MILTON

    History of Milton
    Milton has been used in hospitals and homes for over 60 years and has a fascinating history.
    Originally, the Milton solution was used in the First World War as a disinfectant. It was taken into the trenches to treat burns to the skin, as well as the effects of gas and chemical attacks.
    The Milton Pharmaceutical Company was founded in 1916 and the products take their name from the famous poet John Milton (1608-1674), author of Paradise Lost.
    After the First World War, Milton continued to be used as a general antiseptic, disinfectant and food preservative, as well as being used widely in surgical procedures in hospital.
    During the late 1940’s there was a widespread outbreak of gastroenteritis, which led to the death of 4,500 babies under the age of 1 year*. The outbreak was traced back to poorly cleaned baby feeding equipment.
    At that time, the only way to sterilise bottles was to boil them for a few minutes in a saucepan, and the Ministry of Health approached the manufacturers of Milton to develop a safe and easy way to sterilise baby equipment. It was then that the Milton Method was born and it has been credited with saving many babies lives over the years.
    The Milton Method is still widely accepted by hospitals as a superior sterilisation method to boiling and is supported by extensive clinical research and data. Over 90 years of extensive use are evidence that Milton is not just easy and convenient, but also highly effective and reliable.

    20130405-181445.jpg I was lucky enough to recieve the combi steriliser for review . I had two options white or purple and has I have a little girl I opted for the purple

    The combi steriliser gives you two options to sterilise – cold water method using milton sterilising tablets ( which are included in box )

    20130405-181752.jpg
    This method takes 15 minutes
    Or the microwave method which is what I prefer – this takes from 2 to 6 minutes depending on microwave power
    It’s so easy to use , the unit is very spacious and easily held my 6 wide neck bottles plus teats , lids and a few spoons too

    20130405-182059.jpg
    Simply pop items in with 200ml of cold water , in microwave for few minutes and all done
    It has a innovative pop up safety vent which allows some pressure to form inside combi . When enough steam is generated the vent pops up to release pressure

    20130405-182406.jpg this means more heat is created inside and therefore better sterilisation and protection for baby .
    Contents stay sterile for 24 hours unopened or kept in sterilising solution .
    It is spill free and has a strong carry handle for portability
    I was previously using a different microwave steriliser but this is much better as it holds much more and sterilises much better meaning Izebella is better protected .
