Now this is another clever idea from Milton, a portable steriliser for babies soothers. With my cousin recently having her little born born needing life saving surgery and then spending a good while in the special care unit, I  was brought back up to date with the value of hygiene, the spray dispensers on the wall were inside and outside the hospital rooms, his soothers needed to promote his sucking reflex were always in sterilising solution.

We all know a dropped dummy can pick up a host of bacteria, I have seen and know many a Mum who has picked a dummy up and sucked it to give a supposed clean, I have always thought it was pretty gross, this is for personal reasons, my Mum used to spit on her hanky to clean my face. I hated it and it reminds me of that a little.

I am now  glad I don't like the practice as I was unaware Thrush, can be passed on to baby from a mother’s mouths by an unsterile soother.

The new Mini stops this dilemma and keeps the soother in a solution of sterilising liquid. They are bright and easily attached to the buggy while out and about.

My friend tried this out for me she said she thought it was a fabulous idea, the £6.99 was good value as not only did it work, but gave her peace of mind. In fifteen minutes the dropped soother was ready for use.  She added that she would like to have two of the Mini's as this would help with a prolific thrower of dummies!

The unforeseen bonus she felt was the steriliser when attached to the buggy, kept her little boy entertained almost like a pram mobile.
