When bottle feeding you need a good way of sterilising the bottles so they are safe for baby to use. We've tried a few in the past and personally prefer the electric steam sterilisers, they are super easy to use and do a good job.
We were recently sent the new Tommee Tippee Electric Steam Steriliser to try out. The steriliser can hold up to five Closer To Nature bottles or four Ultra bottles. The cycle takes 5 minutes and once finished the bottles stay sterile inside the steriliser for 24 hours if the lid is kept closed. This makes it really convenient to wash and sterilise the bottles before bed and have them ready for you and baby in the morning. The steriliser just uses water to steam the bottles so there is no worry of additional chemicals and its kills 99.9% of germs.
So how do you use the steriliser?
Once you've washed your bottles in hot, soapy water and rinsed, you then need to take the lid off the steriliser and fill a bottle with 80ml of cold water and pour that into the bottom. Theres a handy little guide on the bottle which makes it super easy to measure out.
After you've done that simply add your bottles upside down to the bottom rack. You then add your teats and lids to the top rack.
Then simply press the on button and wait five minutes for the cycle to complete. I told you it was super simple!
Once finished the bottles are then sterile and ready to use.
The steriliser is super easy to use, works really well and looks nice on the kitchen counter. It isn't huge so doesn't take up a lot of space either. You do need to let the steriliser cool down a little after the cycle has finished but that's the same with any steam steriliser. The steriliser is also BPA and phthalate free.
Have you used the Tommee Tippee Steam Steriliser? We love ours!
