I'm probably going to keep doing it until my bub is around 1 year old, but when is it okay to start not having to worry too much about sterilizing bottles?

I work in a nursery and we usually stop worrying at around 9 months.

Okay cool :) My girl is 5 months now and I wasn't sure when it was okay to stop worrying so much about it.

Thank you!

I only ever sterilized when the bottles were brand new out of the package, and after an illness. 

Between then, I just washed with hot soapy water.

Yeah I always wash them with hot soapy water and then I soak them in boiling water for about 15 minutes to sterilize them :)
