How do I sterilise my Philips Avent soother?

Published on 25 January 2023

You can sterilise the Philips Avent soother by boiling it in water for 5 minutes. You can also sterilise certain Philips Avent soothers using the microwave. Find out more below.

Sterilise your Philips Avent soother using the microwave

You can sterilise the Philips Avent Ultra soft soother and the Philips Avent Ultra air soother in the microwave using the carry case that comes with your soother.


  1. Add 25 ml (0.9 fl. oz.) of water
  2. Place well-rinsed soothers into the case
  3. Microwave at 750–1000 W for 3 minutes
  4. Leave to cool for 5 minutes
  5. Pour out water

Note: Philips Avent soothers other than the Ultra soft and Ultra air soothers cannot be sterilised using the carry case.



Note that other Philips Avent pacifiers cannot be sterilised in the steriliser/carrying case. We recommend using a glass plate or a ceramic dish underneath the steriliser/carrying case.

After sterilisation

After sterilisation, allow to cool for at least 5 minutes, and squeeze out any trapped water from the pacifier.
