Do you sterilize your newborn feeding equipment after each use?
How clean is clean enough? We wash our baby's clothes in special detergents, sanitize their toys with kid-friendly cleaning supplies and try our best to keep their nurseries free from outside germs. When it comes to cleaning baby bottles and pump equipment many mamas opt for a double cleaning – first washing the items in warm soapy water and then sterilizing them in either the dishwasher or special sterilizing machines. According to WebMD current water supplies are cleaner than previous generations experienced, making the sterilization process (after the first use) unnecessary. The American Academy of Family Physicians agrees.
