Again, bottles! Because I go through so many bottles, I have to clean and sterilize them on a daily basis. I admit, this is one of the things I don’t enjoy about pumping–all the bottle washing. (You can watch my postpartum video to learn more about why I am exclusively pumping here.)
For this one, I am sharing a product that I have the popular brand option for. I didn’t make this purchase, my husband did. So if I had it my way, I would have definitely gotten the affordable option in this case. But I wanted to share this anyway in case you are looking for one.
If you pump, you know how important it is to dry and sterilize pump parts and bottles. It can also be a long time waiting for them to dry the old fashion way. I currently have the Baby Brezza Sterilizer and Dryer. It does a great job of doing both in a short amount of time. To do a complete drying and sterilizing cycle for 6 bottles (and whatever else I try to fit in!), takes about 45 minutes. If you just want to dry, that time is less than 10 minutes. The Baby Brezza has a price tag at around $100 and is sitting at 4.5 stars on Amazon. I have a full video review of the Baby Brezza here.
Comparable to the Baby Brezza is the Papablic Electric Steam Dryer and Sterilizer. While it isn’t as aesthetically pleasing as the Baby Brezza, it dries and sterilizes 11 bottles (depending on size–many reviews stated that you had to angle Dr. Brown’s bottles and only fit about 6). According to reviews, it takes about the same time to dry as the Baby Brezza. It carries a cheaper price tag than the Brezza at around $70.
