Title: All about sterilizers, bottle warmers
Post by: chocoholic88 on March 05, 2014, 07:21:23 am
hi mommies!

May thread na ganito dati but the last post was last 2011 pa. I want to know what brands of sterilizers are good, and kung mas okay ba yung multipurpose - sterilizer/dryer/warmer compared sa sterilizer alone.

Another thing, for breastfeeding mommies, do you still use bottle warmers for your BM or dip lang sa water?

Thanks!

^ hi sis! I've also read about the sesame street naman na sterilizer/dryer. Unlike the looney tunes brand na naka set na yung drying time (medyo matagal daw nasa 45 mins), yung sesame street naman daw ay may options na 15 minutes, 30 minutes ata.

There's also chicco din na dependable brand din naman na di nalalayo sa price range ng mga looney tunes etc.

Sana may mag share ng thoughts :)

I saw this kyowa ata or imarflex sterilizer for plates. Mas malaki siya than usual bottle sterilizer with a capacity of 6 bottles only, eto pwede pang plates also. It was around 3k ata basta not more than 4k. Im thinking of buying this one para i can also sterilize the toys. Ewan ko lang though if its sterilizes as well as the avent or chicco brands.

Looney tunes with dryer for me since breastmilk ang nilalagay, mas comfortable ako pag dry ang bottle and no water moist.

Dip lang sa water, no need for bottle warmer for me, since di naman binababad ng matagal yung milk

^yan din gusto ko malaman sis, kung hanggang kelan need sterilize bottles

I'm using Bebeta Sterilizer, 3 mos ko ng gamit, okay naman sya, kasya wideneck bottles ng Avent & Pigeon, pag 9 oz 6 bottles kasya, pag 4 oz pwede pang pagpatungin

hindi ko na pinapatuyo bottles ni baby, basta malamig ng bottles taktak ko lang excess water then assemble ko na, wala akong drying rack  ;)

^There was this post last week on FB Breastfeeding Pinays regarding until when dapat isterilize mga bottles and it's good to know na marami pala hindi na nagsterilize pag mejo malaki na baby.  Me, when my baby turned 6 months, i sterilize the bottles once a week.  Then when he turned 1 year and 1 month totally tinago ko na [textspeak!] sterlizer.  I just use warm soapy water then rinse with tap running water. Sa states hindi uso sa kanila ang sterilizers.
Sabi nga ng ibang moms, when our babies started solids hindi naman natin stinerilize cups, spoons, plates nila, just wash thoroughly and kung ano ano nga sinusubo nila sa mga mouth nila eh.  So same din with their feeding bottles.  But to each his own way naman.

our first sterilizer was old school pakulo (recommended by my in laws). but it made no sense to me to spend too much time making sure that the bottles were not left in there too long. sayang sa oras. we got a bebeta sterilizer, on sale pa if i remember correctly. sobrang tagal nya at reliable. di na kami bumili ng dryer. ngayon naman big na ang anak ko, di na need ng super sterilize.

^^nabasa ko rin yun sis ghye, na kesyo pag assemble na natin mga bottles hindi naman sterilize mga kamay natin kaya bale wala na rin, hihi!

okay yang 6 mos & 1 year old routine mo sis, 3 mos na lang lapit na rin ako, hihi! gamit ko kase Human Heart Nature Dish washing liquid

hi, mga mommies..joining in po. :)


In all my 4 kids, old school sterilizing process ang sinusunod ko..since yun naman ang advise saken ni mama ko at ng pedia ng mga kids..pero now that we are having our fifth and last baby, hubby and I opted to buy steam sterilizer..mas mabisa daw yun sa mga bpa free feeding bottles since di mo na nga ilulublob at papakuluan amga bottles and other feeding utensils..


anyone uses steam sterilizer here, mga mommies? kindly share your thoughts po..

thanks!

