To think that Katie (or the queen) should make up formula following NHS guidelines

Kate's decision to bottlefeed is a personal one. It is her decision how she feeds her baby. Like every mum in the land she deserves support and the freedom to make her own baby feeding decisions. However I feel its important that whoever is making up feeds does it safely and follows NHS guidelines.

There is no reason to make up feeds in batches or use the microwave to heat formula. The microwave can be used to sterilise the bottles, but not to heat up pre made feeds. It would be awful if princess Charolotte got burnt by hot spots of milk in the bottle or contracted gastrocentitis. They have a qualfied nanny who surely must be familiar with current recommendations.

NHS guidelines

Lots of mums with two children under two have to manage without paid help.

You know that's not real, don't you?

Just asked for this to be deleted. They arent the real royal family.

I can't decide if you're serious. You don't think that's real do you? It isn't.

Did you scroll down and read that this is a spoof?!

It's fake.

But that’s just what she did during her first meeting with her great-granddaughter… if, of course, these pictures are to be believed

Its a spoof, my love. Pictures with lookalikes by that person who's famous for it.

:pats head:

Those are lookalikes? Although whoever doing the shoot should have followed current guidelines I guess.

They are spoof photos using lookalikes!

plus it is ok to make milk up in advance with hot water and put them in the fridge - there is info on the nhs site about doing so

Thanks for that.

LoL. Love the heir and spare tshirts. You can tell it's a spoof grin

Even if it's not real...., theNHS guidelines are just that. Guidelines. NOT the law!!!

WorraLiberty Thu 07-May-15 10:52:25

OMG this has given me such a laugh! grin

TheMoa Thu 07-May-15 10:53:29

How can you possibly have read that drivel and thought it real? grin

Do you take everything you come across online or in the papers as being a true record? No discernment at all?


CountingThePennies Thu 07-May-15 10:53:36

I havent read the article but...

I formula fed dd whos now 2. I always batch made up bottles and heated every single one in the microwave. You do not get hot spots if you stir the milk throughly before giving to the baby.

I have never burnt my childs mouth and she only vomited around 3 times in 12 months

grin Thanks for this OP.

Did you really think the Queen would make the bottles and change a nappy and invite the Daily Mail round to take photos? You need to go back to bed!

In one of the pics the babies are wearing baby gros that say "the heir" and "the spare". grin Those royals have really lost all sense of decorum.
