First off, if you're weighing breastfeeding vs. formula, it's smart to at least give breastfeeding a shot. If you need tips and support for breastfeeding success, read the following: formula safety If you do decide to feed your baby formula, discuss the best formula for your baby with your pediatrician and always use a BPA-free safe baby bottle for mixing your formula. After that, make sure you don't make these common formula mistakes... Dirty formula prep: Because your baby's immune system is not fully developed you need to make sure your formula prep is clean, which means you wash your hands, the counter, and the top of the formula can before you start mixing. Also always start with a clean bottle. Weird measurements: Too much water in your powdered formula mix means less nutrients get to your baby. Too little water in the formula can cause dehydration. Use the scoop that came with your formula to measure and follow directions on the can. Improper storage: You need to store formula correctly or bacteria may hurt your baby. If you mix more than one serving at a time, store the extra serving in a different bottle. Never place a bottle your baby drank off of back in the fridge. Technically, you really should only premix as much formula as you need for 24 hours.
