I'm interested in buying MAM bottles for when baby arrives.

We just bought a microwave but it's only 17L and I'm wondering if the bottles will fit in there?

Does anyone know from experience?

Thank you

You shouldn't put baby bottles in the microwave. Either an old fashion water in a pan in the hob or a fancy bottler warmer are the way to go.

MAM bottles self sterilise in the microwave.

I'm not sure if they'll fit, ours is 20L I think and the 9oz bottles are pretty close to the top. I guess it depends on the dimensions rather than just the volume?

@FluffySunshineBunny MAM bottles are sterilised in the microwave.

However if microwave is too small you could sterilise them in boiling water or with Milton tablets so don't worry!

Sterilising the bottles is not too bad as you don’t sterilise them at full height and it won’t be a problem while you are using the small new born bottles.

If you have bought the huge MAM steriliser to do a few at once then that will never fit. We took the steriliser to curry’s to try it out and it was a struggle.

@FluffySunshineBunny It's for sterilising the bottles not warming milk. They are self sterilising in the microwave.

@Miltonj Yeah I've just been looking at the Milton tablets if the bottles don't fit in the microwave! That seems simple enough too.

The bottles are really handy when you’re out and about visiting people but at home I found I wanted to sterilise lots of different things so used Milton at home

Apologies for misunderstanding. I bought the Phillips steriliser. And bigger bottles like the Dr. Brown go in the dishwasher but my baby is no a newborn. When he was we used the steriliser.
