  Bottle Feeding - Drawbacks
What are some drawbacks of bottle feeding?

The main drawbacks to bottle feeding are the cost and the fact that you have to be extremely organised. All the feeding equipment must be completely sterilised, otherwise the baby risks getting ill. Fresh sterilised bottles and teats must be prepared before hand so that the formula can be made up quickly when the feed is due. It is important not to make up feeds before hand to prevent formula spoiling. However there are many nifty gadgets available to help you with the organisation – such as little holders for the pre-weighed powder which can then be dropped into the boiled and cooled water when required. None of this preparation need be alarming – again it is just a skill you need to acquire. Ask for help if you are unsure!
