Find out if you need to use a steriliser, and which type will work best for you and your baby.
Cold water and microwave steam sterilisers just need washing on a regular basis. An electric steam steriliser needs de-scaling to ensure the element (that’s the bit that heats up the water to make steam) is free of mineral deposits (lime scale) and can reach a high enough temperature. You de-scale your electric model by using citric acid or white vinegar and running a steam cycle.
If you want an option for travelling (and have access to a microwave) then microwave steriliser bags provide a perfect solution
