How to sterilize feeding bottles
Children are born almost defenseless before the diversity of microbes and bacteria that exist in the world around them. And, first of all, it is necessary to protect the child from dangers that penetrate the body together with food. Therefore, all parents should know how to sterilize bottles for newborns.
Some mothers still believe that children’s dishes need to be processed after each feeding. This is not true. Immunity of the child develops gradually. And he needs a certain level of hostile microorganisms to learn how to defend himself against them. Therefore, the constant sterilization of bottles and toys will only lead to a weakening of immunity developing in a vacuum.
Nevertheless, it is worth considering that milk and mixtures are an ideal nutrient medium for the development of pathogenic microbes. Therefore, periodic sterilization is necessary to simply not poison your own child. This is especially important in the following cases:
- After buying a bottle. It is completely unknown where and how it was produced, as it was stored before acquisition. Not the fact that it will be possible to wash everything with water. Therefore, sterilization is a completely natural security measure.
- After strong contamination of the bottle. After the baby starts walking and crawling, his dishes can be anywhere: in the dust under the sofa, in the dirt on the street, in the paws of a pet. At the same time, the bottle is sometimes found not at once, giving the bacteria time to live in a new dwelling.
- With prolonged use. Regular cleaning of the bottle with detergents helps to remove food debris, but over time, some of the impurities are absorbed into the plastic. For their complete removal of water and soap is not enough. It is desirable to periodically sterilize baby dishes.
- During and after the illness of the child. This will help to avoid re-infection of the baby with an infection.