I'm using looney tunes rapid steam sterilizer.. actually eto yung all in one.. bottle/food warmer, juicer,etc.. around 2k lang..

super sulit nito sakin 5 mos na si baby.. I never dry bottles nga pala, mas prone kasi sa bacteria kung after sterilize eh ilalagay sa rack tapos patutuyuin..eh na sterilized na nga... I followed what other mommies do here sa GT, after sterilize, (I also use wilkins water sa sterilizer) I put water na sa bottles yung usual na consume ni baby per feed.. then lalagyan nalang ng milk pag feeding time na...

Saves time, electricity pa. kasi kung gagamit pa ako ng electric dryer, 45mins pa naku lakas din sa kuryente yan...

We are using Avent 3in1 Electric Steam Sterilizer bought it online kaya mas mura if you compare it sa Mall and its 220 volts so okay. So far never had problems with it. Still looks new. Performance wide it does the job pero good thing about this sterilizer eh pwede siyang maliit or malaki.

Plan on getting bottle warmer but my friend told me its hard na masanay si baby kasi baka ayaw na uminom pag hindi mainit.

we bought a cheap sterilizer, same lang naman ang function with all other branded and pricey ones. the brand is precious moments. we bought it for around Php 1400. we don't use bottle warmers. we just dip the cold bottle to a bowl filled with warm water before giving it to our baby.

Hi mga sis! Ask ko lang ilan minutes ninyo inesterilize bottles ni baby? I bought kase bebeta sterlizer 8mins. Standard nya automatic mag ooff. Kaso yung looney tunes bottles na binili ko 2-3mins. Lang  daw dapat isterilize.

I created the topic because when I searched for this topic it is already locked and I can't find the new thread for this.

What is the best steam sterilizer na mura lang and matibay yung hindi madaling masira.

Okay ba ang Baby Looney Tunes? What is the voltage of this one?

What about this one which is Bebeta

^^Nakita ko na yang Barney sa Lazada and P1599 lang siya. Kung features lang pag uusapan gusto ko siya kasi na aadjust yung minutes nito diba? Kung hanggang kailan pwedeng steam. Tapos pwede naman na maging isang bottle ang steam paminsan then ma adjust na kaunting minutes lang kailangan pag nataon. Ayaw lang naman namin rito yung character eh! lalo na hubby ko.  ;D Ang gagawin ko na lang pwede namang takpan ng sticker mukha ni Barney eh! Kaso sa Lazada sold out siya. Mas gusto ko kasi ito compare dun sa bebeta na parang hindi naaadjust. Btw may tong ba yang sa Barney?

Post by: BDJ on July 23, 2014, 03:26:18 pm
For those who are using Looney Tunes steam sterilizer ano ba mas maganda yung multifunction or yung the one with dryer? kasi sa nakita ko dalawang magkaibang bagay ito eh! Yung isang multi function walang dryer.

For those who are using Bebeta, safe ba mag sterilize ng bottle kapag isa isa lang within 8 minutes? Kasi ito ang nakikita kong problema parang hindi siya adjustable kundi automatic lang ito na mag off kapag 8 minutes na. What if gusto ko isang bote lang muna?

Sayang nga lang kuryente mo.
Title: Re: All about sterilizers, bottle warmers
Post by: prettypepz on July 23, 2014, 04:27:48 pm
^ I prefer Looney Tunes Multi function kasi don narin ako nag iinit ng food ni baby.. Nung una gusto ko yung may dryer but eventually hindi mo naman need patuyuin kung na sterilized na yung bottles basta lagyan mo na agad ng water nya (provided yung water na ginamit mo pang sterilize is distilled din), gastos lang sa kuryente yung dryer and besides 1 hour daw yung dryer na yun.. 0_0
Title: Re: All about sterilizers, bottle warmers
Post by: BDJ on July 23, 2014, 05:21:52 pm
^Yun bang multifunction may tong nang kasama ba yun sa baby looney tunes?

And ask ko na rin how many times do you use that sterilizer then curious na rin ako kung magkano additional nababayaran niyo sa electricity bill.

