Schooling to the regime of the child who is bottle-fed
children receiving artificial feeding, accustom to the regime is easier than children who are breastfed.Since artificial mixtures are digested more slowly (proteins rougher), the interval between feedings in formula-fed infants is generally longer.
There are two approaches to feeding the child: feeding on demand, when the baby is fed every time that will require his little tummy, and feeding schedule, in which the child day feeding in clearly defined hours, usually every three hours, and at night - atawakening.Feeding on demand - for the pleasure and satisfaction of the child;feeding on a schedule - for your convenience.All your worries about the baby, and especially feeding is a complex search for a middle ground between the needs of the child and your needs.In young children, the little tummies.Most children are more suited more frequent small feedings.If you give your baby a bottle every three hours (instead of every four), you will find yourself closer to the golden mean between the child and parent
In the first few weeks of your baby awake for feeding,
if he sleeps during the day for more than four consecutive hours.If you allow your child to sleep during the day between feedings for more than four hours, it can lead to the fact that he developed this regime when he sleeps all day and all night awake and hungry, that will be very tiring for you.Try to arrange it so that the longest sleeping period is at night.More frequent feedings throughout the day and a bottle at 7:00 pm and 10:00 pm usually form more convenient for the majority of parents feeding mode.It gives parents some free time later in the evening;but if you feed the baby before you go to bed, most likely, it will be fed until 3:00 or 4:00 am, and you have to wake up only once at night.
Interpretation child signals
No matter how tempting it was to put the baby a bottle every time he cries, if you want to use as a means to calm the infant formula, you can overfeed the child.Get to know alternative ways of calm, instead of automatically reaching for the bottle at the first sign of discontent.A child may simply be looking to get it on your hands, play with them, may be needed bottle of water when he was thirsty, clean
diaper or just a change of activity.Mothers who choose formula feeding, in fact, require a greater variety of baby calming techniques than breastfeeding mothers.It is much less likely to result in overfeeding use as a means of calming the chest.
Always be sure to wash your hands thoroughly before preparing the mixture and any other food for the child, and only use clean kitchen utensils (see. For sterilization instructions below).For accessories that you will need for feeding include bottles, pacifiers, and various tools.
bottles. For starters take four bottles of 120 ml, and after you determine a child's favorite type of bottles and baby will drink for feeding more than 120 ml, you may need eight to ten bottles of 240 ml capacity.Glass is easier to clean, but it beats.Apart from the usual bottles are plastic devices such as pastry bags, representing a holder with disposable bags, which is milk and the walls of which stick together as the baby drinks
milk, which reduces the number of swallows air during feedings.For older children, there are artful bottle in the shape of a ring, which the child can keep himself.We do not recommend using these bottles for self-feeding, since they deprive the child invaluable communication that occurs during feeding, because he had to wander alone in the house with a bottle in his hand.
nipples. These rubber and silicone substitutes are available various forms, each of which served as a natural form of copying and features of the physiology of the maternal breast.And no one in fact it can not be! Orthodontic pacifiers come in baby's mouth deeper, causing more natural language movement to oust the milk, but represent a disadvantage as it requires to decide "which way to turn the nipple."The child must suck thickened base of the nipple, not just the tip. pulling nipples designed to be extended during suckling, but only if the child opens her mouth widely and sucks vigorously enough to draw the nipple deep inside.Most children, however, sucks a protruding portion.For the child who receives and the mother's breast, the nipple, this is not suitable, because the child may acquire thanks
