Formula feeding

Learn about baby formula milk, how to
 prepare, times and amounts of formula milk, and how to prevent baby bottle teething.

Breast milk is the key to the proper development of children around the world

It is known as a rich source of nutrients of nature. Breastfeeding is also beneficial for the mother’s health as it reduces the risks of breast and uterine cancers and bone density. Within a month of your baby’s birth, your breast milk supply is established.

You may realize that you are not producing enough milk for your baby. If so, do not stop breastfeeding.

Instead, talk to your local counselor or other breastfeeding specialist or your doctor for help. If you start feeding your baby with a bottle before your milk supply is well established, your milk supply may decrease to such an extent that breastfeeding becomes difficult or impossible.

If there is a specific reason you must wean, or you have made a conscious decision not to breastfeed, you should feel comfortable with the decision to bottle feed.

A cow’s milk formula with added iron is best. You can also use infant formula as a complementary food, if you are unable to breastfeed your baby even though your milk supply is well established. Do not feed your baby regular cow’s milk before 12 months of age as this can lead to iron deficiency and allergies.

How is baby formula made?

Most baby formulas are made from cow’s milk, but they contain balanced vitamins, minerals and other nutrients to help your baby grow and develop properly. It is very unlikely that there is an allergy to the proteins in cow’s milk or an intolerance to the natural sugars in milk. If you are concerned about this possibility, talk to your doctor to find out which formula is best for your baby.

Although baby formula milks are formulated with nutritional elements that are as close as possible to mother’s milk, the ingredients in alternative formula milks do not contain all the ingredients that have been identified in human milk. Of the more than 200 identified human milk components found in this complex fluid, only 30 can be artificially added to infant formula. Scientists have found a way to combine the omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids in breast milk that are important for eye and brain development.

Most baby formula contains natural sugars because it contains only the same carbohydrates (starches) as breast milk. The sugars in milk help with digestion, regular bowel movements, and the formation of healthy tissue. The formula also contains protein for baby growth and easily digestible fats that protect your baby’s skin and help absorb certain vitamins.

The formula includes the following essential vitamins:

Vitamin O for building the baby’s body cells and good vision

B. To maintain vitamins, nervous system, skin and tissues (cells).

Vitamin C for gums and teeth

Vitamin D for strong bones and teeth

Vitamin E for healthy red blood cells.

Baby formula also contains important minerals such as calcium, phosphorus for healthy bones and teeth, and iron to prevent iron deficiency in the blood. All formula-fed babies should be given iron-fortified formula. . The level of iron in formula milk is not high enough to cause diarrhea or constipation.

Preparing baby formula milk

Baby formula milk is available in three forms: powdered, condensed liquid, and ready-to-serve milk. Ready-to-serve milk can be poured directly into the baby’s bottle and given as it is. This is especially handy when you’re traveling. For the first four months of a baby’s life, condensed milk and powdered formula need to be mixed with boiling or commercially available sterile water as per the formula manufacturer’s instructions. Carefully measure and mix to make sure your baby gets the right amount of condensed formula milk. Do not add more formula milk and do not dilute the prepared milk by adding more water.

To make formula milk, boil the water for two to five minutes before use.

If you warm a baby’s bottle, check the temperature of the formula before giving it to the baby. Avoid heating the bottle in the microwave as hot spots on the plastic can affect the nutritional and anti-infective properties of formula milk. These hot spots can also burn the baby’s mouth. Instead, place the bottle under running hot water or in a bottle warmer. Be sure to mix the formula milk well once it is warmed.

Once the formula milk is prepared, use it or refrigerate it immediately. Freshly made formula milk can be refrigerated for up to 24 hours. Discard formula milk that has been sitting at room temperature for more than an hour. After feeding, discard any milk left in the bottle.

Timings and Amounts

Newborns often consume 30 milliliters [one ounce] of formula at one feeding, and this amount increases to 60 milliliters to 90 milliliters [two to three ounces] by the end of one week of age. . Your baby will probably need eight feedings a day in the first three weeks of life. After that, the number of meals each day will decrease and the amount of each meal will increase. Let your baby decide how much formula milk he needs. Don’t force him to finish the bottle. If your baby is not hungry at a feeding time, increase the time between feedings.

Before feeding, observe how quickly the formula drops from the bottle nipple. From a clean bottle nipple, approximately one drop per second should fall if the bottle is held upside down. A bottle pacifier can prolong feeding time.

Feeding your baby

The time of feeding should be convenient. It is not only to feed your child but also to form a relationship with him. Lift your baby in your arms in a position between sitting and lying down so that milk does not get stuck in his throat. This position will also prevent the milk from entering the baby’s ear. Hold the bottle tilted to one side so that the teat and neck of the bottle are full of milk, thus preventing your baby from swallowing too much air.

Burping is not necessary. Air in the stomach does not hurt. However, cardamom reduces swelling. You can try to get your baby to burp after each feed, but don’t worry if he doesn’t. If it becomes necessary to expel air from the stomach, it will come out during the attempt to belch, but this will not always be possible. If you want your baby to burp, wait until he’s breastfed.

Preventing tooth decay with a baby bottle

When your baby is sleeping, fluids are accumulating in the mouth, if you put a bottle of milk or any other sweet drink in your baby’s mouth, it can lead to tooth decay. You can prevent this problem by not feeding your baby a bottle while he sleeps. If you must give a bottle at this time, fill it with water instead of milk.


Call on Meta to provide reparations to the Rohingya community

A refugee community is taking on a Silicon Valley tech giant. Ethnic Rohingya groups are calling for reparations for Facebook’s role in the atrocities in Myanmar. Sign the petition calling on Meta to take responsibility now.

In 2017, more than 700,000 Rohingya became refugees after fleeing extreme violence and crimes against humanity during a campaign of ethnic cleansing by the Myanmar military. Facebook (owned by Meta) contributed to violence and discrimination against them by spreading and amplifying anti-Rohingya content across the platform.

However, the billion-dollar company has refused all requests from the Rohingya for providing meaningful remedy. Now, a group of Rohingya youth in Cox’s Bazar, Bangladesh, have filed a human rights complaint against Facebook in the USA for its role in the abuses perpetrated against their community. They have asked for an investment of $1 million USD for educational projects in the refugee camp.

Meta cannot change the past, but it can help the community to move forward by providing them with the remedy they have requested, apologizing to the victims and making adequate changes to the platform to ensure this doesn’t happen again.

The Rohingya community are determined that Meta be held accountable. Showkutara, a 22-year-old living in Cox’s Bazar, says “Facebook must pay. If they do not, we will go to every court in the world. We will never give up in our struggle.”

Sign the petition and demand that Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg agrees to the Rohingya community’s demand for reparations from Meta now. With your signature, we will show a collective demand for Meta to do better, starting with providing reparations to the Rohingya. With enough global pressure, we can hold Meta accountable.

Henry said that the most unfaithful thing in the world is our job, our profession and our business. If we get sick today, if we have an accident today, our organization will hand over our chair to someone else before evening. We close our shop today, our customers will buy from another store tomorrow.
If we die today, our profession will forget us tomorrow, but unfortunately we give the most precious time of life to the most unfaithful thing in the world. We spend our best energies in this unfaithful world. And those who are our partners in pain, with whom all our joys and all our joys are associated and who are most loyal to us, we forget them, we give them very little time of our life. “
