Put on the cover to the pail, set the pail on the stove, and allow the water to boil for half an hour. To remove the rack, lift it from the pail by means of the two handles, take it to the sink, invert it (now Fig. SO.--Bottle-guard Fas-Fig. 51.--Inverted Bottle-rack, tened in Position by Pins.

We may now set the rack aside, still in the inverted position, and allow the bottles to drain thoroughly. The bottles have been boiled, removed from the pail, and drained without being touched by the hand. Let the bottles remain in the rack until wanted for the new feeding.

The six-ounce bottles are far more convenient to use when baby is very young; when he reaches six months, the eight-ounce bottles are best. more
