Tips

  • Start with one bottle-feed a day. Make sure baby isn’t hugely hungry for the first one, it’s best if they’re relaxed and happy.
  • Try to set a combination feeding schedule of bottle-feeding or breastfeeding at the same time each day. It doesn’t have to be rigid, just make sure you’re responding to your little one’s “I’m hungry” cues.
  • If you’re returning to work, try to introduce combination feeding to your little one a few weeks before.
  • Make up each formula feed as and when you need it. Check you’re following the manufacturer’s preparation and storage instructions.
  • Ready-to-use formula cartons can be handy for combination feeding.
  • For hygiene reasons, discard unfinished feed as soon as possible. If your little one struggles with bottle-feeding, try different teats until they’re happy.
