In brief: Try now

If you are living in an area with uncertain water quality or using untested water sources for the bottles, by all means steralize.
If you have access to certified water supply, hot water for cleaning & a good bottle brush, you never need to steralize at all. Spend time with baby, not doing busy work cause grandma did it that way.
