Baby Washing Hands

 

After exposure to any illness, remember to sterilize pacifiers/bottles and clean all toys that child has come in contact with.

 

 

 

  • Sterilizing: Place bottles in a pot filled with water and boil for 5 to 10 minutes. Remove with tongs and place on dish rack or towel to air dry.
  • Cleaning: Scrub with soap and warm water. Anti-bacterial soap is not necessary, regular dish soap is fine.
  • Sanitizing: Be sure area is cleaned first. Then apply non-toxic sanitizing solution. You can make your own solution by adding 1 tablespoon bleach into 1 quart of water.
    • Toys (without batteries), bottles, and pacifiers can also be safely sanitized in the dishwasher using hot water.
