    How often should you change your bottle brush if you have one?

    I have mam bottles and a mam rubber bottle brush, how often should you replace it and should you sterilise it!?

    Ive just changed mine after 3 months as it looked a bit tired and the bristles were worn..
    Ive never steralised it though. Theres no point. I do soak it in hot hoapy water once a week though. X

    Why do you need to sterilise if you then go on to sterilise the bottles?!

    How do you cold sterilize it? (for the fact that every so often we forget to sterilize a bottle)

    All I know was the instruction with my Avent brush said not to put in boiling water.

    I would sterilize my baby bottle after I use it to clean the baby bottle. Cause I think it can prevent germ growing on the brush.
