I just ate the best orange, I haven’t eaten them since I was preggers because I ate the hell out of them until I couldn’t bear to have another one. Lol but this one was great, I wish I would have brought another one…..I would have soooooo eaten it. Lol

by the way guys I am not preggers, I tested and it was neg….And then I started yesterday. All is well and good in my world. Lol

other than the fact that my sister keeps throwing amelia’s bottles in the sink with all the other dirty dishes. She has been living with me for a few weeks and she will not stop putting them in the sink. I have to boil the bottles like more than once a week…..I don’t dry my bottles with the other dishes I put them on a papertowel for them to dry and for some reason I cant get it thru her thick head.

Which brings up this question…how often do you guys disinfect your baby bottles?

Oni Dr. Advised me I could stop boiling things at 3 months.

So, that's what I did. I no longer boil anything. When I wash them, it's in scouring hot water. But I don't boil anymore.

It's great to be able to pull a noonie out of a package and just pop it in! (esp. At the grocery store when you realize you left hers at home! Shocked )

I boiled all the bottles on the stove when I first opened them. After that I washed them by hand for about 2 weeks with wicked hot water and that got old fast, ever since then i've just put them in the dishwasher with all the other dishes and I run the sanitize cycle along with the regular one.

I only sterilized his bottles when they were new (here we are told not to sterilize too often as it could lead to thrush-and mtl has a great water system), but I would always wash them alone.

I only started mixing his cups and plates and stuff with mine a few months ago. Embarassed lol

Chu's too old for that...Plus we have entirely too many bottles. I'd have to do them in batches. Then i'd have to do the sippy cups and spoons... I'd lose it! Laughing
