Did you know that according to the World Health Organisation babies are six times more likely to die from diseases like diarrhoea and respiratory infections if they are fed on formula opposed to breast milk?
Formula that is not given safely can make a baby very sick. In developing countries where countless people do not have access to clean water, women are directed to breastfeed their babies to safeguard them from problems related to formula feeding.
Where water is dangerous an artificially fed child is up to 25 times more likely to die as a consequence of diarrhoea than a breastfed child. Babies are at risk of infection if dirty water is added to the milk powder and babies who are artificially fed are not being safeguarded by breastfeeding, which can help in fighting illness.Though, in some instances breastfeeding is not always a viable option. For example if the mother has to go to work in order to provide for the rest of her family.
The difficulty in developing countries is making formula with dirty water, or serving it in a bottle or cup that is not thoroughly clean which can expose the baby to perilous bacteria and potential death.
Imagine how much of a difference the LIFESAVER bottle could make. With the simplicity of the bottle it really is as easy as 123: Fill it, pump it, drink it. It has a flow rate of 2.5 litres per minute, a chew-proof, non-tasting replaceable teat and is designed to work at any angle.
The LIFESAVER bottle will allow formula milk to be used and administered in a safe way, thus reducing the risk of babies contracting infections or diseases.
