BABY'S FIRST YEAR

T H E flow
BOTTLE FEEDING IS A LIFELINE FOR
PARENTS - BUT IT CAN BE A TRICKY
TECHNIQUE TO MASTER. HERE'S
EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW

B

ottle feeding offers a more flexible option
to breastfeeding. Whether you're mixing
both or just using formula, it's important
to remember that how you feed your baby
is personal and differs with each mum and baby. If
you've never fed a baby before, it can be daunting,
however, you'll soon get used to the technique.

MAK ING U P T H E B OT T LE S

To prepare a bottle of powdered formula, follow the
instructions on the packet carefully. Use boiled tap
water which has been left to cool for no more than
half an hour. Then, pour the exact amount into the
bottle and add the right proportion of formula using
the scoop provided, levelling it off using a clean knife.
Put on the cover and shake until the powder has
dissolved. Test the temperature on the inside of your
wrist, it should just feel warm.

WH O S H O U LD B OT T LE FE E D
YO U R B ABY?

In the early weeks and months of your baby's life,
try to keep the bottle feeds limited to you and one
other trusted person. At the beginning of their lives
babies build up trust and confidence during feeding
and learn what to expect. This is part of healthy
emotional and social attachment.

WH Y IS MY B ABY S O ME T IMES
S ICK AFT E R FE E DING?

Babies can bring up milk after a feed. This can be
stressful but it's perfectly normal. Keep a muslin
square handy. If it happens regularly and your baby
is being violently sick, talk to your health visitor or
GP. Sitting your baby upright on your lap afterwards
might help. Also, double check that the bottle's teat
isn't too big as this can sometimes make them sick.

H OW MU CH MILK DO E S MY
B ABY NE E D?

Each baby differs in how much milk they drink so be
guided by them and don't worry too much. You >
