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.
Important: Always use the scoop provided, please note the colour of the scoop in this pack may change from time to time.
Prep: Wash hands and sterillise all utensils.
1 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 artficially softened or repeatedly boiled water,
2 Powder: Using the scoop, add the powder to the water, as per the feeding guide. To make sure the right amount of powder is added, use the leveller on the inside of the box to level off the scoops.
3 Don't press or heap the powder as adding too much or too little formula 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 in 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.
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 scoops or anything else to your baby's feed.
Never leave your baby alone during feeding.
Hazards and Cautions
Store powder in a cool, dry place.
Do not refrigerate.
Use powder within 4 weeks of opening.
This product is made to strict hygiene standards but because powdered formula milks are not sterile, failure to follow instructions on preparation and storage may make your baby ill.
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.
