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. 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.
2) Using the scoop provided, level off the powder with the built in leveller. Do not press/heap the powder.
3) Add the correct measure of powder to the water. Adding too many or too few scoops can be harmful. Cap the bottle and shake well (for 10 seconds) to dissolve the powder. Remove cap and replace with a sterilised teat.
4) Cool under running tap. Check temperature of feed. Feed immediately.
