Sterilising 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.
•    Cleaning the inside of each bottle using a brush, then rinsing away soapy water with fresh water.
•    Using a nipple brush to clean nipples, making sure to squirt soapy water through the nipple.
•    Rinsing all bottle parts under clean running water.
•    Using sanitized tongs to touch sanitised bottles and parts, and allowing them to dry in a dish drainer.
