Bottle Starter Sets

A "starter set" is a sensible way to get started with one brand of bottle. Round out the starter set with a couple smaller packs of bottles to be sure you have a good supply on hand. Six to eight bottles is a good supply to start with if you exclusively bottle feed and clean once or twice a day.

Small Bottles (4-5 oz)

Small bottles are perfect for the first few months when your baby takes only a few ounces during a feeding. Have six to eight on hand if you are bottle-feeding exclusively and wash once or twice a day. A wide-neck bottle (short and wide) is more comfortable to hold and further reduces air bubbles.

Large Bottles (8-9 oz)

Graduate to larger size bottles when your baby begins to consume close to 4 ounces during a feeding. Four to six of the larger bottle should be sufficient, as your baby will be eating less often as it consumes more during each feeding. A wide-neck bottle (short and wide) is more comfortable to hold and further reduces air bubbles.

Bottle Warmer

A powdered formula bottle can be "warmed" simply by using warm water from the tap (unless there is an issue with your tap water). A pitcher of hot water can warm a bottle of breast milk. (The microwave may be tempting but breaks down nutrients in breast milk.) If you crave the certainty of a timer or temperature control for warming, check out these bottle warmers.

Bottle Brush

If you choose to wash bottles by hand, a bottle brush gets to the hard to reach places. (Please don't use your overworked dish scrubber!) At some point, the dishwasher becomes an obvious solution to dishpan hands. If you don't want to cross-contaminate with grown-up dishes, run the bottles separately on the economy cycle.
