User Review for Safety 1st Easy Saver Diaper Pail
I love this product. For the price it has stood the test of time. This diaper pail is very easy to use and lasted 4 years. I was still using this for my four year old (who refuses to go potty at home) when we had our second little boy 6 months ago. I was unable to find a replacment anywhere till now.
User Review for Carter's Big Dot Tote Diaper Bag
I purchased this exact diaper bag when I was pregnant with my 3rd baby in 2007. I thought the bag was very gender neutral and went with it. The bag is well made, it is large enough to hold all of the essential baby care items as well as a few extras. It was neutral enough my husband didn't mind carrying it either. It has held up so well in fact, that we are using it yet again on our new baby boy. He is due in early November.
User Review for Carter's 5 pc. Diaper Bag Set
this appears to be a quality product for the money. I have not began using it yet since our baby hasn't been born yet, but I love the look. Its very fashionable, practical and reasonably priced.
User Review for Dr. Brown's Microwave Steam Sterilizer
This is a great durable product. It fits four of my wide neck bottles and its all BPA free. I just pop it in the dishwasher to clean it and I'm all set with safe, clean bottles! I also found the best price for it here at BabyAge.com
User Review for Dr. Brown's Natural Flow Wide-Neck 4 oz. Bottle- 4 pack
I love the fact that there are no BPA, PVC, Lead or Phthalates in these bottles. They also help to maintain Vitamins! My doctor actually recommended them and I found the best price and super fast shipping at BabyAge. Thank You!
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.
