Q:

How to clean baby's bottle and utensils.  Do we need to sterilize bottle after every use.  Is it preferable to give baby food in bottle or with spoon. Too confused.  And what kind of utensils and spoon to use for baby.



Sonia Gupta

yes we need to sterilize utensils whichever we use for baby..easiest way is take a big vessel boil water in it..put prewashed bowl spoon bottle..in boiling water for arnd 20 mins and then use..alternatively you can buy a sterilizer..

hi snigdha, when giving express or formula milk , moms use bottles for feeding , after and before every feed please clean the bottle from liquid soap and sterilze it, u can clean with brush in 2-3 days, but sterlization is must of bottle after every feed. baby food should be given with spoon in bowl, u can use bpa free plastic utensils that are availabke in market of good brands, or i would suggest best are silver utensils as its safe and best for baby. all baby utensils needs to be cleaned with liquid soap and sterlize thoroughly. u can use steal equipments also.

Hi Snigdha..yes we need sterilize bottle....yes would be gud if you use spoon... please clear bottle after baby drink milk...wash bottle with liquid soap and  brush...after washing put bottle on boil water for 15to20min..then used it....if you not used it keep bottle in refrigerator..

hi snigdha, i used to use a big steel ka pateela and boil all baby's steel vessels inside. also bottle. u must clean bottle wth brush every time and sterlise also. pls use liquid soap for baby's dishes. have a pair of steel tongs (chimta) to take out sterlised bowls etc from big vessel.

hi snigdha. very well advised by all. but to be honest with you I was never too finicky with sterilizing.I never used a bottle for my daughter. I would once wash her bowl, spoon and glass with clean water and let it dry on top of a heated plate so that it dries up before her meal times. I use silver ware for her. But steel will be just fine I am sure. Just make sure they have no sharp edges. I use our normal dish soap to clean her utensils. Just make sure you wash the utensils very well to remove traces of any soap. Hope this helps :) Tc!

I used to sterlize bottles after every feed after washing it with pigeon bottle cleaner foam..for eatables I was using silver bowl and spoon till one year and used to wash it with normal utensil cleaner and after 1 year switched to normal steel utensils.
