Milton Solo Travel Steriliser Giveaway

The one thing I used to dread when going away with this huge brood is the packing, especially when they were younger, my only problem now is the size of each of them, means we need LOTS of luggage to transport them.

When  they were smaller they also needed lots of stuff, especially at the time when they were weaning, I can remember when we first took Xene away to Berwick-upon-Tweed aged 5 months, back in those days it was recommended that BF babies also started solids at 4 months old, but it also meant that you still had to sterilise EVERYTHING, (much easier now it’s 6 months and you only need to pop all the utensils in the dishwasher!) so we had a huge, full size steriliser to take away with us, thankfully the clever people at Milton have developed the Solo Travel Steriliser.

Solo Travel Steriliser

The Milton Solo Travel Steriliser is 2-in-1 microwave or cold water steriliser, ideal for sterilising when travelling or away from home. It cleans and sterilises bottles, teethers, plastic toys, breastfeeding equipment and other small baby equipment from 2 minutes in the microwave and in 15 minutes for cold water. A portable, lightweight, practical way to sterilise – whether at home, a day trip out, overnight stay or away on holiday!  Its unique ‘lay flat’ design fits in most microwaves. The patented vent technology means the Solo retains more heat for better sterilisation, automatically releasing excess steam gently and safely.

So for all of you that still have little ones, and are going away soon, then enter the giveaway to win yourself one.
