How do I sterilise my Philips Avent soother?

Published on 25 January 2023
You can sterilise an Avent soother by boiling it in water or using the microwave. Find out below how to do so.

Sterilise by boiling in water.

You can sterilise any soother by boiling it in water for five minutes.

Sterilise in the microwave (only ultra soft and ultra air soothers).

You can sterilise the Avent ultra soft and ultra air soothers in the microwave using the carry case that comes with the soother.
Follow the instructions below:
  1. Rinse the soother under cold tap water. Add 25 ml/0.9 fl. oz. of water to the carry case.
  2. Put the soother in the case and close the lid.
  3. Put the case in the microwave. Turn the microwave on for three minutes at 700 W – 1000 W.
  4. Take the case out of the microwave and let it cool down for five minutes.
  5. Pour the water out of the case.
Avent soothers other than the ultra soft and ultra air soothers (for example, Classic or Freeflow) cannot be sterilised in the carry case. The Classic and Freeflow soothers may get damaged if sterilised in the case.
