Sterilising dummies and bottles

Dear Doc

I have heard conflicting views. Please advise?

When is it appropriate to stop sterilising a baby' s dummies and bottles?

Thank you.

Always the subject of a lot of conflicting advice, but usually after 6 months it is no longer necessary to sterilise your baby's teats and dummies.
