Information on Using Baby Bottles

Using Baby BottlesIf you are planing on bottle feeding your new born or you already are bottle feeding your infant it is important that you handle the bottles correctly to avoid your baby from being unhealthy.  You want to have a healthy and a happy baby.  Keep your baby’s bottles clean and stored in the fridge to prevent any harmful bacteria or germs that could cause stomach problems.

Wash all bottles, nipples, and bottle caps in warm water with a mild soap, or in the dishwasher.  When you have washed the bottles rinse then and out them in boiling water for five minutes prior to filling them with formula or breast milk.

Prior to mixing the baby’s formula you should boil the water that you will be using and let it cool.  This takes the additives out of the water that could make your baby sick.  When you use a new clean bottle use it one time only then it will need to be cleaned again.

If you need to take any formula out with your baby, be sure that it is drank by your baby within an hour if it is mixed or if it is breast milk.  You could also use powered formula if you formula feed your infant and take the boiled water separately this will allow you to mix the formula as it is needed.

Any formula that is opened will not keep very long.  If it is a bottle of unused formula it is good for 24 hours after it has been opened.  Ready use formula that is opened is good for 48 hour after it has been opened.  Power formula is good for thirty days after it has been opened.  If your baby has not drank all the formula in their bottle, you need to throw the unused portion away, germs will go into the leftover milk.
