Worried about mixing up who’s drinking what and how much during each feeding? Place the bottles in the same position the babies are in (so if Suzy is to the left of Sammy, put the bottle on the left side of the table or counter behind her) when you put the bottle down to burp. You can also try marking the outside of the bottle with an initial or symbol. But don’t worry too much about exchanging cooties at this point — it’s part of life with newborn multiples and bound to happen at some point. At the end of the day, you can sterilize all the bottles by running them through the dishwasher.
