Anyhow, I started out boiling their bottles and nipples (they were latex, then)
I stopped when I accidentally boiled the pot dry (probably had apnea then)
Do people sterilize baby stuff now?--the nipples are silicone--like our interface parts.
I might consider using the steamer, but it didn't work that well on edamame.
I'd boil the water, turn off the heat, let it sit for a minute or so and then drop the parts in. Or make something to hold the parts up from the bottom of the pot if you want to actually boil the parts.

Be sure it is COMPLETELY dry before using again. A blow dryer may be used. Don't boil, but do the next best thing.