Title: Re: All about sterilizers, bottle warmers
Post by: BDJ on August 01, 2014, 01:09:14 pm
I already purchased the Multipurpose and Rapid Steam Sterilizer at the price of 1430. This is 350 Watts in which nacompute na namin kung magkano maidadagdag sa electric bill if we are going to use it everyday for 9-12 minutes lang. Hindi naman pala masakit ang consumption at maliit lang pala as in per day parang sentimo lang tapos sabihin mo nang 31 pesos a month ang idagdag. So mas sulit ito compare sa gustong planuhin ng hubby ko na bumili ng kaldero tapos doon madalas gagamitin for sterlized then siempre gas naman ang kakainin nun. I would rather choose this one na araw arawin. Akala kasi ng hubby ko malakas kumain ng kuryente ang 350 watts. Sa Distilled water naman mapapagastos rito just in case. I hope matagal ko itong magagamit.

Title: Re: All about sterilizers, bottle warmers
Post by: chubbycheeks on August 19, 2014, 11:32:12 am
Nakita ko na Chicco, Looney Toons and Precious Moments in person. Less than 2k silang tatlo, naka-sale pa yun Precious Moments at 1,700. Looney Toons is probably cheaper by 100-200 pesos. Comparing the three, pinakamukhang durable yun Chicco, probably because of the simple design. The other two have tongs included but wasn't able to check Chicco.

I opted for Farlin electric sterilizer. 3 na kaming meron nito and also sa hospital where i gave birth tested na quality kahit 5-6 times a day nila ginagamit sa nursery nila.

I've been using mine for 6 months now and ok naman. Not so pricey but not super cheap na mapapaisip ka if ok ba quality.
Title: Re: All about sterilizers, bottle warmers

How much ang farlin, sis?
Title: Re: All about sterilizers, bottle warmers
Post by: docs on August 23, 2014, 12:42:51 pm
P2k bili ko pero last month nagsale baby company 20% off. P1750 sa lazada now.

binili ko yung mataas na version yung kasya 8 bottles. 2 kasi farlin na electric isang mababa and isang mataas yung body. mas ok malaki kasi mas madaming mailalagay. pwede kasing patong patong lang mga botes and parts don so more than 8 bottles pa mailalagay.

at first gusto ko sana yung looney toones na may drier but naisip ko ok lang naman na walang drier kasi ang tagal ng hihintayin arounf 45 min-1hr ang buong process. sayang kuryente. air dry ok na. kahit may moist if di totally matuyo ok lang.

^sis 6 mos ko ng gamit yung Bebeta namin, ganun talaga mainit sya once na mag off na sya, kaya ang ginagawa ko pagka off nya hinuhugot ko muna tapos wait pa ako ng 15-30 minutes bago ko buksan at assemble mga bottles, I don't think nakakatunaw naman ng plastic yung init nya, kase nga yung traditional na pag sterilize pinapakuluan ang bottles mas mainit ata yun  ;)

Post by: docs on September 10, 2014, 03:14:33 pm
for those na may sterilizer na walang dryer i nice trick to dry your bottles is kunin mo na habang mainit pa. i don't use thong kasi nahihirapan ako pero you can use it kung ayaw mo matouch ang bottle. i just wash my hands then nagaalcohol bago ko hawakan ang bottles. labas lang naman ang hahawakan and not loob kung saan pwede macontaminate ang bottles.

i have a big container na may lampin then wisik wisik ko muna bottles then throw lang ng throw sa container. wisik na may force para mas lumabas ang nabuild up na water sa loob ng bottles. habang mainit ang bottles mas madali magevaporate ang water. you don't need to place them in an ordered way basta may spaces naman where air can penetrate para mabilis magdry up. ang assembled nipple and rings iniiwan ko sa sterilizer if or kaya naman nilalagyan ko na ng cover.  i've been doing this for 7 months now. walang problem kay baby like diarrhea, etc. my sister also copied this trick. almost 2 months na and okay din naman baby niya.

i just don't like much ang mga basa na bote kahit pa steamed water naman. although minsan nagagamit ko naman din kahit may wet part pa ang bottles.

