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 sterilise all bottle feeding parts before each use.
Wash your hands thoroughly and make sure your surfaces are clean before handling the sterilised 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
