    I intend to buy the MAM self-sterilising anti-colic bottles. They're self-sterilising in the microwave, so no need to buy a seperate steriliser.

    However, my Mum said I'll still need a steriliser for other bits & bobs. Will I..??

    On the Avent steam steriliser box it shows that you can use the trays it comes with to put teats & things in the dishwasher. So if that's the case, I can self-sterilise the bottles & use the dishwasher for the little bits, without the need for a steriliser..?

    Help! I'm confused!!

    a dishwasher doesnt sterilise though just cleans really well. if you dont want to buy a steriliser you can always boil sterilise in a pan on the cooker instead but its much easier with a proper steriliser.

    ive never head of self-sterilising bottles. i bought the mothercare electric steam steriliser and that did me for both my kids!

    i wouldnt rely on the bottles, you might find your baby will be fussy wont take to the teats! we have some MAM because its a great idea in theory, but i couldnt rely on them soley

    I think your mum means dummies, teats etc. If the bottles self sterilise then why not get a cheap avent microwave steriliser, you can just throw everything in there and leave it until you need it (within 24 hours) xxx