Hello mommies, question naman regarding sa pag sterilize

After nyo mag sterilize ng bottles, saan nyo sya nilalagay? sa bottle rack ba/air dry. Or since na sterilize naman na sya, pwede na ba gamitin yun agad kahit basa-basa pa sya? INiisip ko kasi if air dry, parang maalikabukan din. hehe! Kaso ang hassle, ang tagal matuyo nung bilog bilog sa bottle after i sterilze. hehe

Post by: daveigh on September 11, 2014, 11:48:25 pm

I used my Chicco sterilizer for the first time today. I love using it except i wish it already has a dryer. Feeling ko nawawalan ng saysay ang pag sterilize coz i have to air dry them pa. Wala din akong bottle rack, I just use a plate to assemble them.

for 6 months now, i've been using munchkin steam guard microwave sterilizer. no fuss kahit madaling araw na zombie-mode you could use it. i also have the munchkin deluxe drying rack. i use the sterilizer cover to cover the drying rack. para-paraan lang  ;)

i don't have a bottle warmer. to thaw frozen breastmilk, i use an electric kettle and a thick ceramic mug. kahit zombie-mode, keribels pa rin.  ;)

If dusty sa place niyo, you will need to wash the dryer every other day and alcohol everyday.  You need another place to put your bottles and nipples.  I use first years, it's a little over a thousand lang.

You guys don't need a warmer.  According to the lactation specialist at st lukes, the warmer loses the anti bodies in the breastmilk so just use hot water.  We have lang hanabishi and thermos in the room.  3 minutes tops and it's good to go.  I mix latching and bottle feeding kasi masakit din talaga.

I do not warm my milk. I just thaw it with tap water and give it to my baby. So it becomes room temperature if i thaw it an hour or two before hand but there where times id give it cold and he has no problems naman. Whenever we go out i bring milk so i dont have to direct latch in public and nakalagay siya sa insulated bag and would be cold but he'd still drink it buti nalang.

I'm using The First Years electric steam sterilizer. i got it based on the good reviews I read online. Ok siya kasi easy to use and adjustable ang rack niya. Maraming bottles ang pweding ilagay pati parts ng breastpump and small toys kasya. You can also remove the rack if sobrang dami mo talagang kailangan sterilize. I use avent natural bottles pero kahit anong brand siguro ng bottle kakasya.

We used Avent electric sterilizer for my panganay for 2.5 yrs until she was weaned from the bottle. I also sterilized breast pump parts there. But for her eating utensils and during travels, we just used hot water.

I didnt use bottle warmer. Thaw sa tap water lang then sa hot water.

Its been 5 yrs, I plan to use it sa second child namin. I will have to take it out of the storage to check if its still working.

Re drying, after the bottles cooled down a bit, we put them in a separate covered container (lock in lock) with wash cloth to dry. We didnt use drying rack kasi prone to dust.

^ hi sis, 5499 sya sa SM baby company. Pero naka-sale, 4300 or 4600 nalang yata. ok talaga sya, malaki sya enough to fit almost all type ng bottles. kasi diba yung wide neck ng dr. brown's is like one of the biggest sized bottles sa market. bigger than avent natural kaya kasyang kasya. it isn't too bulky either to occupy a lot of space. kasya kasi 6 wide neck dr brown bottles. so if standard bottles, 8 kasya.

i've looked for other sterilizers narin kasi, fisher price, looney tunes, chicco, avent, e maliliit na bottles kasi sila kaya di kasya si dr. brown. avent is okay, kaso si standard bottle inside avent 3-in-1 hindi pasok yung height. mataas masyado si standard bottle ni brown for avent sterilizer so I chose brown nalang para fit lahat hehe.

Two years ago nasa P2,800 ang Looney Tunes, very useful siya lalo na kung breastmilk lalagay mo kasi may dryer. I have chico din pero mas okay ang Looney Tunes kasi di ko na kailangang i dry up pag magsasalin ako ng BM.

Before binababad lang namin bottles sa mainit na tubig, but since babalik na ko sa work at hassle na yun, decided to get the Looney Tunes Multipurpose & Rapid steam sterilizer yesterday.. Yung may bottle warmer, food warmer, egg boiler and juicer. Got it at yellow tag price p1,430 sa SM babyco.

