New mum Binky Felstead sparks debate over whether you should sterilise a baby’s bottle

Binky Felstead has sparked a debate over whether you should sterilise a baby’s bottle before using it or just put it through the dishwasher.

The mother-of-two welcomed her son Wolfie in June and on Monday prepared for her first foreign holiday with her new arrival, daughter India, four, and husband Max Darnton. 

Taking to Instagram she shared sweet snaps of the family boarding the plane as she explained how they had surprised India with the trip – prompting several in the comments to ask for her advice on travelling with children.

One wrote in the comments: ‘I’d love to know how you packed for a baby? We want to go away with our baby but have no idea what to do about packing for him…Things like sterilisers, bottles, pram set etc?’

Binky then replied directly to the woman, saying: ‘I personally don’t sterilise anymore as feel the dishwasher does the trick! But ovs lots of bottles, muslins, sun hat, cream, nappies & I packed a few little summer rompers but to be honest it’s so hot he’s just in nappies most of the time!! So really simple!!’

NHS guidance on sterilisation states dishwashers will clean feeding equipment but not sterilise it. 

The comment over sterilising then sparked a debate under the post with one writing: ‘Milton tablets are excellent for sterilising and super small to pack. All you need is a large bowl or bucket where you are staying (should sterilise bottles until you stop using formula).’

Another wrote in response to the suggestion of using Milton tablets: ‘Really great advice esp about continuing to sterilise bottles.’

A third penned: ‘The dishwasher will clean but doesn’t sterilise. Little ones tummy’s are so sensitive to bacteria and upset you should sterilise until 12 months. The dishwasher doesn’t reach high enough temperatures to sterilise.’  

Debate: Under her holiday post Binky was asked for advice on travelling with children to which she responded that she uses a dishwasher instead of sterilising Wolfie's bottles

NHS guidance on sterilising baby bottles

It’s important to sterilise all your baby’s feeding equipment, including bottles and teats, until they are at least 12 months old.

This will protect your baby against infections, in particular diarrhoea and vomiting.

Before sterilising, you need to: 

  • Clean bottles, teats and other feeding equipment in hot, soapy water as soon as possible after feeds.
  • Use a clean bottle brush to clean bottles (only use this brush for cleaning bottles), and a small teat brush to clean the inside of teats. You can also turn teats inside out then wash them in hot soapy water. Do not use salt to clean teats, as this can be dangerous for your baby.
  • You can put your baby’s feeding equipment in the dishwasher to clean it if you prefer. Putting feeding equipment through the dishwasher will clean it but it does not sterilise it. Make sure bottles, lids and teats are facing downwards. You may prefer to wash teats separately by hand to make sure they are completely clean.
  • Rinse all your equipment in clean, cold running water before sterilising.

The advice above applies to all your baby’s feeding equipment, and whether you are using expressed breast milk or formula milk.

Binky explained in the caption about preparing for her trip, penning: ‘FAMILY VAY- KAY • ☀️

‘When I was about India’s age my parents packed my bags in the car whilst I was asleep & when they woke me up in the morning they told me we were going to drop daddy off at the airport for one of his usual business trips!

‘It wasn’t until I was actually on the plane that they had to tell me it was actually a holiday we were going on.. and I still remember how excited I was!!

‘So … Max & I told India the day before we left that we were going to pack her bag & pretend we were going to go on a holiday. We packed the car when she was sleeping. In the morning we woke up the kids, put them in the car & told India we were going to take her to the park.

‘We got to the airport, put her on the luggage trolley & she had the biggest smile on her face ( clearly brighter than I was) … we told her it wasn’t actually a pretend holiday and that we were going on a airplane & she let out the biggest squeal and skipped through the airport saying ‘ hi! ‘ to everyone.

‘Needless to say travelling with two compared to one is slightly different … at least Wolfie can’t walk yet- much easier! He did sleep most of the way and I made sure he sucked on his dummy (or my finger) to help pop his ears! We had India in the middle between Max & I & Wolfie was on my lap!

‘I actually traveled from London to Bali with India the day after her 2nd Birthday on my own & it was actually okay, just made sure I was super prepared! Advice travelling with kids hasn’t changed from my post I did back then. Make sure there are plenty of snacks, stickers, colouring books & toys! Spread the toys out throughout the flight… and promise ice cream when you land!! ☀️ … oh and think of that G&T! 

… also, this little bag India is on in the last pic is brilliant for plonking them on whilst waiting around for check in & running through airports when late for your flight!’
