Does anyone use a bottle sterilizer?

i'm just wondering if anyone uses this or thinks it is just a waste of money...

  • I used one. My doctor recommended it because my baby had a raging case of thrush that wouldn't go away. I used the Dr. Brown's microwavable sterilizer. I think they only go with Dr. Brown bottles though. I really liked it. Now that the thrush is gone, I just run his bottles through the dishwasher once or twice a week to sterilize them.

  • I did not. I did however boil water and pour it all over the nipples before I washed them for the 1st time to sterilize them. I washed the bottles like normal, with hot water, dish soap and a bottle brush. Sometimes I put everything in the dishwasher and just extra rinsed the nipples by hand.
