Is a UV Sterilizer safe for your baby?
During their first 12 months, a baby’s immune system is still developing which means they could be at an increased risk of developing infections from common germs and bacteria. Whether you’ve chosen to bottle feed or breastfeed your baby, sterilising all feeding accessories will ensure they aren’t exposed to any nasties early on.
When it comes to sterilisation, there are many different ways to eliminate germs and bacteria from your baby’s feeding accessories. From UV light, steam, boiling water, or chemical disinfectant - all methods are effective at killing germs and bacteria.
Why UV for sterilising baby products?
UV light (aka ultraviolet light) uses technology that kills all germs and bacteria quicker and more effectively than traditional methods. UV light requires very low energy, is cheap to run and not dangerous to humans (especially your little humans).
So what are the benefits of using UV light for sterilising?
1. The professionals did it first!
UV light is commonly used amongst healthcare professionals such as dentists, doctors and surgeons. It’s easy to use and kills environmental bacteria rather than simply reducing the number
2. It’s safe and non-toxic
There is no use of harsh chemicals or extreme heat which can be a hazard, especially with little ones running around. UV light is environmentally friendly, human friendly and so easy to use.
3. UV Kills!
Kills bacteria that is...UV light physically eliminates germs and bacteria from the site meaning there is no chance for bacteria to grow back or build an immunity to it like some chemical disinfectants.
4. Show me the money
Not only is UV safe for household use, but it’s safe on the wallet too. UV sterilisers are actually much more affordable than you might think. For instance, one full cycle with the New Beginnings 2-in-1 Steriliser and Dryer is 53 minutes. This equates to 21 years of use if you use it once a day! Not only this, but they require very little power to run, so your energy bill is also safe.
