Whether it's your first time or you’ve done it all before, no one can predict what breastfeeding will be like.
Thats it really - can't remember if I stopped after a year with my dd - it was a while ago now
I stopped when mine were starting to move around and pick things up off the floor and put them in their mouths (around 6 months). Also, if you have a dishwasher it's usually hotter than water you would wash up in, so no need to sterilise.
That will be now then - he has everything in his mouth - have a dishwasher so hurrah no need to sterilize anymore
I stopped quite early with my second (about 'moving about' time with my first though) when the dog came up and licked his hands which ds 2 then stuffed in his mouth...
Just dishwash everything. No need to sterilse. Ever. Nobody in the US sterilises (sterilzes? )Alternatively, wash in hot soapy water, rinse in hot water and leave to air dry on clean kitchen paper. It's what UCHL recommend for babies leaving the special care unit.
I stopped at about 4 months.
