There are many brands and types of formula milk available. For a newly born baby the so called ‘volledige zuigelingenvoeding’ (complete first infant milk) is the most suitable. It does not matter what brand it is.
In addition to the commonly used formula milk there are special milks intended for babies who have a digestive problem. We recommend that you first ask advice at the child health clinic before changing over to special formula milk.
There are a number of things you have to watch when you bottle feed.
The preparation needs to be done carefully and very hygienically. The maternity nurse will teach you how to do this.
Try to ensure that, especially in the beginning, the feeds are mainly done by yourself or your partner. This will provide peace and quiet for your baby during the feed.
