Wash hands and all feeding utensils well.
Boil all feeding items for 5 minutes. Close cleaned, dry bottles until used.
Boil fresh water for 5 minutes; allow to cool down to lukewarm before pouring into bottle.
Prepare one feed at a time. Only use the scoop provided with the formula - scoop sizes vary between brands. Read the label carefully to see the recommended volume of the feed according to your baby's age and/or weight and the amount of water to be mixed with a scoop of formula powder. Level each scoop with the back of a clean, dry knife.
If formula needs to be warmed, it should be done with a bottle warmer or by placing the bottle in a container of warm water. Do not warm in a microwave (creation of hotspots with the risk of causing burns). Do not warm for longer than 15 minutes (certain bacteria may start to proliferate). An appropriate temperature for the formula is between room and body temperature. Test a few drops on the inside of your wrist to check the temperature before you offer it to your baby.
Any infant formula not consumed within 2 hours should be discarded. Leftovers should never be reheated, refrigerated or saved for the next feed.
