Your baby is a little ball of germs
They pretty much pick up anything and everything and put it in their mouth. This cannot be avoided, it is just your baby being curious and it’s their way of testing their environment. Just this week, I left my son on the floor for less than a minute and by the time I came back he was eating dirt. In no time at all, he had honed in on a plant, slithered across the room, knocked over the plant. The floor was covered in delectable dirt which he proceeded to eat.
The dirt-eating could possibly have been avoided but if it was not the dirt then he would have been eating something else. Eating dirt has both benefits and hazards for your child Most of the time, you cannot stop your child putting things in his or her mouth. The time you do have control is with the food and drinks that you give them.
When you feed your child, you want to make sure that what they eat is as bacteria free as possible. This will help to avoid sickness and upset stomachs. That is why you need to invest in a good steriliser for your child. Babies need a lot of attention and need to be fed up to 8 times per day, sometimes more. If your baby is drinking from a bottle then you should sterilise it every 48 hours.
After I(my wife) did lots of research, I(my wife) decided to buy the NUK 2 in 1 steam steriliser. We have not been disappointed with our purchase. We have twins and we cook fresh meals and prepare multiple bottles each and every day. For twins, I believe the NUK 2 in 1 steriliser is the best steriliser that you can buy. The steriliser is big and bulky but if you have more than one baby then the bigger the better. It can sterilise up to 5 bottles at once. It takes about 15 minutes.
The NUK 2 in 1 steriliser looks after your babies health on two fronts. Firstly, it keeps your baby’s bottles clean and sterilised. Secondly, you can steam your babies food in about 15 minutes. Steamed veggies are super healthy for your baby. It can also steam meat, harder fruits and fish. This is perfect for baby led weaning. Steaming vegetables also means that none of the important vitamins and minerals is lost.
One of my favourite features of the NUK 2 in 1 steriliser is the fact that it saves energy and the potential of you burning down your kitchen. Having twins is a rollercoaster ride. You never really get a minute to yourself. Once you start something one of them will start crying or screaming or knock something over.
Recently, while using another veggie steamer in a pot I nearly burned our apartment down. I turned on the hob, boiled the water and chopped some vegetables. I put them in a steaming bowl and then the babies started crying. The next 40 minutes was spent changing nappies, clothes and cleaning up a mess made by twins. On my return to the kitchen, I was greeted by a cloud of smoke and a melted steaming bowl.
Had I used the NUK steamer this would not have happened. It automatically turns off after 15 minutes. This means that you cannot burn your house down. Not only will it save your life but it will also save on energy. The automatic element will save you money on electricity.
Some say that it is not the size of the steriliser but what you do with it. Those people are wrong. The size of your steriliser does matter. This is especially true if you have multiples or a big family. We have twins which means we need lots and lots of bottles. Lots and lots of bottles mean lots and lots of sterilising. With the Nuk 2 in 1 Steriliser, you can sterilise five bottles at once. The Steamer also has a top shelf where you can steriliser soothers and other baby products. It will take up a lot of space on your countertop but it is worth it.
The Nuk 2 in 1 Steriliser will save you time on two fronts. It will save you time on sterilising your bottles instead of having to wait 2 hours for the dishwasher. You can just pop it on and your babies bottles will be sterilised in about 20 minutes. You can also steam your vegetables in about 15 or 20 minutes. If you are like me and love to save even more time then you can steam your bottles on the bottom rack and your veggies on the top.
The Nuk 2 in 1 steriliser is an amazing piece of kit on many levels. There are great steamers and sterilisers that you can buy separately but why buy two machines when you can buy two. Although it is quite big and bulky, you can still save space as you do not need to buy two machines.
With the Nuk 2 in 1 steriliser not only will you be saving space and time but you will also be saving energy. As I mentioned above, I nearly burned our house down from using a steamer in a pot on the stove. You do not have to worry about that with the Nuk 2 in 1 steriliser. You fill it up with water, turn it on and it turns off automatically when it is finished.
It’s a lifesaver, literally – The Nuk Steriliser Review.
Okay, I am being a bit sensationalist here but it could save your life. Most parents of newborns walk around like forgetful zombies as a result of their lack of sleep. Forgetting to turn off a hob is a real threat to you and your families safety. If you are steaming vegetable then the NUK 2 in 1 steriliser could actually save your life by turning off automatically when it is finished.
It is great for baby led weaning – The Nuk Steriliser Review.
Between 6 months and year, your baby will develop teeth and drink less from the breast and the bottle. You will start to feed them homemade or bottled baby food. There will then come a stage when your baby will start grabbing from your plate and they will want to feed themselves. This is the time for baby led weaning. The NUK 2-1 is perfect for this. You can steam an array of vegetables in 20 minutes and your baby will be happy to be occupied by feeding themselves. My twins particularly love steamed carrots and parsnips.
It is healthy – The Nuk Steriliser Review.
As your baby grows you want to ensure that they get as much healthy and nutritious food as possible. Steaming food is one of the healthiest ways to cook your babies food and it provides many benefits. Steaming your babies food will maintain a lot of the vitamins and nutrients that may be lost from other forms of cooking. It will also allow you to prepare your food that will be of a perfect texture for your baby to eat. When steam correctly it will be both hard enough to hold without crumbling and soft enough for your baby to chew.
It’s affordable – The Nuk Steriliser Review.
If you consider how much time, effort and space you will save then this is a very affordable piece of kit for you and your baby. Some of the sterilisers are overpriced and some are very cheap. There is a great German saying ” Wer billig kauft, kauft zweimal”. This translates as if you buy cheap you buy twice/double. The Nuk 2 in 1 is reasonably priced an worth the investment.
