Is It Possible To Wipe Off Any Remaining Steam In A Sterile Baby Bottle?
My doctor wants to ask, every time I sterile a bottle of milk using a sterile device even though it has been drained, he still has a lot of residual steam / sterile water that sticks to either the bottle of milk or didot, then I always wipe with a tissue. read some articles that say there is no need to be wiped because the residual steam is sterile no problem if mixed with breast milk / milk if wiped with tissue, it is feared that the tissue even contains bacteria. But the other article said that it should be wiped with tissue … jD the one who sbner, yes, please explain.
Hello Novi, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Sterilization of milk bottles using any sterilizer can indeed lead to the formation of steam in the bottle or pacifier section of the baby bottle due to the use of high temperatures during the sterilization process.
Because this is reasonable and the steam produced is considered sterile, then the steam does not need to be cleaned using a tissue or a special cloth, because cleaning using a tissue or cloth can cause the bottle and pacifier to become non-sterile again because the new tissue does not guarantee that the tissue is free of bacteria which can cause illness in your child when using the bottle.
Therefore, henceforth, it doesn't matter if you don't wipe the bottle and pacifier again and immediately use the sterilized bottle even though the steam is mixed with the milk your child will consume.
I hope this helps.
