How to Properly Use a Bottle to Feed a Newborn Baby?

Sep 16,2022

Ⅰ. Clean and sterilize the anti-colic feeding bottle

1. First put the yoboo bottle and nipple in boiling water for about 5 minutes to sterilize, or use special sterilizer to sterilize.

2. Wash your hands and take out the sterilized feeding bottle. According to the instructions on the formula milk package, pour an appropriate amount of warm water at 40-60°C into the feeding bottle.

Ⅱ. Add an appropriate amount of milk powder to the anti-colic feeding bottle

The concentration of the milk powder prepared must be based on the instructions on the package. If the formula is too thick, it will not be digested and will increase the burden of gastrointestinal digestion; if the formula is too thin, it will not ensure sufficient nutrition.

You can use the measuring spoon that comes with the milk powder, fill it with scraping, do not flatten it deliberately, and count the number of spoons added during the process of adding milk powder to the newborn anti-colic feeding bottle, so as not to forget the amount added.

Ⅲ. Shake the anti-colic feeding bottle

Hold the bottle tightly and shake it from side to side to slowly melt the formula (if you shake it up and down, it will create foam, and the first few bites your baby takes will be bubbles).

Put on the pacifier, turn the bottle upside down, and check whether the flow rate is appropriate. The criteria for judging the flow rate of milk for 0-6 months old baby are as follows: The flow rate of milk should be that the milk can drip continuously drop by drop when the neonatal anti-colic feeding bottle is upside down, generally with 1 drop/second as the standard.

If it takes a few seconds for the milk to drip out of the bottle, it means that the aperture of the pacifier is too small, It will be very difficult for the baby to suck up. If the milk flows out in a linear shape after the bottle is inverted, it means that the aperture is too large and the baby is in danger of choking.

Sometimes, screwing the bottle cap too tightly will also slow down the flow rate, and the air will form a negative pressure in the bottle, which will flatten the nipple and make it very difficult for the baby to suck up. into the bottle to replenish post-pumping space.

Put a few more drops of milk on the inside of your arm, and judge whether the temperature of the milk in the anti-colic feeding bottle is appropriate. If you think it is not hot, don't taste it with your mouth.

If the water is too hot, it will destroy the nutrients of the milk powder and scald the baby's mouth; if it is too cold, it may stimulate the baby's stomach and cause indigestion or diarrhea.

The mother chooses a comfortable position to sit in, with the baby's head resting on an arm, which should be able to adjust the height at any time to improve the flow of milk.

And let the baby snuggle on the chest, and the mother's chest to chest, abdomen to abdomen, this intimate physical contact can bring a sense of security and comfort to the baby.

When feeding, keep the bottle tilted at all times, so that the nipple is always full of milk, to prevent air in the front of the anti-colic feeding bottle, to prevent the baby from inhaling the air in the bottle when breastfeeding, causing milk overflow, do not let the baby lie down to suck milk, this will also help spill milk easily.
