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. Ask your baby's doctor about the need to use cooled, boiled water for mixing and the need to boil clean utensils, bottles, and nipples in water before use. 1.) Wash hands thoroughly with soap and water before preparing formula. 2.) Pour desired amount of water into bottle. Pour entire contents of packets(s) into bottle. 3.) Cap bottle and shake well.

^Each packet adds about 0.4 fl oz to the amount of prepared formula.
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 35-40°F (2-4°C) 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. Store unopened packets at room temperature. Do not freeze powder and avoid excessive heat. Additional tips to reduce fussiness and gas: Feed her smaller amounts. If your baby is crying and frantic with hunger, calm her before the feeding to prevent her from gulping air. Keep your baby in an upright position while you feed her. Burp your baby after every 2-3 fl oz.
