When is the right time for the baby to start feeding from the bottle?
According to the recommendation of the World Health Organization, newborn milk, especially mother’s milk, must be fed for the first six months. This helps in building their immune system and works to protect them from many diseases. Before starting the bottle, make sure that your innocent is healthy and fit. Babies usually take two to three weeks to get used to the bottle.
