WHO.

Powdered infant formula is not sterile. It may contain bacteria that can cause serious illness in infants. By preparing and storing powdered infant formula correctly, you can reduce the risk of illness. This leaflet contains new information to help you prepare cup feeds from powdered infant formula as safely as possible.

Should I feed formula from cups or from bottles? If you live in an area where sanitation and clean water are a problem, cup-feeding is a safer option than bottle-feeding. This is because the teats and screw tops of bottles are more difficult to clean and can trap harmful bacteria that could make infants ill.
