Health tips for children



Bottle Feeding


If you decide to bottle feed your baby, use an iron-fortified formula. Formulas usually are made from cow’s milk or other special products to meet the needs of a growing baby. There are three different types of formula:
  • Powdered Formula—mix 1 scoop (provided) of formula with 2 ounces of water.
  • Concentrated Formula—mix 13 ounces of concentrated formula with 13 ounces of water.
  • Ready-to-Feed Formula—simply open the can and pour it into bottles.
Whichever formula you use, follow instructions carefully. Make sure that bottles and nipples are washed and clean.
When you bottle feed your baby, keep the nipple full of formula so he doesn’t swallow air. Hold your baby close with his head up. Don’t leave your baby alone with the bottle propped up, and don’t put him to bed with a bottle. Burp the newborn after every 2 ounces.
