Just wondering where is the best place to store bottles after they have been sterilised or do you just wait til you need to use them and sterilise them then?
Also do people still sterilise bottles as recently I was at a hospital where they just washed them with detergent and I was told people don't really sterilise bottles anymore.
I'm asking this in regards to when I want to express milk.

Some people are saying that you don't need to sterilise bottles anymore but i still do (just to ensure that i have washed them properly and that there is no old milk left) <_< .
I always sterilise and wait till they dry (cause moisture can cause bacteria buildup) and cap them and put in the cupboard untill i need them.
Otherwise i have expressed into them and just put them straight into the freezer.

I used to keep my sterilised bottles, teats, dummies etc in an airtight container in the fridge.
That's how the ABA told me to do it.
Also don't store them with the caps and lids on as it can lock in germs and moisture. You are best to leave all bottles open to air.
