Getting Baby Bottles Absolutely Spotless

Gather the Basic Cleaning Supplies

Prepare basics such as hot water, a good brush for the bottles and nipples and dish washing liquid. A good bottle brush helps you to clean the sides and bottom of the bottle. You can also use a gentle nipple brush to clean the rubber nipple which can easily accumulate bacteria. The dish washing liquid should be a non toxic and gentle liquid that is specifically designed for baby bottles and does not leave any residue.

Wash the Baby Bottle Right After Use

Water, sugar and warmth provide the ideal conditions for germs to thrive. Therefore, it is advisable to wash the baby bottle right after use in order to prevent caking of the milk and the creation of a foul odor which is very difficult to get rid of, especially if you are using plastic bottles. Start off by pouring the leftover milk and rinse the bottles with hot water. Brush the baby bottle in and out using a gentle baby brush in order to avoid scraping off the plastic. Move the baby bottle brush along the edges in order to remove the filmy milk residue.

Allow the Baby Bottles to Dry Thoroughly

Rinse all the bottle parts in hot running water to remove the soapy residue and bubbles. Place all the parts on a drying rack and make sure they are left to drain and dry thoroughly in a well ventilated location. Bottles can grow fungus and mold if they remain damp for too long.

Proper sanitation of baby feeding accessories is the best way to ensure that bottle feeding is as safe and germ free as breastfeeding.
