Graduated baby bottle: advantages, characteristics and instructions for use

Just like pipettes used to distribute medicine to a child, the graduated bottle exists. It is, as its name suggests, a bottle with a graduation on the outside of the container.

The presence of clear and precise marking on the exterior wall indicates how much liquid can be added.

What do the graduations on your bottle look like?

Graduations are never affixed to the inside of baby bottles during the design phase. They risk retaining milk residues and impurities. The inside of your bottle therefore always remains perfectly smooth.

Graduations can be expressed in milliliters (ml) or ounces (oz), depending on models and brands.

The advantages of the daily graduated bottle

A graduated bottle offers multiple advantages! Let's see which ones.

Adapt the quantity of powdered milk according to the manufacturers' recommendations

The graduations help to accurately measure the amount of water and milk powder to add when preparing baby bottles. They thus guarantee that your baby receives a balanced diet that complies with the recommendations of infant milk brands.

Know the dose of milk drunk by baby and be able to inform your pediatrician

Using a graduated bottle allows you to monitor and control the quantity of milk consumed by your baby. This information is valuable during visits to the pediatrician and helps ensure optimal monitoring of the child's growth and development.

Know when to change your bottle for a larger model

The markings also help determine if your baby needs a larger capacity bottle. When you notice milk quantities steadily increasing, it may be time to switch to a more suitable model.

How to use a graduated bottle?

Before using a graduated bottle, it is recommended to:

  • Wash and sterilize the bottle thoroughly before each use.
  • Fill the bottle with the recommended amount of water , referring to the graduated marks.
  • Add the number of spoonfuls of milk powder according to the manufacturer's instructions.
  • Gently shake the bottle to mix the powdered milk and water well. Preferably, mix the contents by rolling the bottle in the palms of your hands.
  • Gently warm the bottle in a bain-marie .
  • Check the temperature of the milk using a thermometer or by pouring a drop of milk onto the front of the wrist, where the skin is thin and soft.

Where can I find graduated baby bottles?

Graduated baby bottles are available in most pharmacies, childcare stores and supermarkets. You can also find them online, on specialized sites like ours.

It is strongly recommended to choose baby bottles that are plastic-free and comply with current standards.

Élhée offers you graduated baby bottles in medical grade silicone. 🍼

There is therefore no risk of micro plastic particles being released into your child's milk formula.

  • The graduations of our bottles progress in steps of 30 .
  • They start at 30 ml (or 1 ounce, equivalent American unit of measurement whose symbol is “ oz ”) for all our bottles. 30 ml corresponds most of the time to 1 measure of powdered milk and therefore to the smallest dose that it is possible to prepare.
  • The graduation scale is discreet so as not to distort the design of the bottles.

In short

In short, the markings on baby bottles are much more than just a practical detail: they represent an essential element in ensuring that your baby receives adequate and balanced nutrition, in accordance with the manufacturers' recommendations.

By using a graduated bottle, you have peace of mind, knowing that you are offering your child the best conditions to grow well. 😊
