add 1 Milton Sterilising Tablet or 30 ml of Milton Sterilising Fluid. Fully submerge everything into the Steriliser to release any air bubbles. Screw on the integral submerged making sure everything is still fully submerged. Screw on the kid and press the vent down. The items will all be ready to use in just 15 minutes and will stay sterile for up to 24 hours. There is no need to rinse items before use. The solution will stay sterile for 24 hours so if you need to pop anything in during that time you can just submerge it and leave it for 15 minutes. I hope you found these Milton Cold Water Steriliser Instructions useful. It is a really easy to use and quick way of sterilising.
The Milton Cold Water Steriliser is really portable and is great for taking on holiday as it is really lightweight and easy to transport. We were really happy with the Milton Cold Water Steriliser.
Milton also have a handy on the go dummy Steriliser and a 3in1 antibacterial surface spray to help keep your kitchen germ free. I used the 3in1 antibacterial surface spray to spray and wipe down the kitchen sides before using the Milton Cold Water Steriliser.
I have set up a new blog in addition to Happy Mummy which you can find over at Organised By Roo.
