5 Steps to Making Your Baby’s Bottle

The nitty-gritty of bottle-making can seem a little daunting, but once you get the procedure down, it will become second nature. Here are steps for doing it right.






  • Step 1: Wash Your Hands. Wash hands thoroughly with soap and water and dry them well before preparing formula or drinks. Proper hygiene, preparation, dilution, use, and storage are important when preparing formulas or drinks.
  • Step 2: Follow the label instructions. A lot of people don’t realize that if you are using powder, you put the water in the bottle first and then the measured powder. Some powders need to be packed into the scoop while others are unpacked—look on the label for directions and always use the scoop provided.
  • Step 3: Shake well. To create optimal consistency and make sure your baby is getting all of the important nutrients, shake the bottle until it is mixed. Never heat the bottle in the microwave, as this can cause burns
  • Step 4: Look out for Concentrate. Liquid formulas may seem easier to use, but that’s not always the case. Some are ‘ready to feed’ and require no water, but others are concentrated formulas. If the label says ‘Concentrate’ it needs a 1:1 dilution with water. Follow all labeling very carefully.
  • Step 5: Err on the side of caution. An error in preparing your baby’s bottle can result in the wrong proportions, leading to hunger or tummy trouble, so if you are tired and believe you have made a mistake, the best rule of thumb is to throw that feeding away.
