Unopened formula will be stored in an area approved by the environmental health specialist. Formula brought from home must be commercially prepared, unopened, and labeled with the infant’s name and date. We are a “breast feeding” friendly environment. We recognize that a mother’s breast milk is the ideal food for her infant. Bottles prepared at home must be capped and transported properly in an insulated bag or cooler and places in our refrigerator immediately upon arrival. Glass bottles are prohibited and BPA few bottles are encouraged. All breast milk bottles must be prepared at home and brought in ready to feed. Parents who choose to prepare formula at home along with parents who choose to breast feed should provide the center with a back up supply of powdered concentrated to cover unforeseen circumstances. Any bottle requiring to be warmed up will be done in a cup of warm water from the faucet. Microwaves will not be used to warm bottles, milk, or any other infant food.
