This simple, concise guide provides formula-feeding parents with a quick overview on how to choose your infant formula.

It also includes tips on how to bottle feed responsively, so as to build up a close and loving relationship with your baby.

More tips on building a close and loving relationship with your new baby can be found in our leaflet for parents, Building a happy baby.

Unicef UK Baby Friendly Initiative is firmly committed to the promotion, protection and support of breastfeeding. However, in the UK bottle feeding remains very common and so we also work to ensure the best outcomes possible for babies when they are not breastfed. When considering use of our materials outside of the UK, we suggest taking into account the country context and individual needs before deciding whether or not our materials are suitable for use
