What should I do about feeding my baby?

If you breastfeed, continue to do so. If you use or supplement with baby formula:

  • Use ready-to-use baby formula, if possible.
  • Prepare powdered or concentrated baby formula with bottled water. Use boiled water if you do not have bottled water. Disinfect water for baby formula if you cannot boil your water or don’t have access to bottled water (see above for directions on how to use bleach to disinfect water).
  • Wash and sterilize bottles and nipples with boiled or disinfected water before use.
  • If you cannot sterilize bottles, use single-serve, ready-to-feed bottles.
