Sterilization is of the utmost component for a newborn baby’s overall care. Chicco Bottle sterilizer ensures the efficacy of the product and makes sure about the tranquillity of a mother. As it is a well-known fact that the immaturity defense of babies remains low for the first twelve months, ever since sterilization of everyday objects prevents stomach ache, gastrointestinal and oral infections.
Why Use Sterilizer?
This is the product that makes it easier for new moms to have a daily practice of sterilization. The Chicco bottle sterilizer allows you to sanitize the objects which are in contact with the baby. The lid of the Chicco bottle sterilizer is kept close to the objects protected.

Wash the bottles, nipples, nipple cavities, and tops using mild soapy water and rinse thoroughly.

Reviewing the Chicco Bottle Sterilizer
During the early days of my second baby, I stopped the use of Chicco Bottle Sterilizer at the time when he was 5 months old. I used to wash with a baby sterilizer soap and risen with drinking water before use. By the 6 months, I realized to stop using a sterilizer to build my baby’s immune system. Ever since for the 5 months, I breastfed my baby so I didn’t require as many bottles. If you are formula feeding or supplementing, a large sterilizer would probably be helpful in your daily routine.
When the Chicco Bottle Sterilizer is used in compact mode, it fits two small bottles and a pacifier or the components such as a manual hand pump. If we talk about the full-size model of the Chicco Bottle Sterilizer it would fit around six bottles, pacifiers, and pumping gear. I have stopped using it long back but still remembers that it take 10-15 minutes to warm up and sterilize the bottles.
In conclusion, the Chicco Bottle Sterilizer works well enough but you have to be vigilant to avoid limescale and then to manage it.
