Direction of Use

The health of the infant depends on carefully following the directions for preparation and use. Incorrect preparation can make the baby ill.

 
Use only the scoop provided. Each level scoop (4.4g) of Locasol formula requires 30ml of water to yield the recommended feed concentration (13.1% w/v).
 
When preparing any infant feed, please follow the guidelines below:
 
  1. Wash hands thoroughly and clean the preparation area. Sterilise bottles and teats (if using).
  2. Boil fresh water for five minutes and allow to cool for at least 30 minutes so that it feels warm to the wrist. Pour the required amount of water into a sterilised feeding bottle.
  3. Fill the scoop provided with infant formula and level off with a clean dry knife. Do not press the powder into the scoop. Only use the scoop provided.
  4. Add the prescribed number of scoops of infant formula to the water. Replace cap on the bottle and shake until powder is dissolved. Before feeding, ensure that the formula is at the correct temperature by placing a few drops on the wrist.
  5. Formula remaining in the bottle after one hour of feeding should be discarded. Formula must not be rewarmed during feeding.
