Preparing a bottle feed for your baby

If you want to start bottle feeding your baby, there are a few things you need be aware of before milk preparation.

  • Always clean and sterilize all bottle feeding parts before each use.
  • Wash your hands thoroughly and make sure your surfaces are clean before handling the sterilized equipment
  • Don’t use abrasive cleaning agents or anti-bacterial cleaners when you’re cleaning bottles and teats
  • To inspect the teat, pull it in each direction
  • Don’t warm milk in a microwave as this may cause uneven heating and could scald your baby
  • Always check the milk temperature before feeding by squirting it onto the inside of your arm
  • Make sure that the bottles are not over-tightened
