  • I used bottles for my boys, the 2nd and 3rd I used the playtex drop ins and I loved those. I did not do anything special for the bottles, I just ran them thru the dish washer along with the regular dishes and stored them in the cabinet.

  • I just wash them. My kids were all formula fed (we never put juice in bottles, it always went in a cup). My youngest is 10 months. When he finishes a bottle I just toss it in the sink and then put it in the dishwasher with the rest of the dishes and run it through a wash/dry cycle. End of story. They are always clean when they come out.
    With the 4th kid we didn't have a dishwasher so I washed them by hand. I usually rinsed them after use and left them in the sink until I did dishes in the morning and then used a bottle brush and hot, soapy water.

  • Rinse them out directly after use. If you do that it won't give a chance for juice to say in it to make it a mess.
