What animal milk do I use for bottle-feeding
You can use cow's milk, buffalo's
milk or commercial infant milk preparations. Cow's milk and buffalo's milk
should be boiled and given to the baby undiluted. In the case of buffalo
milk, you should allow it to cool after boiling and remove the cream before
giving it to the baby.
How do I prepare bottle feeds if I am using cow or buffalo milk
The first thing to do is to keep all the sterilized equipment - bottles, teats, bowls, spoons, etc., handy. Wash your hands carefully with soap and water before handling the sterilized equipment and milk. If you are using cow's milk or buffalo's milk, boil it for ten minutes and then allow it to cool. In the case of buffalo's milk, you should remove the cream that forms on the surface of the milk on cooling. Do not dilute the milk by adding water. Add one teaspoon of sugar for every 75 ml of milk before feeding the baby. Test the temperature of the milk on the inside of your wrist before you begin feeding. It should be lukewarm.
