If you're planning to bottle-feed your baby breast milk or formula, you'll need bottles and nipples.
There are many options available when looking for baby bottles, and many of them might be the right option for you. I am just going to go over a few of the options available that might help with making a decision.
Baby Bottles are made plastic or glass.Polycarbonate bottles used to be the industry standard, but they contained BPA, a chemical that can be harmful to the body.
Glass baby bottles have become increasingly popular due to concerns about BPA and other possible chemicals in plastic bottles.But they are usually fairly expensive and durable.
The number of bottles you'll need to own can range from about four to 12, depending on whether you'll primarily be bottle feeding or breastfeeding.
Start with 4-ounce bottles. They're perfect for the small amounts of breast milk or formula newborns eat in one sitting. Shift to 8- or 9-ounce bottles at about 4 months, or whenever your baby's growing appetite makes bigger bottles more practical.
Finding the right baby bottle is not as hard as it may initially seem. Once buyers have narrowed down the requirements they have for a baby bottle, it pretty much comes down to a process of elimination to see which one their baby accepts.
