User Review for Dr. Brown's Natural Flow Wide-Neck 8 oz. Bottle- 6 pack
These bottles are great! They are the safest one's I can find out there and I love the fact that they help reduce colic, spit-up, burping, and gas. I also bought the sterilizer to use with them. Safe, durable product!
User Review for Dex Products Dual Action Wipes Warmer
This is the second warmer I have had. The first one was plugged in for 5 years until the warmer plate went out. I loved it so much we had to get another one just like it. I hope this one last that long.
I have twin girls and make all of my own baby food. This easy to use system and recipe book are wonderful. I am experimenting with new foods and my girls love it.
User Review for Sage Spoonfuls-Simple Recipes, Healthy Meals, Happy Babies and Sage Spoonfuls Baby Puree & Blend
This system is wonderful. I am so impressed with the information and recipes! For someone who never cooks, I can’t believe I am now making the majority of my son's food. All the tips are great-instead of having to search the internet, it’s become my go-to guide on how to shop and what to give him. I recommend this system to anyone who wants to make their children fresh nutritious food!
User Review for Baby Trend Diaper Champ Deluxe
Sent this to my daughter in preparation for the arrival of our grand-daughter. She is thrilled...the dogs can't get into it...and it's easy enough for a child to use! And she loves the fact that she can use her own garbage bags.
Types of Formula
It is recommended to start off bottle feeding your baby with a formula based on cow's milk. Formula also comes in three different forms, powder, liquid concentrate and premixed ready-to-feed. There are many nutrients that are found in baby formula, some of which are protein, fat, vitamins A, C, D, E, K, iron and calcium. It is very important than when you are purchasing your baby's formula, you always check the expiration date.
If you are using a liquid or powder formula, follow the directions on the package carefully. Measure each time you prepare the formula. After you combine the formula with the proper amount of cold water, you may heat the bottle to the temperature your baby prefers. Shake the baby bottle so that the formula and water are evenly mixed.
Choosing a Bottle and Nipple
Bottles for feeding come in many different varieties.You can choose between glass, disposable and plastic. While there is no type of bottle that is most recommended, if you choose a glass, check frequently for chips or cracks.
Bottle nipples also come in several different varieties as well as shapes. It is best to try out different kinds to see what type your baby prefers the most. You must also monitor the nipple's condition. Replace the bottle nipple if the formula comes out too quickly, the nipple has become discolored or the nipple has deteriorated in any way.
Sterilizing the Bottle
Bottles and nipples need to be sterilized before use. To sterilize one, place it in a pot of boiling water for 5 minutes or run it though the dishwasher. After it has been sterilized and cooled, it is ready for your baby to use.
Warming the Bottle
The bottle should be placed in boiling water to warm it up before feeding it to your baby. Do not place the bottle itself in the microwave. This can cause it to heat unevenly which can burn your baby.
After the formula has been prepared, the bottle should be kept in the refrigerator for no more than 24 hours. Any formula that has been left over from a feeding should be thrown out immediately.
Amount to Feed Your Baby
During the first month of being born, your baby will usually eat 2 to 3 ounces of formula at each feeding. After that first month, they will typically eat 4 ounces every 3 hours. The amount will gradually increase as your baby grows older.
