Positioning your Baby Correctly

Is it OK to bottle feed the baby on her back

Although many parents bottle feed their babies while the babies are on their backs, it is not the ideal position.  Babies are more susceptible to choking when feeding on their backs. They may also be more susceptible to ear infections in this feeding position. They may fall asleep with the bottle in their mouth which could lead to tooth decay once the teeth start coming in. 

How do I ensure that the child does not swallow air

Seat yourself comfortably holding the baby on your lap. Support the baby with your left arm making sure that her head is kept above the level of her stomach. Tilt the bottle up so that the formula fills the teat completely. If you do not do this, air fills in it and the baby will swallow the air. If the teat becomes flat while the baby is feeding, pull on the bottle gently to release the vacuum.