It fits 6 regulag bottles, 5 kapag Avent wideneck bottles. So far satisfied naman ako for its price. Hopefully in the future pag nagsosolids na si baby eh masulit ng gamit yung other functions nya. :)

EDIT: after 1 week use, nag-stain agad yung heating plate... ganun ba talaga ka-bilis? tas may nakita pa akong kalawang the size of a dot! :( ano po ba tamang paraan ng paglinis ng heating plate? pwede pa kaya ipa-replace eto?

I asked a friend based in the UK to find me an Avent breastpump there since it's way cheaper compared to prices here in the Philippines.  Then last night, he sent me some pictures so I can choose which one he'll get.  There was this package na 1 3-in1 steam sterilizer, manual breast pump, 4 Natural 9oz feeding bottles, 2 natural 4oz feeding bottles, 2 natural teats, 1 bottle brushand 3 soothers which is at 50% off.  I computed it on Philippine peso and ang lalabas Php5,250.00 for the set.  What a steal sana kaso my steam sterilizer I used for my first born and was also bought by my same friend in UK four years ago is very much functional. Sayang naman kung kukunin ko just because it's a good steal eh di ko rin magagamit.

We only used our bottle warmer for about 2-3 months... if kunwari nasira sya and may nagtanong if papalitan namin, I would say no kasi it's not worth it. But if I give birth during winter time again, yes I'll probably buy one again but definitely not gonna shell out a lot. Sayang lang.

sterilizer, this we used until she was around 2.5 yrs old... so definitely worth getting it, IMO :)

I got this nice, fancy Kinde Kozii bottle warmer, supposedly the best one out there, and really, it's just as easy to just warm/thaw breastmilk using tap water. Maybe I'll use it in the future when my baby starts solids and I can use it to warm solid food in containers.

I do want to buy the EcoMom UV sterilizer though. It functions as sterilizer, dryer, and storage of bottles and other breastfeeding accessories.

I am expressing breastmilk and I'm starting to build my BM stash. Bought Avent sterilizer...

How do you deal with the water condensation on the bottles/lids after sterilization? Air dry? Tried air drying but it took ages for the bottles to be completely dry.

Can I fill my Avent bottles with expressed BM and just refrigerate them, to save time?

Also, do you remove the teats from the nipple holder during sterilization? Ang hirap kasi ibalik and that would require touching the teats, sayang ang pagiging sterile.

Yes, sabi sa akin sa avent na you need to remove the teats from their holder while cleaning, pero ibalik mo din before sterlizing them

Usually taktak ko lang maigi before using it for BM or formula, air dry ko or I use clean na damit ni baby.

We also bought chicco steam sterilizer, because I find the korean UV sterilizers na uso ngayon too expensive. Medyo madami akong questions sana may makasagot  ;D

Para sa mga mommies na nagsteam sterilizer, how did you dry your bottles, teats, pump parts after sterilizing? Airdry ba? Did you pat dry using paper towels or cloth towels/lampin?

Completely dry ba dapat yung before storing the bottles? Minsan kasi may matitirang moisture, kung hintayin kong completely madry before storing, baka matagal syang nakahang during airdry and maexpose pa sa ibang bacteria/germs.

Someone told me na dapat Wilkins daw gamit na water sa steam sterilizer. How true to?

Before ba manganak, did you already sterilize yung bottles?

Question po, what is the difference between simply boiling the bottles in hot water from using an electric sterilizer? Hindi pa kasi ako bumili ng sterilizer and I am contemplating whether I should kasi if wala naman difference why not just boil it. Mas harmful ba or nagcocontribute sa breakdown ng plastic sa bottle? I am getting paranoid kasi even if my baby's bottles are said to be BPA free.

I bought an ecomom for my second baby. Definitely more convenient to use compared to our old sterilwizer (steam).  Plus, saves space. Before I need space for the sterilizer, drying rack and storage. Ngayon I store the bottles and pump sa ecomom na. It has drying feature so no need for drying rack. I agree that it is expensive... pero Iniisip ko na lang na when my baby is done with milk, I can use it to sterilize toys, cellphones, make up brushes, etc.

