Do not add extra powder or water to make the feeds stronger or weaker and do not press powder into scoop. Using too much or too little powder can make your baby ill.


We recommend preparing each feed in individual beaker/bottles when required.


For hygienic reasons, discard unfinished feed in the beaker/bottle as soon as possible.


Made-up formulae can be poured over cereals and mixed with food.


Do not alter or add to formulae unless medically directed.


Do not warm feeds in a microwave, hot spots may occur and cause scalding.
