    Only right before you use them as they don't stay sterile long :)

    Just before you use them. It'll probably tell you in your instructions how long they say sterile for once done.

    Yeah don't do it until last minute. I think they only stay sterile for 24 hours and that's only if they stay in the steriliser (I think). If you aren't going to breastfeed, then you could always buy the ready-made pre-sterilised bottles for when you are in hospital. I've bought some. My hospital has sterilisers that we can use x

    Oh I don't know if they'll do them in Iceland but Cow & Gate and SMA do them so I'd imagine you would be able to get them. I'm doing the same. Will try breastfeeding but I don't want to feel left in the deep end like last time when I had a screaming hungry baby at 1am who wouldn't latch on keeping the rest of the hospital awake! x
