Today we are going to show you the proper way to clean a baby bottle. Here is a dirty baby bottle. Well, dirty as it has milk in it. Let's go over here and get a baby cleaning brush with a sponge. It's a simple cleaning device for cleaning the baby bottles. Here is another one. If you have kids you are probably familiar with these devices.
Okay, now we're going take our big brush and go ahead and put a little soap directly on the brush
Push the brush down into the bottle and scrub it. Now you want to make sure that you are scrubbing hard with this brush because babies don't have the same bacterial composition in their stomachs that we do as adults. They are not as well developed.
Now I am not putting very much soap on here. I am putting a little bit, but it's about half of my pinky nail. So, run a little bit of water into the bottle. As you can see there's not a lot, but there is a little bit. Now the reason I used two of these to scrub with is because it only takes an extra 30 to 40 seconds to do. If you don't do this, your children could become very sick. Sick enough, in some cases, that they may end up going to the hospital or worse.
It makes a squeaky noise whenever it is clean. If your bottle is not squeaking after you washed it then it is not clean. So make sure your bottle is squeaky clean. Make sure you thoroughly rinse it, and then set it somewhere it can air dry.
