Most of us can relate to that awful moment when a fractious baby drops their dummy on the floor and their cries immediately ramp up ten gears in frustration. If you haven’t got a clean spare, soothing baby can be a difficult task as no one wants to risk passing on the germs that will undoubtedly be present on the offending dummy. If you’re in a public place or out with friends, it only adds to what is already a stressful situation.
Thank goodness then for the Milton Portable Soother Steriliser. If your little one loves their dummy, then you’ll soon start to love this nifty little product. It looks cute – a small, colourful plastic ball with a strap that can be attached to the buggy or changing bag – but it’s more than just a pretty accessory. Inside you’ll discover a sponge-lined compartment that most brands of soother will fit neatly into. All you do is add water and a Milton Mini Sterilising Tablet before you leave home to create a clever portable steriliser that works in minutes and can be reused countless times throughout the day. Brilliant!
3 reasons why it’s SO important to sterilise everything that goes into baby’s mouth
- Babies are still developing their immune system therefore they are much more susceptible to infection than older children or adults.
- Even at a year old, a child only has around 17% of adult immunity levels against the germs that cause diarrhoea and vomiting.
- Milton sterilisation is proven to eliminate 99.9% of bacteria, fungi and viruses.
The Milton Portable Soother Steriliser is great solution for active parents, making it easy to protect baby from germs and giving peace of mind. What lots of mums do is give their baby one sterile dummy to use and keep a back-up ready in the steriliser. It can stay there for up to 24 hours – but is likely to be needed sooner than that! All you need to do is keep swapping between the two as many times as needed. The contaminated dummy only takes 15 minutes to be sterilised and ready to use again.
One last thought: next time you see a stressed mum desperately trying to clean a dropped dummy, maybe you could let her know about this great safety product too?
