Dr Browns baby bottles
Cleaning Dr Browns bottles is very easy to do. You just have to have the necessary tools to get the job accomplished, and the skills to get it done right.

Baby bottles come in different forms, shapes, colors, sizes, and functionalities, all designed to meet babies' different feeding needs. One of the popular baby bottle products in the market today is Dr Browns Natural Flow bottle known for its vent system design that locks-in essential nutrients in the milk and help reduce colic, spit-up, burping, and gas in babies.

Moms who opted to buy Dr Browns bottles for their babies face a challenge in cleaning the various parts. Cleaning the vent inserts became the most challenging task because they tend to accumulate milk residue and develop blackish stuff in the crevices if not cleaned properly. Using the dishwasher is the more convenient means of cleaning the bottles and the parts, but hand washing them is the best way to clean these bottles.

Things You Will Need

Bottle brush with a nipple cleaner

Dr Browns thin cleaning brush

Dishwashing soap


Warm water

Step 1

Disassemble the bottle parts right away as soon as the baby is done feeding, and rinse the parts with warm water. This is a good practice to reduce milk residue from sticking inside the bottle, vents, and vent reservoirs, making it harder to clean later on.

Step 2

Fill the sink or basin with warm water and mix it with dishwashing soap. Soak the bottle parts for at least five minutes.

Step 3

Wet a sponge and squeeze a small amount of dishwashing liquid on it. Clean the exterior part of Dr Browns bottles. Scrub the bottle collars, caps, and disks as well. Rinse well with warm water and allow to dry.

Step 4

Use a bottle brush to clean the inside of the bottles. Make sure that no residue is left especially on the bottom. Rinse well with warm water and allow to dry.

Step 5

Insert the thin cleaning brush into the vent reservoirs to remove any milk residue that sticks inside. Rinse thoroughly with warm water and allow to dry.

Step 6

Insert the thin cleaning brush into the small holes of the vent inserts to remove the milk residues. Use the nipple cleaner to further clean the surface of the vent. Rinse thoroughly with warm water and allow to dry.

Step 7

Use the nipple cleaner to clean the silicone bottle nipples. Scoop out any residues on the base and neck of the nipples. Rinse thoroughly with warm water and allow to dry. Array

Tips & Warnings

Sterilize Dr Browns bottles as often as you can to prevent bacteria from building up.
