Glass bottles are very durable and may be used for long periods; however they have greater risk of being broken and are quite heavy when you carry it around. They are not suitable for young infant especially newborn ones because they are quite heavy for them.
Plastic bottles are also hard-wearing but are lighter compared to the glass ones. With bottles that have liners, you need not sterilize them every time you use them. Some of these bottles are even intended with an angle that lessens your baby's intake of air while feeding. These are costly and not reusable.
As for the nipples, you can pick whether you prefer to use the rubber or the silicone ones. Silicone can cost you further for the reason that they are more durable than rubber nipples. Make certain though that the nipple you pick for your baby bottle is non-hazardous to keep your babe safe from dangerous chemicals. You ought to also keep in mind that regardless of how hard-wearing the nipples are, you have to change them every 3 months.
As your infant grows older, select nipples with bigger holes, or you can make bigger the holes yourself. This is for the reason that a bigger baby will find it difficult to suck milk from nipples with tiny holes; this can extend the feeding time, make him uneasy, and cause distress while feeding. Also, you have to test out the nipples regularly. When any indication of wear is present, or when the nipple becomes too squashy, change it right away with a fresh one. A broken nipple can be a choking hazard.
Most children are more at ease with formulas that are warm. If your child likes being fed with warmed-up formula milk, you may heat the bottle with the milk inside by placing it under a faucet with flowing hot water or filling up a basin with hot water and soaking the bottle on it. The moment it is heated up, you can start feeding it to your baby at once. If you do it this way, you are guaranteed that the milk is not too hot for your little one to drink.
To make certain that bottled milk has the perfect hotness, you can constantly verify it by putting a few drops of milk on your wrist. In addition, keep away from microwave-heated formula as it can be unsafe. A microwave tends to heat things up unequally. A bottle may be cold to your finger, but the milk within could injure your baby's tongue and throat.
Feeding time can be pleasant for the infant and the mother. Cuddling is significant for the reason that it is a moment for you and your baby to bond and spend quality time.
When you are about done with the feeding, take time to burp him up at the same time as you take a break. This releases all the gas that may have build-up within his stomach. As a universal rule, make an infant burp the moment he has ingested 2 ounces of milk. If this rule is not followed, he may be inclined to wake up in between sleep and whimper because of the need to burp.
