Health Tip: Cleaning Baby Bottles

Sterilize them to kill germs
(HealthDay News) -- Sterilizing baby bottles between feedings can help kill germs lurking inside.
The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics suggests cleaning baby bottles by:
Filling a clean sink with hot, soapy water. Putting all bottles -- including nipples, rings and caps -- into the soapy water. Clean the inside of each bottle using a brush, then rinse away soapy water with fresh water. Use a nipple brush to clean nipples, making sure to squirt soapy water through the nipple. Rinse all bottle parts under clean running water. Use sanitized tongs to touch sanitized bottles and parts. Allow them to dry in a dish drainer.
