Sterilizing Baby Bottles??

I have never sterlizied baby bottles before and I was wondering if I am supposed to sterilize them right before I use them or if I can sterilize them ahead of time and put them in the cabinet, My baby is due in 4 weeks and I want to pack her diaper bag now, so I was wondering if I sterilize them now if they will be okay until she gets here.

  • Yes, they should be fine to sterilize now. Also, I had to sterilize a lot because my daughter had thrush... they have this wonderful microwave sterilizer that works great! It saves a ton of time cause it's such a pain to wait for the water to boil, then stand there while the stuff is in there. Good luck with your new baby!
