Published by Better Health Start for Life and the Baby Friendly Initiative and updated in 2022, this leaflet provides families and health professionals with key information about bottle feeding.

This leaflet 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.

For further information on infant milks in the UK, see the First Steps Nutrition Trust website. You can also read further information for health professionals on working within the International Code of Marketing of Breastmilk Substitutes
