I realized yesterday that there are many things I do not know about birthing babies. Which is a little scary, considering the fact that I have a nine year old son. I will admit it, I'm clueless on some subjects.
Like, do you still boil baby bottles? Older ladies keep telling me to boil them and everything I've read online says I don't have to boil the bottles. I don't know what to do. And I don't have another appointment with my doctor until Tuesday and knowing me I will forget to ask her, because I always forget to ask things until I am in the car on the way back to work.
Also, do you still make formula with sterile or nursery water? When I had Jay we had well water, so I always made his formula with sterilized water. But now that I live in town, is it necessary?
I finally put batteries in the little attachable vibrating/music playing/light up thing that clips to my bassinet last night. The light is awesome, Micah says the music is creepy and not allowed, and the dang thing vibrates so loud that it would wake the dead. How is that supposed to help a baby sleep? It sounds like a chopper landing in the bedroom. Good thing it came as part of the bassinet and I didn't pay for it.
Another thing. Do I need a bottle warmer? I always just made Jay's formula and put it in a feeding tube, so I know nothing about warming a bottle that a baby is going to drink. I believe I nuked it when Jay was little or just made it room temperature.
I guess it just boils down to me being absolutely clueless about feeding babies.
