In case you don’t want to or are not able to breastfeed, milk formula is a good alternative. Our maternity nurse will give you instructions on how to prepare this nutrition and how to properly cleanse the teats and bottles. She’ll also teach you about the best position to feed your baby and will assist in finding a good feeding schedule.
Choice of different types of milk formula
There are different types of formula feeding (baby milk formula). It is useful to find out which milk formula you prefer in advance, before you give birth. For example, when allergies exist in your family, a hypoallergenic diet may be a wise choice.
Try to avoid frequently switching the brand of milk formula or bottle type, since that will be unrestful to your baby. You’re welcome to ask your midwife, your maternity nurse or for example the Youth Health Organization for advice.
Together we will find a nutrient solution that’s comfortable for you and your baby.
