Bottle Feeding

If you have decided against breast feeding, don’t worry. Don’t feel guilty. As long as you have discussed bottle feeding with your pediatrician and follow his/her instructions, your baby should do well.

There are some advantages to formula feeding:

• Breast feeding can be tiring. With bottles, anyone
can feed your baby while you rest, or while you are
at work.
• Bottle feeding also gives you more freedom. If you
bottle feed, you should not have to worry about cracked
nipples or milk leakage.
• Your caloric intake doesn’t need to be as high as when
you nurse.

Even though there are some advantages to bottle feeding, most doctors still strongly recommend breast feeding. The advantages of nursing outweigh the problems involved.

This is a time of great joy and excitement. Whether you breast or bottle feed is not as crucial as is having a supporting, loving partner who will be involved in your baby’s care.

HOW IT WORKS

A Seal of Approval review involves a multi-step process conducted over an eight-week period.

Parents and children, experience and review submitted products and services either already released or coming to market.

Participants fill out questionnaires for each product or service they test. They score based on 13 levels of criteria including quality, appeal, design, price, packaging, directions, desirability, stimulation, replay factor and more. Results are based on both statistical averaging and comments received by testers.

There are three testing periods each year:

Report Period

SPRING '22

FALL ‘22

HOLIDAY ‘22

Testing Begins

February 15th

June 1st

September 1st

Submission Deadline

June 24th

September 23rd

Testing Ends

April 24th

July 31st

October 30th

Report Issued

May 10th

August 17th

November 16th

Each submission must be accompanied by a $295 product testing fee (we offer multiple submission discounts). This fee covers the cost of testing, nothing more. It is non-refundable and has no bearing on the result of the testing. Additionally, we require three samples of the product or access codes for online submissions.
