Breast Milk Bottle Sterilization?
Greetings… nDoc would like to ask, nDoes the breast milk storage bottle that is washed with special baby soap need to be sterilized again in boiling water??nnBecause I often wash it with soap and rinse it with warm water… what’s wrong ??
In the process of storing and presenting ASI, of course, the principles of cleanliness and sterility of the equipment must be considered. A clean and sterile tool is very supportive of the baby's digestive health. Unsterilized feeding bottles increase the risk of viral, parasitic, and bacterial infections in the digestive tract.
There are several ways to sterilize breast milk bottles, namely:
Using an electric sterilizer, many are sold in baby supply stores Using the microwave By boiling the bottle you can wash it thoroughly with laundry soap and brush the baby's bottle under running water and preferably with warm water. Sterilization of breast milk bottles is highly recommended until the baby is 1 year old. After the baby is 1 year old, sterilization can be done at certain times, for example when the baby is sick, or if it is feared that the water used for washing is not clean.
