      Your baby’s health depends on carefully following the instructions below. Proper hygiene, preparation, dilution, use and storage are important when preparing infant formula. Powdered infant formulas are not sterile and should not be fed to premature infants or infants who might have immune problems unless directed and supervised by your baby’s doctor. Ask your baby’s doctor which formula is appropriate for your baby.

      Use the chart below for the correct amounts of cooled, boiled water and powder. Use scoop in can to measure powder. Store DRY scoop in this can.

      To Make Boiled Water Powder
      65 mL bottle 60 mL (1/4 cup) 2 unpacked level scoops
      130 mL bottle 120 mL (1/2 cup) 4 unpacked level scoops
      195 mL bottle 180 mL (3/4 cup) 6 unpacked level scoops
      260 mL bottle 240 mL (1 cup) 8 unpacked level scoops

      1 unpacked level scoop of powder weighs 4.5 g. Each scoop adds about 3 mL to the amount of prepared formula.

      WARNING: Do not use a microwave oven to warm formula. Serious burns may result.

      Failure to follow these instructions could result in severe harm. Once prepared, infant formula can spoil quickly. Either feed immediately or cover and store in refrigerator at 2-4°C (35-40°F) for no longer than 24 hours. Do not use prepared formula if it is unrefrigerated for more than a total of 2 hours. Do not freeze prepared formula. After feeding begins, use formula within one hour or discard.

      Powder Storage: Store cans at room temperature. After opening can, keep tightly covered, store in dry area and use contents within 1 month. Do not freeze powder and avoid excessive heat.
