Breastfeeding is best for babies and provides many benefits. It is important that, in preparation for and during breastfeeding, you eat a healthy, balanced diet. Combined breast and bottle feeding in the first weeks of life may reduce the supply of your own breastmilk, and reversing the decision not to breastfeed is difficult. The social and financial implications of using an infant milk should be considered. Improper use of an infant milk or inappropriate foods or feeding methods may present a health hazard.
If you use an infant milk, you should follow manufacturer’s instructions for use carefully – failure to follow the instructions may make your baby ill. Always consult your doctor, midwife or health visitor for advice about feeding your baby.

Our easy-to-follow guide shows you how to prepare a bottlefeed safely using our powder formula.
Wash hands and sterilise all equipment according to manufacturers' instructions.
Boil 1 litre of freshly run tap water. Leave kettle to cool for 30 minutes and no longer. Measure required amount of water (refer to on-pack feeding guide) into a sterilised bottle. Be careful of scalding. Do not use artificially softened or repeatedly boiled water.
Using the scoop provided, level off the powder with the built-in leveller. Do not press/heap extra powder into scoop.
Add correct measure of powder to water. Adding too many or too few scoops can be harmful. Place the sterilised lid on the beaker and shake immediately, vertically and vigorously for at least 10 seconds, until the powder is dissolved.
Cool under running tap. Check temperature of feed by allowing some drops to fall on your wrist. Feed immediately.
