Little Bear is exclusively breastfed, but that doesn’t mean he does not take a bottle. He gets a bottle of expressed milk from Hubs every night before bed. It allows him to have some one-on-one time with daddy and be very comfortable with taking a bottle, and allows me time to pump and build up a freezer stash of milk. However, it also means washing bottles and pumping equipment… blah! So anything that makes life easier for me, lets me spend less time doing dishes and more time doing the fun stuff with my family is good in my books. The Playtex Smart Bottle Accessories – SmartBrush Bottle Brush & SmartSteam Microwave Sterilizer – help me save time when cleaning and let me get have to having fun with my family faster.
Now at first glace, you might thing all bottle brushes are the same, that is until you have used a crappy one. You know the one where the form starts breaking off the brush making the small end useless. Or where the bristles are so stiff you get sprayed with a mist of water every time you take the brush out of a bottle. Well the Playtex SmartBrush Bottle Brush does none of those annoying things! The bristles are firm enough to reach into corners, but soft enough that you don’t get a shower as you are washing bottles.
The Playtex SmartSteam Microwave Sterilizer is perfect for not only bottles but also my pumping equipment. The sterilizer can hold up to 6 bottles and comes with a basket in the middle that is perfect to hold pacifiers, lids, and the valves from my pump. Once everything is washed, I am able to sterilize it in 2 minutes and then I am ready for the next feeding.
Also as part this line of products you can find the Playtex SmartSpace Drying Rack and SmartSpace Dishwasher Basket. I welcome any tools that make life easier and let me spend less time cleaning! Do you hate washing bottles too? What do you do to make it a little easier?
