Made in New Zealand

Age Safe drinking water Level Scoops Of Powder* Number Of Feeds Per Day
Birth – 2 weeks 50mL 1 up to 10
2 – 4 weeks 100mL 2 6 – 7
1 –2 months 150mL 3 5 – 6
3 – 4 months 150mL 3 5 – 6
5 – 6 months 200mL 4 4 – 5

*1 scoop = 7.3g of powder. NOTE: 1 scoop of powder added to 50mL of water yields approximately 55mL of formula. This feeding guide is a general guide ONLY; your baby may need more or less than shown.

Step 1:

Wash hands before preparing the feed. Clean and then sterilise all utensils by boiling for 5 minutes or using an approved steriliser.

Step 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.

Step 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.

Step 4:

Always add 1 level scoop of powder for each 50mL of water. Cap the bottle and shake briskly to dissolve the powder.

Step 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.

It is safer to prepare each bottle as needed and use immediately after it is prepared. If a bottle of made-up formula is to be prepared in advance, store at the back of the fridge (2-4°C) and use within 24 hours. Discard any refrigerated formula not used within 24 hours.
