Cleaning Specialty nipples/bottles

  1. Hi, was just wondering what you do with the special bottles/nipples that your baby is on (ie: habermann, bionix, Dr Brown's, etc). I just found out that our unit is not allowed to clean them. We are supposed to charge out a new one for each feed. $$$ and wasteful in my opinion.

    We have dish soap and wash them in hot water. I can't see insurance reimbursing for all those bottles!

    Same as nicugal. Kids get ONE Haberman and that's got to last their stay whether it be three days or three months

    We used to clean with dish soap and water, maybe infection control doesn't like it. Just was wondering what others did. Thanks
