Do you need to sterilize baby bottle? Some believe that sterilization is not required with the current supply of water being treated and sanitized. But many parents still play it safe and sterilize their baby’s feeding bottles. Why?
During the first year of your baby’s life, he’s at his most vulnerable to illnesses. If bottles aren't sterilised, viruses, bacteria, and parasites can gather and make your baby ill. Your baby could develop anything from mild thrush to a more serious bout of vomiting and diarrhoea.
1) In some countries, the water may have been treated but still contain some form of bacteria.
2) Some places, the water source is unknown. For example it may come from a contaminated well.
3) Most tap and well water are not safe for drinking due to heavy industrial and environmental pollution. Toxic bacteria, chemicals and heavy metals routinely penetrate and pollute our natural water sources making people sick while exposing them to long term health consequences such as liver damage, cancer and other serious conditions. We have reached the point where all sources of our drinking water, including municipal water systems, wells, lakes, rivers, and even glaciers, contain some level of contamination. Imagine washing your baby's feeding bottles with this water.

It's not possible or practical to create a totally germ-free environment for your baby. But by sterilising your baby’s feeding equipment, you can help to keep him healthy.
If you are sterilizing your baby’s feeding bottles, having access to a good baby sterilizer is important. The baby's immune system is still developing making them very vulnerable to infection. As a result it is important to take significant precautions to ensure, as far as possible, that they are not exposed to harmful bacteria which could cause illness. One of the most effective ways of protecting your baby is to ensure that all feeding equipments are fully sterile prior to use. By heating water within the sterilization chamber, steam is generated which makes contact with the surfaces of the baby feeding equipment to kill off any harmful bacteria. Traditional methods such as boiling in water do of course still work. However, using a baby sterilizer is much more convenient and easy.
We have been using Tommee Tippee Sterilizer for close to 2 years now. No problems so far and we are very satisfied with it.
