How to prepare
Because powdered milks are not sterile, failure to follow instructions may make your baby ill.
1 Wash hands and sterilise all utensils according to manufacturer's instructions.
2 Boil 1 litre of freshly run water. Leave kettle to cool for no longer than 30 minutes. Do not use artificially softened or repeatedly boiled water.
3 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.
4 Using the scoop provided, level off the powder with the built-in leveller. Do not press/heap the powder.
5 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.
6 Replace seal on bottle. Shake well for 10 seconds to dissolve powder. Remove seal, replace with a sterilised teat.
7 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.
