Karicare Gold+ Infant Formula Stage 1 is our nutritionally complete infant formula and breast milk substitute, designed to meet the needs of bottle-fed infants from birth. It is made by Nutricia, who have over 100 years of experience caring for babies and children.

At Karicare, we’re committed to supporting sustainability. That’s why all of our formula tins, including the lid and scoop, are 100% recyclable. Simply pop them into your home recycling bin once they’re empty.

Step 1:

  • Wash hands before preparing the feed. Sterilise all utensils by boiling, for 5 minutes, or using an approved steriliser.

Step 2:

  • Boil safe drinking water and allow to cool to feeding temperature.
  • Measure the required volume of cooled, boiled water into a cup or bottle.

Step 3:

  • Use only the enclosed scoop. Fill the scoop lightly & level off using the built in leveller. Avoid compacting powder.

Step 4:

  • Always add one level scoop of powder for each 50ml of water. Stir or shake briskly to dissolve the powder.

Step 5:

  • Test temperature on wrist before feeding. Feed immediately (do not store). Discard unfinished feeds.

Whether you’re new to formula feeding or have plenty of experience, our Careline team is on hand to help answer any questions you have.

Supporting choices for mums

Before you enter, please read this important statement:

If you are able, breastfeeding is best. It provides all the nutritional health benefits as Mother Nature intended. In readying for and during breastfeeding, it's important that mums eat a healthy, balanced diet.

If you're considering bottle feeding, seek professional medical advice first. Introducing bottle feeding either partially or exclusively, may reduce the supply of your own breast milk, which makes reversing the decision not to breast feed difficult. Also consider the social and financial implications, such as convenience and cost over time.

When using infant formula, always follow the instructions for use carefully, unnecessary or improper use may make your baby ill.
