Organic baby formula is the best option for you if in case you are not able to breastfeed your little one. When you choose organic baby formula over the normal ones, your baby will have many benefits such as: (1) you will avoid growth hormones; (2) not a hint of antibiotics, pesticides, and fertilizers; (3) and lastly, there’s no possible steroids in your baby’s formula.
Some people still prefer to use the non-organic baby formula – either which, it is still a good idea to become familiar and gain knowledge with the best and healthiest choice for your baby. Just to be prepared in case your infant doesn’t want the normal feed.
Listed below are some of the helpful tips when using a baby organic formula:
- As long as your newborn still wants his milk, feed him. However, don’t force him to finish a bottle if he doesn’t one want anymore, because there’s a possibility that they are going to vomit – you don’t want that to happen to your baby, right? Newborns usually drink about two or three ounces every after two to three hours.
- Always read the instructions. If you don’t have any idea on how much water to add to your baby’s formula, check the box for any recommendations. Adding too little water may lead to diarrhea and dehydration.
- If your baby has a problem with spitting up, be careful on how much you’re feeding your baby. To prevent the chance of vomiting, always keep your baby upright after feeding him. Furthermore, limit any active playtime after feeding as well.
- For some safety precautions, never ever your baby’s bottle in the microwave as they heat unevenly, heating some parts of the liquids which may cause burns in your little one’s mouth. There’s another way for you to use your microwave, it is by heating a mug of water and then place your infant’s bottle in that mug for a minute or two to make your child’s milk warm. Always remember to check the temperature on your skin before giving the bottle to your baby to ensure that he will not suffer any mild burns.
And lastly, don’t forget to sterilize your baby’s bottle and nipples in a boiling water for about five minutes or so. There will time where the nipples will change its colors, but they are still fine to use – it is normal. You can wash them by hand or by brush in a hot, soapy water and then rinse it very well.
