Created by Updated on Jun 02, 2016
I am Mrs. Gopa Mondal ,my baby girl is 9+month old. From the beginning i boiled all feeding bottles in to water and now she started eating rice so all utensils also i boil in d boiling water.. Now few parents i know, they sujjesting that do not boil utensils anymore in the water be coz baby has to be habituated with the normal routine life that we lead... so my questions is ,only cleaning with detergent is safe for 9+ baby and my water filter is Aquagrd ro+uv category, do i need to boil the drinking water from the filter for my baby ..? thats all ...

I too have a 9 month old. Once he started crawling I stopped sterilizing his bottles as he is all over the place. It is important that the baby builds up immunity. I don't use any special dishwash for baby dishes. Just that they are washed separately and not with our dishes.

My paediatrician recommends that utensils through which milk is fed be sterilized till 1 year as the bacteria which develops from milk is a rather harmful one for the baby. So I sterilize milk utensils; while other utensils I wash with boiling water before feeding, which is a regular practice at our home.

My pedc has suggested to sterlize any milk bottles nappies, bottle top cover, spoon to sterlize till is 12month. steel utensils washed separately. I tried to maintain complete set of steel utensils (basic utensils) for my son and normal liquid dishwasher to wash separately.

Definitely doctors have different opinions in different countries! Here in Johannesburg,South Africa, they don't go overboard with stuff. Also depends on the level of pollution. We have no water filters here... we drink water from the tap. Which is unthinkable in India. I guess it's similar with sterilizing and all. I never reuse a used bottle or teat without washing with hot water and soap apart from that I don't stress.
