Is $250 too much to spend on 'the fastest' bottle sterilizer?

I'm expecting my first child in February, and have been looking up various bottle sterilizers. My friend told me that there's a brand new product coming to market early next year that uses UV sterilisation. It says it's 99.9% effective, is about the size of a cup, and takes 30seconds. But she said it will cost about $250. It looks fantastic.. Is this too much to pay for the convenience for travel and space saving? Any thoughts from experienced moms would be helpful! THanks, Martha

I'm with Dove, what happened to good old boiling water, or the sterilization setting on the dishwasher?

Or, disposable bag bottles, where you only need to sterilize the nipples?

Way, way too much of an expense for something that you will use for a little while, and then will toss by the wayside.

If you choose bottle, for whatever reason, there is still no reason to go overboard with all of "the latest" technology. Oftentimes, the tried and true ways that your grandmother and great grandmother used are just as effective, if not better than the "latest and greatest" on the market today.

Yes. It is to expensive, and in my opinion, very VERY unnecessary. Plus, breast is best. Sounds like you want the top of the line for your baby, and there is nothing that compares to breast milk.

The only time my kids bottles were sterilized is when they first came out of the packaging. Afterwards they were washed by hand or in the dishwasher, so yes $250 for something that I would of used once is way to much money.

$250 to sterilize bottles?! What happened to boiling them for free? Good, old dish soap and hot water is really all that is needed, so spending $250 on something that isn't needed and/or can be done for free? I think the answer to that is fairly obvious....
