We aren't planning on buying a sterilizer as we are planning on BFing so no need, obviously this will change if BFing doesn't work out like last time. B had dummies after a week as he was a comfort sucker and my boobs were so sore I didn't want him on them just for comfort.
We have bought some dummies but am wondering how I can sterilize them without a sterilizer? Boil them in hot water?

Little plastic Tupperware tub with milton in? We had an electric steriliser but always had a tun of milton for dummies in the early days.

Mothercare do a microwave dummy steriliser, great for storing them when you're out as well.www.mothercare.com/.../209972,default,pd.html

I did think Milton in a little tub was the only way to do it. That steriliser would be ideal :)

I'd just do Milton.

My mam ones came in a little plastic box that you can microwave sterilise them in.

We gave a micro sterliser and a tub for Milton that has the dummies and expressing pump parts in it. Everything gets microwaved each night just for double sterilisation and baby hates the taste of Milton anyway.

We've got the mams dummies as well. 3 mins in microwave and you are done although obviously you might not have a mircowave.

We love the little mam cases as they are transportable anywhere I might need them. Otherwise you can get soother Milton wipes in tesco, you can buy a special Milton mini soother steriliser. Or Milton in a tub too. Or yes boiling is fine too, says to boil for first time sterilisation anyway.
