How long should you boil babies nipples

Answer #1

I used to boil my daughters for 5 minutes…but make sure you keep stirring them so them don’t settle to the bottom because I’m pretty sure they will melt! lol

Answer #2

Always with new ones…then I did it once a week from the time she was born until she was off them…It gets rid of all the germs and helps little ones from getting sick.

Even now (shes 2) after her colds I boil her toothbrush and the lids to the sippy cups she used. It helps I think it helps her stay healthy and she’s not sick as often as some of the other kids she’s been around…