Sis Aftergl0w, I think the difference is just a matter of convenience, mas matrabaho lang magsterilize using the traditional boiling of water and babantayan mo pa. Not sure lang ako kung how many minutes max iboil dapat yung bottles.

If I had the budget, I'd also go for the UV sterilizers, it seems so convenient kasi. Hopefully in a few years bumaba na ang presyo, pag mas dumami na sila sa market.  ;D I heard that Ecomom costs half the price pag binili sa Korea mismo.

^Thanks sis.  How often do you sterilize your baby's bottles? I researched on the internet, paiba2x ang sagot eh. Some say it is not necessary, except for the first usage. Some say once a week, other naman every after use. Naguguluhan ako. I personally am wary about heating plastic bottles everyday, but if kailangan talaga, I think I might as well buy na a sterilizer para ma sulit ko.

For sterilizer, I am using the latest Avent Sterilizer and it works very good. Super init lang niya after so you have to wait for a couple of minutes before you get the bottles.

Sino dito gumagamit ng bottle warmer? Yung baby ko kasi mas gusto niya na warm yung milk. Right now, what I do is nagpapakulo ako ng konting water lang (so super bilis lang kumukulo na). And then I place it in a cup and nilalagay ko dun yung bottle.

However, I'll be back to work next week and baka mahirapan yung helper na maiwan sa kanya.

Thank you

@Aftergl0w, after every use sis. Once a day ako kung magsterilize ng mga gamit na bottles. Couple of times na staycation kami, binababad ko na lang sa boiled water

I've heard about Ecomom too but I'm really wondering why moms these days would spend 15k for a sterilizer vs. the usual one you can buy at the mall for 2-3k. What's the main advantage of UV sterilizer vs. a steam one? Apart from that it looks nicer and you can use it as storage.
Ang ayoko naman sa kanya is the entire cycle takes 35 minutes so it takes more time and electricity unlike the normal ones na 10 mins done na,

I'm just looking for the ff features: sterilizer with dryer, can fit all sizes of bottles and parts, can serve as storage for bottles/ pump parts, easy to use and clean

TIA!

Now na 3 months na ang baby ko, parang na te tempt akong bumili ng UV sterilizer especially that I am an exclusive pumper.  :P End of each day nakaka 4 na salang ako sa steam sterilizer namin nakakapagod din kahit 9 minutes per cycle lang. Plus hindi pa yun tuyo. E pag breastmilk dapat no water residue totally kasi parang ma affect yung shelf life. May nabasa akong blog na pinag compare nya UV sterilizers in the market at uPang ang pinaka sulit - performance, price and electricity consumption.

we've been using a steam sterilizer for my first baby that doesn't have a dryer! sobrang pinagsisisihan ko talaga. i wish i did more research on it.

on our second baby, im considering getting a uv sterilizer na but still having doubts kasi its really expensive! i plan to exclusively breastfeed na kasi this time, and ang hirap talaga patuyuin ng breast pumps with a steam sterilizer. plus we'll be sterilizing 2 sets of bottles na, ang daming papatuyuin without a dryer. :(

second option ko is to get a steam sterilizer with dryer na. ill figure out na lang what to do with the old one. its such a waste.

@sparklingjewel -- sis, basta somewhere here sa page nya: https://margosmama.wordpress.com/2017/10/20/breaking-down-the-cost-of-giving-birth-in-the-philippines/

Paki browse mo nalang, ayaw kasi mag load dito sa office kaya hindi ko makita exact blog post nya about the uv sterilizers.  ;D

@bzbee, nakakainis talaga steam sterilizer sis, ilang beses na din kaya ako napapaso!  :-[ todo taktak pa ko agad para mas madali matuyo nakakapagoood! I plan to buy na ng uv talagang pikon na ako sa steam sterilizer ko. I think sulit na din kasi pati teethers and other toys pwede na masterilizer lalo na malapit na mag ngipin baby ko.

Thank you, mindiegirl.

bzbee, may steam sterilizers naman yata with dryer, which also cost under 5k.

