Direction of Use
  1. Wash hands before preparing the feed. Clean and then sterilise all utensils by boiling for 5 minutes or using an approved steriliser.
  2. Prepare each bottle separately. Use cooled safe drinking water, that has recently been boiled. CONSULT FEEDING GUIDE. Measure the required volume of water into a sterilised feeding bottle.
  3. Use only the enclosed scoop. Always use a dry scoop. Fill the scoop lightly and level off using the built-in leveller. Avoid compacting the powder.
  4. Always add 1 level scoop of powder for each 50mL of water. Cap the bottle and shake briskly to dissolve the powder.
  5. Test temperature on wrist before feeding. Feed immediately and discard unfinished formula within 2 hours.


Infants over 6 months should be offered foods in addition to formula.


Dental hygiene: A cup can be introduced to your baby at around 6 months. Putting your baby to bed with a bottle or cup can cause tooth decay.

BREAST MILK IS BEST FOR BABIES: Professional advice should be followed before using an infant formula. Introducing partial bottle feeding could negatively affect breast feeding. Good maternal nutrition is important for breast feeding and reversing a decision not to breast feed may be difficult. Infant formula should be used as directed. Proper use of an infant formula is important to the health of the infant. Social and financial implications should be considered when selecting a method of feeding.
