For newborn babies who drink powder milk, we advise the parents that feeding position not to be horizontal, And don’t let the baby hold the bottle and don’t brace the bottle with an object. All of these positions are wrong.
We advise that the baby’s head be higher than his feet while bottle-feeding, And that the parents feed the baby themselves and not leave them unattended. This position prevents the accumulation of fluids in the baby’s middle ear.
