Lindo Bottle With Handler 250ml Make sure you are sitting comfortably. Enjoy holding your baby and looking into their eyes as you feed them. Bottle feeding is a chance to feel close to your baby and get to know them.
Hold your baby fairly upright for bottle feeds. Support their head so they can breathe and swallow comfortably. Brush the teat against your baby’s lips and, when your they open their mouth wide, let them draw in the teat.
Always give your baby plenty of time to feed.
Keep the teat full
When bottle feeding, keep the teat full of milk, otherwise your baby will take in air. If the teat becomes flattened while you’re feeding, gently poke a clean finger into the corner of your baby’s mouth to release the suction. If the teat gets blocked, replace it with another sterile teat.
Winding your baby
Your baby may need short breaks during the feed and may need to burp sometimes. When your baby does not want any more feed, hold them upright and gently rub or pat their back to bring up any wind. This may only be a small amount.
Throw away unused formula
Don’t forget to throw away any unused formula or breast milk after you have finished feeding your baby.
Go with the flow
Babies differ in how often they want to feed and how much milk they want to take. Feed your baby when they’re hungry, and don’t try to force them to finish a bottle.
