Preparing Baby Bottles

It is important for parents to prepare baby bottles as follows:

  • Pour liquid formula in bottle OR measure & mix dry formula and water in bottle.
  • Place bottle in an insulated pouch for temperature control.
  • Use plastic bottles, not glass, to prevent breakage.
  • Label bottles with child’s first and last name.

Bottle preparation by parents insures that babies are fed the right amount of formula.  Labeling insures that each child is given his/her own bottle.
