When it comes to bottle-feeding, it's all about the nipple. Starting your baby on a bottle can be baffling. Luckily, here are a few tips that will help your newborn begin feeding like a pro.
- Warm the formula/breastmilk - never microwave! Microwaves kill nutrients in the formula or breastmilk.
- Introduce the bottle to your newborn by gently touching the bottle nipple to your baby's cheeks to stimulate rooting reflex.
- Signs of hunger from your baby include sucking on hands, fingers, smacking lips, or rooting reflex.
