What is the right angle to properly hold a baby's bottle when feeding her milk?

Bottle feeding: The angle should be comfortable but is not critical. Most important is whether the nipple is functioning properly. You can tell that by holding bottle upside down and seeing whether the milk drips out. It should drip out slowly one drop per second.