Hindi ko parin majustify why i need to pay 15k for a UV sterilizer apart from it looks nice hehe.
Well, i have a few more months to think about it... but the 10k savings could go a long way for other baby stuff.

@mindiegirl yung ibang teether ng baby ko natunaw after putting it sa steam sterilizer. didn't know hindi pala lahat pwede ilagay sa sterilizer. nasayang tuloy. :(

@sparklingjewel wow good to know na mura lang din pala ang sterilizer with dryer. as in tuyong tuyo na kaya yun? meron din uv sterilizers na less than 10k pero hindi sikat na brand so nakakaduda. i guess one of the advantages ng uv is mas marami kang pwede i-sterilizer like certain toys, phones and books. so siguro if you're particular sa ganung bagay you'll benefit from that. pero ako personally, i don't think its necessary. for bottles and breast pump ko lang talaga siya gagamitin if ever.

^Yes sis meron with dryer na mura padin kaya i find it hard to convince myself (and hubby) why a 15k UV sterilizer is worth it. May science ba talaga na mas effective and safe ang UV kesa steam/ heat. Is it not harmful for a child's things. Kasi yun lang talaga pinagkaiba eh..

buhayin ko lang yun thread!! been wanting one... ano mas okay Haenim or Upang UV sterilizer?
I will get one kasi preggy ako 2nd time.. may steam sterilizer naman ako kaso never ko nagamit Avent siya.. kaya di ko nagamit kasi SAHM ako  for 2 years mahigit at never natuto anak ko dumede sa bote.. at 8 months straw cup na siya agad.

^Haenim is the biggest, has the most features and most expensive pero if capacity is not an issue and you won't be sterilizing a lot then Upang is ok na. I went with Ecomom because it has the most local users who all have good things to say, and more accessible service center :)

May user ba dito ng Uvibuddy sterilizer? Okay ba? Relatively cheaper kasi compared to other brands like Ecomom and Haenim.

I saw a comparison chart (https://smhttp-ssl-37593.nexcesscdn.net/wpstore/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/sterilizer-comparison_updated-1.jpg)
I'm thinking of getting one din pero talaga bang deads ang bacteria and other harmful thingies sa UV sterilizers?

To those using UV sterilizers, does it cause your bottles and nipples to turn yellow?
I heard that UV light destroys silicone like Comotomo bottles.

A friend gave her steam sterilizer sakin nung preggy ako sa first baby ko...pero ang ending ay sa regular sterilizer na pakulo pakulo din kami nagsterilize...un parang malaking kaserola lang...then sa 2nd born ko, yun isang kaserola na lang talaga ginagamit ng hubby ko para magsterilizer, so feeling nya waste of money lang un isang sterilizer na binili....ginamit na lang nya bilang stock pot  ;D

so sa current pregnancy ko, same mode na lang sterilizing thru pakulo sa kaserola..

I never used UV sterilizer. Traditional kaserola din ako from Farlin. Aluminum steriliser set

After maboil, hayaan ko lang konti yung bottles/nips sa  loob then kunin ko using pangsipit na kasama sa set then nilalagyan ko na agad ng distilled water yung bottles then takpan agad para iwas bacteria.
Pag need na gamitin bote, lagyan lang milk then ready na.
Solved naman ako sa ganyang set up.

^sis J.Wartner Farlin din un regular sterilizer namin sis, na naging stock pot heehe mas comfy si hubby sa regular caserola....pero syempre yun kaserolang ginagamit nya sa pagpakulo ng bottles, di na nya ginagamit panluto...nalalakihan daw kasi sya dun sa Farlin...yun binigay sakin na pamana ng friend ko na steam sterilizer di ko din nagamit, pinamana ko din sa iba...

eto lang natutunan ko. if your using silicone bottles like comotomo and boon don't buy UV  sterilizer
masisisra lang siya it's not compatible
i have UV care multi-functional sterilizer di ko magamit gamit palagi kasi yun anak ko sanay sa comotomo na bote... kaya gamit ko pa din yung avent 3-1 sterilize..  then buy na lang ako ng drying rack and storage box.
