There were 8 milky bottles, that had turned a shade of white;
8 milky bottles, that didn’t look quite right!
So when Nimble Babies said, they could make them nice and bright;
Mrs Lighty was keen, to see if they were right!
Ok, ok, I know I should probably leave the rhyming to one of my fellow poet bloggers, but in all seriousness, if there’s one chore that always gets fought over in the Lighty household, as we both try to get out of it, it’s washing Baby Lighty’s bottles. Mr Lighty in particular hates it. Oh how jealous we were when Mummy Hatchy told us that their new dishwasher has a baby bottle cycle! And part of the reason that we hate the bottle washing so much is the fact that even after they’ve been scrubbed to within an inch of their life, they still look a distinctly are-they-clean-or-not(?) shade of milky white.
So when the lovely people at Nimble Babies approached me to try their bottle wash solution with a view to writing a review about it, I jumped at the chance.
Nimble Babies are a company that I’ve been following for a while, interested to see whether the product would make a difference to our bottles. The clinically tested, safe-to-use formula works by detaching milk fat and proteins from the bottles, which in turn helps to stop the build up of bacteria. Having recently replaced the bottle bases, I was hoping that it would work its magic on the bottle teats.
I have to admit that it didn’t seem to make a huge difference to the look of the teats, although after a few days’ use I noticed small ‘clumps’ of milk dislodging from the teats (which made me feel incredibly guilty that the bottles hadn’t previously been as clean as I’d thought) and the bottles and teats do seem to smell a bit fresher. It appears to work better on the hard plastic of the bottle bases than the soft plastic of the teats, and I also used it on the small pots which we use to take formula powder in when we go out, as the fact that you can squirt the product quite acurately meant that I could aim it at the harder-to-reach nooks and crannies of the pots. I did also wonder whether the fact that Baby Lighty has the anti-reflux milk makes a difference to Nimble Babies’ effectiveness, as the milk is definitely a thicker consistency.
Having said that, I do find myself reaching for it every time I lose the Lighty fight and end up washing the bottles. I’m interested to see what sort of result it will have in the long term – watch this space for further updates!
Please note, Nimble Babies sent me their product in return for an honest review. I have not been paid for this post, and the above opinions are my own having used the product.
