Day 45 - Reduce Air Intake

Today's Tip - When bottle feeding, feed your baby upright rather than on his back

Holding your baby at a 45 degree angle rather than flat on his back will help reduce the amount of air he takes in when he feeds. Whether or not this decreases the chance of colic is debatable. However, having a little gas does tend to make babies more fussy than usual. Plus, if you're feeding your baby his pre-bedtime meal, you want him as happy as possible when you try to put him down for the night.
