How to Use a Medela Bottle
Medela bottles are designed to make feeding your baby easier and more convenient. They come in a variety of sizes and styles, so you can find the perfect bottle for your needs. Here’s how to use a Medela bottle.
Step 1: Prepare the Bottle
Before using your Medela bottle, it’s important to properly prepare it. Start by washing all parts of the bottle with warm, soapy water. Rinse thoroughly and then sterilize the bottle by boiling it in water for five minutes. Allow the bottle to cool before proceeding.
Step 2: Fill the Bottle
Once the bottle is prepared, you can fill it with formula or breast milk. If using formula, follow the instructions on the package for proper measurements. For breast milk, use a clean spoon or measuring cup to measure out the desired amount of milk.
Step 3: Attach Nipple and Cap
Next, attach the nipple and cap to the bottle. Make sure that they are securely attached and that there are no leaks. Once everything is secure, you can give the bottle to your baby.
Step 4: Feed Your Baby
Finally, hold your baby in an upright position and offer them the bottle. Gently tilt the bottle so that your baby can drink comfortably. When they are finished drinking, remove the nipple from their mouth and replace it with a clean one.
