New Baby Feeding Tips

 

Bottle Feeding Tips
  1. Ensure flow is about one drop a second
  2. Never use a bottle you prepared more than 48 hours before
  3. Use your steriliser every time
  4. Don't use bottles that you left out of the fridge for too long
  5. Your partner can feed the baby as well
  6. You can use an electric steriliser for over 12 months, and it saves you a lot of time
Breast Feeding Tips
  1. If you plan on breast feeding only, you may still want to have bottles and nipple on hand
  2. Even if you don't produce enough milk at first don't give up breast feeding
  3. You will produce more milk as the baby feeds more
  4. Breastfeeding moms may want to prepare one or two bottles with breast milk for the night. Dads can then feed the baby
  5. If your baby is quite fussy when breast feeding, avoid using a pacifier until he got used to breast feeding.
