Assumes weaning at 6 months. Your baby may need more or less than the feeding guide above. This information is given as a guide only. Consult your healthcare professional if you require more advice.
1 Prep: Wash hands and sterilise all utensils.
2 Water: Boil 1 litre of freshly run water in a kettle then leave to cool for 30 minutes and no more so the water can reach the recommended temperature of 70°C. When ready, pour the right amount of water into a sterilised bottle, as per the feeding guide. Do not use artificially softened or repeatedly boiled water.
3 Powder: Tear off the top of the sachet and without touching the tabs, add the correct number to the water. Adding too many or too few tabs could make your baby ill.
4 Shake: Place the sterilised teat and cap on the bottle and shake straight away. For best results, shake vertically and vigorously for at least 10 seconds, until all of the powder is dissolved.
5 Cool the bottle by placing under a cold running tap or in a bowl of cold water, and check the temperature by placing a few drops on the inside of your wrist. The formula should feel lukewarm, but not hot. If possible, we'd recommend starting the feed straight away and always finishing within 2 hours.
How to Store Your Tabs
When you do not use all the tabs in a sachet, fold the top of the sachet.
Fasten it with a clip or store in an air-tight container. (Clip not included)
After opening the sachet, use the remaining tabs as soon as possible, within one week.
Important Feeding Advice
Do not feed babies undissolved tabs.
Handle with care. Tabs may break when dropped or held too firmly.
Make up each feed as required.
For hygiene reasons, do not store made up feeds, discard unfinished feeds as soon as possible, and always within 2 hours.
Do not heat feeds in a microwave, hot spots may occur and cause scalding.
Never add extra tabs or anything else to your baby's feed.
Never leave your baby alone during feeding.
Follow the preparation instructions at all times, even when on the go.

Hazards and Cautions

Store in a cool, dry place.
Do not refrigerate.
Keep tabs out of reach of children.
For best before, see top of pack.
Breastfeeding is best. Infant milk is suitable from birth, when babies are not breastfed and should only be used on the advice of a doctor, dietitian, pharmacist, or other professional responsible for maternal and child care.
When bottle feeding do not allow prolonged or frequent contact of milk feeds with your baby's teeth as this increases the risk of tooth decay. Ask your healthcare professional or dentist for advice. Make sure your baby's teeth are cleaned after the last feed at night.
