    That's what my health visitor said to do, but I don't think you need a lid as long as whatever you're sterilising is under the water.

    Make sure you dilute the sterilising fuid with the right ratio of water otherwise it could be too strong and harm baby. In it's undiluted state, sterilising fluid is like bleach....be careful to read the instructions and measure out the right amount of water and fluid.

    It takes 15 minutes for something to be sterilised in sterilising fluid. I also bought a steam steriliser at Boots which does a great job.

    15ml is 3 Calpol spoons if that helps:rofl:. It's usually measured in the cap....look inside the cap to see if there's a measure guide line thingy inside it:hugs:
