Answer by average_american_superhero
I do not know if drs will actually state this or not, but some books state that if you wash them in a dishwasher the water is hot enough that you do not need to worry about it. Now that we have one that is all we do, and before we had one I just washed them in very hot water.

SANITIZING BABY BOTTLES? http://birthpolicy.org/294/sanitizing-baby-bottles/ http://birthpolicy.org/294/sanitizing-baby-bottles/#comments Fri, 29 Oct 2010 07:54:36 +0000 admin http://birthpolicy.org/294/sanitizing-baby-bottles/ Question by Lillians Mommy:
Sanitizing Baby Bottles?

So for some unknown reason our hot water is not working today. We have enough bottles to last us a day before we have to wash them again. I usually wash them in hot soapy water but since it’s not hot should I cleanse them? I quit doing it when she was 3 months old.
I know how to sterilize. We have a steam sterilizer but I just want to know if I should do it since our hot water is not working. This once. I do not need to do it daily, I stopped doing that at 3 months.

Answer by Jelliver
Yes, ideal to boil them in water in a saucepan for a minute or so.

I have a steam steriliser that I still use even though my son’s 7 and a half months old. I think I will stop when he is 9 months (moving country, will not be taking it with me).

WHAT WATER’S BEST IN INFANT FORMULA? http://birthpolicy.org/83/what-waters-best-in-infant-formula/ http://birthpolicy.org/83/what-waters-best-in-infant-formula/#comments Fri, 20 Aug 2010 08:35:30 +0000 admin http://birthpolicy.org/83/what-waters-best-in-infant-formula/ Question by Beautiful B:
What water’s ideal in infant formula?

I’ve been giving my four month old nursery water for about a month now and i just decided that i needed to do some on-line research on it and found out that because it contains fluoride, its not good for babies!!!!! damn i wish someone would have told me that a month ago. I am never giving her that crap again but now I am wondering if plan old bottled water would do or maybe distilled,instead of having to get up in the middle of the night boil water to cleanse it,wait for it to cool..blah blah by then i have a screaming baby on my hands! does anyone know if bottled water would work just as well? please just honest serious answers only..thanks.

………concerned first time mommy.

thank u all, i think i will try giving her bottled water or boiling enough to make more then one bottle as i am no longer comfortable with nursery water..u all were very helpful.

I personally think using bottled water is just fine, that is what I used with my babies, with no problems.
