Question about these bottles. The reason I registered for them was because of all the good things I heard about them but I have a cleaning question for them.

Can you sterilize the whole bottle, internal parts and all? In just any sterilizer? Or should hand wash the intrernal parts but if you do that might as well wash everything else and get rid of the sterilizer. Or can I just put bottle and all parts in the dishwasher on the sanitize setting?

Help!!

I used one for 2 days and threw it out. WAY TOO MUCH HASSLE!!!!!!!! I use the Playtex Drop-ins and they are great!!! I push the air out and Preston has not been gassy, fussy, had belly aches or spit -up. They are great. Of course this is all IMO. Maybe you can read the *bottle review sticky*.

I LOVE THESE BOTTLES!!! They are great for Leo since he has a hard time latching on to the bigger bottle nipples. According to the package insert, oyu only need to sterilize the nipples initially. Everything else you just wash in warm, soapy water..

Its not so much hassle, I dont think. Every evening I wash and prepare formula for the following day. Of course I never minded doing dishes, so that helps!

So really I can put the nipples in the dishwasher on sanitize for the first time and just wash them and everything else in warm soapy water and return the sterilizers is what your telling me.

I guess so - I dont have a dishwasher so I have to just boil anything that needs to be sterilised. BUt yea, according to the package insert, that is all you need to do!

I love Dr.Browns some say they are a pain to clean but its really only the tube inside that is extra to clean. My DD has reflux and gets cereal in her bottles so we use the Y-cut nipple out of every bottle these is and believe me we have them all these were the only ones that she could get her formula out of. She has really done well with these she was a preemie and had a terrible sucking reflux and Dr.Browns saved my life.

Mia uses Dr. Brown bottles at home and at daycare. At daycare, they wash them in the dishwasher on the sanitize setting. At home, we always just wash them in hot soapy water. They come with this little brush so you can clean the tube and the rubbery thing (it's got some holes that I clean out with the brush). They are a little bit more hassle than a regular bottle, but they help with belly aches, so it seems worth it to me. My nephew had colic pretty bad. He was switched to Dr. Brown's and doesn't have anymore trouble with it. Good luck!
