Formula Feeding Guide
While formula feeding is common, formula feeding education is not. Turns out, it’s not as easy as going to the formula aisle, choosing one, and popping a bottle in your baby’s mouth.
Many parents plan on exclusively breastfeeding, but end up using formula at some time in their baby’s first year. Some parents also choose to use formula right from the start. Either way, this guide will give you all the information you need to feed your baby with confidence.
This guide is perfect for any new parent who wants to feed their baby. Whether you plan to formula feed or not, knowing how to properly bottle feed will come in handy!
It makes a great gift for baby showers, new parents, new grandparents, and any caregivers!
All of this was written by a pediatric registered dietitian and lactation consultant who not only specializes in feeding kids, but is a mom and gets how stressful and overwhelming it can be. My goal is to keep it as simple as possible while empowering you to feel confident that you are doing a great job feeding your child (because I know you are!).
