Had the normal one with ds and have found a few cheap on ebay, but not heard any pros and cons of this one. Anyone..

We have the IQ, got it from new. Not used any other one before so nothing to compare with.

I also BF so we don't use it that often. It does fit my Medela pumping stuff.

We have the IQ 24 and it's great! Load it up with the bottles and water and it sterilises every few hours so the bottles are ready to go when you need them.

If you're not planning on using bottles frequently then you can probably do without it, and just buy a steriliser that you set off when you need a bottle.

Now DS only has a couple of bottles a day we don't use the 24 hour functionality and just set it off as needed.

don't bother with the '24' bit, i was exclusively ffing since 3 weeks and didn't need it once. But I am going to sell mine if really interested!

You can make the IQ sterilise now (prog 1) or put it on prog 2 for 24 hours so it keeps doing it every 3 (I think) hours for 24 hours.

duh of course formula feeding! I cant work out if id use the 24 hour one... i couldve done with it with ds as he fed every 2 hours so first bottle in the morning had to make sure was switched on the instant i got up!

It is exactly the same as the avent one before that?

the older avent one only sterilises once and then stops and if you needed the bottles doing again then you would have to set it all back up again with water, etc and switch it back on.
