If you have the impression that opting for feeding with the bottle you have escaped the problems and difficulties specific to breastfeeding the baby, you are bitterly mistaken. And the bottle implies some confusion and problems for most of the moms without experience: choosing the right tea, correct milk preparation, adequate heating etc. Here are some tricks that help make feeding your baby easier!
Prepare fx milk bottle before milk time
When you have a schedule for baby's meals, it is easy to prepare your milk just a few minutes before meal time.
The baby becomes irritated and cries when he is hungry and will not have the patience to wait until you prepare the milk formula.
Heat the bottle in hot water
Avoid microwaves in bottle warmer. There is a risk of cheating and milk frying, and the glass being cold or vice versa, giving the milk too cold, while the glass seems heated.
To ensure that the milk is properly heated and that the temperature on the glass is the same as the temperature inside, heat it gradually under a continuous stream of hot water.
Even with water heating, you should always check the temperature of the milk on your wrist, in order not to risk the baby getting cold.
Always use boiled or cold water
In preparing the milk it is advisable to use boiled or sterilized water. Tap water can be full of impurities with which the baby's immune and digestive system cannot handle it yet, because it is quite immature.
Do not reuse remaining milk
If you have made more milk than you should or the baby has lost less, throw it away. Never leave it on the table at room temperature to reuse it. Bacteria in the baby's saliva begin to multiply rapidly at this temperature and you risk getting the baby sick.
With the help of the nutrition program it will be easy for you to figure out how much your baby is eating at a table, to anticipate such situations and not to have to throw milk.
Babies fed with the bottle should also be helped to regurgitate
Even if you talk more about regurgitation in association with breastfeeding, it does not mean that breastfeeding is an exception.
Regurgitation is essential in babies and should be encouraged by holding the baby upright and leaning slightly on your shoulder, while gently beating him on the back. It helps to eliminate the air swallowed with milk and to prevent colic, both uncomfortable for the baby and for you.
Choose the right nipple
The nipples for baby bottles are made by size, depending on the age, but also the comfort that it provides during feeding. Try several types and sizes and see which one is "best" before deciding on which bottle to adopt.
Follow the signs that the nipple is too small or too wide. Your baby may frequently drown while the pope, if the nipple is too large and the milk is flowing abundantly. Turn the bottle upside down, and if you notice that the milk is flowing, instead of dripping, it means that the nipple hole is too big.
