When the baby is born, many thoughts of the parents are related to the feeding of the new member of the family. Although the best diet whenever possible is breastfeeding, some women are forced or choose to feed their child with a bottle. But, how can we choose the best bottle for the baby?
The bottle for the baby
The bottle is used to feed the baby with formula milk (or breast milk previously extracted with the breast pump), and to match the one we choose for our child, it must meet certain requirements. You have to take into account some aspects when choosing the bottle in question, although many babies reject some according to the teat because they are not the best to adapt to your mouth.
It can also happen that if there has been previous breastfeeding, the baby rejects during the first feeding the baby bottle, but when we find the one that best suits him, the process will be easier.
Generally, it is necessary to choose a bottle that is functional so that it is not too complicated to wash, and also that it is simple to sterilize. In addition, trying different models or teats will help us to know exactly what our baby is demanding.
