Rachel was about the same as Holly 13months before the first one , she has 8 now but seems to have stopped cutting them as she's had the 8 for a couple of months now . Yes I stopped sterilising at about a year, once she was on the floor more, as Rilly says onec they're puting everything in their mouths . Rachel only has one bottle of milk last thing before bed & I just shove bottle & teat in the dishwasher .
Hi, George got his first tooth when he was 11 months then didn;t get another one for about 3 months. I stopped sterilising his bottles and dummies when he turned 1 year old and never sterilized bowls or spoons etc (was that bad?)xxxx
Hiya Michelle, Jasmine got her first tooth last week.... yey! She was 11 months. Also, I'm not sterilising anymore although I do rinse her bottles with boiling water after washing them but mainly to get rid of any soap residue. If you have a dish washer that sterlises them anyway but the teats go off colour.
Ok thanks all. I have now stopped sterilising bottles, bowls etc but am too scared to stop sterilising teats and spoons lol. She still has medicine syringes so i am sterilising them anyway. I think the 2 bad bouts of gastro enteritis in Feb and April have made me ultra cautious!
