Cow & Gate Comfort Milk Powder 900g
Comfort for the dietary management of colic and constipation
Why choose Cow & Gate Comfort?
It is important to consult a healthcare professional before using this product.
If your baby is suffering from colic or constipation, you'll know how unhappy these issues can make little ones, inside and out. Colic and constipation may affect babies due to the immaturity of their digestive systems, which can sometimes make digestion uncomfortable for them.
Cow & Gate comfort is specially designed for the dietary management of colic and constipation. Made with reduced lactose, partially digested why proteins and structured vegetable oil, it's nutritionally complete, so you can use it from birth or as part of a weaning diet from 6 months.
Due to comfort's special blend of ingredients, you may notice a change in your baby's stool consistency (looser) and colour (greener). This is perfectly normal.
*contains 38% of the lactose in Cow & Gate Stage 1 formula
Country of origin - Produce of the EU
Name and address of manufacturer - Cow & Gate, White Horse Business Park, Trowbridge, Wiltshire, BA14 0XQ.
Please ensure you follow the make up instructions carefully as this is a special milk. Because powdered milks are not sterile, failure to follow instructions may make your baby ill. Wash hands sterilise all utensils according to manufacturer's instructions. Boil freshly run water. Leave kettle to cool for 30 minutes. Do not use artificially softened or repeatedly boiled water. Measure the required amount of water (refer to feeding guide) into a sterilised bottle. Do not add powder to boiling water due to risk of scalding. Using the scoop provided, level off the powder with the built-in leveller. Do not press/heap the powder. Add one scoop to every 30 ml (1 fl oz) of boiled cooled water. Add the correct number of scoops to the water. Adding too many or too few scoops can be harmful. Replace seal on bottle. Shake well (for 10 seconds) to dissolve powder. Remove seal, replace with a sterilised teat. Cool under running tap. Check temperature of feed. Feed immediately. For hygiene reasons, do not store made up feeds. Make up each feed as required and always discard unfinished feeds after 2 hours.
If necessary offer cooled boiled water between feeds. Do not heat in a microwave. Hot spots may occur and cause scalding. Due to the special ingredients in Cow & Gate comfort, the milk can separate once prepared. If this occurs, shake the bottle vigorously to mix and use as normal. Cow & Gate comfort is a thicker feed so we suggest you use either variable flow teats or single hole medium or fast flow teats when feeding your baby.
