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.
