How to Choose the Right Baby Bottle?
Consider the following factors when choosing a baby bottle for your little one.
Anti-Colic Function: Colic is a condition where your baby will start crying for no apparent reason. If your child is crying for 3 hours a day, 3 days a week for at least a week, they may have colic. One of the reasons behind it might be painful gas, i.e., air they might have swallowed while feeding. Opting for bottles with an anti-colic system will allow smooth milk flow and reduced air swallowing.
Round Nipple: If you are transitioning from breastfeeding to bottle feeding, opting for round nipples will help avoid confusion in your baby. Teats that resemble the shape, size and feel of a mother’s nipple will help transition more easily.
Nipples with Different Flow Rates: The bottle’s flow rate depends upon the holes in its nipple. For infants, a slower rate is recommended to mimic the breastfeeding experience. It also helps parents to better control the food intake and prevents overeating in babies. However, as your child grows older a faster flow will be preferred by them.
Frequently Asked Questions
How Many Bottles Should I Buy for a Newborn?
Breastfeeding babies will need 3-4 bottles and infants who are strictly bottle feeding require at least 8-10 bottles a day. Start by testing out small ones (~150ml) from different brands to understand what suits best for your child before buying a style in bulk.
How Often Should I Change Baby Bottles?
In case you are using plastic bottles for feeding, replace them every 4 to 6 months. They are prone to degradation and scratches over time. Silicone alternatives can be changed at 6 months and glass ones can last up to a year if maintained properly. Always remember to read brand recommendations for part replacements for added measures.
Do I Need to Sterilise Bottles Every Time?
If your baby is younger than 2 months, has a weak immune system or was born prematurely; sterilising their bottles is necessary to avoid any infections or reactions. However, once your little one is older and healthier, properly cleaning them after every use is sufficient without sterilisation.
