Bottle Feeding Policy
All bottles must be labeled with the child’s full name and the correct date. Staff must set up a classroom procedure that ensures that parents do not leave unlabeled bottles at the center
. If a bottle is left unlabeled, the bottle may not be given to the child, even if the staff member knows to whom the bottle belongs. Instead, the parents must be called and informed that they must immediately return to the school to either label their bottles or bring new labeled bottles to the school. If this occurs, the Director or Assistant Director must be immediately notified.
Each staff member is ultimately responsible for checking the bottle before feeding it to an infant. Staff members are expected to take great care as they prepare to feed a baby. This is not a time to rush but instead it’s a time be careful, cautious and intentional. The staff member must check the name labeled on the bottle to ensure that it matches the child about to be fed.

Handle All Children With Care

Do not swing a child by the arms
Any type of swinging by holding the hands or wrists can put stress on the elbow joint and is prohibited.
Gently take children by the hand
Jerking a child by the arm or pulling him along while walking or quickly grabbing his or her hand can jerk the arm, causing the radial head to slip.

handing you a baby, lean close to the person and collect the baby in a tight bundle
