Review: Nimble Babies Milk Buster

I mentioned in Isla’s 12 month update that we had just reached 12 months of breastfeeding.  This is something I am really proud of, as there were times at the start where I really struggled. For the last 5 months or so we have been giving Isla a bottle at bedtime. We find that she (mostly) settles really well with it, and these days is often asleep within 5 minutes or so of deciding she’s had enough.

Over time the bottles we use have become cloudy, and can sometimes have a bit of an unpleasant smell to them. We’ve been lucky enough to be able to test out the Nimble Babies Milk Buster, which has been specially developed to prevent, and remove, the build up of milk residue.

A little bit about the technical stuff

It is produced using the safest ingredients made from sugar, amino acids and coconuts, and has a pH balanced to be really close to water. And importantly it doesn’t have a big toxic exclamation mark on the back of the packaging like your washing up liquid does.

One of the things that drives me made about washing up the bottles we use are that they require so much washing and scrubbing and rinsing of parts (Why did Isla have to decide that Dr Brown’s bottles were the ones she liked!?) Nimble Babies Milk Buster cuts down on this significantly.

The instructions say all you need to do is fill the bottle with water,  two squirts of Milk Buster, and give it a scrub with the brush,  quick rinse and done.  Milk Buster didn’t create lots of bubbles so there’s no need to spend ages rinsing of the washing up bubbles which saves so much time and water.

When I first tried out Nimble Babies Milk Buster I noticed straight away that the bottles weren’t as cloudy. I would like to note that I don’t think you’ll ever get your bottles to look perfectly new again, but they are noticeably cleaner, and the funky milk smell had gone.

I got a bit over-excited with the results so cleaned the other 3 bottles we have before taking before and after photos, so I’m afraid you’ll just have to take my word for it!

I did experiment a bit with it to see if I could get the bottles any cleaner, and so I filled the bottles with water, added a couple of sprays of Milk Buster, put the lid on and gave it a quick shake, and then left them over night. In the morning I gave them a brief rinse, and I do think it made them a lot cleaner and clearer.

Nimble Babies Milk Buster is actually great at cleaning anything that is made of plastic – cups, bowls, blenders, smoothie makers, lunch boxes. Give it a try!

    This sounds like a fab product. I have combination fed all 3 of my children and the bottles definitely look tired after a while.
    Well done for continuing with breastfeeding. My youngest is just finishing breastfeeding and I feel very sad that we are stopping after 13 months but he isn’t interested in it any more 🙁

    This sounds great! I stopped breastfeeding at around 7 months and since then, bear has taken to MAM bottles. When he turned 1, we put him onto cows milk which, if you think cleaning formula bottles is bad, cows milk is awful! It goes funny so quickly and stinky and clumpy. I definitely need to get my hands on some of this to help! Xx

    We love the milk Buster, I think the major difference we noticed was the smell. There was zero scent from the bottles after using it which was great as before they could smell a little odd.
