Why the “le” in “Tú le das el biberón a tu hijo”?

Hola D

This "le" refers to "your son". It is an indirect object pronoun. Although it is clear in the sentence who the bottle is given to with "a tu hijo", sometimes we make it even clearer by adding "le/les" (to him/her/them).

There is a lesson coming up soon (for a higher level, though) about this. I hope this is clear for you now.

I get that, thanks.  It's just that none of the other examples use an indirect object pronoun.  From your answer it seems that it's just an optional thing in this context.
