Health Tip: Washing Baby Bottles

Suggestions to protect your infant

(HealthDay News) -- Your baby is already at heightened risk of infection, so why compound the problem with poorly-washed bottles?

The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics recommends:

  • Place bottles, caps, nipples and related supplies in a clean sink filled with hot, soapy water.
  • Use a bottle brush to thoroughly wash the inside and outside of each bottle, then rinse under running water.
  • Wash the nipples and rings with a nipple brush, and make sure to squeeze the hot, soapy water through the nipples to wash away trapped milk. Rinse under running water.
  • Remove other bottle accessories using sanitized tongs, rinse them well and let them dry in a dish drainer.
