When I had to introduce bottles, I found it easier and reassuring to have a sterilizer.  I tried the disposable bags that go in the microwave and found them to be the most convenient.  You can resuse them a few times (there’s actually a place to mark the bags with a Sharpie) and then toss them and it’s much less stuff on the counter.  My friend prefered the Avent sterlizer.  I don’t like boiling on the stove top because of the film left on the surface afterward.

If your dishwasher has a “sanitize” option, you can just use that.

@MARIE901:  If you plan to use the dishwasher, you’ll probably need one of those kiddie dishwasher baskets. It helps keep the nipples and pacifiers (if you use one) from flying all over the place, and it’s also nice later for teeny spoons 🙂 I have a friend who regularly throws the carseat toys in it as well, they’re great for cleaning all of the tiny objects you collect!

I was reading in Dr. Sears book that sterilizers are really only needed for pre-term infants…and for a limited time frame.


I would check with your pediatrician to see what they say!
