Hi hi,

My hubby and I just promoted! 
We are proud Papa and Mama to our little baby boy now :) 
It is indeed overwhelming being a first time dad and mum..
it is especially so because we don’t have elder siblings in the family to turn to for help 
(we are the eldest at home and first to have a baby as well)..

We went to numerous baby fairs as well as seminars to know more about the latest products in the market, learn about breastfeeding etc as well.. 

One thing I realize is, time have changed!!
Due to technological advancement, our lives are so much easier now!!

If there is one thing that I will recommend all mums and dads to invest in.. 
That will be an UV sterilizer!! It definitely help to make your life so much easier!!

Why need to sterilize?
Young babies (below 1 year old) are more susceptible to infection and illnesses as their immune system is not fully developed. Washing using soap and cold water is insufficient to remove the majority of germs and bacteria that might be harmful to babies. Thus, it is important to sterilize anything that goes into baby’s mouth or use to feed the baby.

In the past..
People sterilize bottles using boiling water, tablet sterilizing or using a steam sterilizer.  

Boiling water is one of the most economical of sterilizing, however it is the most time consuming and water wasting.

As for tablet sterilizing, some tablet will cause the bottles to have a weird smell after sterilizing.. personally it bothers me.. I will end up washing the bottle using tap water to get rid of the smell..

As for steam sterilizer, it is somehow similar to the boiling water method. 
Instead of using water you are using the hot steam to sterilize your bottles. 
However, something I hate about steam sterilizer is, the water will drip all over the place when you open the cover and you have to add water to sterilize each time you need to use it! So troublesome! Most steam sterilizers don’t have the drying function too! Can you imagine, wet bottles, breast pump parts?! Have to dry using a cleaning cloth.. Is the cloth you use clean? If not you have to sterilize your bottles and pump parts again? Such a hassle..

In recent years..
UV sterilizer are gaining popularity due to the massive advantages over boiling water, tablet sterilizing and steam sterilizer.. my hubby say some new aeroplane got built in UV to disinfect the water wor..

Some of the reasons why use UV sterilizer..
1.   UV is more effective in sterilizing than boiling, tablet, steam sterilizing
2.   Lower power consumption (~80W for UV vs ~500W for steam)
3.   Can sterilizer more items (UV has more capacity than steam, boiling depends on pot size)
4.   Can sterilizer more types of items (UV can sterilize heat sensitive and non-water resistant items)
5.   Less maintenance (Steam and boiling need to wash and dry the components regularly, else will have mould and rust. But UV just need to replace the UV lamp every 6 months to a year, and clean the filter if any)
6.   Less potential hazard (can be scalded if using steam or boiling, but not UV)
7.   Drying function (most UV have, while most steam does not have)

Why choose Haenim?

Care and Maintenance

Once a week: Wipe inside clean with a clean damp cloth. Do not use any detergent or chemicals.
Once a month: Wash the filter located at the back of the steriliser. Simple rinse under water. Do not scrub or rub hard as the natural filter may tear. Gently dab dry with clean cloth.
Once a year: Change UV lamps to ensure maximum sterilising power. 

Comparing to other brands..
