Bottle Feeding Lists:

Updated: Dec 21, 2021

While breastfeeding has its place, it is not always a possibility. Certain medications, illnesses, or surgeries can affect your ability to breastfeed. There is no shame in bottle-feeding your baby. In fact, bottle-feeding allows you to track how much your baby eats at each feeding, feed less often, and allow other family members to bond with your baby during feeding times. For bottle-feeding your baby, make sure to pack the following:

Once you start pumping breast milk on regular schedule, you will need to store the breast milk in fridge in either breast milk storage bags or bottles. Many moms who also produce more milk than their babies can have, they donate it to a breast milk bank. Find more details about such banks here.
