How you feed your baby is up to you. Breastfeeding is best for you and your baby. But there may be reasons why you will need to feed your baby infant formula.
Remember always to hold your baby while bottle feeding. Never put the bottle in your baby’s mouth and leave her.
Here are the three basic types of formula:
- Powdered formulas that are mixed with water
- Liquid concentrates that are mixed with water
- Pre-mixed formulas ready to put in the bottle or already in ready-to feed bottles
When you mix powdered formulas or liquid concentrate formulas, follow the package directions exactly and add just the right amount of clean water. Be sure not to add too much or too little water. If the formula is premixed and ready-to-feed, do not add any water. Talk to your doctor about the best formula for your baby.
