Bottle Time? 3 Tips That Will Help Take the Stress out of Feeding Your New Baby

If this is your first baby, those early feedings can be quite stressful, especially if you're not sure what to do. If you've decided to formula-feed your baby, here are some tips that will help take some of the stress out of feeding time.

Choose the Best Formula for Your Baby

Now that you've decided to introduce formula to your baby, it's important that you choose the best baby formula for your (and their) needs. You might think that all formulas are the same, but that's not the case. There are actually several different options you'll have to choose from. Beyond the powdered vs pre-mixed formulas, there are different types of formula bases. 

Cow's Milk

Cow's milk-based formulas are usually the least expensive types of formula. They're also the most common types of baby formula. However, some babies suffer from milk allergies, which makes cow's milk-based formulas harsh on their delicate tummies.


Soy-based formulas contain no cow's milk. Instead, they contain soy, which is easier on a baby's delicate digestive tract.

Protein hydrolysate

Protein hydrolysate-based formula's contain proteins that have been broken down into smaller particles. These formulas are particularly beneficial for babies who suffer from milk and protein allergies.

Use the Safest Baby Bottles

Once you've chosen the right formula for your baby, you'll need to make sure you choose the safest bottles for them. When it comes to baby bottles, they're not all created equally. Some bottles are manufactured using plastic that can break down over time, allowing babies to digest chemicals that are harmful to them. Not only that, but some bottles are designed for older babies, which allows younger babies to swallow too much liquid or large quantities of air. When choosing bottles, choose those that are listed as being BPA-free. Also, check the age recommendations on any bottles you purchase.

Take Time to Expel the Gas

If your baby is going to be taking a bottle, take time to expel the gas. Babies can swallow a lot of air while they're drinking from a bottle. Unfortunately, if you don't help them expel the gas, your baby may become extremely uncomfortable. The best way to help your baby avoid gas pains is to burp them several times during each feeding. It's also important that you angle the bottle so that they don't get bubbles with their formula. If you see bubbles forming in the formula, adjust the position of the bottle.
