Tips for Bottle Feeding

Having a new baby is an exciting yet terrifying time, especially for those first-time parents. You are so overcome with joy from your little one coming into the world, yet now you have this huge responsibility, and you are mildly panicking. You are solely responsible for this tiny life; that’s a lot of pressure.

While Maxx Elite can’t ease all your pressures about being a new parent, we can help you in certain aspects. We want to help you be the very best parents, and that's why we carry the most efficient baby bottle warmers, cleaners, and sanitizers. These products will make you feel at ease while feeding your bundle of joy. While new parenthood might feel daunting, we wanted to give you some tips about feeding your new baby and why our bottle warmer is going to make the process that much easier for you.


Stay Calm

We know this is easier said than done when you have this fragile being in your arms that you love more than life itself. You will know what to do, because that’s mother nature's instinct kicking in. After you take your baby home, make sure you always enjoy your feeding times. These moments are usually the calmest of the day, even if it starts with the baby screaming. Make sure you are comfortable for you and baby, and relax.

Focus

Many new parents are stressed beyond belief, and this is natural. However, during your feeding time with baby, focus on just that. Don’t think about how you have four loads of laundry, a sink full of dishes, and you haven't showered in 3 days. Just look at your precious one's little face as they enjoy the nutrients you are supplying for them.

Right Temperature

Goldilocks had her mind made up when she picked her porridge. No one likes food or beverages that are too hot or too cold; they like them just right. Your baby is no different from goldilocks, except maybe they haven’t come across three bears yet. Your baby needs their formula or breast milk just at the right temperature. Our baby bottle warmer will do just the trick. This digital monitor will let you know when your bottle is safe and ready for baby. With different heat settings, you can make sure it is just right. Baby bottle warmers are always going to be more beneficial, because there will be no hot spots like a microwave would produce.

Just the Right Position

When you are feeding your new baby, you always want them at a 45-degree angle. If that doesn’t make much sense, in your arms is a great position, or having the little one propped up with a pillow. You ideally want the baby in a position that is partly sitting up and partly laying down.

Be Aware...of the Air

Air in your baby’s drink of choice is a serious problem. The reason for this is it can cause the baby a lot of issues and produce colic, which no one wants a screaming baby at 3 in the morning. The way to combat this troubling issue is to always make sure you are holding the bottle at an angle, just like how your baby is positioned. You always want the nipple of the bottle to be full of milk at all times. Once the bottle starts to be consumed, you need to keep tipping it higher and higher.

When they Begin to Bite

At first, your little one will have soft tiny gums to suck on their bottles. But as time goes on, they begin to get their little chompers, and this can cause issues in the baby bottle department. Be aware of their teeth and if they are biting on the nipple of the bottle instead of sucking on it. They may puncture it since the nipples are made of a soft material, and then they will not be able to obtain the liquid properly.

Start Early

If you are a working mom, we applaud you. But this also means you will have to go back to work at some point, which also means if you are breastfeeding, you will have to move over to the bottle. Baby might reject this new change at first, but with time, they will become used to the new routine. When you know you will be switching from breast to bottle, start early. You want your baby to be adjusted before you step foot into the office.

Have Others Attempt Feeding

When we want something, we focus on it until we have it in our possession. Babies are no different. If you are moving over from breast to bottle, your baby is going to want your breast no matter what. Having other family members or friends feed your baby when you are not present will let them focus on the bottle and not your breasts.

When you have a new little one, we know your mind will be flooded with advice from friends, family, and obviously the internet. One takeaway from these tips is to always warm your baby's bottle thoroughly using our baby bottle warmer. We can assure you that this will be the best way to make sure your baby is safe from accidental burns.

Our baby warmers are also sanitizers, so you always be able to help baby avoid unwanted germs in their system. Shop our quality selection of baby bottle warmers, cleaners, and sanitizers. Having a baby may feel like the easy part now, but trust us, you will get this parenting thing down in no time!
