Milton - Mother and baby

Win a £250 John Lewis voucher

Milton have been providing a safe way to sterilise baby bottles for over 70 years. Find out how they help keep babies protected from germs and harmful bacteria – and enter the competition below to win a £250 John Lewis voucher.

For the first year of your baby's life their immunity is still developing – meaning it's really important to keep them protected from germs, both at home and whilst out and about. Milk is the perfect environment for bacteria to grow and if infant feeding equipment has not been cleaned properly it can be a source of infection, whether you're bottle or breastfeeding.

Babies learn by putting all sorts of things in their mouths, many of which could be covered in harmful bacteria. Whilst it's impossible to sterilise everything your baby picks up, the experts at Milton have developed a product range that gives you the choice to decide the best way of sterilising and cleaning to suit your lifestyle.

Milton products

Milton has been a leading name in sterilising for over 70 years. During that time the Milton Method of cold water sterilisation has been used by millions of parents and midwives in homes and hospitals throughout the UK and beyond. It's quick, easy, effective and great value – ensuring you always have a freshly-sterilised bottle to hand (perfect for those 3am feeds!).

The combi microwave and cold water steriliser is small enough to fit in most microwaves, yet spacious enough to sterilise up to five bottles from any brand. All products can be used with Milton's iconic sterilising tablets or sterilising fluid – both kill over 99% of all bacteria, viruses and fungi.

Milton's sterilising tablets are both practical and portable and are ideal to use whilst travelling. You can rest assured that by using the Milton method your little one's feeding equipment will be sterile and germ-free. Easy to use and made up with regular tap water, items are sterilised in just 15 minutes and stay sterile in the solution for 24 hours – meaning you can sterilise your baby's feeding equipment again and again.
