I have stupidly left my Milton cold steriliser at my sister's. I need to sterilise bottles, any alternative suggestions? Can I put 5litres of water & Milton in a big bowl and use that instead? I have a steam steriliser, but it's a Philips one not NUK (make of bottles I have). Arrrgggh! I am such an idiot. My little one was born at 30 weeks, spent 6 weeks in NICU, he has been home for 2 weeks & is 38 weeks old which is why I am panicking about the steriliser. All advice very welcome.

Yes of course, you can just put the cold water and Milton tablet in a clean bowl, only problem you might have is making sure everything is fully submerged?You could also consider boiling everything for 5 mins in a saucepan? Hth
I though I could stick a plate on top (its a 7 litre mixing bowl so huge. But yes, forgot about a pan and good old boiling water....!
i sterilised my NUK bottles in a philips steam steriliser, I'm sure the brands don't have to match the NUK bottles will still fit. DD was born at 26 weeks so i understand the concern.congrats on having your LO home, its amazing bringing them home isn't it.
Yeah great, a plate will be fine! And a big congratulations on your new baby! Enjoy the snuggles!!
Thanks gotmylittlelamb, yes amazing to have him home, only been back for two weeks so far so I am still at the over-worrying stage hopefully I will start enjoying him being home very soon
A dishwasher is a very large steam steriliser, too (as recommended by the prem baby unit my boys were in!).Congrats on having your baby home, it's fab (and a wee bit scary!).
Brands def don't have to match for steam steriliser. A plate on top of the bowl for cold water sterilisation would be fine too
