Who should provide the bottles?
The center (board, director, staff) will have to determine its own policy on this. However, the Iowa State Agency recommends that bottles be cleaned and sanitized using appropriate procedures at the center, if possible, since improperly cleaned bottles could put the center at risk for liability. Regardless of who supplies the bottles, they must be clearly identified with the child's name and the date and time the formula was made. The center may want to put purchasing bottles on its "wish list".
