    Just wondering when you stop sterilising baby bowls and spoons?

    My little boy is 24wks old and had been weaning for several weeks now. I was just wondering how much longer I need to keep sterilising his bowls and spoons?

    When do I stop sterilising his baby bottles too?

    Spoons and bowls you don't have to sterilise, but if you do sterilise them you can stop at 6 months. Bottles should be sterilised whilst still using formula up to a year old xxx

    I stopped sterilising everything at 6 months, I figured he was putting toys etc in his mouth and crawling around a floor so it was pointless sterilising.

    He officially turns 6 months tomorrow so going to stop sterilising them then. As you say he puts everything straight into his mouth now anyway. He loves sucking on his feet at the moment, and God knows what germs his socks and shoes pick up during the day.
