Going on holiday and can't be bothered with all the sterilising etc so thought someone may know of some sort of system or pack where I can just chuck out the teat and bottle when finished.

I have read on here that Boots sell single-use sterilised bottles.

Yes, I have seen them at Boots.

Yes, I've seen them in hospitals. They are basically a plastic pouch attached to a teat. I'm pretty sure you can only get them already filled with formula milk, though...?

How old is your baby? Unless very tiny or prone to dodgy tummy, I would just sod the sterilising and bring Fairy liquid and a bottle brush and make sure there is a kettle in your room + give them a good handwash with hot water.
I also use the readymade cartons of formula when going on hols. Makes your suticase heavy, but who can be faffed with making up bottles on hols?

Cheers all, those hospital ones are what I'm after. Do they sell them in the shops?

Yes. Boots do them. They are not cheap though from what I remember.

You can also get sterilising bags in Mothercare I think. I used them a few times and it was fine and fairly easy. You can hang them up.

Another time we went away I bought a large tupperware type box with a lid and packed it with the paraphanalia need with a baby and then used it to sterilise stuff and then store things in a sterile environment. It wasn't too much hassle.

I bought some several years ago when ds2 was a baby and still have them, but I would agree with MrsMattie. When ds2 was four months old we went away and I just washed his bottles in the hotel bathroom with very hot water.

Here. They are quite pricey though.

Tommee Tippee make them, I think you can get single ones or packs of 4.

There are some on ebay but I have no idea how to do a link sorry.

Buda/Saadia; can I ask if the bottles you used already had formula in them i.e. were they just empty bottles, or were they the pre-filled pouches MrsMattie mentions used in hospitals? I'm particularly looking for the pre-filled pouch with a teat on the top.

Mothercare do bags of about 10 for about 8 quid I think, the tommee tippee ones.

Tommee tippee ones from Boots are really cheap. Bought some yesterday and they are five for £2.93.

Buda Fri 05-Jun-09 09:56:59

The ones I used were not pre-filled. I get what you are after now. Have only seen those ones in hospitals.

How old is your baby?

saadia Fri 05-Jun-09 10:38:25

The ones I had were not pre-filled either, I have never seen pre-filled ones available comercially.

Spaceman I've seen SMA packs of pre filled bottles (though they are glass I think) in Boots.

Shockingly expensive though I think.

I have seen the plastic bottles (not ones pre filled though) and they are shit - leak everywhere. At first I thought it was me and I'd put the lid on badly (once on you can't take it off) so tried another, made sure it was on properly this time - still crap. I personally wouldn;t waste your money and would do as someone else suggested - large tupperwear box with all the water steriilising stuff - have a good holiday

Boots and Asda sell them.

They are called Steribottles.

You ahve to be careful when putting the ring and teat on as you only get one chance and it can be a bit tricky.

mme- what about using a cold water sterilising method. All you need is a large sealable freezer bag (you know like the zip lock ones) for putting the water in (or alternativley whatever plastic container you can find on holiday). Then take some Milton sterlising tablets. With the milton ones you can pull the bottle and teats straight out of the sterilsing water and use without rinsing......
to sterilise just pop rinsed out bottles in the water and add a tablet- leave for a few hours (ie between feeds) and there you go. Tablets aren't expensive I don't think
