MILK-BASED POWDER – ADD WATER
Directions for Preparation and Use
Your baby’s health depends on carefully following the preparation, use, and storage instructions below.
Ask your baby’s doctor about infant formula-feeding* including how much to feed and the need to sterilize (boil) water and preparation utensils before mixing formula. Powdered infant formulas are not sterile and should not be fed to premature infants or infants who may have immune problems unless directed and supervised by your baby’s doctor.
Always wash your hands and utensils before preparing formula.
Pour desired amount of water into a clean empty bottle before adding any formula. Replace cap on water if using bottled water.
Add 1 unpacked level scoop (8.9 g) of powder for every 2 fl. oz. of water. (Only use enclosed scoop.) See chart below for other amounts.
Cap bottle; SHAKE WELL. Feed your baby immediately OR refrigerate and use bottle within 24 hours. Once feeding begins, use within 1 hour or discard.
Do not use microwave to warm formula. Serious burns may result.
Tightly cover open container and use within 1 month. Store open and unopened canisters in a cool, dry place. Avoid extreme storage temperatures.
