    I imagine cold water steralising or boiling would be a complete PITA.

    With Liam we started out with an electric steam steraliser but where we were living it somehow made the electric cut out all the time. So I bought a microwave steraliser and have never had any problems with it.

    This time I hope to breastfeed but will need to work on also getting LO to take a bottle because I have a 3 hour exam in April. I need to check that all the parts off my pump can go in the microwave, if not I'll steam it when needed.

    I found the microwave one more convenient for space because when not in use it hides inside the microwave.

    ive gone for a milton cold water steriliser. Just sounds so much easier.... change the water every 24 hours, pop a tablet in and your ready to go. things are sterilised within 15 mins after putting them in the solution but can be left in the water up until u need them, they dont need rinsed either when you take them out the water. x

    i used a cold water one with my son, from around 3 months after faffing around with an electric and then a microwave one. It was just so much easier for us!

    I had a microwave steriliser with my son and found it very easy to use. This time I've brought the tommee tippee electric one x
