Question by KJ:
I have a newborn which i bottle feed. When should i purchase new nipples for bottles?

Also, is there anything that i can do about baby acne? She has a couple of bumps on her tiny nose. Thanks

Answer by mary m
i would not purchase new nipples until the baby gets teeth and all you can do is keep baby’s face clean shes getting her sweat glands in now

How did you know when to switch you infant’s bottle nipples from level 1 to level 2?

Did you do it exactly at 3 months or were there signs that you knew to change?

Answer by littlemommyd
I kept my baby’s nipples at 1 the whole time – they work more like a breast, they have to work to get the milk out. Because I was also breastfeeding, I wanted it to be the same as possible. I do not think it’s such a huge deal when to change.

When to stop sterlizing baby plastic bottles, nipples, and rings.?

I have been using Avent IQ24 steamer to sterlize my baby plastic/glass bottles, nipples and rings. I am worried the nipples and rings will leak out the chemical. I was wondering if I need to sterlize each time I use them or just the first time. After that, can I just wish the with hot water will do. Any suggestions.

Answer by momtojullex
Sterilizing is not necessary. Hot soapy water will do the trick.
