Before starting, wash hands with soap and water and dry using a clean cloth. Clean the feed preparation surface thoroughly. Clean all equipment and utensils (e.g. feeding cup) in hot soapy water and then rinse thoroughly in clean water. Next, sterilise all equipment and utensils using a commercial steriliser, or by completely submerging in a pan of water and bringing to a rolling boil for 5 minutes (allowing all air bubbles to escape). Cover the pan until the feeding equipment is needed. If feeding and preparation equipment are removed prior to use, keep the fully assembled feeding cups covered in a clean place.
Boil drinking water in a pan or kettle. Read the feeding guide instructions on the product can to find out how much water and powder is needed. Taking care to avoid scaling, pour the required amount of water into a sterilised feeding bottle. The water should be no cooler than 70⁰C, so do not leave it for more than 30 minutes after boiling.
Using only the enclosed scoop, fill scoop and level off using the built-in leveller. Avoid compacting powder. Add the exact amount of formula specified in the feeding guide on this can to the water in the feeding cup. Always add 1 level scoop of powder for each 50mL of water. Mix thoroughly by shaking gently or swirling the bottle to dissolve the powder.
Immediately cool to feeding temperature by holding the feeding cup under cold running water, or by placing in a container of cold or iced water (make sure none of this water gets into the feed).
Check the temperature of the feed by dripping a little amount onto the inside of the caregiver’s wrist. It should feel lukewarm, not hot. If it still feels hot, cool some more before feeding. Feed your baby immediately (throw away any feed that has not been consumed within 2 hours).

Breastfeeding is best for babies and provides the optimal balance of nutrition and protection during growth and development.
Good maternal nutrition is important in preparation for and during breastfeeding. If you are considering bottle feeding, always seek professional advice as introducing bottle feeding, either partially or exclusively, may adversely affect breastfeeding by reducing the amount of your own breast milk supply and may be difficult to reverse should you change your mind. Consider the financial and social implications when deciding on a feeding method for your baby.
Improper or unnecessary use of infant formula may affect the health of your baby, therefore, always prepare and use as per the manufacturer’s instructions.
