How to use

Please ensure you read and follow all instructions carefully, as adding too much or too little formula to the baby’s bottle, beaker or cup could be harmful and make them ill.

1. Before you start, wash your hands and sterilise all utensils according to manufacturers’ instructions, alternatively you can boil them for 10 minutes. After 6 months of age, if you are using a beaker, it is not necessary to sterilize the equipment, however please make sure everything has been fully cleaned

2. Boil 1 litre of fresh tap water (not bottled water) and allow to cool for no more than 30 minutes. Do not use artificially softened water or repeatedly boiled water

3. Carefully pour the correct amount of warm, previously boiled water into the beaker or bottle.

4. Fill the enclosed scoop with powder, levelling with the back of a clean, dry, knife. Do not pack down in the scoop

5. Add one scoop of powder to each 60 ml of water. Only use the scoop provided. Adding too many or too few scoops can be harmful

6. Place the cap on the beaker (or bottle) and shake gently until completely dissolved. If you are using a bottle, remove the cap and replace with a sterilised teat

7. Test the temperature of the formula (drops should feel lukewarm on the inside of your wrist) and if necessary, cool by holding the beaker/bottle under cold running water

8. Feed immediately

Important additional information

  • Proper hygiene, handling and storage are important when preparing follow-on milk. Whilst they are made under hygienic conditions, powdered follow-on formulas are not sterile.
  • Discard any milk that has not been used within 2 hours.
  • For hygiene reasons, we recommend you make up each drink as required.


  • Store unopened under normal room conditions.
  • Once opened, replace the lid to keep the formula tightly covered and store in a cool, dry place (not the refrigerator).
  • Use within 3 weeks of opening.

Hazards and Cautions

Suggested feeding guide

Babies’ nutritional requirements will vary, but after 6 months, once weaning is established, your baby will need around 500 - 600 ml of milk each day. Please speak to your healthcare professional if you require further advice.

Prepared milk may be fed from a cup, and for older children can be mixed with cereal or other solid foods. However, please never add any food into your baby’s bottle or beaker.

If necessary, offer cooled boiled water between feeds.

Never leave your baby alone at feeding times.

Important notice

Breast milk is best for babies and is recommended for as long as possible during infancy.

Similac Stage 2 is only suitable for babies over 6 months as part of a mixed diet.

Always speak to your doctor, midwife or health visitor for advice about feeding your baby.

The decision to start weaning or to use this product before 6 months should only be made on the advice of a healthcare professional, based on your baby’s individual needs.

Good dental hygiene is important for babies and toddlers, please speak with your healthcare professional or dentist for advice. Always clean your baby’s teeth after the last feed at night.

Son liked it. So I'm happy Have tried a few brands and my son seems to like this. I would buy again. July 17, 2016
Prefer my usual brand I was given this milk to try & my baby loves it just as much as our usual brand. However from a parent point of view there are a couple of is a lot more expensive than my usual brand and there is no convenient leveller in the tub to level each scoop, therefore I have to get a clean knife out each time. July 20, 2016
Perfect for weaning Easy to follow instructions and easy to make up a bottle of this, my son enjoyed it and is perfect for weaning babies off breastfeeding. July 21, 2016
