If you choose to bottle feed, use a formula that your doctor recommends.
Tips for Bottle Feeding
- Sterilize new glass bottles and nipples by putting them in boiling water for five minutes. For plastic bottles, put them in the dishwasher or microwave to sterilize them. Then after using the bottles, you can wash them in the dishwasher or by hand.
- You don’t have to warm the bottle for your baby, but if you want to, place the bottle in a bowl of warm water or put it under the tap. DO NOT use the microwave.
- Don’t prop the bottle, always hold your baby to bottle feed. This is a great way to bond with the baby.
