    My hv told me the other day that you need to sterilise all bottles while you use formula as the milk breeds bacteria like crazy

    Im wondering about this too. With my first you stopped sterilising & making formula at 6 m/o - LO's went straight to cows milk back in those days (7yrs ago) now i've heard they've changed it so you cant give cows milk til 1 yr & you need to keep sterilising til you stop formula - as others said, coz of the bacteria.

    :roll:

    Hmmm - I'm asking because the other day I had to give her an unsterilised bottle (car broke down in the middle of nowhere) and luckily we had washed it out well but it wasn't sterile. She will take her milk cold and she seemed fine after! I mean, a few times if her dummy has fallen I just give it a wee rinse (or a wee sook if icant rinse it) and give her it back. She never been I'll from it, was just wondering about bottles too! I'll prob keep sterilising until a year or until she stops bottles I think x

    I've done the same with the dummy's and bottles like when I stayed in my hotel for a friends wedding and had to just use boiled water and washing up liquid. I think I may stop sterilising in feb and we go away again for 3 days an only have a kettle in our hotel room so may try and see how he gets on x
