These early moments, your baby’s first months, are precious. It’s a time to build a special bond that will last a lifetime —for both of you.

Hold her close. Feel her warmth. See her grow and change every day.
Start small
Take baby to the grocery store, mall, or park for an hour or so. Leave home right after a feeding so you’ve got a happy baby.
Be prepared
If you’re breastfeeding, wear a shirt that’s simple to lift and a nursing bra that opens easily. If you are uncomfortable breastfeeding in public, bring a blanket. If you’re formula feeding, pack extra of whatever format you use so you’re prepared for an unexpected delay.
Consider convenience
If you’re formula feeding, you’ve got options. With Enfamil A+® Nursette® Bottles, just add a nipple and you’re ready to feed your newborn. For slightly older babies, Enfamil A+ Ready to Feed Bottles are now in Nipple-Ready bottles. No mixing. No measuring. Just add nipple.*

*Nipples sold separately
Keep it lean
Before feeding your baby, wash your hands or use a sanitizing gel. If you’re formula feeding with powder or liquid concentrate, bring sterile water from home so you don’t have to use water from a drinking fountain or bathroom sink.
Try a longer trip
If you’re driving, leave close to naptime so your baby can sleep en route and be alert and refreshed when you arrive at your destination.
These are the simple pleasures you and your loved ones can enjoy sharing the feeding experience. Every time you rock her, look into her eyes, take her tiny hand in yours, sing softly or soothe her while you give her the nutrition she needs, you are building trust. And the bond goes both ways. Skin-to-skin contact when feeding by breast or bottle can boost intimacy even more. It is a wonderful time of discovery. And, when you’re ready, it can also be an amazing time to go out and explore the world together.
