Feeding milk

Feeding milk

The hole in the teat should be big enough to let the milk flow easily. When you turn the bottle upside down, milk should run out at the rate of 30 drops a minute.
It is dangerous to feed your baby when he/she is lying down on his/her bed or sleeping.
During feeding, the infant should be supported in the crook of his/her mother’s arm, with his/her head higher than the rest of his/her body.
Throughout the feed, the teat of the bottle should always be full of milk. This ensures that the baby never swallows air along with the milk. Swallowing air like this can cause the baby to vomit while feeding, or afterwards.
For the baby to have had enough, he/she should not want any more, and 30-40 gr of milk should be left in the bottle.
It is normal for the baby to not drink the same amount of milk at every meal.
After feeding, the baby should be held upright until he/she burps.
