Published by the Department of Health and the Baby Friendly Initiative and updated in 2021, this leaflet provides families and health professionals with key information about bottle feeding.

It is intended to be used as a teaching aid when health professionals are explaining how to make up feeds as safely as possible to parents who have chosen to bottle feed.

Parents may also find our guide to infant formula and responsive bottle feeding useful.
