Welcome back!! Or maybe I should say, I’m back! First off let me just apologize for being so absent on my blog. It has been a couple months since I have shared a new post, but I am pretty sure you are aware of everything that is happening on in the world. But….I am not here to talk about that (we all know what is happening). This is probably the only space that I have all to myself, where I get to share fun stuff with you and not worry about the rest. So let’s dive right in! Meet Emma Esperanza who is a little over three months now! I know! so fast right?! and my oh my how much babies change!
Today I’m sharing one of my favorite baby items that I purchased when I was expecting Sofia. So, I’ve pretty much have had this sterilizer & dryer going on 3 years now and it is the best $100 spent. Yeah yeah I know what you’re thinking…the price is a little much but honestly it has saved us so. much. time. It is simple to use and then you have clean, sterilized bottles, pacifiers, or small toys. I’ll show you…
First, you want to rinse your items with hot soapy water and then shake off any excess water before you load. The top rack is the designated area for the smaller items. Typically I add pacifiers or valves because they fit perfectly.
The bottom rack has larger holsters where you add the bigger items like bottles, bottle nipples and breast shields.
Next you want to add distilled water to the white dotted line, just enough to cover the white rim around the heater. I’m not so sure what happened to the area that looks a little brown. I imagine that I might not have added enough water once before. So now it’s just stained but it never smells burned.
Put the lid on and make sure the black arrows are aligned and pointing to each other.
Then you can set the time of your choice of 30, 45, or 60 minute drying cycles. It also allows you to sterilize only, sterilize and dry, or dry only. So you don’t always have to sterilize.
And voila easy peasy. Watch it go or go watch your favorite show while it does it’s magic by killing 99.9% of germs.
I seriously love this thing, I swear by it! But this is just my opinion and it works for me. I know that you can put everything in the dishwasher and you’re good to go! But to be honest I just really liked the idea of having a designated spot just for baby items. I also have the bottle warmer that I also love! Anything that helps a mama out is a win!
