Cow & Gate first infant milk is a nutritionally complete breastmilk substitute suitable from birth onwards. It can be used for combination feeding or if baby is not being breastfed.

How to use

To Serve

Because powdered milks are not sterile, failure to follow instructions may make your baby ill. Wash hands and sterilise all utensils according to
manufacturers' instructions. Boil freshly run water. Leave kettle to cool for 30 minutes. Do not use artificially softened or repeatedly boiled water.
Measure the required amount of water (refer to feeding guide) into a sterilised bottle. Do not add powder to boiling water due to risk of scalding.
Using the scoop provided, level off the powder with the built-in leveller. Do not press/heap the powder. Add one scoop to every 30 ml (1 fl oz) of
boiled cooled water. Add the correct number of scoops to the water. Adding too many or too few scoops scan be harmful. Replace seal on bottle.
Shake well (for 10 seconds) to dissolve powder. Remove seal, replace with a sterilised teat. Cool under running tap. Check temperature of feed.
Feed immediately.

For hygiene reasons, do not store made up feeds. Make up each feed as required and always discard unfinished feeds after 2 hours. If necessary
offer cooled boiled water between feeds. Do not heat in a microwave. Hot spots may occur and cause scalding.

Breastfeeding is best for babies. It is recommended that Cow & Gate first infant milk from newborn be used only on the advice of a doctor,
midwife, health visitor, public health nurse, dietitian, pharmacist, or other professional responsible for maternal and child care. When bottle

feeding do not allow prolonged or frequent contact of milk feeds with your baby's teeth as this increases the risk of tooth decay. Ask your Health
Professional or Dentist for advice. Make sure your baby's teeth are cleaned after the last feed at night. Never leave your baby alone during
