Health Tip: Cleaning Baby Bottles

(HealthDay News) -- Sterilizing baby bottles between feedings can help kill germs lurking inside.

The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics suggests cleaning baby bottles by:

  • Filling a clean sink with hot, soapy water.

  • Putting all bottles -- including nipples, rings and caps -- into the soapy water.

  • Clean the inside of each bottle using a brush, then rinse away soapy water with fresh water.

  • Use a nipple brush to clean nipples, making sure to squirt soapy water through the nipple.

  • Rinse all bottle parts under clean running water.

  • Use sanitized tongs to touch sanitized bottles and parts. Allow them to dry in a dish drainer.
