    Disposable diapers may feel dry after a baby urinates, but ammonia in the urine still affects the skin, so change the diaper at least every three hours.

    Whether or not you sterilize, these measures are important:

    Wash bottles and nipples in hot, soapy water, and rinse them thoroughly before each use. If you rinse the bottles and nipples immediately after using them, they will be easier to clean. You can wash the bottles in a dishwasher, but wash the nipples by hand, forcing soapy water through the nipple openings. Let the nipples air-dry. Discard nipples if they get sticky, dry, or cracked.
    Boil water for at least five minutes, then let it cool before mixing it with formula.
    Wash your hands before mixing the formula.
    If you are using liquid formula, shake the can.
    Wash the top of the formula can before opening it. Open it with a clean can opener. Be certain all measuring equipment is thoroughly clean.
    Once the formula is prepared, give it to the baby or refrigerate it immediately.
    If the formula has been refrigerated, you may prefer to warm it slightly by placing it in a pan of hot water. Test the temperature by letting it drip onto your wrist. Do not heat formula in a microwave oven. The formula would heat unevenly, and so could burn the baby's mouth.
