weaning and sterilising - totally confused

hello - can anyone explain to me what I'm supposed to sterilise when I start weaning? Do I have to sterlise bowls and plates and spoons? If so, can you put these things in the steam steriliser? Sorry for these stupid questions smile!

My DD (5.5 m) puts everything in her mouth anyway so I don't really see the point of sterilising but I would like to be reassured.

Thank you!

No, you don't need to sterilise any of the weaning stuff. The reason they carry on recommending sterilising milk stuff is that old milk can grow some very nasty bacteria. But tbh by six months we just put DS' bottles in the dishwasher on hot wink

Just clean plates and cups and bowls, well rinsed to get rid of washing up liquid, will be fine.

As LMD said, no need to sterilise any of the weaning stuff.
