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..

^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...
