BOTTLE-FEEDING: essential tips for dads who bottle-feed their babies
Top 5 Tips for Bottle-feeding
Help out with bottle-feeding as much as you can. Not only will it offer some great father-baby bonding time, it will give your partner a much-needed break, especially in the evenings after you get back from work.
From Danny R.
Avoid using the microwave to warm up bottles of milk. Microwaves often heat liquids unevenly creating hotspots that could burn your baby’s mouth.
From James F.
Wear old t-shirts when bottle-feeding or burping your baby. This prevents your good clothes getting covered in the inevitable milk and sick stains.
From Keith W.
Put a bib on your baby before each bottle-feed. This will catch milk, sick and dribble, saving you multiple clothes changes during the feed.
From Steve V.
Don’t force your baby to finish a bottle of milk. Babies differ when it comes to how often and how much they want to drink. So just feed them on-demand, as and when they get hungry. If you do manage to force the milk down them, they’ll probably just puke it up again later.
