Always wash hands with soap and water and dry using a clean cloth. Clean the preparation surface thoroughly before preparing a feed.
Clean all feeding equipment in hot soapy water and rinse thoroughly. Next, sterilise all feeding equipment by submerging bottles, teats and lids in a pan of water and boiling for 5 minutes, or using an approved steriliser.
Boil safe drinking water and allow to cool for 30 minutes.
Refer to the feeding guide instructions on this can to check how much powder and water is needed. Pour the correct amount of previously boiled (now cooled) water into the sterilised bottle.
Use only the enclosed scoop, fill scoop and level off using the built-in leveler on the can. Avoid compacting powder.
Add the exact amount of powder to the water in the bottle. Always add 1 level scoop of powder for each 50ml of water. Cap the bottle and mix thoroughly by shaking gently or swirling the bottle to dissolve the powder.
Check the temperature of feed on the inside of your wrist before feeding. It should feel warm, but cool is better than too hot. Feed your baby immediately. Discard any feed that has not been consumed within 1 hour.

Breastfeeding is best for babies and provides the optimal balance of nutrition and protection during growth and development, while the use of any kind of formula milk may put infants and children at risk of diarrhoea, chest infections and other illnesses and their mothers at a higher risk of breast cancer. In light of this, babies should be exclusively breastfed for the first 6 months of life and with the introduction of nutritionally adequate and safe complementary foods from 6 months, continue breastfeeding for up to 2 years of age or beyond.
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 as your baby may refuse to be fed by breastfeeding. Consider also the financial and health implications when deciding on a feeding method for your baby.
