We know that being a mum means looking after your little one's health and happiness, especially in those crucial first 12 months. Your baby's immune system is still developing and finding its footing, so keeping things super clean and sterilised is a top priority.
Now, we all love our trusty dishwasher, but let's be real, it's not always up for the challenge of your baby's precious bottles, teats, and other essentials. That's where baby sterilisers swoop in to save the day – offering a simple and effective solution to keep your baby's feeding gear as clean as a whistle.
There are many benefits to sterilising and several different methods you can use, it's worth noting that ultraviolet light (UV) stands out as one of the best methods for eliminating germs and bacteria. In fact, it's a preferred choice among healthcare professionals. It should therefore come as no surprise that our UV baby bottle sterilisers are highly sought after. They make an excellent addition to your shopping cart when you're organising your baby's feeding essentials in preparation for their arrival.

UV bottle steriliser vs steam steriliser - what’s the difference?
Let's compare the UV bottle steriliser and the steam steriliser, shall we?
Steam Sterilisers: These electronic devices require water to heat up and create steam for the sterilisation process. They're excellent at taking care of feeding accessories but don't venture beyond that.
UV Sterilisers: Now, here's where things get interesting. UV sterilisers use a UV bulb, known for its energy efficiency and low electricity consumption, to eliminate germs. What sets them apart is their versatility – they can sterilise not only bottles but also toys, breast pumps, mobile phones, and other electronic devices.

Top types of baby bottle sterilisers
When it comes to baby bottle sterilisers, there are a few options to choose from, and each has its own unique qualities. Here's a quick look at the main types:
Electric Steam Sterilisers: These little wonders use steam to take care of those pesky bacteria and germs on your baby bottles and feeding gear. They're super convenient, although they need a power source, and can handle several bottles at once.
Microwave Sterilisers: These compact pals rely on steam generated by heating water in your microwave. They're a space-saver and can tidy up a few bottles in one go.
UV Sterilisers: These high-tech buddies harness the power of ultraviolet light to zap away bacteria and germs from your baby bottles and accessories. They come in various sizes, from larger units to travel-friendly ones.
Boiling Water: Sometimes, old-school methods work just fine. Boiling water is a classic way to get the job done. Simply boil your baby bottles and gear in a pot of water for a few minutes, and you're good to go.
Remember, each type has its own pros and cons, so pick the one that fits your lifestyle and needs best.
How long do bottles stay sterile after UV sterilisation?
UV sterilisers are designed to keep baby bottles sterile for up to 24 hours after the sterilisation process is complete, as long as the items remain inside the steriliser. However, once you remove the sterilised baby bottle from the steriliser, they are no longer considered sterile and can become contaminated if not handled properly.
