It is important to keep your baby's Advent bottles clean and sterile at all times. This will ensure that your baby will not become sick from any bacteria that will grow inside the bottle from leftover milk. There are multiple ways to sterilise bottles. One way is to purchase a microwave steam sterilizer, and Advent sells one wherever their bottles are sold. You can also sterilise your baby's bottles with just common household products.

Instructions

    Microwave Steam Sterilizer

  1. 1

    Purchase an Advent Steam Sterilizer from any store where Advent bottles are sold.

  2. 2

    Fill the base with water according to the packaging instructions.

  3. 3

    Place bottles into the sterilizer. The sterilizer will hold up to six 266ml bottles with the nipples.

  4. 4

    Place the lid of the sterilizer onto the base and then put it into the microwave for four to six minutes.

  5. 5

    Remove the sterilizer from the microwave and allow it to sit for an hour. This will give the sterilizer time to cool off and for the bottles to drip dry. Finish drying the bottles after you have removed them from the sterilizer using a clean hand towel, or simply allow them to air dry.

    Sterilise with Bleach

  1. 1

    Fill your sink with hot water and add 2 tablespoons of bleach (1 tablespoon per gallon).

  2. 2

    Place the bottles in the water and allow them to soak for two minutes.

  3. 3

    Add 1 tablespoon of dishwashing soap to the hot water after the bottles have soaked.

  4. 4

    Using a bottle scrub brush, thoroughly clean the bottles and nipples. Rinse well with warm water.

  5. 5

    Allow the bottles and nipples to air dry completely.
