I've read that after 6 months you no longer need to sterilise feeding bowls/spoons etc, but that you should continue to sterilise bottles for as long as they're used. But what about sippy cups that are used to give just water? And when can you start to give water straight from the tap without having to boil it first? I am assuming that if you give milk from a cup/beaker then you should sterilise that too, or am I wrong?

Many thanks all!

I think just things which come into contact with milk, because milk is a better environment for bacteria to flourish.

6 months for tap water (still need to boil for making formula though)

Cool - was getting fed up of having to boil the kettle and wait for it to cool before she could have a drink!
