Preparing your baby’s feed
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 fresh water. Leave kettle to cool for 30 minutes and no longer. Measure the required amount of water (refer to feeding guide) into a sterilised bottle. Be careful of scalding. Do not use artificially softened or repeatedly boiled water.
3 Using the scoop provided, level off the powder with the built in leveller. Do not press/heap the powder.
4 Add the correct measure of powder to the water. Adding too many or too few scoops can be harmful. Cap the bottle and shake vertically and vigorously (for 10 seconds) until the powder is dissolve. Remove cap and replace with a sterilised teat.
5 Cool under running tap. Check temperature of feed. Feed immediately.
Important feeding advice
Make up each feed as required.
For hygiene reasons, do not store made up feeds, discard un-finished 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.
