 A BABY NOT FED AT THE BREAST CAN BE FED WITHOUT A BOTTLE

Cup feeding can be used from birth. It is suitable for both expressed breastmilk and infant formula. You can use any clean, open cup with a smooth surface.

Cup feeding has no notable difference to bottles for average time per feed.

Cups are safer than bottles. Bottle teats and screw tops trap germs that can get into the milk and make babies ill. Cups are easily cleaned with washing in hot soapy water, and do not need sterilizing like bottles.

In emergencies, use disposable cups.

Feeding time is bonding time – lots of cuddles, eye-contact, talking, smiling, humming and singing.

CUP FEEDING IS AS EASY AS 1-2-3!
