Sometimes, newborns can fall asleep halfway through a feed. If your baby has fallen asleep during a feed, you can put baby over your shoulder, rub their back, and stoke their head, legs and tummy. This can help to wake your baby up to finish the feed. A nappy change is also a good way to wake up a sleepy baby. If your baby doesn’t finish the bottle, there is no need to worry. Babies are very good at judging how much they need, and there is no need to force milk.
Always throw away any leftover milk after one hour, as storing bottle a used bottle increases the risk for contamination.
