    i sterlize first then use the dishwasher to wash them and they get sterilized in there. i would simply because it's not difficult to do and it's better to be safe than sorry

    TBH I don't think there's any point once they start crawling, bit silly to be sterilising bottles when bubs is going around the floor on their hands! LOL.

    sterilise milk bottles as they r the breeding ground 4 bacteria so do streilise til 12 months. other stuff like bowls and spoons and juice cups r ok 2 not b sterilised. oh and if u use dummies they r a source of throat infections so i'd sterilise them 2.
