Bottle Feeding

BOTTLE FEEDING

What are the advantages of Bottle feeding?

New infant formulas, bottles, and teats appear on the market regularly, all with the aim of making bottle feeding as convenient and as similar to breastfeeding as possible, however our practice encourages breast feeding even if only for a short time.

When you are bottle feeding, there are a couple of essential points to bear in mind.  The formula should be properly made up so that your baby gets correct amounts of both nutrients and water, and your baby should be able to draw milk at a comfortable rate.  You can make up one bottle at a time, mixing it in a bottle according to the manufacturer’s instructions, or a batch of several.
