Pacifier Steriliser by My Tu-Tu

My girl still needs her pacifier in order to sleep but she has this bad habit and rubbing the tip of her pacifier all over her face. The rubbing action often causes a lot of rashes on her face due in part to the abrasion and to the many bacteria on the pacifier.

It is always dropped on the floor, kicked around and hidden in the corner. No matter how much we wash it, my mum-in-law still find that it is just not clean enough.

So I was actually very happy when the folks at My Tu-Tu sent me their steriliser to try it out.

My Tu-Tu Portable Steriliser

To be honest, I had expected it to be a lot bigger so I was very surprised to see that it was not only as small as an apple but lightweight too.

But then when I tried to cut it open, I encountered the first drawback of the packaging.

Cut up instructions sheet

Since the instructions sheet was stuck in between the packaging, it was only after I cut it to open it that I realised that I had cut it up in the process. Ok maybe I'm a dumbass but there should be some sort of line somewhere that says "cut here to open" for dummies like me. Thankfully it's nothing that some sticky tape can't handle.

My Tu-Tu is really light and portable.

Got baby girl to model for me.. natural isn't she?

It is made to accommodate all standard pacifiers and feeding bottle nipples/teats and can eliminate up to 99.9% of harmful germs in just 6-8 minutes. It's also safe, hygenic, environmentally friendly and most of all, very easy to use.

First, you have to insert 2 AAA batteries (not included) into the top compartment of the steriliser.

Inserting the batteries and pacifier

Then open the middle compartment (where the UV tube is), place the pacifier inside and close it up. Next, press the button located at the top of the steriliser..

..and hold for a few seconds until you see a red light start blinking. Let go of your finger and press the button again to start the sterilisation process.

The UV tube will then light up and the whole process takes approximately 6-8 minutes. Then all you need to do is place it at a safe place (out of reach of children) and wait. It will switch off automatically once the sterilisation process is completed.

The UV Tube has a life of at least 8000 hours and has been verified by CE & SGS.

The thing I like about this sterilisation method as compared to steaming it in hot water is that the shape of the pacifier will not be changed.

My Tu-Tu can also be used for feeding bottle nipples as well but as baby girl has not been drinking from a milk bottle since 1 year ago, I can't demonstrate it for you. You can however go take a look at how Klessis does it with her little girl's milk bottle.

All in all, I really like this product and will keep using it because it is just so convenient! I'm happy that I don't have to worry about her dropping her pacifier on the floor and wondering how I'm going to clean it. Now all I have to do is pop it into My Tu-Tu and it's done. Will definitely bring it with me when we travel to Shenzhen next week =)
