8 Misunderstandings about the Use of Baby Bottles

May. 23, 2020

Baby bottles and pacifiers are close friends after the baby is born. Parents must use them well and let them accompany the baby's healthy growth! The following 8 misuses of baby bottle pacifiers should be avoided by parents!

Baby bottles have a period of use, especially plastic bottles. After a period of use, the bottle body will be fuzzy and misty due to brushing and oxidation, and it is not easy to remove milk dirt. Replace every month or so, but if the surface is damaged or worn, you should replace it immediately. The nipple is a consumable. After long-term use, it will become hard and deteriorate, and during the cleaning process, it may also make the nipple larger, resulting in the risk of choking milk when the baby drinks milk, so it is recommended to replace it about 3 months Once, but when it is damaged, it must be replaced regardless of whether the time is up. The feeding bottle manufacturer introduces you to some misunderstandings of the use of feeding bottles.

Myth 1: Let your baby suck the bottle

Vacuuming a baby bottle can easily swallow a lot of air, causing paroxysmal intestinal cramps and abdominal pain. Medically called "swallowing disease". There are also situations where the baby will have swallowing.

If the baby sucks the mother's nipple too quickly, and makes the sphincter of the mother's nipple excessive tension, the milk is too slow; or the nipple is too short, or even sunken so that the baby cannot suck milk. These will allow the baby to swallow a lot of air.

In order to prevent swallowing, in addition to not allowing the baby to empty the bottle, each breastfeeding time should not be too long, about 20 minutes. Regardless of breastfeeding or artificial feeding, remember to hiccup your baby every time you feed.

Myth 2: Let the baby lie down and drink the bottle

The seemingly comfortable posture can easily make the baby's ears inflamed. Because lying down and drinking milk makes it easy

It enters the Eustachian tube, causing inflammation. In addition, lying down for a long time to drink milk, it is likely to develop into a "ground pack". The baby should be held as straight as possible, or in a semi-upright position.

Myth 3: Let your baby sleep with a bottle

Sugary substances such as milk and juice can produce acidic products after fermentation. If the baby contains a bottle of milk for a long time, it will undoubtedly immerse the small teeth in acid for a long time. It is very easy to get dental caries. Once the baby is asleep, the mother should take the bottle away immediately.

Myth 4: Let your baby use a bottle immediately after birth

If you plan to breastfeed, do not use a bottle at first. The use of feeding bottles can easily cause confusion to the baby's nipples and interfere with the baby's learning. When the mother has to go to work to study and have to use a bottle, then start to adopt the baby to drink milk from the bottle.

Myth 5: Accumulate a few bottles and wash them together

Some mothers use several baby bottles every day and find it convenient to clean and disinfect together. But the baby's immunity is relatively weak, and it is necessary to prevent the growth of bacteria on the bottle. So at least one should be used to clean one, and then accumulate the washed bottles to disinfect together.

Myth 6: Disinfect only after use

Newborn babies have weak immune systems, so preterm babies should pay more attention. Sterilized bottles will also breed bacteria during the period before the next use, so it is best to sterilize the bottles before and after use.

Although older babies do not need to be sterilized so strictly, during the epidemic of herpes angina and hand-foot-and-foot disease, mothers still need to pay attention to the disinfection and use of baby bottles to prevent them from entering the mouth.

Misunderstanding 7: Ignore the service life of milk bottles

Use it as long as it is not bad. This is wrong. Milk bottles also have an expiration date, especially plastic milk bottles, usually about half a year. The period of use of the pacifier is shorter, about 3 months. Mothers must pay attention to the use and duration of milk bottles and pacifiers. When it is found that milk dirt is not easy to remove and the bottle body is damaged and worn out, replace the new milk bottle for the baby in time.

Myth 8: Appearance Association

Many mothers love beauty and help their babies pick some "colorful" bottles. But the safety of beautiful colors is much lower. As a container for baby rations, it is still simpler to choose, which is more beneficial to the baby's health!

How do new mothers prepare bottles?

The number of baby milk feeding bottles purchased depends on two points, the feeding method of the mother and the method of using the baby bottle. Different feeding methods have different requirements for feeding bottles.

Breastfeeding: 1-2 250ml and 1-2 120ml

Mixed feeding: 4 to 6 250ml and 1 to 2 120ml

Artificial feeding: 6 240ml, 1-2 120ml.

According to the calculation method of milk consumption of artificially fed infants, children need to be fed more than 6 times a day during the period of 0 to 6 months. Babies less than 1-month-old breastfeed 6 to 8 times a day, and babies 2 to 3 months old 6 times a day, which can be reduced to 5 times in the future.

If you have enough time at home, you should prepare at least 4-6 240ml bottles and 1-2 small bottles. But as soon as each bottle is used up, the mother should clean it immediately. If your parents are very nervous, prepare 6-8 240ml bottles and 2 ~ 3 small bottles.
